  • I actually interviewed with Directi recently and while I found the HR very helpful and engaging-my final interview with Bhavin the CEO was a shocker. He is an extremely disagreeable man and has no manners to interact with candidates during his interview-rude,loud,opinionated and inconsiderate. I am glad I am not working for that company.
