Interview Questions

Ques. Introduce yourself to the readers

Hi, I am Aryan Gupta. I am a Computer Engineering Student. My technical and non-technical skills have always been in balance. I’ve always worked on both sides and that is why I actually reaped the benefits of going into a MNC this time because I focused on all aspects of my personality.

Ques. What was the difficulty level of the interview? (1- very easy, 10-very difficult)


Ques. What was the procedure of the placement that took place? (Shortlisting criteria/ coding or aptitude test/ number of interviews)

The first was a written test and after that one interview round was conducted. So we were lucky there was just one round of interview and that too was after two days of the list coming out for the shortlisted student, so we had ample time to prepare. The interview that was conducted was a mixture of HR questions and technical questions.  They were unsure about having one round this time. I think they were a little stringent about who they hired this time, but then they still went with one round only. I think there were around 37 students shortlisted in total and 11 got the final offer.

Ques. Tell us about the written/online test. (Aptitude, Coding, Test Platform, etc)

The written test was on HackerEarth and it was for 90 minutes. In the test, I believe there were around 14 questions, out of which eleven or twelve were MCQs, and then probably three questions where we had to write code. Where one code was just the normal data structures and algorithms code, second one was a python code and another was a SQL query where you had to write just one query for a database, and the rest were MCQs. The pool of questions was not very big. So around 20 questions must have been circulating for everyone.
