Accolite visited our campus for hiring in the month of September. It had 4 rounds in total.
Round 1: Online test was conducted on the EduThrill platform. The test consisted of 30 MCQ questions which were to be solved in 30 minutes. The questions were related to DBMS, Data Structures, Sorting algorithms, aptitude, Computer Architecture, Operating System, and C output questions. More than 400 students appeared for the test. After this round around 200 students were shortlisted for the next round.
Round 2: The next part was a coding test which was conducted on the Codelyser platform. There was one coding question that was to be completed in 1 hour.
The question was a variation of the following question:-
34 people qualified for this round.
Round 3: Next was a Personal Interview round, Interviewer started with a general question and asked me to give an introduction after which he gave me his brief introduction after which he asked me if I know DSA I said yes, then asked if I know OOPs, I said yes. He gave a coding question similar to find the Duplicate numbers in an array in O(1) space and O(n) time.
I quickly solved that question which made my interviewer very happy then he asked me few questions related to Operating Systems based on the Paging concept and also a few questions on Normal forms in DBMS after which I was directly promoted to the final round without having the 4th round.
Round 4: This was a sponsored round, he started with some basic questions related to projects I have done then he told me that this would be my final round as my previous interviewer has given a good review about me, then he moved on to DSA and gave me a coding question which was very similar to the following question:-
He wanted me to code the solution on an online editor link to which was shared him, it took me around 20 minutes to write a well-commented code which kind of impressed him, after which I explained to him my code and passed all the test cases he had, after this, he started asking question-related to my projects and also few questions based on Object-Oriented Programing(OOPS), I was able to answer all the questions he asked me after which he gave me a real-life problem and told me to implement proper database tables that would be required for it (it was similar to online Shopping Cart Design) I took some time and then gave him my approach to the problem, we both had an in-depth discussion on that question. In the end, I asked him about his feedback and also things he thinks that I should focus more on.
This round took around 2.5 hours.
In the end, 10 students were shortlisted for the Full-Time SDE Offer, and I was one of them.
