Amdocs Interview Experience (On-Campus)
After getting rejected from 4 companies, finally I got a company for which I could jot down my interview experience. Amdocs visited our campus in the first week of October for the role of Software Developer and System Analyst.
ROUND 1 (Online Aptitude): This round had 5 sections.
- Verbal Reasoning
- Objectives on PL/SQL and Unix
- Coding, this section had 4 coding questions.
- Based on arrays. (choice between c/c++/Java)
- Based on graphs.(Choice between c/c++/java)
- Based SQL query using order by, Limit.
- Based SQL query using joins, Order by, group by, Limit, sum, average.
- Technical objectives.
- The choice between C/C++/java to solve the MCQs.
ROUND 2 (Psychometric Test): This was a 15 mins test that had 50 objective type questions. This was not a pass or fail test, this round was taken just to check your decisions in different situations.
ROUND 3(Technical Interview): This round lasted for about an hour. The first and very obvious question was to INTRODUCE YOURSELF! I was well versed with Python as I had mentioned it in my introduction, but the role actually involved working more using c++/java. So, the interviewer asked me if I had any experience with those languages, and I had a basic knowledge of c++/java, so I did not face any problem with these questions. He asked me to choose between any one of those and I choose c++.
Questions on OOP:
- What is OOP?
- Basic concepts of OOP?
- Explain polymorphism, abstraction, encapsulation, inheritance with real-life examples.
Questions on DSA:
- What is a binary search tree?
- What is preorder, inorder, post order traversal?
Questions on Coding:
- What is operator overloading?
- Write a code in c++/java to explain the concept and overload ‘+’ operator.
- Write a code to check if a number was even or odd using functions. He modified the question later and asked how to write the same logic without using the ‘%’ (modulo) operator.
Questions on DBMS:
- Which SQL query have you worked on?
- I was asked to write 8-9 queries on different situations which included the use of different types of joins, average, sum, group by, order by, limit functions.
Questions on Quantitative:
- Only one question was asked about finding the next group of alphabets in the series given.
ROUND 4 (HR Interview): Lasted for about 15mins.
- Introduce yourself.
- Family background.
- Why do you want to join Amdocs?
- Your strength and weaknesses.
- Your achievements.
- Are you comfortable working in shifts?
- Do you have any plans for higher studies?
- Have you interviewed any other company before?
- Always smile when you answer any question and answer confidently, its okay if your answer is incorrect, but if you have good confidence that overcomes your flaws.
- Try not to panic because even this shows you are not capable of handling stress.
- If you’re stuck in any question ask the interviewer for a few minutes and try to write the solution calmly on your paper.
- Even then if you are not able to answer the question, there are absolutely no issues at all. You can just politely say you don’t know the answer.
- HR interviews are IMPORTANT. Prepare for all common HR interviews beforehand.
- Prepare a good introduction, this itself creates a good impression when your interview starts (This is important for any round, be it technical or HR).
I would like to thank geeksGeeksforGeeks for geeks for helping me with improving my coding skills. I reached here after getting rejected from 4 companies, I had almost lost all my hopes, but I knew I had practiced well and was still doing so, and with the positive hope, I did not give up and finally got placed in Amdocs!!
