Dell Internship Interview Experience | On-Campus 2021
DELL shortlisted around 170 students (mostly based on CGPA) in our college to appear for an Online Test, which was its first round for its Campus Internship Program. The platform for the online test was HirePro.
All the questions in the test were MCQs. They were divided into 3 sections:
- Aptitude – 10 questions, 15 minutes
- Technical – 33 questions, 45 minutes
- Code-based MCQs – 7 questions, 15 minutes
APTITUDE: The Aptitude section had questions of Problem Solving and Logical Reasoning types. The questions were from:
- Profit and Loss
- Time and Work
- Permutations and Combinations
- Ratio and Proportion
There were around 3 questions from Logical Reasoning in which there were some cities given with some properties and we had to answer questions about them.
TECHNICAL: The Technical Section covered Data Structures and Algorithms, Operating Systems, Relational Database Management Systems (mostly from SQL only), C programming language, Object-Oriented Programming, Computer Networks, Computer Organization, and Architecture and HTML and CSS as well.
However, the majority of the questions were from Data Structures and Algorithms covering:
- Circular Linked Lists
- DFS (Depth First Search)
- Binary Search Trees
CODE-BASED MCQs: In this section, first, there will be an option to select a language – C++ or Java. There will be a code snippet in the language you selected and you have to answer questions based on that, most of which were about to tell the output of the program.
These questions tested very in-depth knowledge of the language and included concepts of
- Object-Oriented Programming
Very fundamental questions were asked from the Object-Oriented Programming testing your in-depth understanding of Inheritance, Encapsulation as well as Polymorphism.
As per my opinion, the overall test was of Medium to Tough range in terms of difficulty level.
