• Last Updated : 05 Oct, 2021

Flipkart visited our campus virtually for placements in January 2021. Students of CS and circuit branches were eligible. Recruitment process consisted of 4 rounds in total (1 coding test, 3 interviews). Recruitment procedure is as follows:

Round 1- (Online Test) – Three questions were asked in 90 minutes. Test was on HackerRank platform.

(i) Question similar to coin change problem. https://practice.geeksforgeeks.org/problems/coin-change2448/1

(ii) Maximum level sum in a binary tree.

(iii) A state consists of n cities. All roads in city are bidirectional. We have to find the length of shortest route between two given cities, with a twist that you can eliminate the distance between any “k” connected cities (eliminate a distance means you can make distance between two connected cities as 0, you can do this “k” times).

12 students were shortlisted for interviews out of ~250 students.

Round 2- (Technical interview 1) – Two DSA questions were asked in this round in 45 min.

(i) Largest sum contiguous sub array

(ii) Maximum sum in array such that no adjacent elements are selected.

Round 3- (Technical interview 2) – Again 2 DSA questions were asked in this round in 45 min.

(i) Two arrays A and B are given and all elements in both the array are same except one. We have to find the missing element.https://practice.geeksforgeeks.org/problems/in-first-but-second5423/1 (Later, he also asked about the case of multiple missing elements).

(ii) Celebrity problem of geeksforgeeks.

Round 4 – (Managerial Round) – Round started with basic introduction. Then he asked me about almost all the points I have written in my resume like technical team I was part of, projects, internships, etc. He asked questions in detail about the internship. Finally he asked some generic HR question like strengths, weaknesses, etc.

Finally 5 students were selected and I was one of them. I would like to thank geeksforgeeks for helping me throughout my journey in placement preparation.
