Round 7(Lead Director Level Zoom Interaction): (Duration 30 mins)
 

  • In this round, the interviewer started with an introduction and then asked me to explain my current project, explained about his team and what they do, the tech stack involved. 
  • I was asked about my aspirations and what I was looking for in GS.

In Rounds 6 and 7, I was not asked any interview questions. These rounds were scheduled just to know the candidate’s aspirations and expectations from GS and ask questions to them (if any) and also for them to interact with me.

After this, I was asked to submit documents and give my expected CTC details. The entire process from Hackerrank test to offer letter took approximately 2 months.

Verdict: Accepted Offer (Special mention – The HR/Recruiter was very friendly and responsive. Always attended calls and replied to emails on time)

In all the rounds, the interviewers were friendly, polite, and helpful. It’s not necessary to give all correct answers(partial answers are fine), rather your approach or thinking skills are tested. Good communication skills will be an advantage.
