From the combined result of 3rd and 4th round approx 8 were sent to the 5th round which was managerial round.
Round 5: F2F Interview Managerial Round.
The interviewer was very experienced person, though he was very friendly in nature. He made me comfortable as he saw I was a bit nervous. He asked me about my internship projects as I mentioned it on my Resume, and dived deep into the technical details. As I was well prepared and knew the things, I could explain him in a better way, which I believe, gave me a huge benefit. He seemed impressed from my in-depth knowledge. Then he asked me 2 puzzles, luckily I could solve the both. Then he signalled me to move to HR round.
Approximately 5 could make it to HR.
Round 6: HR Round
Worlds most famous HR questions like:
- Where do you see your self 5 years down the line?
