Round 1: Technical:-

I was given a Coding puzzle for which the interviewer gave me around 15 mins to think and 5 mins to write the code on paper. It was Tree question with some trick in it. I solved it on paper . Then he asked the logic and explanation which I did. My Code was upto the mark for him.

Then he started asking questions on Stacks, Queues, DFS, Red Black Tree, Binary Tree, B+ tree, Shortest Path Algorithms etc.

After which he moved onto asking CS fundamental questions on DBMS, OS and one question on sftp network protocol as well.

This Round was about 1 Hr long.

I answered around 85% of those questions.

I cleared it.

PS: Got to know later that the Interviewer was AI head of Infosys 🙂



Round 2: HR :

After my introduction she asked me about my weaknesses first and then if I am good in team work and Hobbies etc. Easiest Round to be Honest.
