Sapient Interview Experience for ASDE-1 (Off-Campus 2021)

  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 31 Aug, 2021

Round 1 (Online Coding Round)

The first round was an online coding round where I had to solve 2 coding questions. The questions I got were both basic DP-based questions.

1. Based on 0-1 knapsack problem

2. Based on Max Sum Path in a matrix from a given cell in the top row to a given cell in the bottom row. From a cell we could only move down, down left, downRight

Round 2 (Domain Interview)

This was a technical round that started with the introduction and project explanations.

Then Basic CS fundamental questions related to:- 

CN – OSI Model and its layers

OS – Process vs Thread, Multithreading 

OOP – 

1. Encapsulation, Abstraction, Inheritance, and real-world examples of these.

2. Abstract classes and why did we need them when the inheritance was there?

Others – What is DevOps, UML Diagrams.

Coding Question – Print all palindromic substrings of a given string

SQL Query- A simple group by the query (There is a table with people and places traveled, I had to print the person with max distinct places traveled).

At last, the interviewer asked if I had any questions – I asked a few (Always ask questions at the end of the interview)

After one and a half hours I got a call for the next round.

Round 3 (Core Values Round)

This was a short behavioral round of 25 mins which again started with introduction and project/internship explanations.

Then he threw some situation based questions like – 

1. If you and your peer have some conflict of thoughts, how have would you react and resolve it.

2. Tell me any real-life experience of yours where you had a conflict with your fellow-mate? How you resolved it?

and some other questions which I don’t remember exactly…

At last, he asked if I had any questions so I asked a few (I remember at last I asked about location preference if selected to which he answered that he would be happy to have me at any location, which kinda gave me some idea that I would be selected : )

After 2 days I got a call from HR that I was selected : )

The only tip I would give is to keep your basics clear and BE CONFIDENT in giving answers, explaining projects and internships. They are looking for confident folks.
