SapientNitro Interview Experience

1. Recruitment process

  • There was a written test which had four sections. Technical, Logical Reasoning, Quantitative Aptitude, Verbal Ability.
  • Shortlisted candidate went for technical interview round.
  • Then further shortlisted candidate went for hr interview round
  • Those who got shortlisted after the hr round got the full time offer.



2. Questions and answers
 

Written Test



  • Technical sections had questions from almost all the sections(C, C++, DBMS, DS, OS)
  • Quantitative aptitude’s questions were good.. All were almost of R. S. Aggarwal’s level though few exceptions were there too
  • Logical reasoning and verbal ability was good.. Some questions were tough.

Technical Interview

  • The first question i was asked “what is polymorphism” ???
  • Is Java only language to provide run time polymorphism ???
  • Write a code for stack using linked list(when writing any code keep the boundary conditions in mind)
  • Write an algorithm to find the loop in a given linked list(i did it with two pointers), then i was asked if we can do it with one pointer(yes, using extra space of course). Then i was asked if we really need any pointer??
  • Next question was regarding dbms, a table was given and i was asked to write three different tpe of queries to insert data in that table
  • Then the next question was about joins in dbms. First theory and then two tables were given and i was asked to perform each type of join on it
  • A puzzle was also asked “we have a car which had 5 tyres(4 in use and 1 spare). The car had traveled 20,000 miles and all of its tyres has covered equal amount of distance and all the tyres has reached their maximum limit and thus all are busted. What is the maximum limit of each tyre ”

HR Interview

  • It started with “tell me something about your self”
