The company conducted a recruitment drive in the college for the position: Associate Software Engineer. The recruitment procedure was similar to other companies. Let’s discuss this in detail.

The recruitment procedure consisted of the following rounds:

Round 1:Aptitude/English Essay Test: 

This round consisted of the Questions based on Logical Ability, Quantitative Ability, and English. The Level of Aptitude Questions was easy. You can easily crack this round if you have basic knowledge of such a topic.

After an aptitude round, there was an essay writing in which I had to write on a specified topic in about 200-250 words in 15-20 minutes. The topic for me was Is Uniform Necessary In College or Not?

Suggestion: You should be prepared for solving Aptitude Questions as many MNCs conduct this test before the coding test.

Round 2:Technical & Psychometric Test: This round consisted of the three stages:

  • Stage 1:Technical Round: This stage consists of the technical questions on several technical subjects such as DBMS, OS, CN & DSA.

In Data Structure and Algorithms, the questions were mainly about time and space complexity.

  • Stage 2:Coding Test: This test consisted of 2 questions on topics such as basic programming, arrays, strings, etc. The First question was easy and the second question was medium level.
    • Question 1:Complete a function to convert decimal numbers to binary numbers (Basic Programming)
    • Question 2:Complete a function to find the longest palindromic substring(String Based)

You need to pass all the test cases(public and hidden) in both questions.

  • Stage 3:Pyschometric Test: This test consisted of 50 questions, the majority of the questions were attitude based. I had to select one option out of five options given which are as follows:-

These tests mainly explore a person’s attitude, skills, and interests to assess personality.
