Teradata Campus Interview Experience 2019

Teradata visited our campus for recruitment for Software Engineer role.


The first round comprised of 20 MCQ questions(45 minutes) including programming logic and technical quiz on hackerearth platform.

The technical part had questions from compiler design, computer organization, operating systems and algorithms.

I would suggest doing quizzes from geeksforgeeks to get in touch with all concepts of C and other subjects.

Tips: Solve the questions with a calm mind. Don’t stress yourself during the test because you have 45 minutes to solve 20 questions.

After the first round, 14 students were selected for the next round.
