In the preplacement talk, they told if anyone has worked on a live project or maybe has made an app we should mail them about this. I mailed them about my Pocket Engineering App and I am working on a live college website, a well-detailed mail with attachments, and its achievements.
Out of 192, only 46 qualified this round and gave interviews.
Day 2: 27 September 2020
My interview start time 10:20 AM. It was supposed to be the first normal tech interview then another interview where the director himself (CTO – Sameer Tanna) will take, but I guess CTO himself took my first interview as I had emailed them. (as mentioned earlier.) The interview started with my mail to them, all the project-based questions were asked (why, how, what, all types of project-related questions.)
Few OOPs based (Abstract vs Interface, etc)
He asked about a few things which they work in their company I was not aware of and I said Sorry I am not familiar with these technologies and concepts.
1st programming questions: I solved in 15 mins but naive approach. He told me to optimize it, I took some time and did in O(n).
Then a probability-based question, not an easy one, it took some time he helped me and I answered but then a further question on that was asked I guess you should answer that without taking his help, I did the same.
2nd Programming question: harder one – It took most of my time, my approach mattered he was noticing everything. He gave me 2-3 test cases all worked and done.
3rd Programming question: Based on the thing the company works (Fintech based). I took some time but I solved it.5 test cases – he gave one by one, last case didn’t work he gave me some time I solved in 5 mins (I had forgotten to give a stopping condition in while loop).
He asks everything, what was the error, how you solve at every step, and even for earlier questions.
(Note it was on google meet and I was presenting my screen the entire time, and I was coding in python)
Lastly HR type of questions, Your career goal, why TSS, and few more.
And any questions about me, I asked two questions
By this it was 3:45 PM (10:20 AM to 3:45 PM) 20 mins lunch break was given.
Within 20 mins or, so I got my mail for the next interview, time 4:45 PM to 5:05 PM
Typical HR questions, questions on the resume, hobbies, family background, where do you live, how will you travel, etc etc. and lastly any questions for me?
This was 2:1.
She at last added “We hope to see you soon after this situation gets over”
So I knew I am selected.
11:45 PM list came of the people who will have an interview on 28 September and a list of people as of then selected.
Note: Interview experience varied a lot, people had 1st interview taken by a company employee and then CTO took and the last HR (so 3 interviews). Few were gone through group problem-solving.
All The Best!
