Western Digital visited IGDTUW for hiring interns for the role of Firmware Development. There were a total of 3 rounds.

Round 1 (Online Round): It was an Online Aptitude Test with a total of 45 questions to be done in 45 mins. There were 4 sections 1) Aptitude – 15 questions, 2) C/C++ Programming – 10 questions, 3) DS and OS concepts – 10 questions, 4) Electronics – 10 questions. All sections were mandatory. The marking scheme was +1 for every correct answer and a -0.25 penalty for every wrong answer.

Round 2 (Technical Round – 1 hour 15 minutes): My interview was scheduled for 45 mins but it went for 1 hour 15 minutes. It started with a brief introduction about myself, then the interviewer asked me questions from my resume like about my projects and hobbies. After this, the following questions were asked:

  • What are pointers? He asked me to explain them along with the code.
  • Difference between structure and unions and their code implementation.
  • Question – Bit manipulation – Write a code to replace the 3rd bit in a binary number 10100 such that the answer is 10000.
Given x = 10100
Take a = 00100 as we have to switch the third bit. 
Now ~a = 11011
x AND a = 10100 & 11011 = 10000 ans.

Round 3 (Technical + HR round – 45 mins): It again started with a brief introduction and discussion about my projects. Then the interviewer asked me:

  • About my technical and non-technical skills.
  • He again discussed the coding question I did in the last interview.
  • What is a circular queue? How it is implemented? He then asked me about traversal and deletion in a circular queue.
  • What are scheduling algorithms in OS?
  • How many programming languages I have worked on? How would I rate myself in C/C++ (out of 10)?
  • Then he asked what it is to be a part of a team?
  • What do I know about the company?

Result: Selected
