Round 1

Test

Interview Experience
This interview was also HR cum technical round but it was known as a bar raiser round.
I am not sure how to spell it too. The questions were almost the same as in the 3rd interview
with additional questions like  “ how did you react in conflicting situations in four year career ? “.
This round also ended with technical questions :
a) Given a doubly linked list where the next pointer is pointed to the next node in
that list but the previous pointer is pointing to any random node. I was asked to make a
similar list efficiently . [ Simply a xerox of it ]
b) The second question was a string based traversing and pattern matting type
where there were given two strings ‘A’ and ‘B’.
I was asked to return true if all the characters in ‘B’ were present in ‘A’ or else
return false. I explain many solutions in which he asked me to code for a particular
solution and he verified the code by iterating though the test cases.
The round ended with few personal questions on experience and my future role. So, I was into
Amazon after a week of discussions :)
