Round 1

Test

Duration
60 Minutes
Interview Experience
40 people were short-listed on the basis of this test. Objective type test. Main topics were C coding, operating systems, data structures, quantitative skills and networking. They’ll ask you about your strength and then ask you questions based on that. Again knowledge of computer networks, operating systems, algorithms and data structures will be handy in the 1st round . They asked me questions on the working of a network from the user to switch to router, about ARP and MAC address tables,about IP addresses and subnets.Then there was a question on binary search trees and a few questions on operating systems as well. In the 2nd round, they asked me a question on memory management. Gave me 5 mins to come up with an answer. Knowledge of data structures and Operating Systems is needed and maybe a bit of algorithms.
Round 2

Technical Interview

Interview Experience
30 min interview. I had 2 techincal interviews; the second was of 5 mins.
Interview Tips
Don’t give up on a question easily. Keep trying. Interviewers judge you on your thought process and if you give up easily then it causes a negative impact.
Round 3

HR Interview

Interview Experience
This round is held if they want to take you in. You will be asked if you have any problem in relocating. They discuss the job profile and ask if you would prefer working alone or in a team.

    Skill Tips
    Selection is based purely on the interview. There is a written test which you have to clear first though. Absolutely no emphasis on cgpa. It’ll neither be an advantage nor a disadvantage. They’ll take you if you perform well in the interview. Knowledge of C/C++ is sufficient. My projects were related to computer networks so that was an advantage but they dont decide on basis of project. They’ll ask a few questions about the projects as all companies do.
    General Tips
    OS, CCN and data Structures should be read thoroughly not just for this company..most of the software/IT oriented companies ask questions pertaining to these topics.

Some basic questions on classes, inheritance and abstraction were also asked. Then they ventured into asking some questions on networking, but since I had not studied networking, I did not know the answers to those questions. I informed them about my lack knowledge in networking – I wasn't asked any further questions from the topic.
