Round 1

Duration
90 Minutes
No. of Questions
2 questions
Test Sections
  • Section 1: 2 coding questions on Hackerrank platform
Interview Experience
1)A Diamond is present on the nth step. A Boy wants to get it. He can jump either j steps or 1 step at a time. In how many steps will he get the Diamond(Very Easy)

2)This question can be solved either by DP or memoization. (Hard)

int one=0,zero=0;

void reco(int n){

if(n<=0) zero++;

if(n==1) one++;

else {

reco(n-1);

reco(n-2);

reco(n-3);

}}

given above program you have to print the value of one and zero.


** you can solve it directly by recursion but try doing that for 100 (1<=n<=100) the test case will take more than 10 sec ---meaning TIMEOUT

you need to optimize the code so to run it in time.

Thats when memoization comes into play.

This is what I remember, so don't get mad if the program is wrong...  you can try solving the codechef problem.

similar problem

if u have trouble solving the codechef problem then try editorial or search online how to solve it.
Interview Tips
The programs asked in this round are not lengthy, but takes a lot of time to thing, after that debugging is another issue.

So, choose your language wisely and learn its Standard library

C++ programmers learn how to use STL

Java also has standard library check it out.

practice easy level in hackerrank for few days and later shift to medium and hard

Interview Experience
You are provided with n and m values which denote the rows and columns

Rajesh starts from top most node(0,0)

1-He moves towards the point towards his right.

2-if he cannot move one point to the right, he rotates right and then takes the path to the right

3-if after performing 4 rotate operations , if he cannot move then he would stop.

print the number of nodes reached by him


sample 1:

3 3

output : 9

explanation:

rajesh faces -> direction first

the traversal is

1 2 9

4 3 8

5 6 7
Interview Tips
If u look at the problem  and test case u feel like it involves a lot of graphs. But you are provided with only 20 minutes, I cant solve it by approaching the problem that way.

So, I tried few more test cases and the logic is very simple

Don't look at the problem only one way. Trust your instincts
Round 3

Technical Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Given an array, how do you get the count of pairs that sum to even
  • Question 2: Given an array, how do you get the count of pairs that sum to odd
  • Question 3: You are getting requests for room allotment, each request will have the start time and end time of the request. Print the minimum number of room required to support all requests
Interview Experience
For Question 1 and 2, I gave a solution that is of O(N^2)  and O(N).

Try solving it yourself. (just have to explain on paper and they might ask u to write the sample code)

Third question: This problem I felt it tough.

I explained to the interviewer but the implementation of that is very tough.

Finally, He suggested me to use the sorting technique after the meeting is done.

Complexities of the system will be asked for your code
Round 4

        Skill Tips
        August would be the right time to start.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Rather than starting early, I think having a time-table for self would help a lot and make us stress-free.The material provided by the placement website is sufficient. But please form a coherent group of your wing-mates or friends so that you are not stressed out in your preparation. Group preparation does more good than harm. But make sure not to waste time! Pre-final semester....very precious!!!
        General Tips
        Choose your passion!







        Don’t be chasing things which others think are ‘cool-stuff’ to do. If you are really talented in your passion you can become the next ‘cool’







        1stYears: Try to put fight to get an awesome CGPA in the two semesters. It will be easier to maintain a good CG thereafter. Say NO to other extra-curricular activities but do keep track of them as you SHOULD do some for a good resume. A simple vol-ship may be okay if it is not time consuming.







        2ndyears: Decide whether you want to pursue your branch further or not. If yes, start reading more about your interest, do some projects and learn some academic software like MATLAB, Origin Pro etc. If you are not interested, then try various fields like Finance, Analytics.







        3rd& 4thyears: Don’t leave any opportunity in your chosen field and make use of all that insti can provide you
        Motivation for applying
        I got selected for Flipkart because I was well oriented for E-Commerce industry and well-versed with the jargon of that industry.

        Round 1

        Test

        Test Sections
          Interview Experience
          Though my CGPA wasn’t up to the mark, exemplary performance in the online test helped. But apart from a couple of guys, the rest of the ones who made it to the initial shortlist had a CG > 7.5. Online Test in Takshashila was conducted. GMAT/CAT model based. Quant, Verbal, and the likes. Ensure that you get the highest possible score. The students selected had more or less a full score in this test.
          Round 2

          Group Discussion

          Interview Experience
          GD with a group of around 10 was conducted. General Knowledge and Current Affairs are the requisite skills. The topic of my GD was “Aam Aadmi Party” Ensure that you contribute valuable points in the GD. In a group of 10 people, there isn’t much time to speak for more than a couple of minutes overall. But the points you make must be relevant and attention grabbing. Every person is required to conclude the GD. So, there’s a redeeming chance as well.
          Round 3

          Case Study Interview

          Interview Questions
            Interview Experience
            There are three different cases based on the designation you’ve applied to: Analyst, Operations, Technology. The case may sound really weird in the beginning, esp. for Operations. They are mainly based on Performance Appraisals and Remuneration Design (for Operations). But, there’s an inherent simple trick based on math skills and data interpretation, and presence of mind.
            Interview Tips
            You are given around 40 minutes to solve the case and write down the reasonings and method of solving. Make the best use of them. After this, you will have around 30 minutes to make the interviewer understand the method and approach of solving the case. Basic Quant Skills and Data Interpretation skills should sail you through. Don’t freak out. Just don’t. Everything else is easy. PS: Legible handwriting helps.
            Round 4

            HR Interview

            Interview Questions
              Interview Experience
              Basic resume drilling. Might Include a guesstimate question. The guesstimate may sometimes be based on the resume itself (like, in my case). For the guesstimate, math skills will help. And, a good flow chart approach to the problem.
              Interview Tips
              Don’t falter on the resume drilling. Stand on your answers and don’t backtrack. About the guesstimate, use logical assumptions with a sound base. And, a neat and tidy solving method will appeal to the HR interviewer (and to the Principal later) Lastly, Use a proper flowchart/mindtree.
              Round 5

              HR Interview

              Interview Questions
                Interview Experience
                HR interview again, but with the Principal of the company (a big shot guy) along with a HR assessment guy in a corner. It’s mainly done to test how you interact with people of high stature. There might be a basic math question, which is more of a Stress Interview than a check for your quant skills.
                Interview Tips
                The good news is that, if you make it to this round, you’re “almost” selected. All you need is presence of mind to crack this. To summarize, Don’t loss your cool. Don’t freak out. Appear confident. Basically, you are being screwed with. Keep this in your mind.

                  • Section 1: Quantitative Analysis + Data Interpretation
                  • Section 2: Logical Reasoning
                  • Section 3: Verbal Ability
                  Interview Experience
                  Test was conducted through CoCubes Portal and there was no negative marking. Three sections has 20 questions each and there was no restriction on time for individual sections. I was confident about 50 questions and probably that was close to the cut-off for shortlist.
                  Interview Tips
                  The questions are going to be easy. If you have prepared well for the CAT, it's not gonna be tough. Attempt Quantitative Analysis first and proceed with the other sections as per your convenience. There's no negative marking so make sure you attempt all the questions.

                  Is e-commerce affecting retail market?
                  Interview Experience
                  I started the GD, made 2-3 good points and concluded. The GD went ahead in a good direction and that's probably the reason 6-7 people of 10 were selected.
                  Interview Tips
                  - Try to be a leader right from the beginning
                  - Make sure GD doesn't become a fish market else all the group members will end up with nothing
                  - Read about e-commerce regularly. Be aware of all the developments.
                  - After you have made your points, give opportunities to others who haven't been able to speak. Helps you a lot.
                  - Prepare in groups. It was a real game changer for me.
                  Round 3

                  Guesstimate Interview

                  Interview Questions
                  • Question 1: Market size of electronics sold through all e-commerce websites together?
                  • Question 2: There will be CV questions as well in this round.
                  Interview Experience
                  Didn't do it really well. Was stuck initially but came on the right track by the end.
                  Interview Tips
                  This is one part where you need preparation. You MUST have an idea as to how to approach these type of questions. A cliche but yeah, answer isn't important, approach is. Ask your friends in IITs regarding books, especially from IIT B. Group studies help, believe it or not.
                  Round 4

                  HR Interview

                  Interview Questions
                  • Question 1: Basic situations questions like how do you manage people in work space and all?
                  • Question 2: CV questions may be there.
                  Interview Experience
                  My answers were a little short and I think I could have done better there.
                  Interview Tips
                  Take your time to think. Think of the most practical answer as in what you really would have done had you been in that situation. Explain why did you do so. Out of the box suggestions may work but they have their own risks. Use them if you're confidant.

                      The test was for around an hour. It consisted of quant and verbal sections. The questions were fairly simple, just the basic math and verbal understanding would suffice.

                      Group Discussion

                      Group Discussion Topic
                      “Lies, Damned Lies and Statistics”
                      Interview Experience
                      All the students shortlisted from the exam were divided ito 3 sets and 3 GDs were conducted. Each GD had 8 students. It lasted for 30 minutes I guess. My GD topic was way too vague. It was “Lies, Damned Lies and Statistics”. One thing that will help in a GD especially when you are not sure about the topic (like my case) is to listen patiently to others so that you get an idea as to what the topic is exactly about.
                      Interview Tips
                      A strict NO to cutting on someone when he/she is making a point and shouting in a loud tone. Both these indicate that you are not fit to be in a team and you are slightly dominating types respectively.

                          The other had a guesstimate and some HR questions. My guesstimate was to come up with number of vehicles on the Chennai roads between 5 to 6 in the evening. I was asked this because my resume had some decent points about my work and interest in transportation engineering. You need to have some decent knowledge on basic figures like the population of Chennai or India etc.,
                          I was asked some basic questions on Inventory model as I had mentioned that my minor was IE.

                          Initially the exam was planned to be conducted for everyone but due to some tech issues and time constraints they came up with CG based shortlisting for the exam at the last minute. After that, shortlisting in every other round was performance-based.

                          1st years- Explore everything in insti and try to know what you real interests are but never ignore ACADS.

                          2nd years- Try to decide on what you want to do after graduating. Depending on it start doing things, like putting fight for relevant PoRs or taking up projects if interested in or atleast considering apping.

                          3rd years- Start preparing for CAT, GRE, ToEFL Whatever it is, be placements, go for an MBA in IIMs, app; CGPA matters. So never ignore acads.

                            Written Test:There was a written test for selection. It had 60 questions in 60 minutes. 20 questions were from verbal reasoning and 40 were from quantitative analysis and simple reasoning. The cut off was 47 questions correct out of 60, the test was of medium difficulty level and you just had to be quick with calculations.
                            There were 4-5 sections in the test with each section containing 10-15 questions. There were sections on verbal reasoning, data interpretation and simple geometry. The test was not an elimination test and every candidate who appeared for the test was called for the GD.
                            TIP:::It would help a lot if you prepare for CAT.
                            Interview Tips

The other topics were, 'BIT –The best institute: Why or Why not' and 'Indian economy on low tide or high tide'. They were looking for people who had complete knowledge about this sector and were fluent in English and were able to steer the group to a conclusion. Since I am an IAS aspirant I have been regularly reading newspapers for quite some time hence GDs were never really much of a problem for me. In fact I spoke a lot of relevant points during my GDs.The topic of GD for my group was ‘Which is Better: Public services or Private Services.’ Some of the topics that were allotted to other groups were on issues like the Lokpal Bill and the FDI.

                            Interview Experience
                            Interview:There was a single interview round. An imporant part of the interview was that we had to walk them through our resume. The questions asked here were mainly HR questions and questions based on small case studies. The general HR questions asked to me were the very common ones mentioned above.The interviewer was a graduate from IIT MUMBAI in mechanical engineering. He asked me some basic questions and told me exactly how Flipkart operates. He asked me to talk about myself. Then he inquired about my 3rd year internship. I told him about the kind of work I did in my internship. Lastly he asked me that if offered posting in Bangalore or further south which would I prefer. To this I replied saying that I would prefer a posting somewhere in north India. I believe that this is the primary reason why I squandered my chances of getting recruited in the company.The company eventually recruited Some candidates amongst us grin emotico  I Was one of themThey were looking for people who knew completely about themselves and their values and ethics. So one should prepare accordingly. They asked me situation based question like how will you handle your boss who is arrogant and some other situations.
                            Interview Tips
                            Prepare for CAT for the first round even when you don’t want to appear for it and for GD make sure you are confident and steer the group to conclusion. And finally for the interview just be calm and confident.

                                Interview Tips
                                Presence of mind, decent communication skills, creativity are at most required. It’s a long test, and each section has a separate cutoff. Manage your time well.

                                An interactively moderated GD Session on a general topic (We had ‘’Buy one get one free’’, ‘’I’’ and so on). Two people were chosen by the mod to conclude at the end.
                                Interview Tips
                                Take initiative, and make sense when you speak. Don’t meander on be concise and choose your words wisely. A great way to get noticed in this round is to make NEW points, points which give a new direction to the discussion. Only acting as a moderator may not be the best idea. Bring new points to the table. Don’t be intimidated by others at the table. Don’t be loud and incoherent. Be courteous to the others. Remember that the aim is to contribute to a fruitful discussion, and not to debunk points put forward by the other guys.

                                  Be thorough with your CV, and be ready to defend against doubts raised about what you’ve written. You should have a basic idea about the company - you will be asked questions about the industry in general and Flipkart specifically.

                                    Be honest (atleast seem honest!) and be prepared for general HR questions. Don’t frame your CV in a way that shows that you might be aiming for an MBA (like mentioning a high GMAT score) or an MS/Ph.D (overloading with research projects and the like).

                                      CGPA was an initial cutoff. 7.75+ should be peace. Yes, extra-acads are definitely looked at. Be sure to list out your achievements when you mention a particular position/activity. Aptitude test requires basic CAT skills. No coding skills required for the Management Trainee profile. Decent internships will definitely help your case. You are asked questions on what your work was during the internships and how you achieved goals.
                                      General Tips
                                      Be prepared with some solid research on this growing company (atleast I hope it keeps growing by the time you’re reading this!), and some basic HR questions/puzzles. Know your CV well, and appear confident and relaxed (pretty general funda I know but don’t get stressed). There’s nothing very specific you can do to prepare, so just give it your best shot as yourself. All the best!
