Interview Process
Resume Shortlist HR Interview
Round 1

Resume Shortlist

Interview Experience
Shortlist procedure:
Shortlist was based on resume and a HR essay about Sony.
Sony cares only about your extra tech activities (Tech stuff that you do on your own and not as part of some Course..). It doesn't care even about your CGPA.
My resume was plain and simple with only one highlighted E2A Hackathon project and about my CORE internship in NARL, Tirupathi
As my resume doesn't have much of projects (which Sony looks for) I tried to write my essay as good as possible
Till my interview ending I thought that was the reason why I got shortlisted out of 100 people that applied for Sony but Japanese HR told at the end of interview that he didn't like the essay at all :-(
Interview Tips
Highlight your Projects but not all of them, only the important ones.
I did quite a few other projects but I only highlighted this project.
I tried to write my resume in such a way that it makes the interviewer feel that I am dedicated to one particular thing at a time and after gaining sufficient knowledge, experience form that I moved onto another project.
Also they look for what do you do in your free time as in did you learn any programming languages in your free time...
Round 2

HR Interview

Interview Experience
For me Technical and HR interview happened simultaneously.
Any interview can never get more easier than that.
None of the shortlisted candidates felt any kind of pressure, tension or discomfort during the interview.
My interview was as if I was talking to my friends. They were so kind down to earth and polite.
Some questions asked were:
1)Tell me about yourself? I didn't say anything wantedly (I don't like this question at all)
2)About Sony and Sony products used by me
3)Explain all the technical work done by you
4)anything that you know about the profile/work (about how Bluetooth headphones work... in my case)
5)parents opinion on Japanese intern
Interview Tips
There was one more guy who is much ahead of me all the above mentioned projects... but maybe the reason why they selected me is because I was confident and didn't have any other second thoughts than cracking the interview .
One of my friend still had confusion whether to do research intern or Core intern.

Skill Tips
Do we have the zeal to work and do something productive, really good product on you own without someone always pushing you to do it.<br /> They test this in different ways. Except the HR questions about JAPAN none of us had same questions, one had questions about courses she did. One guy had a lot of CFI projects (I had none) but they didn't ask him to explain about his projects. All questions seemed so random for us. <br /> With all these random questions they somehow correlated to find their best match. One thing which I can say is those interviewers are highly qualified and their selection process is not random
Motivation for applying
SONY name needs no introduction.

I was interviewed on-campus at JNEC Aurangabad for Developer role at Tech Mahindra
Interview Process
Test Problem Statement Technical Interview HR Interview
Round 1

Test

Duration
180 min Minutes
No. of Questions
130 questions
Test Sections
  • Section 1: Verbal ability
  • Section 2: Logical Reasoning
  • Section 3: Quantitative aptitude
Interview Experience
The test started with the verbal ability - reading and comprehension. Especially for Tech M you will have to improve your verbal skills as they strongly emphasize on them.
Logical reasoning section is a little bit easy or you can say that as for me I found it rather easy to handle. Mainly questions were on data interpretation and cubes and relations and ages.
Moving on to the third and last section that comprises of quant is simple. Most of the questions were direct and had 2-3 line solutions. Just improve your basic fundamentals.
Interview Tips
Refer India bix and at least start reading something to improve your vocabulary. Even practicing each section from this site is quite enough.
Round 2

Problem Statement

Interview Experience
The window given was of only 10 minutes and I was hardly able to write 10-12 lines.
Interview Tips
Guys main aim is to check your sentence making ability and how well you have understood the topic. Whatever you write make sure its well read, grammatically correct and in context with the topic given.
Round 3

Technical Interview

Interview Experience
Technical interview was a little bit tough. Mainly, the interviewer asked me to explain my project and questions on my field of interest.
Interview Tips
Whatever programming language you know, be ready to at least explain the logic for basic questions asked about that language. Don't try to go round and round over the topic. Just be clear and to the point
Round 4

HR Interview

Interview Experience
My HR round lasted a mere 3 minutes
Interview Tips
Just don't tremble in front of him and try to answer in a positive way.
Skills

Skills Tested

Skill Tips
Know the fundamentals.<br /> Master one programming language, its syntax and logic.
General Tips
Be confident in giving your answers.

Also, it is important to crack the Aptitude at the first place or you wont get a chance to showcase your technical knowledge, no matter how strong are you.

So do not ignore that part. Know what company gives importance to what section (as TechM gives for verbal).

Practice with whatever material you get.

    Interview Experience
    I solved 1 problem in C and remaining problems in Java. I used OOPS in better way so it got me additional points.

    Questions 1: Use best data structure to store numbers which are given at any point in time. You need to find out the median for those numbers.

    Use any language for solving problem but they prefer. If you solve the problem in C then you may get good comments.
    Logic, Coding Style, Memory Management are important.
    If you don’t have time to solve the problem, just explain the logic.
    Round 3

    Problem Statement

    Interview Experience
    I created HashMap using Java. But others used BST(but most optimized data structure is B-tree or B+ tree). I explained HashMap, B+ tree and my logic for spell check and suggestion and I analyzed the question and asked many questions and suggestions for optimizing the solution. They were impressed.

          Skill Tips
          Prepare from glassdoor, indiabix and any book/ source of objective questions on C/C++ and OS/DBMS/DSA. Practice coding from competitive websites like codechef to get adjusted to that coding style. Unnecessary problems can otherwise arise which will be a headache during limited time in the test.
          General Tips
          Be very confident and positive spirited. Be very well dressed and groomed. Be very sure of what you want out of your career since HR questions are highly varied from one candidate to next and honest answers can only get you selected. Leave out further studies from the discussion obviously.
