    Test Sections
    • Section 1: Aptitude
    • Section 2: Logical Reasoning
    • Section 3: English
    • Section 4: Technical
    Interview Experience
    According to me the time given was little less than time required to solve these many questions. Questions were simple, speed was important. I had attempted Technical and LR sections properly and could attempt few questions of English, because of time constraint. You should maintain speed from beginning only. They say there is no negative marking, but they check accuracy, which means number of correct answers to total number of attempted questions, so even if negative marking is not there, do not mark randomly.
    According to me, Since I attempted technical portion properly, I got interview call Server technology and because of LR portion I got interview call for Global Customer Support(GCS). I could not clear interview for server tech, but I could clear interviews for GCS
    Interview Tips
    Maintain speed from beginning,
    Round 2

    Puzzle Interview

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: Some puzzle from google, I don't remember what it was
    Interview Experience
    They will just see your approach, not the answer. I was asked one puzzle and was told to come after an hour, with the proper answer.
    You will have all the sources to find out results, but the thing is they will consider the answer that is framed by you.
    They will just check approach. I had given wrong answer but they liked my approach, so I was selected. They called me 3 times, each time giving some different puzzle. Just think on your own, don't give them google answers.
    Interview Tips
    Be confident while answering questions and have some basic knowledge of Customer Support.

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: Compilation related

    Round 1

    Test

    Duration
    60 Minutes
    No. of Questions
    50 questions
    Test Sections
    • Section 1: Basic Written Test
    Interview Experience
    This first round of written test was conducted to gauge the basic knowledge and proficiency of the English Language. The test comprised of  some objective sections that needed the candidates to correct grammatically incorrect sentences, list the correct order of steps, etc.
    It also included a few subjective essay-type questions to depict the candidates flow of writing.
    Interview Tips
    As much as we think we know English very well, it's always better to keep learning more! Even if that includes checking spellings and pronunciations of words that we thought we knew correctly all along.
    Round 2

    Test

    Duration
    75 Minutes
    No. of Questions
    30 questions
    Test Sections
    • Section 1: Techincal Written Test
    Interview Experience
    This was a more thorough test to test the technical acumen of  the candidates. It had specific concept and task related questions.
    Interview Tips
    It's important to go through the job description and do your research about what the daily responsibilities may look like. Working on how you'll perform these tasks is equally important!
    Round 3

    Technical Interview

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: Tell me about the OS your phone uses? What are the other phone operating systems available in the market.
    • Question 2: Describe in steps how you downloaded any software recently.
    • Question 3: What do you know about Databases? Especially the Oracle Database.
    • Question 4: What knowledge to you have about PL/SQL?
    Interview Experience
    Having had absolutely no technical background at all, this was the toughest round for me. I knew the answers to some questions and didn't know the answers to most! I was honest about the fact that I didn't know certain answers and didn't try to come up with answers that I thought would be correct. That seemed to have worked for me as the interviewer appreciated the honesty.
    Interview Tips
    Textbook answers are cliched! Be real, be honest and admit if you don't know something rather than pretending that you do.
    Round 4

    Behavioural Interview

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: What if you and a teammate propose two different ideas for a project and only one can get chosen? What would your approach be like?
    • Question 2: If you know two team members don't get along with each other and they both come and speak to you about the other person, how would you handle both these colleagues?
    Interview Experience
    This round was an interesting experience because no matter how prepared you go for an interview, you never know what hypothetical situation you may end up in. It helps you understand yourself better, too!
    Interview Tips
    Ask a few friends to conduct a mock interview for you before your actual interview. Different people bring in different perspectives so they'll ask you different kinds of questions to help prepare you for this round.
    Round 5

    Other Interview

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: Who's your favourite teacher in college and why?
    • Question 2: What are your other interests?
    • Question 3: What kind of books do you like reading?
    Interview Experience
    This round of interview was with the managers. It was a fun round because they kept it extremely informal and fun. They wanted to observe the kind of team player I'd make and it also helped me establish a comfortable rapport with them.
    Interview Tips
    Always aim at all-round development. A corporate office environment goes way beyond just your work. Your sincerity, integrity, adaptability, and accommodating levels matter, too.
    Skills

    Skills Tested

    • Writing skills
    • Oratory skills
    • Learning/Graping skills
    • Technical acumen
    General Tips
    I can't stress enough on how important it is to be yourself during an interview. It'll also make you less stressed about the whole experience. Put in effort to prepare with all your data and facts, but also try and make the interview as interesting as you can for the interviewers. You have to show how and why you're different from the many other candidates that they're going to meet.
    Motivation for applying
    Great brand value for a fresher and a relatively upcoming job profile.

                      Interview Round 3 : 6 were selected for this round. I was asked 3 questions. One based on OS synchronisation concept, one on DSA, and another on logic gates (I know, its out of the ordinary).

                      This is for the software junta. First of all, if you are from CS/IT, there are a plethora of companies coming in the first month itself. So, it is important to be prepared beforehand. Make good use of your summer. I cannot overstate the importance of DSA in placements. Please go through Karumanchi and/or geeksforgeeks. Both of them are equally good. At the same time, brush up the other fundamentals : DB, OS, Networks.

                      Preparation materials

                      Books
                      • Head first Java,
                      • DSA made easy : Narasimha Karumanchi,
                      General Tips
                      To even have a sniff at getting placed, clearing the first round is mandatory. I have seen many deserving people falter in the first round. So, please don't overlook this. Let Us C and Test your C Skills by Yeshwant Kanetkar are the best for this purpose. Many companies lift questions straight off these books.

                      Do NOT ignore general aptitude. We all think we are good at it, until we realise there are many others who are better. So, practice from aptitude books, online resources.Again, please make good use of your summer. Otherwise, you'll be playing catch up for the first few weeks, like me.

                      Placements are probably the most challenging experience for most of us in college. If you've got a PPO, nothing like it.

                      It will be very exhausting. You may feel like giving up. Endless PPTs, interviews etc. But, never lose your determination and you will be rewarded for your hard work.

                      And the joy after getting placed.

                      Test Sections
                      • Section 1: finding output/errors in a given code segment
                      Interview Tips
                      You should be familiar with OOP concepts and a few concepts like binary tree. Also aptitude and quant questions (like in CAT). They will test your coding skills thoroughly during the test (only in the prog. language that you opted) and will question your logic and your approach to the problem. Be thorough with your coding basics.
                      Round 2

                      Interview Questions
                        Interview Tips
                        The tech rounds focused mostly on coding. You can choose any programming language that you are comfortable with. They are not insistent that you know Java. I chose C++. The interviewers mainly look at how you approach the questions (the way you solve the question - if its the most efficient/fastest solution to the problem). They will also ask quite a lot of puzzles (the ones you can prepare from Heard on the street, 400 puzzles etc.) and a few CAT quant qns.

                          basic qns that you will prepare for any company. Be sure to attend the PPT; the HR will surely ask you a few qns from it. Also know a bit about the company and the profile you are sitting for.

                            General Tips
                            The test is the only criteria for getting shortlisted to the interview round. There are certain Oracle profiles that are only open for CS and one which has a CG cutoff of 8.5. But for the App Dev profile there was no CG cutoff. your performance in the test is most important,because they generally do not entertain walkins during interview. Resume is not that important. Only HR team will have a look at it. If you have any coding experience (from any projects) or Java certification then its an added bonus. But its not mandatory.

                            1st year- concentrate on CGPA

                            2nd year - find out what you want(core or noncore). Do internships in starts ups or finance or consult companies if aiming for non-core. PORs are important

                            3rd year- internships.

                            4th year- start placement preparation very early. 

                            Work well on your project if you want to go for core.

                              I was asked to explain him my internship project in great detail and above all one should be prepared to answer the question 'Why IT?' if from a non IT background. Then I was asked to program a logic for 'Search and replace" tool of MS Word.

                                Was asked about my background in detail and stressed again and again on 'Why IT?'. Then he asked me to prepare a summary on the merits and demerits of various Employee Data Management techniques for an organisation. For the end of the interview you should have a question which you would ask to the interviewer.
                                General Tips
                                Don't try to over emphasize the correctness of your logic if the interviewer finds a glitch. It irritates him. Be interactive in your HR round. In our case it was the VP of Oracle India who took the final round. So I asked him about his experience in the company. He was very happy to share it with me. But asses your interviewer before you put forth these queries cause your interviewer might not be as jolly as mine was.

                                          If u cleared written test then chances for clearing interview is very high. In our time they shortlisted 14 candidates for interview and finally selected 10 students but 7 students from B.Tech rejected EPIC offer. So, finally only 3 students from M.Tech got placed

                                          in EPIC.

                                          My suggestion for you is that there is VISA problem with EPIC because office is only i n USA. So, if placed in EPIC, try for other companies off-campus. Chances for getting VISA is very less.
