This is my interview experience for Editorialist YX. They visited our campus for the 2022-batch session placements. The whole interview process was done virtually.

Round 1 (Online Test): It’s an online coding and MCQ round with 40 aptitude questions, 20 technical questions, and four coding questions. The duration of this round was 2:00 hrs.

The coding questions are:

Out of 94 students, only 15 students were selected for the second round (I was one of them).

Round 2(Technical): It was a technical interview. Two interviewers were taking the interview.

  • It started with the first question, which was based on a string; I wrote its pseudocode and explained it, I was unable to find its optimized approach but was able to give the solution using recursion.
  • The second question was of finding the missing and repeating element in array https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/find-a-repeating-and-a-missing-number/

  • Then they asked me to prove the Pythagoras theorem, I was able to solve it with the help of basic trigonometry, then they said me to prove it with the help of the similarity of triangles, It took me 2 minutes to figure out, and then I was able to prove.

This round had gone for 35-40 minutes, and out of 5, 4 were able to make their way for the HR round (Fortunately, I was one of them).

Round 5(HR Round): I had a great talk with HR for about 45-50 minutes.
