Round 1: The first round comprised of 2 coding questions and a sql query(Test Duration: 1.5 hours):-

  • The two coding questions were easy to medium level.
  • After this Round 37 were Selected and I was one of them.

Round 2: Technical Interview Round 1

First, The Interviewer Begins with the Introduction then Move Directly to the DSA Part with Coding Questions. This is a live coding round conducted through HackerRank. you have to solve three questions in one hour.

There were three Questions-

  1. The first question was similar to this question with slight modification https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/print-pairs-anagrams-given-array-strings/
  2. Given this question but I have to print it in sorted order https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/digits-whose-alphabetic-representations-are-jumbled-in-a-given-string/
  3. The third question was a little difficult that was based on DFS traversal. Initially, I was unable to crack it but figured it out later.

I was able to code the first two questions completely and missed some cases in the third question.

After this round,  14 were selected out of 37 students.

Round 3: Technical Interview Round 2

The interviewer begins with their Introduction and then asks for ours and then moves on to DSA Coding Questions. They asked 3 Questions from me which were –  

  1. https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/find-maximum-path-sum-in-a-binary-tree/
  2. https://leetcode.com/problems/remove-zero-sum-consecutive-nodes-from-linked-list/
  3. https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/kth-smallest-element-in-a-row-wise-and-column-wise-sorted-2d-array-set-1/

I was able to solve all three questions and interview was around one hour.

After this round, they didn’t inform a number of selected students. Only a few got calls for the HR round.

Round 4: HR cum Manager Round 

In this round, First of all, this round is the Manager round, not the HR round. The interviewer gives their Introduction and I suppose to give mine.

The interviewer was very friendly.

  1. They ask some Questions about my Resume.
  2. Then they start Discussing my project and ask some questions like basic SQL queries and a simple puzzle
  3. At Last, he told me if I have some questions to ask?

Finally, 5 students were able to crack the Placement and Got the Offer and Luckily I was one of them.

Tips: 

  • Be confident try to answer questions even by taking the time if you don’t know don’t just jump to conclusion that you can’t solve it.
  • Discuss your approach with the interviewer don’t just jump into writing code.
  • They don’t want Brute Force here so try to give optimized approaches.
  • Practicing coding questions from GEEKSFORGEEKS and LEETCODE helped me a lot.
