Planet Spark Interview Experience | On-Campus 2021
Planet Spark visited our campus on August 2021 for a Software Engineer role.
The hiring process was very seamless. It consisted of total of 3 rounds. The first one is Coding Round, the second one is the HR round, and the last round was the Technical interview.
Round-1(Test Duration: 1.5 hours): The first round comprised of around 50 MCQ questions including aptitude, logical, C++ output questions, and 3 coding questions(were very easy) conducted on planet spark’s platform.
- Quantitative aptitude and Logical part were easy.
- Technical questions were tricky but not very difficult.
- The technical questions covered questions from computer science fundamentals, operating systems, data structures (particularly LinkedList, sorting algorithm, tree).
- Solve the questions with a calm mind.
- Don’t stress yourself during the test because you have to do 50 MCQ questions in 60 minutes and 3 coding questions in 30 minutes.
- Don’t spend too much time on any question if you are not able to do it on the first attempt.
Round-2(HR Round): This was something unique thing that I haven’t seen in any company’s interview. You have to answer some basic 6 HR-type questions and then record yourself and then submit your recording to planet spark platform.
Questions were like:
- Why do you become a Software developer?
- What are your motives?
- Why do you want to join planet spark?
- Prepare your answers.
- Take your time and then say it in a very good manner.
Round-3 (Technical Interview – 20 minutes): The interviewer was very polite and helpful. Interviews were conducted on Google meet.
- First he introduced himself and then he asked me to introduce myself.
- He saw my resume and asked me to explain one of the projects that I have mentioned in the resume. I explained my COVID-19 Tracker project and then the follow-up question was what were the technologies that you have used to build this?
- Then he jumps to DSA part and asked the algorithm for bubble sort and its time complexity.
- After that, he asked questions from OOPS. The question was to tell me about the features of OOPS. So I explained polymorphism, encapsulation, and all features of OOPS.
- The last question was from DBMS. He asked me to write a simple SQL query that was based on the concept of joining.
- And at last, he asked do you have any questions from me?
Results came out after 3 days and I was selected.
- Keep practicing coding questions from GeeksforGeeks platform or any platform that you liked.
- Also Focus on CS fundamentals subjects like OOPS, DBMS and DSA.
