    Technical Support Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Informatica in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by a recruiter. Guided me through the interview process. Generally for an entry level position, you expect to have 2 phone interviews followed by an onsite call. I had to go through about 4 interviews before going onsite.
    They got me onsite and had a standard 6 round interview. Starting with 3-4 technical rounds with the team members and the last few with the Director and VP of the department.
    Interviewers were pretty cool and worked around my strengths and matched them to the requirements of the position.
    Entire process took about 6 weeks starting from the recruiters call to the final onsite. Shouldn't have taken this long but the delay was partially because of a tight schedule at my end and unavailability of interviewers due to their busy calenders.
    The trip was all paid for. Including all airport transfers, accommodation, meals (no cap on how much you can spend).

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were based on my strengths which was Java. But it tested your overall skills and knowledge of all the basic technologies. Included questions and problems on Java, OS details, Networking, Servers, Databases, RDBMS Theory, Designing, Troubleshooting, Case Studies and possibly everything you can think of. The interviews also got a bit of background on my projects and courses.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details

    I told them that i cant remember theoretic concepts and networks, so they they asked only practical aspects n designing concepts, dint ask any network questions.
    2nd interviewer asked questions on C, data structures, algorithms and OS..., he thot me some new concepts that i dint know.
    3rd interviewer made me solve around 20 puzzles, mathematical and logical.., after that he asked me to write 30 unix commands which excluded 20 other commands already written by some one else.., i added only 10 here..
    the 4th technical interview was taken after HR interview. he asked a few personal questions, then jumped to os concepts and dbms concepts. then he asked details of my project and internship. at the end, he advised me to learn a few concepts like inode, codd's law etc..
    HR interview was normal, he asked all the usual questions like introduce yourself, why join informatica, wat u kno abt informatica, why to hire you, will you relocate abroad?, what did you want, if not an engineer, why dint you be so, etc...
