Associate Software Engineer Interview

Associate Software Engineer
Bangalore (India)

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Robert Bosch India in December 2010.

Interview Details – I was hired on campus. Here is a summary of the steps up to being offered the job.
Initially there was a Written Test. There were separate papers for EC and CS students. I took the EC paper. It was moderately difficult, I guess. I don't fully remember now. Anyway after making it through the Written Test, I awaited my first round of interview with a technical guy. He was very impressed with my grade (~85%). So he dint ask me much. He asked me to write a simple C code to swap numbers or something of that level. Then he asked me how I would find the angle between the hands of the clock given that it had only minute and hour hand. And that's it! It lasted about 20minutes max. A few others had longer interviews. Anyway, next round was with the HR. It was chill. She just asked if I was willing to go to Coimbatore. I politely replied that I preferred Bangalore (Duh!!). She laughed and asked me not to worry as she was just kidding (whatever!). Then I thanked her and left. I got the offer. In a year myself and most others who at least 'lived up to expectations' were promoted to Software Engineer positions. And the year after that, I was promoted to Senior Software Engineer. But soon after the promotion, I had to quit due to developments in my personal life. ;)

Overall good experience. I spent more time in cultural activities than at my desk! It was a fun experience for me but a few other colleagues & friends had a tougher time with project deadlines etc. My team was awesome. I can't recall delaying releases just 'coz I hadn't done my work. So, if you finish your work on time and have a decent manager then you can easily maintain a 3+ rating and participate in extra curricular activities.

Negotiation Details – There were no negotiations as such and the rate was fixed for campus hires.

Associate Software Engineer Interview

Associate Software Engineer
Bangalore (India)

I applied in-person and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Robert Bosch India in August 2010.

Interview Details – It Happened to be a Pool Campus drive for me in a College. I got to know about this from one of my friend and got registered ASAP via college in Bangalore directly.

First Day was a written exam ....

It was all Objective (Multiple choice) Questions. The exam was for around two hours & consisted of questions from following topics -->

1. MicroProcessor (Basics, Architecture, Instructions set, Addressing Mode etc.)
2. MicroController (Basics, Architecture, Instructions set, Addressing Mode etc.)
3.Analog & Digital communication
4. C Basics, very basics In fact.
5.Basic Electronics.
6. Aptitude, Logical Reasoning (15% weight age)

Around 3500+ people appeared for the written. Out of which 10%, that is 350 people were shortlisted to move for second round of interview the next day.

Second Day -- A technical discussion...

A typical technical discussion lasts for around 45 min- 70min here. It started with basic introduction & then with Questions on the C. told to write small C program as well, Swapping of variable without sing third variable..something something, i couldn't recall all of them.

Then question from basic electronics on transistors, diode basics & moving towards basics of processor, controllers & embedded systems.

70% time for the technical discussion is reserved for the discussion ( i meant in-depth) on your final year engineering project.

From the technical discussion, it was about 125 people who made it, luckily me too...

Second Day - HR discussion

In Bosch, technical discussion is the deciding factor & 99.9 % you are through & HR is just to check your interest on the joining date & willingness to work & preferred job location. if you agree to these then you can go straight for Party to celebrate your selections. Girls candidates might be asked for a song if their hobby shows so in the Resume.

yes...that's all Done... hope its helpful.. please comment if you really find it :)

Interview Question – Technical discussion about your final year project & Vocational Training...Sometimes you may go deep into your project towards controller or diode or transistors...so be careful when you say you have used some kind of electronic components. You might be asked about your role as team when you had completed that project & what were the responsibilities & how did you accomplish them.

But its no that tough really :)
ALL the Best
