    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Directi (Bangalore (India)).

    Interview

    I mailed my resume to three HRs, whose email id I had with me. One of the HRs replied to my email within a week and scheduled an online round in the next week.
    I had total 4 rounds:
    1. 1 online coding round in codechef where I had to solve 2 codes. I successfully submitted 1 code and got selected. They announced the results the next day. My next skype interview was scheduled 4 days later according to my convenience.
    2. 2 skype interviews where I had to code in a collabedit.com. In each interview I was asked 2 algorithmic questions.
    3. Finally they asked me to come to their office and give the final technical round. They paid for my expenses. The HR was very helpful regarding the dates and my location preference for the interview. In the interview I was asked questions from my projects, i.e. cryptography, then OS, DBMS, networking, webapp design and basic algorithmic applications. It was a 2-2.30 hrs interview. The interviewer was very helpful and friendly. Then they gave out the final results later in the evening.

    It was a very good interview experience for me and I loved the company. Looking forward to join it.

    P.S. The HR and I contact each other through whatsapp. So I hope that tells the friendliness and openness of the company.

    Interview Questions

    • Given the coordinates [a,b] of a knight in a 8X8 chess board and the number (n) of moves, what is the probability that the knight will go out of the board in n moves. Generalize it in terms of a, b, n.

      The interviews were tough as the questions that were asked in the algorithmic rounds were not mentioned in any usual sites like geekforgeeks, topcoder or careercup. I would tell practice from these sites as the basic concepts are same and if you get stuck anywhere feel free to ask the interviewers. They will always help you out.
       
      Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They emailed me the documents and the package details and told me to reply them with the details required. In case of any trouble I contacted my HR who solved them out.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Directi in December 2014.

    Interview

    I applied on-campus. There were a total of four rounds, all elimination:

    1. Online coding round - Codechef

    Consisted of two questions - one brute-force and one Div-2 C level (a hint was also given for the latter). Second question had many potential WA cases. Did both, but some of the people who did only one were also shortlisted.

    2. Algorithms - F2F

    Two questions - one on trees and the second on DP. Was able to do only the first. Was also asked to write pseudocode and calculate the complexity. A standard question was asked in the last 5 minutes, which I was not able to properly explain due to time constraints. Level - medium-hard

    3. Algorithms - F2F

    Three questions - two standard and one DP (again, Div-2 C level). Was able to do all.

    4. Projects/OS/Misc - Skype

    Topics of discussion were programming languages, compilers, memory concepts (stack, heap etc.), deadlocks and synchronization. One string parsing question in the end.

    My result was announced immediately after my last round. Some of the others' were announced in a couple of hours. There were no behavioral questions or a HR round.

    Interview Questions

    • You can expect a mix of medium-hard problems and some standard questions - or variations of those. All rounds are crucial if it's an elimination format, and the last round will test all non-algorithmic skills you have. F2F interviewers were a patient lot, one was especially informal (in a good way). Overall, a challenging an intense experience.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    A standard package was offered to all selected applicants.
