    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Montreal, QC (Canada)).

    Interview

    I applied online and got 1st round call interview from the US based HR, then a tele-interview with the hiring manager and was been asked to finish mini project prior next step. Once submitted the project moved to onsite interview and people asked all kinds of database related questions mostly related to the project you have done, during the interview I chose to speak English instead (seems some staffs who work there cannot master English, talking with very strong funny accents). Due to the French dominant environment no offers !

    There was an initial screening test, where they asked for aptitude and technical questions, all were multiple choice. First round of interview, there were questions on C and compilers and operating systems. Then a programming question on linked list. Second round, there was a question on data encoding. It was an open question, and very interesting. After that a simple HR round.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at EMC (Bangalore (India)) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Very well organised. I had to hardly wait for 15 mins after reaching the campus. Both the interviewers were very respectful and also the HR gave timely decisions. The interviewers' attitude was to select and not to reject people and hence they gave me slight directions and increased the level of difficulty. They asked to write code and improve complexity. All in all a very good experience..

    Interview Questions

    • Basics of data structures and algortithms, basics of c,c++,java Lots of questions on college project..was asked to write lots of code   Answer Question

Was asked some C snippets and puzzles. The 2nd tech round was complete C programming based. Asked about structures, unions, how to detect a palindrome etc. Anyone with fair understanding of basics would clear them.
