Associate Software Engineer
Bangalore (India)

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at EMC in May 2009.

Interview Details – First was written test of technical questions. Then a list of selected students was prepared. Second was technical round, and then whoever cleared this round was called for final HR round. Technical round was for approximate 25mins, with questions on C++ and Java, and basis concepts of computer science knowledge. Not very tough, but neither too easy. Preparation had to be thorough. The HR round was generic, with starting question as tell me about yourself, and whatever was replied as part of this answer was followed up with next question. Then questions about strengths, weaknesses, why do you want to join this company, which other companies have you applied for, what is your preference with respect to company list etc.

Interview Question – I was selected for one more company, and they asked me whether I have been selected for any other. This company was the last one to come to campus, and it would have been normally assumed that students would have already been placed.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No Negotiations. It was campus placement and fixed structure.
