    It was an on campus interview. First round was written round with some basic programming stuff, aptitude and verbal reasoning. Was pretty easy. The next 2 rounds were technical. 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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at EMC (Bangalore (India)) in May 2009.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No Negotiations. It was campus placement and fixed structure.
