    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Gurgaon, Haryana (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Guavus in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    A series of technical rounds, 4-5 rounds (depends) followed by an HR round. 1 telephonic round initially to filter the candidates. Rest are face to face rounds. The interviewers were friendly and open to answering your doubts clearly. They were more happy to go in-depth on a few problems instead of too many questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing unexpected but you should be prepared for data structures and algorithms stuff, comfortable with complexity and ideas to improve them.   Answer Question

    Was hired as Software Engineer by a new VP

    Interview Questions
    • All rounds were good and technical and interviewers looked intelligent except VP round ( VP asked, where do you live, family, some annoying family related questions and started conversation in Hindi in a way such that he had made up his mind not to ask a single logical question. Worst interviewer ever I faced. Not enough attequates )   View Answer

    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Gurgaon, Haryana (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a day - interviewed at Guavus in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had 3 technical rounds focussed on Java, DS and algo.
    Questions on tries, cloning link list, bloom filter, thread safe hash map, suffix tree. Some questions on OS involving paging and threading.
    First interviewer had good understanding of programming & OS concept.
    Second interviewer was asking geeksforgeeks questions and was expecting the same answer as on the website. I had a very hard time explaining him my solutions . He could barely understand my projects. Interview went on for one hour and he asked only one question. He could not understand a very simple algorithm that I had used in my solution even though I had even written code for that. Although at a tech lead position he was having difficulty understanding if else conditions.
    Other interviewers were interested mainly in knowing about family background, parents and siblings occupation and not much technical.
    Their office building is pretty bad as compared to other software companies.

    Senior Linux Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Gurgaon, Haryana (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Guavus in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had a very bad experience with interview process at Guavus
    - HR were not aware of the actual job profile. They called me up for some position which was not matching with my profile. Later they called me up again for another position. Infact they asked me to inquire about the position/profile with the management during interview process.
    - HR were not in sync with Management. They asked me for the interview feedback (like how much time it took, what questions were asked).
    - HR didn't even bother to provide the final result of interviews even after repeated calls. I had to call the respective manager, who took my interview, to get to know the final decision.
    - All interviews could have been done in 1 or 2 days. But yhey stretched interviews over more than 10 days, and that too only when I approached them.

    Data Mining Team Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Gurgaon, Haryana (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Guavus.

    Interview Details

    I was approached by the recruitment team @guavus giving me the initial details of the role. Then the discussion proceeded to a telephonic conversation which was more like of getting to know my profile, just basic questions. After the positive feedback , i had 4 F2F interview which were very technically grilling. Overall, if you have worked in the domain guavus is hiring for, the interview wont be an issue.

    Interview Questions
    • Few of the programming question/puzzles were tricky. Most of the question originated from the work i did for previous company, so they were easy to handle   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation experience was positive but again, my demand was also keeping in mind industry standard

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a day - interviewed at Guavus in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    Good:
    Impresed with pre interview discussions & interviwers in 2 inital rounds. It was a mix of technical & managerial questions. HR indicated that 3 round is required and will be done soon.

    Bad:
    Never heard back from HR after that. No answer to phone call or email reply. I am disapointed to see this unproessional behaviour. I do assume that postion is closed or filled by someone else. But, HR must inform candidate about the closure of his/her process (+ve or -ve).
