    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Headstrong in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    There will be 2 technical rounds and 1 managerial round
    The technical rounds are generally lengthy and they can ask questions from
    anything to everything on your technology.
    It is good if you control the flow of your interview
    else you can expect the interview getting tough very soon.
    Expectations are good from the interviewers, they really test basics. Also some advance concepts if you have worked on them in your earlier projects.

    Interview Questions
    • They may ask questions that may be pretty abstract.
      Please do not get bogged down.
      Its a test of your character.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Headstrong in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    Got call from HR of the Bangalore campus,they scheduled a telephonic interview for some days and then again they rescheduled due to unavailability of panel. On the day of the scheduled telephonic interview HR called me and told that panel is not ready to take telephonic interview and hence they want to have direct face to face interview and so i told them to schedule and decided on particular date. I went there as per time and then first i had written exam,after that 2 technical rounds followed by Manager and HR round.
    In technical interview there were some basic questions and few of them conceptual. Second technical was little more conceptual and manager round was just a formality about joining date and my past work experience. HR round was just salary discussion.

    There will a telephonic technical interview, or it could be FtoF as well. They would ask most of the core java concepts only but in detail.
    If through with first round, second would be another technical around with some senior technical architect.
    He would again cover some core java concept along with Advance java and the technologies mentioned in your profile.
    if through, then there would be a Managerial round followed with HR discussion.
