Senior Software Engineer Interview

Senior Software Engineer
Bangalore (India)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Informatica in May 2013.

Interview Details – It started with two written tests for screening followed by a series of F2F interviews. Writtend tests mostly focused on Datastructures and Core Java (Esp Concurrency), bitwise operators, inheretance and some O.S. concepts like deadlocks,paging etc.

In F2F interviews discussions happened on popular algorithmic questions like Max Subarray problem, No. of BST's from Sorted Array and java questions related to inheritance,concurrency (esp volatile keyword) and type casting.

Second F2F round was problem solving round where they see how you approach an unseen problem. They help and give hints along the way. Questions from resume are also asked.

But overall experience of interview was made bitter by lame H.R. No response from him after numerous emails and phone calls. He says neither yes nor No which i thought was unprofessional .

Interview Question – There were some questions related to Java Class loaders which i was not familier with.   Answer Question
