Software Engineer QA Interview

Software Engineer QA
San Francisco, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Informatica in July 2012.

Interview Details – There were three interviews over all. First two were phone interviews and the third onsite interview. The phone interviews lasted for 40-50 mins each. Purely technical. They asked questions based on Java and database queries.
The onsite interview lasted for 5 hours including lunch with the manager. Was interviewed by each member of the team. The questions were based on data structures and algorithms only.

Interview Question – the unexpected question was to implement a practical scenario of semaphore using java threads. Had to use wait, notify and all the methods in the Thread class.   Answer Question

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Informatica in November 2011.

Interview Details – First they asked us to write a Written Test which consist of two parts : MCQ and subjective. MCQ paper had RDBMS, UNIX, C, aptitute questions.
After one week they informed me that i have cleared test and have to come for F2F interview.

First Round : They asked me some puzzles, basic question on java, design patterns and write few codes.It was easy. Cleared first round.
After first round they kept me waited for around 45 mins(No coordination between HR and Interviewer).
Second Round : Asked me about mutlithreading code, some data structure implementation in java, other java questions- around 50-60 mins. He asked me to meet HR.

HR told me that 2 rounds are completed and you will be called for next round early next week.
They didn't call me after that when i followed up with them after some time HR told that he didn't get interview feedback yet.
Very unprofessional behavior of their at least they should have inform candidates irrespective of whether he/she selected or not.
