    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at KLA-Tencor in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    Kla tencor came for our campus placement . It offered us a package of Rs. 700000-800000 .
    Interview consisted of :-

    1) Written Test (75 minutes )

       23 Objective Technical Questions from C++, C, OS, Data Structure.(Basically Output Prediction)
        2 Programming Questions
       10 Aptitude Questions

    2) Technical Round (30 minutes)
        Discussion on difficult questions of Written Test.

    3) Programming Round (60 minutes)

    4) HR Round (60 minutes)

           Written test consisted of questions which were outside B.Tech scope . The expectation of interviewers is unnecessarily too high as KLA Tencor has bad training facility .
          Some of the interview questions are size of virtual destructor, constructor , 4 byte pairing , virtual mapping in functions etc, Memory allocation , deallocation of objects and variables, recognition of error type (Stack Overflow, Linker Error, Compile Time error) etc.
           Some of the cons for this company are :- 14 working hours/day , less increment in salary, worst interview process and unfair selection .

    Interview Questions
    • Size of Virtual destructor, Constructor etc .   Answer Question
    • Identify error type whether stack overflow, linker error , compile time error or no error for constructor etc.   Answer Question
