    Interview

    Bad gauging process! I was greatly disappointed by the phone screen interview process. The interviewer seemed to be a junior and have no exposure to understand the purpose of a phone screen or a problem solving interview. Few issues I found: 1. The point of a problem solving interview is to understand the thought process of the candidate rather than reaching a final solution with nitty gritty details. The interviewer hinted me to think silently for a few mins and give the solution. This perplexed me! The entire purpose of the interview was defied here as he gets no insight in to my thought process. He was showing more interest in nitty gritty details of the code than the bigger picture of approach to solve the problem. 2. Interviewer is supposed to look at the candidate's solution and understand it, even if it is any different from the answer he has prepared. He kept confusing me asking for a few things missing in the code . I was confused totally thrice . I corrected him twice and by the third time he had got me confused. The solution I gave was completely valid which I realised only after the call is over and I could think clearly once again with out some one confusing me constantly. I looked up the internet and found another solution and realised the root cause for his questions and confusion. He was hooked on to the approach he had and those suggestions by him were invalid in my approach. The point to remember is there is not always one right solution to the problem. Interviewer should have the ability to frame questions on the fly or think over a new solution presented. It would be great if company/ team reviews its interview process. Sending junior candidates who are not given proper guidance on what is the purpose of the interview can be waste of time for both the parties.

    Very bad interview process,had 5 rounds of discussion in 8 hours back to back. Poor hospitality in the end offering you a salary less then your current,having budget as a excuse.trying to compensate it with the stock which is not even listed. Please validate and do proper screening to avoid such conflict.call for candidates who would fit your budget. it would save everyones time and improve hiring process.

    Interview

    Online Round This was a 2 hour round consisting of 5 mcqs and 2 codes The mcqs were pretty much simple based on DS, DBMS, OS, OOP, C 2 hour written test followed by interviews

    Interview Questions

    • The codes were as follows 1> Given N leaves numbered from 0 to N . A caterpillar at leaf 0, jumps from leaf to leaf in multiples of j(j,2j,3j like this) ,j is specific to the caterpillar,until it reaches the end . On whichever leaf it jumps it eats a little bit . You have to find out how many leaves ,from 1 to N, are left uneaten after k caterpillars have reached the end,each with their own jump factor (j).All the caterpillars begin at leaf 0. example : N=10 k(number of caterpillars)=3 jump factors are 2 ,3,4 then all the leaves eaten by the first caterpillar are (2,4,6,8,10) those eaten by the second one are (3,6,9) those by the 3rd one (4,8) so the uneaten leaves are 1,5,7 output=3 2> Given a number n>0, you have to find the number formed by just inverting the bits of the number . for example: binary of 5 is 101 ,inverting the bits we get 010 =2 so input=5 output=2 PS : merely ~n wouldn’t work :P PI round 1 A brief discussion on my projects and internships.A thorough discussion on whichever languages,frameworks,i had used in my projects. Code 1 Given a binary tree ,you have to invert the tree ,i.e. the parents would become children and the children would become parents for example Given: 1 / \ 2 3 / 4 output: 4 \ 2 3 \ / 1 Code 2 Given a set of numbers ,you have to find the max and the second max in minimum number of comparisons. Apart from the codes there were some questions on OS,process stack, heap memory in Java, Garbage collection,OOP principles and comparison based sorting PI round 2 Code 1 Given a very large number (10^7-10^9) and a small number (5000-10000). I have to calculate the product. It was up to me how i would represent the large number. Code 2 Given a set of integers ,you have to find the largest number possible by rearranging the contents in the array for example : input: {,78,99,101} the largest number possible by rearranging the contents of the array is 9978101 . Discussion on DBMS , what is indexing? ,on which attribute should we have an index for efficient retrieval… what data structures are used for indexing ..advantages of B+ tree When should we not use indexing? some basic questions on SQL PUZZLE Two boys A and B enter a tunnel . At 2/3rd of the tunnel,they see a train coming towards the tunnel ,the train is still at a distance from the tunnel . A runs back to that end of the tunnel from which they entered the tunnel,B runs towards the other end of the tunnel. Both of them just make it without being run over by the train . The train is travelling at a speed of 60kmph. Find the length of the tunnel Hint: We need one more variable to solve this question.But that wont be told at the beginning,. We have to find out which variable that is. PI round 3 (Managerial) Puzzle 1 Given a biased coin,how would you take an unbiased decision .You don’t know whether it is biased towards heads or tails. Puzzle 2 Given a cylindrical glass of water,how would you conclude whether it is more than half filled ,or less than half filled. The glass is not transparent and you do not have any measuring instrument. And you cannot spill out or add anything. Puzzle 3 A man lives on the 12 th floor .

Explain the situation. Puzzle 4 A and B are twin brothers. A is older than B by 5 minutes . A celebrates his birthday each year on 16th march whereas B celebrates his birthday on 15th march . Explain the situation. Apart from this ,he asked questions like ,what are my career goals,what do you look forward to in a boss ,how do you see yourself in 5 years ,etc etc (you all know it :P) HR Round If you have made it this far,it means you are doing pretty great .

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Myntra in February 2015.

    Interview

    Weekend interview : Online test + 2 f2f I don't know why for this position they ask theoretical questions as if candidate is coming straight out of college. Interview process for the said position should be more practical and should ask problems which is being faced in day to day development process. Anyways might be it shows myntra's culture. Suggestion for myntra would be to evolve your interview process and let more experienced people take interviews for senior positions. Ask your 2-3 years experienced people to be more receptive to other solutions and not just stuck to online answers. Be more practical and make interviews more like a discussion than any other bookish exam.
