I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at NIIT Technologies in January 2008.

Interview Details – Well it is a all day long process . We went in the morning around 10 am . There were around 200 peple (it was NOT a walkin). First round they conduct for any post is the basic IQ test - it comprises of 30 questions, very easy ones thogh(10th standard). That is when they do a lot of chucking out. Post that is a technical round, which is one on one with a technology expert. they grill you in this one. ask to write programs and output of programs. They also ask concepts and basics. Post that there is a round with a Project lead or SPM, which is very comfortable. After all this is the HR round

Interview Question – Write a simple C++ programe   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Well I thought that they will give the compensation according to the market standards on their own, but this does not happen. You have to use your negotiation skills at your best. They give age old excuses like there is recession in market, we will very soon send you onsite (never happens). Good luck

Senior Software Engineer Interview

Senior Software Engineer
Delhi (India)

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at NIIT Technologies in May 2010.

Interview Details – I got a chance to undergo selection process at NIIT Technologies, Kalkaji a few months back. Though i was initially excited, it turned out to be a disappointing affair.

First, they conducted interviews on weekdays, which means working professionals like us had to take a day.

The interview process consisted of 2.5 hrs of written which included an aptitude and a technical test (Java in my case). The tests tested your problem solving, observation skills and your concepts.

After the test, there was a technical interview in which i was grilled on questions from areas of Struts and Collections. The interview went find and i was recommended for the next round, which was supposed to take place on another day, as it was already closing time.

However i dint get any call from them. After a few days when i enquired i was told that my salary expecations were too high.

I had cleared to them my expectations when i had applied for the job itself. After wasting a day of mine they realise that my expectations cudnt be met.

I would expect a professional organisation like NIIT Tech to be much more appreciative of that fact that people have other important things to do than go around wasting time giving interviews.

Interview Question – How is data integrity protected in a multithreading , multi processor environment?   Answer Question
