    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Novell in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    1. Written

    Written questions includes 5 sections i. Aptitude ii. OS&Networks iii. Data Structure iv. Java v. C&C++

    But while verifying they skip Aptitude part. So you have to score good in technical sections

    2. F2F(2 rounds)

    - First round was a 1 hr Java F2F. The interviewer asked almost everything from Java. So nothing to mention here. Almost every thing he asked me.

    - Second F2F was more brain storming. The interviewer asked many data structure(basic of linked list, tree etc) questions, OS questions like thread, process. Some good java design related questions.

    Mind it Whatever position it is, Novell interview gives more emphasis on data structure and algorithms.

    Interview Questions
    • 1. You have some classes like A, B, C . Which all classes can class D extend ?

      2. Produce Consumer problem using concurrency ?

      3. A lot of questions "static" in java.

      4. Reverse of singly linked list. BST.

      5. Stack implementation

      6. Deadlock, process & thread

      7. Create your own immutable object

      8. How HashMap works.

      9. Serialization specially how Externalizable works.

      10. How to synchronize static class objects.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Novell in April 2008.

    Interview Details

    It consisted of a written test, a technical round, a Managerial round and then a HR round. Written and technical round were based on testing basics and scenario based testing,debugging or test case writing. Fairly simple. Managerial round had discussions on career goals, projects done etc. HR round was just goals and compensation.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing specific. It was simple. But it purely depends on your interviewer. I have heard people handling tough questions on coding,algorithms for a post of automation test engineer.   View Answer
