    Interview Questions
    • You are given 8 identical-looking balls, one of which is heavier than the other 7 (all of which weigh the same). Using an old-fashioned mechanical set of scales you must identify the heavier ball using the scale as few times as possible. The scale is constructed using two bowls and an arm enabling the bowls to either balance or have one bowl rising while the other (and heavier bowl) falling. You can't just add one ball at a time thinking its one weighing, however, you may put any number of balls in each bowl.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Patni Computer Systems in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    The Interview that I faced was challenging and it was an HR cum technical interview. They ask you questions mostly based on your final year project and since my branch was Electronics and telecomm., I was questioned on some subjects like microprocessors and microcontrollers. An unexpected question that I faced was, 'How would you implement your final yr project in a business model?' which stumped me but I managed to give him a satisfactory answer. And I was finally selected by them. They took 121 candidates from 2700 people.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Patni Computer Systems in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had a Phone and 1-1 interview. Phone interview was basically about skills used in my project and basic technical questions about the technologies mentioned in my resume. If you are good with ur basics, u wil be able to clear the phone screen. 1-1 is simpler than phone. it was interview with the clients. Basically abt the projects and nothing in detail abt technology. This is again for this particular client position I was interviwed for. It might vary for other client positions. Not sure.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked questions related to technology that was mentioned in my resume but not required for tht position. that was surprising.   Answer Question

    Mainframe Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pune (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pune (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Patni Computer Systems in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    It basically depends on the interviewer who interviews you and the urgecy of the position, for which you are being interviewed and also your previous employer.
    The guy who questioned me was pretty cool and the interview also was carried on very smoothly, with out many in-depth questions. I felt like, there was huge and urgent requirement with the project, which this interview is meant for. He asked some basics and my first Technical Round was completed within 15 minutes. And i was pretty confident that, i will be selected for the next round, with the way i answered him.

    Then i had to wait 4 long hours for my next round. That was the PM round and he again talked about my stuff, previous project and to my surprise he started negotiating my salary, which i quoted in the form and he finalised it to 5 lakhs, my current salary being 3.8 (working with TechMahindra with an exp of 3 yrs).

    I thought I will have another round of HR interview, where i thought of discussing about my package.
    But they have sent me the offer directly without HR interview the next day.
