Senior Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baldwin Park, CA

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Patni Computer Systems (Baldwin Park, CA) in January 2008.

Interview

I sent them an email thro a job website. Interestingly, they responded within a day or 2. The interview was setup in the next 2 days giving me very less time to prepare. However, with my past experience I was able to knock their socks off. The interview was fairly technical since it was with a Technology expert. Of course I was not able to answer some questions. But they understood that my skills were slightly differnet. I was able to answer everything from that side. I also had an interview with their client where they wre to place me. It all went well.

Interview Questions

  • While unit testing your software, if you see the error - 'there is no line at position 0', how would you proceed?   Answer Question

Negotiation

Stick to your numbers if you think you've done a good job with the test. Remember they're an Indian IT company. So you can't ask for too much either. with 5 years of experience about 70k and 2 k with every year thereafter is what I would expect Make sure you confirm that they will pay for relocation, temporary accomodation and travel expenses - WITH NO CONTRACT TO BE SIGNED.

    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.   1 Answer
