    Interview

    The interview process took 2 days. Day 1: Aptitude test- Featured multiple choice questions from various domains like data structures, networks, database, maths etc. Mostly, the questions were related to the engineering syllabus. Coding test- In a language of our choice, we were supposed to write the code in a text editor. without compiling the code. I was asked to write a code which would read a C program and delete all the comments in the original code. For the ones who cleared both these rounds, Day 2: Personal interview- After introductions, I was asked some basic questions about my final year project. After that, I was given a paper and was asked to write code for simple problems. The interviewer then progressively made changes to the problem statement making it more complex. After that, I was asked some basic questions about databases and was asked to write a couple of sql statements. After clearing the personal interview, HR interview- Since this was a college recruiting process, there were no salary negotiations. The HR interview was similar to an informal conversation which didn't last more than 10 minutes.

    Interview Questions

    • What are the ACID properties in database? This was unexpected as the interviewer asked me this while I was in the middle of writing a C code for a problem he had given. The question isn't difficult at all, but it did surprise me.   Answer Question
