    Interview

    This is for india location. the company has a very different way of recruiting. At first there is an 30 min question paper. They asked me about composition/ aggregation differences. Enums. how to create enums.. They asked me about searching strategy, write code and dry run- binary search. The VP asked me about creating an architecture . The QA engineer - was nosey.. he was quizzing people on the man in the middle attack. He was speaking in Hindi- That is odd for a company of international repute!

    Application

    The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Rovi in January 2011.

    Interview

    Simple and straightforward meeting with HR rep and then the organization's VP. Not rushed and very thorough. Went through the background and resume and asked the typical open-ended questions. Ended up in a great conversation between colleagues and promoted a lot of thinking on all sides: HR, Legal and myself. Although I didn't get the offer, it was for the right reasons. Thought enough of both the people and the company that I bought a small block of stock. Good luck to them. I hope they do well.
