    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at S&P Capital IQ (New York, NY) in February 2010.

    Interview

    30 mins paper test (all about algorithms design) before the 1:1 interview. And the 1:1 interview is mostly about the test you just took. Also, it related some of your experience. Make sure you got all the details on your resume and be able to explain fluently. No behavioural question was asked. Technical questions included topics: data structure( array, linked list, hash table, etc), algorithm (many many), DB design (normalization or multi-relationship), pick a language you like and write a short program they gave you.

    Interview Questions

    • algorithm to reverse a singly linkedlist. (most efficient way)   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at S&P Capital IQ (Mumbai (India)) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through campus placements. There were supposed to be 5 rounds. First Aptitude then Technical Aptitude and then 3 interviews. But in my case there was only one interview. The whole process got over in an hour. The first aptitude had a few questions on quantitative aptitude and logical reasoning; a section on programming related MCQs and another on database related questions. It seems quite difficult but surprisingly got through. The second test had 2 sections One programming related where we could answer using logic/pseudo code/actual code/algorithm and another with database queries. Even this was difficult. Infact the Interview was pretty chilled out. General Questions based on Linked lists, queries, indexers, trees,etc. they were more interested in the approach rather than actual knowledge. In all a pretty good experience
