Lead Engineer In Test Interview

Lead Engineer In Test

I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at Snapdeal.

Interview Details – There is no process at all.
1. The HR first called me on a weekend at 2 p.m. and asked to be on time so that they will complete the process in 1 day. They made me wait till 3 p.m. clock and then after 2 interviews, they asked me to come again on some weekday.
2. This time, I requested that I will come after 6 p.m. but HR said I should be there by 4:30 p.m. or else it won't be done in 1 day itself. But once again, nothing happened till 5:30 p.m. I kept waiting in a conf room and then had to call her to start the process. God knows why she called me at 4:30 p.m.
3. Then everything was positive, and she said she will give update my next day which she didn't give :)
4. I asked it next week and she said final discussion is pending with VP and then she will give me feedback by a specific day. That day passed. The nest day passed. I mailed her. I called her. No response again :)
5. The interviewers themselves were too good and asked appropriate questions but the process and the way they treated a candidate was pathetic and I decided no to go ahead with them.

Interview Question – The interviewer gave me a situation and asked me to write automation framework for the same. He then started digging further based on how I was going about it.   Answer Question

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Snapdeal.

Interview Details – They started with some weird problems. It was more of a math problem than a programming exercise. After than they scheduled a Telecon. HR forgot that she had scheduled a telecon, or probably she forgot altogether that they were hiring. I had to call them 5 times to give my interview. Finally, some one talked to me about a few basic things and they told me I have cleared that round.

They called me to their office. Again some weird subjective questionnaire. I gave some answers.

I failed to understand what they were trying to judge.

Interview Question – What is a nested class! (It was actually the toughest question they could come up with)   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Bad interview
