    Software Engineer In Test Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Snapdeal in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I got a call from HR and I must say she did her job perfectly. Right from explaining the job description in detail, scheduling an interview, updating me with the result of each tech round to final HR discussion.

    Initially, there was an online test in Java, SQL and UNIX which I cleared. After that HR scheduled my in person interview as per my convenience.

    Most importantly, during interview, I didn't have to wait much for my turn. Overall it was 3 technical round and then final HR discussion.

    First technical round started with light note on access modifier (though it was tricky). Then slowly discussion moved to tree, algorithms, data structure, collections and design pattern. Needless to say the Interviewer was highly technical and he knew what to ask and how. I must say it was a difficult round.

    After that, second round was more on implementation rather than just theoretical. So if you are appearing for an interview in Snapdeal, you must have solid hands on in writing precise and clear code.

    The interviewer covered almost everything an interviewee can ever imagine. It started with collections, different classes in JDK 5, 6 and slowly progressed to design pattern, back tracking, algorithms, data structure, comparator, comparable, scenario based question and many more. It was again tough to crack.

    Third round of technical discussion was more on analytic, problem solving. It started with SQL then puzzles. Puzzles puzzled me a lot. Please make sure you go through puzzles as well. I didn't know but now you know. Isn't it. :)

    All rounds significantly lead to 2 points.

    1: They hire the best among us and they know how to select right candidate for an opportunity.

    2: They know in and out of technology stack you have worked on, so be careful what you are writing in your CV. They ask questions from your CV as well.

    All technical rounds were so detailed and thorough that it's almost impossible to cover everything here. Focus more on data structure, algorithms, and solid hands on in any programming language.

    After that, HR updated me with the Panel's result. During HR discussion, I was asked questions like why Snapdeal, are you fine with Delhi location, about my previous employment history and an approximate date for joining.

    In a nut shell, A DAY WORTH SPENT WITH TECH EXPERTS.

    Manager Technology Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Snapdeal.

    Interview Details

    The recruitment process is pretty fast and straight. The travel and accommodation arrangements are very prompt. The followups and coordination from my recruiting HR, Hari Prakash Mishra, were really good.
    However, the understanding of the job roll by recruiting HR needs to be improved. The internal coordination between recruiting HR and operation HR could be better to avoid inconvience
    Advice to candidates: Ask all your queries and job description during the interview itself. Be very clear on what you are going to do after you join this company. All recruiting HR shows a lot of brownie for getting you on board and its normal everywhere. We should be very clear on what are our KRA's.

    Salary negotiation is pretty flexible.

    Engineering Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Snapdeal.

    Interview Details

    Total mess. No follow up from HR (I had to call them after every 15 mins to ask about what is happening), I had to wait for "more than an hour" to get the process started.
    This kind of process easily make you feel like a fool lost in crowd, zero hospitality. Finally, I was told that person who had to take interview is on leave.

    Interview started after long wait turned up into a disaster. The interviewer didn't even asked for introduction or my background or experience (didn't even scanned through CV). He looked lost and straightway asked me to write code on paper (constructs used 9 years ago). All the questions were too specific and based on his experience rather than mine. Looking at his behavior and body language, I had to interrupt him and ask whether the interview is for mentioned position or there is some mismatch. Finally, after his explanation about the role it was evident that explanation by HR doesn't match the ground reality.

    I hope someone from company will read this post and my purpose is not to defame or insult anyone but to highlight the following:

    1. Company should give clear picture of roles and responsibilities (anyone can play around with words).
    2. Time is precious, respect it.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Delhi (India)
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Snapdeal in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    First Round - Written test consists of Programming questions based on Java, Linux commands and data base. This test consists of Question based on development mostly predict the output. I didn't understand why they want to hire a QA for development position. When i ask the same from Interviewer , he said they don't want a person who write test cases but who can write piece of code.
    Second Round: As soon as second round started after waiting of 2 hrs interviewer asked me to write sorting program and tell the complexity. After his lame answer "We want QA who can do development ", I was done with him because I don't want to work for an organization where KRA of employees are not clearly defined Or basically they don't know the definition of QA.
    HR is very unprofessional and don't know how conduct the hiring process. Work environment is like a call center .

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing is difficult as interview was based on developer profile but They want QA to do that task. One of major foolishness of product based organization.   Answer Question
