Senior Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee  in  Bangalore (India)
Anonymous Employee in Bangalore (India)
Application Details

I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Société Générale in August 2013.

Interview Details

Got a call through a consultant Triple'A Plus product in SG. I had 2 Face to Face technical rounds in Bangalore, 1 from Geneva (for Triple'A Plus product) and one HR round. The questions were specifically from Triple'A Plus as I worked for more than 2 yrs in that Product. The senior interviewer didn't know that much about the product where as being from the Triple'A Plus R&D team, I knew more than them. I got selected..

Interview Questions
  • To customize Triple'A Plus, we used to use Design Studio (a licensed version from Temenos & SG was not buying the license) hence I was asked manual customization process.   Answer Question
Reasons for Declining

Not much technical work that I was expecting from them.

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Société Générale in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interviewer had too much of attitude. He wanted to show off that he is great. More of trying to insult the candidate. Questions were from core java. Like overriding rules, finalize, actions classes provided by struts, when to use them, cloneable, comparable, comparator.....
