Senior Software Engineer Interview

Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Software AG in January 2015.

Interview Details

It was on weekend and I attended the interview with moderate preparation. Interview processes looked very quick and fair. But may be because of the position, they expected much. Interview was kind of OK (not too difficult), but they asked some design problems, ALL RELATED TO JAVA. 1st round was taken by two senior persons, and questions asked to me were,

1. design classes and interfaces for Undo/Redo functionality (for example, we see in notepad right, undo redo feature, to simulate that). I was puzzled and using Observer pattern, I gave a probable solution, but they were not convinced.

2. Write program for printing all permutation of string

3. Sort Map based on values

4. Given a NxN matrix and three nodes in it, I need to fill all including nodes with 0

5. Garbage Collection

6. Java Reflection and its uses

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Software AG in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    It consisted of 1 phone rounds followed by onsite interview of 5 rounds.
    Question asked were mainly from programming languages ,algorithms,databases amd object oriented concepts. Cleared all the rounds but what they were offering was way less than my expectation, though I clearly mentioned my expectation in very first discussion happened with the HR. My whole time was wasted which could have been avoided as they already knew they can not pay what I was expecting. Be careful when they ask is it negotiable. you will ask for 30% and after everything they will offer you 10%.
