Senior Java Developer Interview

Senior Java Developer
Bangalore (India)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Symantec.

Interview Details – Got a call from HR
Called for face 2 face.
Had 2 face to face on the same day :
  Mostly related to algorithm, problem solving, designing the solution, threading. Each round will be conducted by two persons. No nonsense questions. Purely technical (algoriths, data structure). I felt interviewers were good and trying to help to come up with solution. Instead of final solution they were interested in seeing the approach and confidence. (Each interview lasted for 1 hour )
3rd round was with senior manager. He was more interested to see the problem solving skill, given the problem how will you tackle it and trying to give ideas when needed.
4th round was with HR, typical HR questions.
5th round was with director, again technical questions and managerial questions.

Overall I had very good experience, I really liked the way people treated me. I've been through many interviews, this was one of the best experiences.

Interview Question – Given the problem, come up with data structure and algorithm with O(n) complexity!   Answer Question
