    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Bangalore (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Thomson Reuters in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I got a call from the HR with reference to my resume in a Job portal and scheduled a F2F interview on a weekend. The interview happened in the Yamlur road office in Bangalore.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview process was good but the questions were too theoritical. For a 6+ years professional in Java/J2EE they had a couple of ladies with barely 3 years of experience in the panel.
      1) What is the Servlet class hierarchy?
      2) What will happen if you call Servlet's destroy method from init method?
      3) Design a class diagram and write the high level logic for a game of chess

      I found most of the questions were from a website in the list of J2EE interview questions. And these ladies were not ready to take any answer other than whatever they see in the website or think is correct.

      Please have people with good understanding on technology and enough experience in the panel
