## Java Consultant Interview

Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Xebia in February 2015.

Interview Details

Interview process is really good. The HR was really co-operative. I missed first round of telephonic interview due to office load but the HR rescheduled it again. The interviewer was really nice. We started with TDD as it was mentioned in the job description. He asked me the basic concepts of TDD, how did we implemented in our projects, what are the advantage and disadvantage of TDD. Concept of any mocking framework. Then he asked whether I know BDD or not.

The interviewer seems very technical guy and was really polite and friendly. Then we moved to the core java. As I do not have ample preparation I failed in this round. Most of the questions were asked from basic concepts. He asked me on Cloning, equals hash-code contract, Collection - what is concept of hashing based data structures, different implementation of Set, Map, there differences. When to use which data structure, serialization concept. Comparable and comparator their differences.

It was a nice experience although. Good warm-up for me for the upcoming hiring season :).

Interview Questions
• Difference between Hash-Map and Linked Hashmap?
Why we use clone()? What is the purpose.
TreeSet related questions.
Difference between Comparable and Comparator.
TDD and Junit Related questions.

Interview Details

1- Technical round. Technical round is average, interviewer would ask you questions as if its the highly technical round. But in all its average. Be prepared with core concepts, and if you have real working experience, it will not be difficult round for you. [Normal]
2- Technical Assessment - Coding round. [Normal]
3- Technical Round - Mainly for coding assignment you did. [Normal]
4- Techno Managerial Round - Just a normal discussion. They might checking your communications skills. [Normal]
5- You need to submit your docs, and wait for their response.

Though Recruitment people are good, but you will feel that they might be little arrogant when it comes to salary negotiations. They will treat you like as if you are dying for a job, even if you are working for some good company at good salary.

Salary offered was not at all good. Salary Structure is also not standard as well as not good.

## Senior Software Engineer Interview

Application Details

I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Xebia in December 2014.

Interview Details

Interview was easy, was through till the last round, nothing unexpected or tough questions. Simple collection questions, spring mvc/security application. There were no DS/algo questions. In one question I replied him back with LinkedHashMap and the person taking interview was totally blank, there were many such instances where that person had no clue what I was talking about.

Interview Questions
• The most unexpected thing was the attitude of the person sitting at the highest position, he was asking very easy questions(over the call) but had a lot of attitude issue(he must be kid or recently promoted to that position), he was talking in very sarcastic way as if he is the smartest person on earth. I had to stop him in middle and explain how one should talk to some other person and leave the interview there itself.   Answer Question

## Consultant QA Interview

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Xebia in September 2014.

Interview Details

Applied through Mail and got call from HR.

1) There will be a written round with 3 Pure Java Coding Questions ( make sure to practice some core Java things such as arrays , Strings etc. )
2) No selenium related Questions in written - that was not fair as profile was for QA Automation Engineer and no Selenium Question was kind of wierd
3) Very well mannered HR and Call-based Scheduled interview - So no chaos for your return. You just sit and wait..everything will happen automatically - Three cheers for that
4) After written you will be provided some refreshments if that is late ( In our case we have a written of 2 hours )
5) After 15-20 minutes , your code will be reviewed by technical panel and they will ask you to explain your code during technical Interview . In my case , 2 Person took my technical Round2.
i was first asked approach of the questions , if any thing is missing from your end they may ask you to write pseudo code etc.
Few Questions regarding Selenium /Webdriver difference , No Framework related questions :(
few DB queries , few Manual testing questions like TestPlan , Strategy and blah blah....

I didn't cleared the Interview , as Coding section was the deciding one and i missed some points in my code.

After TR , HR Shared its feedback and asked what went wrong ( This was a good Experience unlike most of the companies where HR says you can leave for the day ..) .

So , even though i was not selected but Vibrations were quite strong there and if you were a tech-lover guy ..please try Xebia once ..

## Consultant Interview

Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Xebia.

Interview Details

The Interview process was nice, but now they have reduced the difficulty bars and are letting in many people for strategic reasons. The rounds I faced were:

1. Scheduling from HR after a general discussion and check on communication
2. Basic technology interview - not too hard/ easy peasy around the tech
3. Coding assignment on a problem statement
4. TA pairing on the assignment done followed with a technical interview 2
5. Manager discussion ( which almost makes no sense)
6. HR negotiation for a week for salary etc

and then they ask for salary slips and documents and then release the offer.

Interview Questions
• TA pairing was nice but would come easy if you are hands on with the technology stack   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
The negotiation is trivial and the HR might bite you if you are not really good at it.

So be prepared for hard core negotiation here. The future increments would not match other good companies. So negotiate well and in advance
