    It follows the same process of one aptitude round and two rounds of coding. Then there is the technical interview and the HR.
    The technical interview is mostly done during the coding rounds itself, where they would ask you on how to optimise the code and better solutions to the same problem.

    Interview Details

    Selection process was more based on written test and programming. There were 3 programming rounds followed by 1 technical round and 1 hr round. Selection process is started with written test having aptitude and programming question then one more round having 5 programming problems to code and again one more round and that too unexpected. It was three hours programming test having only one problem. In my case it was to implement "cab booking system with certain conditions and functionalities". Coming to technical, it was average they asked some aptitude questions and basic knowledge of databases, web technology. and HR round was just a formality.

    Interview Questions
    • Most difficult or unexpected question was one question in three hour(including evaluation time). It was little bit lengthy and needed too much patience and concentration. Most dangerous thing was you need to implement in normal core languages like c, c++ or java.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. It has two salary offers based on performance in selection process.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Zoho.

    Interview Details

    Round 1: Written Test
    30 questions 2 hours.
    Mostly 1 word answers, not objective
    20 programming questions, typically to find output.
    10 aptitude questions

    Round 2: Easy Programming Round
    5 questions, do maximum. 3 hours
    Mostly easy puzzle questions. To print something in a format. Practice easy questions from sites like HackerEarth, HackerRank, codechef etc. Do atleast 2.5, that may get you to the next round. Language of your preference. can use IDE. Pretty nice invigilators.

    Round 3: Advanced Programming Round
    One question. 3 hours
    The question for us was to implement a Student Allotment System. Student details are given, branches in 2 different quota in 2 diff colleges is given. Sort the student details according to marks. Print option to
    1. Continue with allotment
    2. View allotment by college
    3. View allotment by department.

    Each student should be presented with options to indicate the branches he can apply (based on marks and seats available in his quota) and get his selection.

    Extra marks for using a DB software. (My advice: dont do it unless you make db apps a lot. There is 3 hrs and lot to do, you need something in presentable form)

    Round 4: Tech Interview
    Depends on who interviews you and how u performed in the past rounds.
    For me, it was just what you do. Which all languages have you coded, tell me about the works, tell me about your apps etc.
    For some others, mathematical puzzles were asked.

    Round 5: HR interview
    Pretty much about yourself and family.
