    Application Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Zoho in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process consisted of five rounds.
    Round 1: C aptitude - 40 questions - No negative marking - 2.15 hrs - No MCQ's- Day 1
    There were two types of questions.
    Type 1 - Write output for code snippet
    Type 2 - Given a code snippet with few missing lines and ouput,write the missing lines to generate the output.

    Round 2 - 10 questions- Machine coding - Day 2(3 hrs)
    Those who managed to solve 4 or more cleared the round. I solved 4. Only after solving a question the next question will be given.
    Ques 1 : Given an array print in following format.
    [1st maximum,1st minimum,2nd maximum,2nd minimum,..]
    For example if array is [1,2,3,4,5] then output will be [5,1,4,2,3]

    Ques 2: Given an sorted array and a number check whether the array sum is divisible by number or not. If array sum is not divisible, then remove atmost 1 element so that array sum is maximum. If it is not possible to remove an element, output not possible.

    Example - [1,2,3,4,5] and number is 4
    Here array sum is 15 and 15 is not divisible by 4. So remove 3 from array. Now array sum is 12 which is divisible by 4.
    So output [1,2,4,5]

    Ques 3: Extension of ques 2. If no element can be removed or one element cannot be removed,then remove 2 elements and print the output array. If more than one pair yields the same result, then remove the first pair encountered.

    Ques 4: Given an set of parentheses and some string inbetween them, eliminate unnecessary parentheses and print the string.

    Input:(())(
    Output:(())
    Input:))(zoho)
    Output:(zoho)
    Input:(((Zoho))
    Output:((Zoho))

    Round 3: Advanced programming question (Day 2 -3 hrs)(Day 3 - 3 hrs)
    There were 6 tasks. Only completing a task another will be given. First 5 tasks consisted of processing a 3*3 matrix.,and 6th task was to apply all the 5 tasks for a n*n matrix. Those who completed 5 tasks cleared the round.

    Round 4: Technical -(30-45 mins) (Day 3)
    I was lucky to get the interviewer who mentored me during round 2 and round 3. He started asking about my projects, then asked about oops concepts, os, simple mysql queries. This round went off well.

    Round 5: HR (10-15 mins)(Day 3)
    This was a formal HR round. Questions were why zoho? and other Hr questions.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and got a call after some months for the role of Member of Technical Staff. First round is Programming with 5 questions and timing is 90 mins. Then after that got a call from HR for a technical discussion in ZOHO office after a week. First technical discussion is about the project currently I'm working on very elaborately and the guy asked some difficult stuffs from Java and then asked me to write a program that I didn't complete in the programming round. Then I had another round of discussion with another guy for about an hour where he asked about OOPS, Memory management and Strings. Then asked to write a program of Continuous largest sub array in an array. Then HR told my offer is on hold for some time, then finally got a call after two weeks to have meet with Product Manager in ZOHO office. He asked some puzzles and some general discussions. Finally HR round and got an offer that night. I'm happy that I could make it through because of Jesus Christ.
