Anonymous Interview Candidate in Patiala (India)
No Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at BlackRock (Patiala (India)) in September 2016.

Interview

In total there were three rounds, First was consisting three sections( Software engineering aptitude, SQL, Coding). Don't worry there is no negative marking though the question were of very high level. Second Round was Technical, People were nice and cool. They Asked me only data Structures, and 4-5 programs. There were 3 puzzles also. Make Sure you have a good knowledge about java and sql too(though i was not lucky enough to get any question from them) .

    Reasons for Declining

    Their Gurgaon office works in the 11-8 shift, so that the folks in US can come and work in their normal shifts and there can be some overlap. (Don't the guys working in their Gurgaon office feel like second class citizens within their organization?).

    I would have had no personal life if I would have worked in that shift. I politely declined.
