    Later on technical f2f was held where the interviewer asked me to explain why I had marked those answers in my first round and also asked me to explain how my 2 programs work.Then he asked me questions on networks and OS. After that was the managerial round.Even in this round I was asked about OS and networking and also C puzzle.He then told me about my role and that will be an escalation engineer job.I was not expecting that role though.Later he told me that they will be stack ranking all the candidates and later based on that they will hire.So I had to wait for the call for a few days.I am still waiting for the call.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Montreal, QC (Canada)).

    Interview

    I applied online and got 1st round call interview from the US based HR, then a tele-interview with the hiring manager and was been asked to finish mini project prior next step. Once submitted the project moved to onsite interview and people asked all kinds of database related questions mostly related to the project you have done, during the interview I chose to speak English instead (seems some staffs who work there cannot master English, talking with very strong funny accents). Due to the French dominant environment no offers !
