    1st round was aptitude consisting 4 commonly asked puzzles.
    2nd and 3rd rounds were technical interview consisting of only the definitions/differences on very unusual topics.
    - The interviewer was very rude, unprofessional and constantly demotivating.

    - They had also allowed students of electronics engineering branch to sit in the process and even shortlisted few after 1st round. During their interview process they constantly harassed those students even abusing them on their academic projects.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Grofers (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)) in January 2019.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of two rounds.
    1. 1 hour hackerEarth coding test (2 questions)
    2. One face to face discussion.

    Overall experience is sort of negative. I was interviewed for a data engineer role and I was told that I will be working on designing and improving the existing architecture of data-platform. I don't think for this role asking people to write code for checking permutation is the right way to test the skill required for this role.

    Also the hackerEarth test was kind of flawed where I was not able to run my code as it was not able to get input while running the test cases. This thing happened with. other candidate as well

    Competitive programming is not real programming. Anyone who is practicing hacker rank/earth can easily get away with solving permutation of string question. It doesn't mean he / or see can design and build a production ready system.

    I would like you guys to start giving some data challenge where one has to think and design a solution to a problem (a mini version of the problem which he or she will be working if he/ she got selected for the job) and in the face to face discussion you can ask his thought process as to why he has designed the system in that way and if you can identify some pros and cons for your approach (instead of writing a sql query in face to face round. Any one can google that).

    I think the major focus should be on designing a system and not on checking if a person knows some algorithms (which will never be used in a production system) or sql queries.
