    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hyderabad (India)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at MakeMyTrip (Hyderabad (India)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I had 3 rounds in the recruitment drive. The HR took down my details with competing offers and said they will get to me for further process. They didn't respond in a week. At the end of second week after the interview, when I reached out to one of the recruiters, she told me that the feedback was positive so far and redirected me to another HR for the further process. The other HR has so far been unavailable. After trying to contact him thrice on phone and once on email, I reached out again to the former HR. She asked me about my competing offers and said that they can't match up so i should go ahead with the offer I have. I didn't get the point of not being clear about it from the beginning. Why stall for more than 2 weeks to tell me that they can't offer me as much? The interviewers were good though.

    Second round was purely based on automation testing,lasted for 50 mins
    Third round was managerial round(I was bit confident after clearing last round that i will go through this round also,but the interviewer was not confident, I think he was not ready to take this round as his behaviour was very reluctant),lasted for 2 hr 15 min,This guy was so slow in judging the candidate :) :)

    Senior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hyderabad (India)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at MakeMyTrip (Hyderabad (India)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I got a call from consultancy and interview was confirmed in the same week. MMT team fly down to Hyderabad for interviews. There were two days to choose from Saturday or Sunday for interview. I went on Sunday to Radisson Hyderabad. I was asked for first round of face to face interview by HR after an hour I visited the place. The first round was to check basics of your algo and about you in resume. Interviewer introduced herself to me and than asked about my experience.
    Then there were 2-3 questions on Linked List, Sorting, 1 questions on merging two sorted arrays, 1 on multithreading. After the interview was over in about 40 odd minutes, I asked her about profile and the skills they are looking in a candidate. She described me the profile and skills required like problem solving and all. But then she gave me a feedback about and told me to work on DS and Algo which I was surprised to hear. I have given optimised solution and psuedo code for all the questions she asked me. This was strange and after sometime HR came to me asked my feedback about interview. I told them that It went well from my side. But he told me that interviewer thinks I have to be to the exact geeksfogeeks optimised solution because of my year of experience which is laughable argument. During interview I asked her to write down the complete code but she opted for pseudo code. I admit that I was rusty so it took time for me to write the first one but after that I was on a role. After getting the answers of few questions she even skipped me writing a psuedo code and moved to next question. After all that I can make two things out of it either MMT guys are in no mood for hiring today or they need people who cram geeksforgeeks line to line but not having problem solving skills.
    I had very good impression of MMT in the past but it changed now completely. And for MMT guys if you are not sure of my psuedo code to be correct, open geeksfoegeeks and match code on my sheet.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. Find middle element in a link list ?
      2. Which sorting algorithm is better for linked list and why ?
      3. Psuedo code for merge sort in link list ?
      4. Merging two sorted arrays ?
      5. Two threads : print T1 T2 T1 T2 T1 T2 ?
      There might be one more question but I do not remember that now.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at MakeMyTrip (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)).

    Interview

    The recruiter called and gave an overview of the job description. I was required to take part in a drive that was happening in their gurgaon office. During the interviews, the process took more time than was expected (roughly 6 hours) because of the number of candidates.

    The questions that were asked seemed relevant - mostly from data structures and design / architecture.

    I was called again for next rounds of interviews. Again, it was DS / Design / previous work.

    In total, I had 4 technical rounds and 1 HR discusstion.

    Interview Questions

    • Q. Design a webserver. The interviewer clearly explained what he was looking for - web concepts, thought process, depth, how you think for extremely vague problems and whether you ask the right questions   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Tried negotiating but couldn't convince them even after showing them offer letters from 2 other companies.

    QA-Lead/Manager/IC Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chennai (India)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at MakeMyTrip (Chennai (India)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I got a call from a recruitment firm about the job and got my resume forwarded. It got selected and I was asked to come for a interview on Saturday. I was little wondered that they shortlisted me, as there was mismatch on job domain and my current domain(they are into web domain and I am from embedded domain). My interview was scheduled on saturday at 3PM, Clarion Hotel chennai, so I reached 2.30PM. I thought that they gave me time slot based on panels availability, I was wrong. There were several candidate was waiting and there were no seating arrangement, candidates were standing on corridor. No people from MMT was there, as they all went for lunch leaving everything unattended. This gave me a feeling like MMT team came to chennai to enjoy chennai beach/good food/good stay, nothing more.

    However after waiting for around 1.45hr, my turn came at 4.15pm. Interviewer guided me to the interview room, and asked me to give my technical background, while he was going through my resume. He was surprised to see there was no Java in my profile, and said they are looking for java only...sounded very stupid to me. He said he will forward my resume to the team which is working on Microsoft technologies. I said you can evaluate me on other parameter like DataStructure and if you find suitable then forward to that team, Interviewer did not agree. He asked one question and two followup question then-

    Qn: What you very during code review?
    Followup: (I mentioned about good coding practice including design pattern) Which pattern you used for automation?
    Followup: Write example code for factory pattern.

    Interviewer attached my profile and sample code and promised to forward it to the respective team. Thats it, I wasted my day as MMT recruitment team did not screen my profile properly before calling for interview.... it was a very basic mistake.

    I had similar experience earlier when interview panel fly to other city to conduct interview. I guess they need a minimum crowd for flying to other city to have fun, so they don't mind wasting others day like this. Next time I should ask for a telephonic round before visit something like this, I advise you to do the same, specially if you have family and priority.
