    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Sapient Global Markets (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    For entry level positions it's fairly simple. There are two discussions you'll have around generic personality and problem solving skills. Then you'll meet with the hiring manager to break down your relevant experience. Finally, I met with the hiring managers supervisor to really solidify that I would fit well on the team.

    Very much a, 'can I have a beer with this person,' type of company.

    1. Coding exercise: a real world coding problem to solve in 3 hours. This is important to write quality code as further rounds are be dependent on it.
    2. Technical Interview: It's relatively easy, questions were on language familiarity and software design. Nothing unexpected.
    3. HR Interview: This is quite awkward. Asked about current company and project. Since I was leading the team questions asked like how to manage tough deadline. How will you handle a subordinate who is not performing etc.

    Interview Questions

    • Technical round involves all end-to-end software questions. Rather they would have been clear to what their project requirements want and interview questions could have been made based on that.
      The interviewer is mostly from Noida location and since I attended it in Bangalore, they could have just completed in the telephonic call, but they forced me to attend the same telephonic in Sapient office.   Answer Question
