    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Siemens (Chennai (India)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The hiring process was done in four rounds:

    Round 1 (Programming Aptitude) - This was completely based on C++, easy enough. Knowledge of other languages won't be enough as the questions were very specific.

    Round 2 (General Aptitude) - 3 sections (Numerical, Verbal and Logical). All sections were quite challenging given the limited time (time limit for every question). The numerical section required some knowledge of statistics.

    Round 3 (Technical Interview) - Fairly straightforward. Tests your basic knowledge of computer science concepts (be prepared to write moderate algorithms).

    Round 4 (HR interview) - Really short interview with commonly asked questions. My HR interviewer wasn't that focused on the interview and seemed really distracted.

    Interview Questions

    • Without any scenario or premise, "How will you manage the team?"
      Maybe it sounds simple, but coming up with a clean and good answer is hard.
