    Principal Software Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Symantec (Pune (India)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Online Round: Very basic linux questions...nothing was asked on Linux fundamentals...questions were mostly related with Linux commands like passing multiple arguments over pipe, how to search for string in files, how to recursively list files, diff between set and map etc

    Onsite Round 1:
    Very bad behaviour. No greeting, handshaking, introduction by interviewer. No question was asked about my prior experience.
    He simply started asking same kind of questions which were related to Linux commands or some basic things like socket calls...This time I really got confused if position was for Sysadmin job or Software Engineering Job :)
    Only relatively tough question asked was to implement your own NEW and DELETE function. I gave implementation of MALLOC in glibc.
    Interviewer did not even gave me opportunity to ask questions about job position.

    After Lunch(that you have to do alone :)), round 2 started

    Onsite Round 2:
    He was relatively better interviewer. Here interviewer was mainly focused on C++(and one very simple programming question :)). Interviewer gave me an opportunity to ask questions about job position.

    Got Rejected.

    There were no data structure and algorithms questions. I have 7 years of experience but they did not even bother to ask DESIGN level questions to me. They did not asked me about my current work and architecture of a product that I worked on. Actually, these kind of questions are asked in any normal Software developer interview especially if it is for senior dev role((I have been taking interviews for over last 2 years).

    I got rejected because I was not able to answer some of linux commands and linux API related questions(asking linux cmds in whole round for sennior dev role was strange to me) and C++ questions(I had not worked in C++ for last 4 years).

    My guess is interviewers simply had no knowledge beyond what they are working on. Questions asked were of really bad quality as questions were neither related with computer science fundamentals nor related related with my work experience.
