Then 3rd interview was through skype, and you dress if you were going to an in person interview, talk about more in depth of skill set required and what programming knowledge do you have like data structures, algorithms, java, workflow process like scrum and agile methodologies.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Syntel (Baltimore, MD) in July 2016.

    Interview

    There were the initial phone call screening, online assessment test which are 90 questions about analytical, mathematics, and technical (C, Java, DBMS, OOP). You got 25 mins for each part, which leaves you approx 50 seconds for each question. I think the questions are tough and I didn't most of it before time runs out. Then the skype interview about your experience with the related technologies and more technical questions, and then the background check... I've only gotten this far, still waiting for result on this.

    Programmer/Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Syntel (Phoenix, AZ) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Interview took place over two stages. First interview was more about background history. Simple questions about stuff from resume and explanations about why I was looking to get into the industry.

    Second interview got bungled several times as the interviewer forgot that he had to do it. It was with a lead programmer. Questions were technical in nature but not difficult ones. Was hard to understand the interviewer's heavy Indian accent which cause some confusion and wasted 8 minutes of time trying to come to a mutual understanding of an answer to a question.

    The process was not hard at all, it was in fact too easy. It also had nothing to do with the position I was being hired for. He talked about Java, and only Java. The position was for COBOL which is a much lower language. Interview should have asked more generic questions about programming.

    Interviewer seemed to know the subject matter well though.

    Interview Questions

    • Interviewer asked about a feature in a Java app I wrote for a college project and then asked me various questions about alternative ways I could have accomplished that same functionality. Then asked what if a client wanted something changed.   1 Answer
