I have answered most of the question with accuracy.

Exact same thing happened with me too. They say the company builds products that makes hiring process easier but the management itself do not know how to handle job applicants and acts like smart deceivers. I had 3 interviews and all of the interviewers said they were impressed. In the end after they asked me to send all of the documents to release the offer letter and didn't contact me again. I was badly ghosted and didn't get any response till now from the company even though I was bugging them relentlessly. All of this is a complete waste of time for applicants and leaves us vexed with a really bad opinion about the company. Less

You're trapped in a room with 3 switches for 10 minutes. There are 3 light bulbs outside the room , but you don't know which switch corresponds to which light bulb. What do you do in the 10 minutes you're in the room to figure out which switch corresponds to which light bulb when you walk out?

2 Answers

turn on two switches for 10 minutes and leave one off. Then, right before you leave turn off another one so that one switch is up and the other 2 are down. Obviously the on light bulb corresponds to the high switch. The off but still warm light bulb corresponds to the switch that was just turned off. The other off bulb corresponds to the other switch Less

Or, turn on 1 switch for 10 minutes, just before leaving turn it off and turn on the second switch and exit. first switch - the bulb that is off but warm. second - bulb that is on third - cold and off Less

All questions were fair and based on my experience and what they look for in candidates. Since I was fairly well-prepared for both the phone and on-site interviews, I answered all the questions with confidence. As (I) expected for engineering interviews, some of the questions involved (a) processes in test and manufacturing environments, (b) test methods, (c) electrical diagrams, and (d) situational and behavioral questions.
