Her Interview was taken by UnsaidTalks Interviewer: “Nandini”

Profile offered: Analytics and Capabilities

Job Location: Depending on the situation they will tell us by the end of December whether it’ll be online or offline. Location preferences are Gurgaon and Bangalore

Branch and Graduation Year: ECE – 2022

Cgpa Cutoff: 6

Interview Difficulty Level: 8 (1-very easy, 10-very difficult)

Here are the questions we asked Ananya Garg to know about her interview experience.

Question 1: Introduce yourself to our readers.

Answer: Hi, I am Ananya garg. I am a fourth-year electronics and communication engineering student from Thapar University. I am from Haridwar, Uttarakhand. During my time in Thapar, I have been part of some amazing societies like virsa, spades and I love to sing and play cricket.

Question 2: Describe Your written test experience specifying the number of rounds, details of each round, and type of test platform (online – amcat, hackerearth, etc / offline)

Answer: There was one written test that consists of two rounds. Approx 900 students sat for this round. The total time given was one hour thirty minutes. The interview was on WebEx. The MCQ round was of 45 minutes and 60 questions were given. The questions were normal level but there was negative marking. The questions were based on aptitude and some technical questions were based on DBMS, data structures, OOPS, and computer fundamentals. You can practice aptitude questions from indiabix. I have practiced that from there. The DBMS, OOPS, and OS you can do from gate smashers YouTube channel. Then in 30 minutes, we had to do 2 coding questions. They were medium-level. One was based on priority queue and the other was on array implementation.

Question 3: Describe your all technical interviews specifying the number of rounds and details of each round (if any) (please share coding questions if possible)

Answer: 35 students got selected for the interviews. There were two interview rounds, both were a mixture of technical and HR. So in the first round of my interview, I was asked about my project and internships and technical questions were asked based on pointers, data structures, SQL, puzzles, guesstimates, and a code was given to be done. I would also like to say that prepare a 10-minute speech like something for your project explanation so they can get whatever you are saying and then they can ask questions. The project discussion was for about 15-20 minutes. Then after that, some HR questions were asked like why do you want to join our company and what do you know about AMX. AMX is a credit card company, so they asked what is the difference between a credit card and a charged card and all the basic HR questions. Then the first round got concluded.

Question 4: Describe your all HR interviews specifying the number of rounds and details of each round

Answer: In the second round, I was asked a puzzle estimate and some HR questions and they also asked what I know about the row. They asked me some tricky questions like I am doing my internship at Samsung (it’s a prism project) so they asked me if I got selected in Samsung and get a PPO why would I like to go to AMEX. Six students got selected. In the interviews they don’t ask very high-level questions, basic sorting, array implementation, or trees are asked. I was asked about the sorting question and there were some constraints that I had to apply in the code.

Question 5: What were the key factors for your selection?

Answer: I would say good time management in the MCQ as there was negative marking. Only mark the answers that you are sure about and being confident.

Question 6: What are the things students should focus on in order of priority?

Answer: Firstly you should mention only the things that you are sure about in your resume because they give the resume a lot of priority. So, mention only those things which you know very well. Then you should revise and practice DSA thoroughly because it is the main for every coding test and interview process. You should revise your basic theory concepts like pointers and they can even ask very simple questions like why do you use C++, why did you prefer c++ over java or any other language. Practice HR questions as they hold a very important role in your interviews.

Question 7:  According to you, what role do extracurricular activities as well as participation in societies play?

Answer: So I have taken part in a lot of extracurricular activities. I play table tennis, cricket, badminton, and I have been part of societies. So basically it gives you confidence and somewhere it helps you in your interview process and for the life ahead. so, I would say there is a certain confidence that builds up over time with the societies and it’s an opportunity to open up and expand your network. College is all about networking. So expand your network as much as you can and society is a great opportunity for that.

Question 8: Any Other Advice you would like to give to your juniors?

Answer: Firstly, I would say that maintain your cgpa from the start because many companies apply CG cut and why miss any opportunity because of that. You can easily maintain an 8.5 or 9 above cgpa. Study a little bit from the start so at the end you will not be under any pressure. Also, enjoy college life wholeheartedly and have fun. Basically, improve yourself every day in college. Develop many skills.

Question 9: How should one deal with the rejections?

Answer: Don’t mind the rejections. Your other friends who don’t even know a lot can be placed before you but never get intimidated by them. Practice your own. Every person has their own journey and be yourself.

Question 10: There are so many online sites available that it gets confusing where to start studying data structures. So what’s your advice?

Answer: I started from hackerrank because there are levels mentioned like easy, medium, difficult. But with time you have to increase your level. So, then you can jump to Leetcode. Leetcode is a good platform for practice. There are more test cases than other platforms. When the placements were coming close, I did the love babbars 450 question dsa sheet.

Question 11: Is competitive coding necessary to clear interviews?

Answer: No, competitive coding is mostly for off-campus placements.

Question 12: How can we contact you? (LinkedIn Profile Link/Contact No./etc.)

Shefali Dutta’s NXP Semiconductor Interview Experience

“Shefali Dutta” who was interned at NXP Hardwaretalks about her interview experience and some other tips to prepare for placement season. Check out what she says about the placement season.

Her Interview was taken by UnsaidTalks Interviewer: “Vidushi”

Profile offered: Software and Design Engineer

Job Location: Noida/Bangalore

Branch and Graduation Year: EIC – 2022

Cgpa Cutoff: 7

Interview Difficulty Level: I would rate it to be 6. (1-very easy, 10-very difficult)

Here are the questions we asked Shefali Dutta to know about her interview experience.

Question 1: Introduce yourself to our readers.

Answer: Hello everyone, I would like to thank UnsaidTalks for giving me this opportunity to talk about my experience. I am currently in the fourth-year Electronics and Instrumentation Control department from TIET. I am pretty disheartened that this would be my last semester but at the same time pretty excited about what is to come next.

Question 2: Describe Your written test experience specifying the number of rounds, details of each round, and type of test platform (online – amcat, hackerearth, etc / offline)

Answer: There was 1 round of online test in which questions related to Digital, Analog were asked. NXP conducted the online test which comprised both objective and subjective questions. Objective questions were based on basics of electronics like K maps, Q-M method, Counters, and 1 or 2 logical reasoning questions. The subjective part played as the foundation of the evaluation scheme, two questions of subjective were based on state and circuit diagrams, and some questions based on circuits related to CMOS, PMOS, and Om-Amp were asked. One question related to STA was asked and a question on Sequential detector which comes under FSM was asked. Online test made us shackle our minds to remember what we studied in 1st year and 2nd year or we studied throughout. It tested how much of a grasp we had on our basics. It was held on the platform Talent Decrypt.

Question 3: Describe your all technical interviews specifying the number of rounds and details of each round (if any) (please share coding questions if possible)

Answer: There was only one round of technical interview of 45 minutes. STA(Static Time Analysis) is of prime importance to the NXP corporate. Basic Digital Electronics was asked. One should know how do circuits work. Different types of multiplexers were asked. One should know how to design differential amplifiers, magnitude comparators, look ahead adder, subtractor, shift registers, counters. Conversions between the flip flops and latches are of prime importance. FSM(Finite State Machines ) is also important. In analog questions on topics like BJT biasing, FET biasing, CMOS, PMOS, Op-Amps were asked. Basics of programming like finding the output of a program also give an edge over other candidates. Scripting languages like VHDL, Verilog should also be learned. In this round, questions based on the answers you give in the subjective test were asked.

Question 4: Describe your all HR interviews specifying the number of rounds and details of each round

Answer: No actual video interview for HR. A telephonic call came for the HR round of interview. Questions like how keen are you to join the company, have you applied for other companies before this, what are your future plans … these questions were asked

Question 5: What were the key factors for your selection?

Answer: 1. I had good command so, I was pretty confident about my answers.
2. I was considerate of the fact that I am short on time. I was considerate of my teammates.
3. I was honest.

Question 6:  According to you, what role do extracurricular activities as well as participation in societies play?

Answer: I have been a part of many societies ever since my 1st year. I worked with many people who have different ideas and approaches. This is what I think actually helps to crack an interview because when you work with different people who have different ideas, different approaches to the same problem, you actually understand a lot about someone else’s perspective which might be better than yours. If you have a habit of being individualistic, working alone, and not getting involved in anything rather than studies, you do miss out on learning about other person’s perspectives which is something every company looks for. Societies help you socialize a lot and build networks.

Question 7: Any Other Advice you would like to give to your juniors?

Answer: 1. Have command over all your subjects
2. Self-study is very important.
3. Be punctual with your schedule.
4. Do practice questions from the books.

Question 8: Any Other tips for the technical interview round?

Answer: Interact with your interviewers, they are there to help you. Do not give up on any questions. If you are posed with a problem to which you cannot find a solution, ask your interviewers they will give you a hint.

Answer: There were 2 technical rounds in which 1st round was for 1 hr and he asked 4 coding questions involving trees, graph all he picked and the first question was on leetcode( test platform) and the ques was about string and you have to find the longest substring with no repeating character since I have a lot of practice on leetcode I did it at the first try and after the submission. He sends me the second ques. But after knowing that I did the first ques. He canceled the second ques and then he asked to find the longest binary search tree in the given binary tree. I got confused I was taking my time 10-15 min.

Profile offered: Full stack developer

Job Location: Not confirmed yet but probably Bangalore, Hyderabad, or Mumbai.

Branch and Graduation Year: ENC – 2022

Cgpa Cutoff: 7 or 7.5

Interview Difficulty Level: Not very tough so 7 (1-very easy, 10-very difficult)

Here are the questions we asked Vartika Singh to know about her interview experience.

Question 1: Introduce yourself to our readers.

Answer: I am Vartika Singh, currently in my final year of BTech in electronics and computer engineering. My cgpa is 8.25 and I have recently been offered a position of a full-stack developer at Optum (full-time). I was a part of society Orion and IETE.

Question 2: Describe Your written test experience specifying the number of rounds, details of each round, and type of test platform (online – amcat, hackerearth, etc / offline)

Answer: There were two rounds in total, one technical and one HR round. Students were shortlisted on the basis of cgpa. It was on Mettel. There were MCQ’s based on core computer subjects.

Question 3: Describe your all technical interviews specifying the number of rounds and details of each round (if any) (please share coding questions if possible)

Answer: Technically, it was around 30 minutes but mine went on till 90 minutes. It was on Mettel. It started from a discussion on my project(based on web-dev). You should be very well versed with the projects on your resume. They will surely grill you on that. I got questions on the front-end side (HTML, js). There were questions on core computer subjects like OS, OOPS, DBMS. They were not very tough (my suggestion would be before the interview prepare from interview bit). Your explaining skills should be good. Then there were two coding questions (live coding). The first one was a basic string question. That was easy, I was able to do it. Second
was based on a greedy approach, I was not able to solve the full question but he wanted the approach and I explained it to the interviewer and he was quite happy with it.

Question 4: Describe your all HR interviews specifying the number of rounds and details of each round

Answer: It was a 10-15 minutes telephonic interview. They basically ask about what you did in college. The first question was obviously an introduction. They ask about what all work you did in societies, your strength and weakness, job location preferences, discussion about your projects. As I was not from a computer branch, I was asked about the reason why I chose a tech-based job.

Question 5: What were the key factors for your selection?

Answer: Whatever you write in your resume please make sure you know about it very well. If you are unable to solve any questions you should be able to explain your approach. Basically, good communication skills are important.

Question 6: What are the things students should focus on in order of priority?

Answer: Please make sure you maintain your cgpa from the first year. DSA is very important. It’s your choice you take a paid course or learn from youtube or online resources. CP is not an issue but you should know dsa. You can choose anything ML, web dev, AI but whatever you do you should know it thoroughly and you should have a good project on that.

Question 7: According to you, what role do extracurricular activities as well as participation in societies play?

Answer: Extracurricular activities play a significant role. Maybe they don’t improve your tech part but definitely, it helps you enhance your personality. These help improving soft skills which are very important. when you work with a team you learn teamwork, communication skills. Your overall personality is developed which is extremely important in corporate sectors. So I will say don’t miss out on any opportunity.

Question 8: Any Other Advice you would like to give to your juniors?

Answer: You should also practice aptitude as only tech is not enough. Your online tests will not be clear without aptitude. Make sure that you understand each coding ques you do. It should not be like cramming questions as that will not help you. Placements are not very tough. You can do that easily and the branch doesn’t matter. Maintain your cgpa. Keep doing constant efforts.

Question 9: According to you what should be the minimum cgpa students should maintain?

Answer: It is something branch-specific. If you are from computer branch, I would recommend that you people should always try to keep your cgpa around 9 as there are a lot of students in that cgpa bracket (9-9.5) so it will be better if you maintain a high cgpa because there are some companies like Apple, Samsung who consider only the cgpa cutoff. They will not even take your test. If you are from a non-computer branch even then you should try to maintain a high cgpa. But above 8 anything will do.

Question 10: There are so many online sites available to practice dsa. Which should we choose according to you?

Answer: Practice on Multiple sites is not at all required. You can pick any one site. In today’s time, the best site is leetcode you do that.
You can also take any paid course or youtube is also a good option. YouTube channels like Striver and love babbar has dsa sheets. They are quite good. I myself solved love babbars sheet. You should basically know how to handle a problem. In the case of an online sites, leetcode is very good.

Question 11: How can we contact you? (LinkedIn Profile Link/Contact No./etc.)

Here are the questions we asked Shreya Sandhu to know about her interview experience.

Question 1: Introduce yourself to our readers.

Answer: Hello everyone, I’m Shreya Sandhu. You all might know me in two ways, the girl who plays a lot or the president of Girl UP Tiet. Both have always been proud moments for me. When I look back to my college life, it is full of memories and new experiences, and towards the end of my journey, I have achieved what I wanted to. Many people would call me dominating, arrogant or rude, but I’m just a girl trying to make my way. I have always aspired to inspire the people around me by leading the example, which I have done for the last four years.

Question 2: Describe Your written test experience specifying the number of rounds, details of each round, and type of test platform (online – amcat, hackerearth, etc / offline)

Answer: There were three rounds. 1st was the online test, then the interview and the last was the HR telephonic call. The online test had three sections. 1st was SQL MCQs, 2nd had coding MCQs, and the last had aptitude questions. The aptitude round had five sub-sections that had different time limits for each sub-section. The sections were:- logical, attention to detail, numerical reasoning, pseudo-code, etc.

Question 3: Describe your all technical interviews specifying the number of rounds and details of each round (if any) (please share coding questions if possible)

Answer: I only had one technical interview, but a lot of people had 2 or 3 interviews. It was a long one which went on for 1hr 15mins. They asked SQL questions and some coding questions. They also asked 7 to 8 brain teasers/puzzles and then some basic resume questions.

Question 4: Describe your all HR interviews specifying the number of rounds and details of each round

Answer: It was a telephonic call. There were three to four questions, out of which only two could get you rejected, I think. 8 out of 10 times, people get rejected in an HR interview. Suppose the interviewer asks you about your MBA plans. You are not supposed to say that you will never go for an interview or that you will opt for it in the coming years. If you want the person to hire you and invest in you, you need to make sure that they feel that you would give them some returns. My answer was that learning is a growth curve, and I would want to master in my field, but right now, I plan to explore my domain as much as possible. You kind of have to dodge that question.

Question 5: What were the key factors for your selection?

Answer: When I look back at my interview, I am sure they were looking for an all-rounder and not just in the sense of extracurriculars. that is secondary. They were looking for someone who knew coding, who knew SQL, and who also had a logical aptitude brain. A lot of people aren’t able to answer because they are nervous. 2 things that helped me stand out were my confidence and my communication skills. Also, my experience in internships (as an intern with Snapchat) and leadership helped me make an impact on my interviewers.

Question 6: What are the things students should focus on in order of priority?

Answer: Focus on your coding, DBMS, and do focus on aptitude and general knowledge because a lot of time in an interview, they ask very general questions. I had a lot of sports achievements on my resume, so I was asked how many medals India won in the Olympics. Be aware of your general surroundings.

Question 7: According to you, what role do extracurricular activities as well as participation in societies play?

Answer: There are two ways to look at extracurriculars. one is that it will make my resume look good and the other is you actually learn from it. It is good to have them in your resume because it speaks about your personality. The average time someone gives an individual’s resume is 7sec, so you need to have something that stands out. It can be a fantastic internship, an amazing project, or an amazing extracurricular activity. Participating in all this made me sure that when I sat in my interviews, I was not going to hesitate to know what to speak and what part of my personality I had to show because I learned all of that in the past four years. I always had sports in my life, which built my confidence.

Question 8: Any Other Advice you would like to give to your juniors?

Answer: Suppose I talk in a general sense even if you are preparing for a particular profile. That’s great, but you should always have a backup. You never know what could happen. My dream companies were Bain, ZS, Deloitte, etc. I was targeting all these. I got rejected in ZS. In my first interview, I got left. Next was texas and instrument. Again I got rejected, and the third was BlackRock. Do not have a closed mind regarding placements. be prepared for everything. Try to find your interest or build it from ground zero.
Sometimes it seems you can do everything alone, but it’s important to have a buddy with you to prepare with.

Question 9: How can we contact you? (LinkedIn Profile Link/Contact No./etc.)

Aryan Chaudhary’s American Express Interview Experience

“Aryan Chaudhary” who was placed at “American Expresstalks about his interview experience and some other tips to prepare for placement season. Check out what he says about the placement season.

His Interview was taken by UnsaidTalks Interviewer: “Radhika

Profile offered: Given choice between Software Engineer and Credit and Fraud Risk Intern. I opted for the latter because it revolved around data and data analytics.

Job Location: Presently Work From Home, later it can be from Gurgaon.

Branch and Graduation Year: Computer Engineering – 2022

Cgpa Cutoff: American Express hires through various competitions: one is Campus Programme, another is a national Competition(Smartathon). For these competitions, there was no CGPA cut but there is Global Services Group at AmEx which also hires students for which the CGPA cut is around 9.7.

Interview Difficulty Level: 9/10 (1-very easy, 10-very difficult)

Here are the questions we asked Aryan Chaudhary to know about his interview experience.

Question 1: Introduce yourself to our readers.

Answer: Hi! I am Aryan! I am a 4th-year student at Thapar pursuing Computer Engineering. I have always been good at academics. Apart from academics, I do enjoy sports and gaming.

Question 2: Describe Your written test experience specifying the number of rounds, details of each round, and type of test platform (online – amcat, hackerearth, etc / offline)

Answer: Smartathon was the written test only. The test platform was HackerEarth. It was 5-hour long from 9 PM to 2 AM with 4 questions(2 ques- 30 Marks each and the rest 2 ques- 10 Marks each). 2 questions were from the field of Machine Learning (dataset required good time to analyze), 1 was straightforward from K-nearest neighbors (only easy for those who had experience in ML). Overall, the test was challenging because no question was available online, and ”we were free to use Google Chrome”. My Rank was 105 after that was the interview round.

Question 3: Describe your all technical interviews specifying the number of rounds and details of each round (if any) (please share coding questions if possible)

Answer: The placement and recruitment department of AmEx is entirely interactive. The first standard question of every interview: “Tell us about yourself,” is the first crucial opportunity; it should revolve around the fields you are highly comfortable answering and which company is seeking. Besides academics, add your hobbies or other interests(sports or gaming) because it represents something about you. It will also give a clear idea to the interviewer that you are an open person with whom one can discuss different things. I didn’t have much interest in Competitive Coding, so I mentioned Machine Learning, Parallel Computing, High-Performance Computing, and Distributed Computing. AmEx uses Distributed Computing, so I smartly added, “I have worked in this field and am interested in working further.”
They further asked about the projects(Machine Learning) I did during internships and a research experience in IIT Roorkee.
AmEx is a data-driven company, so they asked me about the concepts of DBMS, SQL queries and joints(types of joints in a router), python(tell a function of string library which can eliminate empty spaces and about pandas(function to implement inner joints)).
Remember…American Express asks PUZZLES!

Question 4: Describe your all HR interviews specifying the number of rounds and details of each round

Answer: 2nd Round was a combined technical and HR round. “Don’t compete with the interviewer, don’t test their knowledge; rather, discuss with them.” Some questions were:-
1)Asked about the project based on Machine Learning from my Resume.
2)On a scale of 1-10, what will you rate your python?
Ans: I rate myself 8 out of 10. I am very comfortable with python. I have worked on various projects in the field of web development, Machine learning, and Distributed Computing, but still, I rate myself 8 because I don’t remember each and every library and the corresponding methods and classes.
3)Explain the 3 concepts of Object-Oriented Programming used in your internship project. : Data Abstraction, Inheritance and Encapsulation
4)Puzzles (simple ones): Jane’s mother has 4 daughters…Winter, Summer, Autumn.
5) What is American Express exactly?
Ans: I have attended the pre-placement talk, so I knew about what AmEx is. It’s a financial product company. The main thing about the company is that their cards (unlike Visa and Master cards) do manage not only transactions but also provide credits…a good personalized experience.
6) Choose b/w Software Engineering or Credit and Fraud Risk Department? :
Ans: I opted for CRF as it includes finance and management so better growth, better opportunities, and even I am interested in this field of data analytics.
At last, they asked if I had any questions for them.

Question 5: What were the key factors for your selection?

Answer: You should be confident and comfortable. Write true things in your resume but also don’t undervalue yourself. Mention your contributions to any project. Next, Communicate with the interviewer. Don’t just answer…discuss with them….optimize the solution if you don’t know the answer fully. Consider the interviewer as your mentor; they have many years of experience.

Question 6: What are the things students should focus on in order of priority?

Answer: It totally depends on the interest of a particular student. If you are only placement oriented, do Data Structures and Algorithm, but if you are actually interested in Engineering, so explore various fields…Discover yourself!

Question 7: According to you, what role do extracurricular activities as well as participation in societies play?

Answer: It’s very important to be a part of societies. You can take sessions based on your knowledge, but the barrier is stage fear and confidence during communication. So, by participating in societies, you conquer your fears. After communicating with so many people in front of the stage and talking with seniors, you gain confidence, improve communication skills and eventually come into your comfort zone. Even when you take interviews for recruitments in societies, you develop the vision of an interviewer and get to know what exactly are the expectations from the candidates.

Question 8: Any Other Advice you would like to give to your juniors?

Answer: Take advice from seniors but do not follow them blindly because it’s not possible that you also have the same journey as your seniors’ and in the end, there must be no regret about what we chose. Follow your Passion!
Ask one question to yourself: “Placement ke liye engineering karni hai yaa engineering ke liye engineering karni hai?” For Placement, DSA is must otherwise pursue different fields: web dev, app dev, ML, AI, Blockchain, cloud computing, and many others.

Question 9: How can we contact you? (LinkedIn Profile Link/Contact No./etc.)
