Profile Offered: Software Development Engineer

Cgpa cutoff:  7.5 (It was set by our placement Incharge, Mr.Bawa. Officially there was no cutoff)

Interview difficulty level: 8/10 (1-very easy, 10-very Difficult)

Here are the questions we asked from Prateek to know about his interview experience.

Question 1: Introduce yourself to our readers.

Answer 1: I would describe myself as Gamer by heart and a lover of technology.

Question 2: Describe Your written test experience specifying the number of rounds, details of each round and type of test platform ( If online mention the type of test platform eg. Hackereart, CoCubes, Amcat etc).

Answer: 20 mcq questions and 2 coding questions were asked on hackerearth. Mcq were for 2 marks each and coding for 5 or 10 don’t exactly remember. Many people who had done both coding didn’t get shortlisted so focus on mcq equally. Don’t try to improve complexity in this round since it doesn’t matter what matters is passing the test cases set by the company. If you use c++ for coding do learn STL it will help tremendously.



Question 3: Describe your all technical interviews specifying number of rounds and details of each round.

Question 4: What do you think were key factors for your selection?

Answer: Good knowledge about DS, honesty, firm to my beliefs, good coding obviously, good discussions with interviewer about which ds to use and why.

Question 5: What would you like to advise juniors for technical skills they should develop for this company?



Answer: Know why a ds is made and how all can it be used. Mugging up will not help at all because even if you can write the code but not satisfactorily explain to them why you chose the particular ds you are out. Logical thinking.

Question 6: What would you like to advise juniors for cracking HR round of this company?



Answer: No HR Round
