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: The online test consisted of 2 rounds: Aptitude (20 points) and Coding round (5 points). The test was held on Cocubes platform.

The aptitude round consisted of logical and quants based questions without negative marking. There were 30 questions split into two subsections: (20 questions) logical, word problem (basic speed, time, etc) and (10 questions) data interpretation which were to be answered in 30 minutes. The difficulty level was moderate for most of the questions and it was really difficult to answer all of them within the stipulated time.

The aptitude round was followed by a coding round. The coding round was fairly simple and consisted of 2 questions to be answered in 30 minutes.

The first one was a simple implementation based on the given conditions in the problem statement. (Take care of the corner cases)
The next was a string manipulation based question where you had to deal with the frequency of the characters in the string.

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

Answer: In the first interview, which lasted about 45 minutes, I was asked:
Basic DBMS based questions (focused more on indexing). SQL joins related questions. Some basic python libraries and packages related questions. To write any classification algorithm from scratch in Python. Gave a hypothetical situation where ML had to be used in the insurance claim verification process. About the academic as well as internship projects that I had done.

After the first round of every candidate, they were immediately giving the response if the candidate is going to the next round or not. Out of 15 shortlisted, only 3 or 4 could make it to the second interview round.

The second interview was conducted by the manager who was also presented the ppt. It was more of a discussion with him rather than an interview. The second interview lasted 50 minutes. He asked me:
What technologies are you passionate about? What are your 3 strengths and weakness? Describe your projects? Which is your best and your worst project? About machine learning and deep learning algorithms, which algorithms would perform better in particular scenarios, Talked about healthcare challenges in India, Various deployment techniques and issues with them, About Kubernetes, dockers, cloud computing, microservices in general.

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

Answer: It all ended with an HR interview which lasted 30 minutes. Only 2 could clear both the interviews. The HR asked traditional HR questions like:

Tell me about yourself, family.
What does your daily routine looks like?
Why UHG? Location preference.
Plans for higher studies?
Do you think the journey is important or the destination?

Question 5:Key factors for your selection.

Answer: Always ask questions during the presentation. I asked them 3 questions because of which the entire UHG team took notice of me and they started the interview discussing more on the questions that I had asked. They focus a lot on DBMS in the technical rounds, and I was good at these. Also, the projects as well as my experience in Healthcare with Machine Learning were very helpful for my selection. Also, during the interview when I was asked to write the code, I went through the constraint analysis and discussed my approach with them thoroughly and then wrote the code accordingly. It helped and was more effective than simply writing the code quietly because they tend to analyse your thought process and problem solving skill.

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

Answer: At the end of every round, the interviewee would ask if you have any questions. Make the most of this opportunity to ask them about their companies or the roles that they’re offering. HR will basically test your communication skills.
