Interview Experiences

Name: Sonia Chopra

College: Amrita School of Engineering, Bengaluru

Branch: Computer Science

Type of interview: Off-Campus Interview

Student Interview

I always wanted to work for a company where I can use my communication skills, and Deloitte is the only IT Company that gives preference to the vocabulary, and communication skills more than the coding skills of an individual. Deloitte believes in women empowerment and gives more preference to women candidates to create gender equality. I applied for the Deloitte off campus drive through AMCAT. I prepared for the interview through previous year papers available on geekplacement. Almost 30-40 % of the questions in the paper were exactly the same as I studied on geekplacement. The interview process had four rounds, AMCAT written test, Deloitte Versant Test, Group Discussion, and Face to Face Interview round.

Written Round

 In the written round, there were three sections, Verbal, Quantitative Analysis, and Logical Reasoning. The respective sections were as follows:

Deloitte uses a special US style of scoring for better evaluation If the question is submitted in less than 60 seconds than bonus points are given to the candidate.

Deloitte Versant Test

After the results of the written test were declared, there was a Deloitte Versant Test. This was a telephonic round in which the basic Reading, Listening and Analysing skills are tested.  For this test, I received an email from the aspiring minds. The email comprised of the registration id and the IVR (Interactive Voice Response) number. I had to make a call on the given IVR number for my telephonic round. There were six modules in this test, which were Reading, Listening, Listening Deductions, Grammar, Error Identification, and Speaking.

Module 1 (Reading) – Total 12 sentences were sent to me on my registered email id. After a beep sound, I had to recite each sentence one by one. I even practiced the sentences before I made the call.

Module 2 (Listening) – In this module, the IVR recited ten sentences one by one, and I had to repeat every sentence word by word. I paid complete attention, so I don’t miss out anything, as the sentences were quite long and were not even repeated.

 Module 3 (Listening Deductions) – In this module, the IVR played a small audio clip, comprising of a conversation between two people for 2 min 30 sec. After the audio was over, IVR asked some questions related to the conversation I heard in the audio clip. For example, what is the conversation about? Or whom do you think the woman was talking to?

Module 4 (Grammar) – In this module, the IVR asked a question and gave four options from which I had to choose one and answer. They were basically, Multiple Choice Questions related to grammar.

Module 5 (Error Identification) – In this module, the IVR was speaking a sentence one after the other, and I had to find the errors, such as grammatical errors in the sentences. The common errors were related to basic concepts of grammar.

Module 6 (Speaking) – In this module, a topic was allotted to me, and I had to speak for like 45 seconds on that topic. My topic was Global Warming. IVR gave a pause of 30 seconds before I began to speak.

 After the test was over, the call was auto-disconnected by the IVR. The results of this test were declared, and luckily I cleared the test. In the email along with the result of the Versant test, there was an information about the time and test center for the group discussion round.

Group Discussion

It was no like a traditional Group Discussion round. Here we were divided into a group of seven and a topic was given to each group. Each member of the group had to prepare a 10-minute presentation on any one aspect of the topic. Our topic was Technology- a boon or a curse. I gave the presentation about the benefits of technology in our day to day life.

After all the presentations were over, the results were announced. I was amongst the shortlisted contestants moving forward for the next round. Out of 275 students, only 43 students were selected for face to face interview.

Face to Face Interview

I had to report at the Deloitte Mumbai campus on 24th May 2017. The interviews began at 9:00 am. I was very confident and was well prepared for my interview. After an hour, my turn came. I went into the HR cabin and greeted the interviewer. He asked me to take a seat and asked for my resume. The interviewer seemed very polite, which boosted up my confidence. He went through my resume and started to ask me the questions,

  • Tell me about yourself.
  • Any hobbies?
  • You have specified reading, so what type of novels do you like?
  • Give a brief about your final year project.
  • Are you comfortable working in group projects?
  • Any plans to do masters?
  • Are you okay with relocation?
  • Thank you, you may leave we will inform you soon.

According to me, the interview went quite well. I was hoping for a positive result. After two weeks I received a confirmation email from Deloitte India that I have been selected. The joining letter was attached to the email. That was the happiest day of my life.

Type of interview: Wipro Turbo ON Campus Drive

Student Interview

I was very excited when our college informed that Wipro would be coming for the On-Campus drive at our college. The drive was exactly after three weeks. I asked my seniors about the interview process to which they told me to refer to geekplacement and some competitive books. The college provided us with the link to apply for the drive. After registering on the link, we got we admit cards for the CoCubes Test. Wipro is one of the top leading IT Industry of India. It believes in fulfilling its oath of women empowerment and gender equality. Wipro gives equal opportunities to women employees in the ratio of 2:1. There were three rounds for the Wipro Turbo hiring, Cocubes Test, Technical Interview, and the HR Interview

CoCubes Written Paper

There were 70 questions and the total time allotted for the paper was 70 minutes. All the questions were of MCQ pattern, and there was no sectional cut off or any particular time frame for any section. There were four sections in the paper, Verbal, Quantitative Analysis, Technical Questions, and Coding Round. The difficulty level was very high. Maximum students were eliminated in this round.

  • There were 20 questions in the Verbal section. There were questions related to, Sentence Correction, Prepositions, Grammar, Reading Comprehension, Synonyms & Antonyms. The difficulty level of this section was medium, but this section holds very high importance, as this is the section in which one can score.
  • In some papers here was a Quants section and in some papers it was Logical section. In my paper I had the Quants section. The difficulty level ranged from medium to high. There were 20 questions in the section related to Speed& Distance, Algebra, Equations, progression, Profit and Loss, Ratio’s, Averages and Geometry.
  • There were 30 questions in the Technical section. This was the most difficult It had questions related to basic concepts of Oops, C, C++, DBMS, OS Concepts, Data Structures and Algorithms, Computer Networks and Computer Architecture and Organisation.
  • There were two questions in the Coding round. The languages allowed to use were C, C++, and JAVA. The questions in my paper were, first, to print a particular pattern and second, to find the sum of odd factors.

The paper was very difficult but thanks to PrepInsta for helping me out. Only 30% of the total students were able to qualify for the Technical round, and luckily I was in that 30%.

Technical Round

Before the face to face interview began all the qualified candidates were given four profiles to choose from for the Technical Interview. Whatever the choice we would make, we will be asked questions related to that. The choices given to us were:

  1. Digital – Questions based on INTERNET OF THINGS(IOT), Machine Learning or any cutting-edge OOPS, Concepts, Basics in C/C++/JAVA, Deep discussions on the final year project.
  2. Analytics – Projects based on BIG DATA would be expected, Questions on SQL and Coding would be asked.
  3. Product Engineering Services (PES) –It would be more about general and resume plays key role. They would expect all platforms knowledge.(SQL,C,C++)
  4. MNT (for Associate Telecom Engineer) – For Mechanical and Communication. It is mostly opted by the ECE students.

I chose the Product Engineering Services profile for my Technical Round. As my turn came, I went into the cabin. The interviewer asked for my CV. He went through the CV thoroughly. Then the interview began. Questions related to basic C and C++ were asked such as Data Encapsulation, Encryption, and Hierarchy. I was asked to write logic for two codes on paper out of which one was to reverse a string. The interviewer asked me about my final year project, OCE certified so you must have a thorough knowledge of JAVA, Can you create an immutable object that contains a mutable object?

1)  what platform did you use?

2) Draw the ER Diagram of your project.

3) OCE certified so you must have a thorough knowledge of JAVA, Can you create an immutable object that contains a mutable object?

4) Is there any difference between StringBuffer and StringBuilder in Java?

The interview went for like 30 minutes. I am so thankful to PrepInsta as it had been my savior in the Technical Round. Many students were eliminated in this round. Luckily I qualified for the HR round.

HR Round

This was the easiest round. The HR just asked some basic questions such as:

  • Are you willing to relocate
  • Is this your first job interview experience?
  • Do you have any plans?

The interview went for like ten minutes. I was very satisfied with my interview. The results were announced after two hours, and I got selected as the Project Engineer at Wipro Pvt.Ltd.
