CTS Interview Experience - Chennai, September 2nd 2014
CTS selection process had 3 rounds.
The aptitude was conducted by Smartminds. The question patterns were all available in Indiabix. The first round had 2 sections. Analytical and Verbal. No negative marking.
The analytical section had 30 questions out of which 15 would be the minimum cut off. Timing was lesser and the questions were very lengthy. A lot of them were up to 30 lines like, you will be given a job description and a candidate who is appearing for that job. The list of process requirements along with the filtering criteria would be mentioned. You will have to find whether the candidate can be selected and on what all constraints. These were the unexpected set of questions and more than 5 or 6 were there. Timer will seem to run quite fast as we have to prepare well in reading such lengthy yet detailed comprehensions. Apart from these we had pattern completion and reading comprehension too.
The verbal section had fill in correct tense forms, synonyms and conclusions based on set of statements. This section had 25 questions.
Clearing the first round will seem a cake walk as this has no quants :P.
The second round was Technical and I so unfortunate that my panelist was well versed and I had an hour of interview. The questions were like,
Tell me about new OS available, Diff between c and C++, explain them in terms of real time examples, what are the types of dbms, what is a rdbms, types of keys, sql queries, views, data mining concepts, data structures, difference among the types of data structures, their real time examples, C coding for Fibonacci and towers of Hanoi.
I was not selected in this round : (.
One more thing wish to add is the entire day has to have luck part too. Because my friends had fun and cool HR's who never even touched the topic of technical and were talking about sight seeing and NSS and all other stuff. They were shortlisted for the second HR round. All my mates who had technical HR's couldn't make it to the next level : (.
Wish you all the best in life and future!
