Infosys Interview Experience - Jalandhar, November 14, 2013
I am from NIT Jalandhar.
Infosys visited my college on November 14, 2013 for campus recruitment.
I was benefited by the interview experiences on this site so I thought of sharing my interview experience.
1. APTITUDE REASONING TEST QUESTIONS: 30.
DURATION: 40 MINUTES.
2. VERBAL ABILITY QUESTIONS: 40.
DURATION: 35 MINUTES.
Interview could be HR, Technical or anything else.
It all depends on the interviewer. In our college there were a total of 7 panels. Each panel had one member. Some of my friends were asked only HR (and she also got selected) , Some were asked technical (Including me) and one panel 4 was asking questions from physics and chemistry of 12th standard. Students who gave interview to panel 4 were not at all happy but they also got selected finally.
CSE and ECE students were sent to a separate panel as they were asked only the technical questions.
After giving the test I was not sure of my selection as in verbal part one cannot be completely sure of his answers. Paper was pretty easy. I only prepared from INDIABIX.
There are many sample papers on internet based on the 2013 pattern. You can solve them. Although I didn't do much practice. I was Already well prepared for aptitude since I gave the exams of TCS, IBM, Capgemini and Mu-sigma before Infosys. I always got selected in the test except IBM. But in TCS I was rejected from the interview and in capgemini and mu-sigma I couldn't clear the GD. Guess it was not my day after all.
Anyways so after the results of Online Aptitude test was announced I was selected. I got one night to prepare for it. In which I studied about the company and brushed up C++ and java a little. If you don't know C++ and Java you can tell the interviewer that you are not prepared and they will ask HR questions and you may still get selected.
But always remember it all depends on the interviewer.
I went to the TPO (Transfer and placement office) of our college at 8:30 am. Interviews were conducted in alphabetical order and I was the last girl to give the interview. My turn came at 6:40 pm. They gave a half an hour lunch gap at around 1 pm.
So my Interview was like this :
(I entered the panel 6 room).
Me : Good evening sir! (smiling).
I : (smiled back) Good evening supriya! sit down.
I : Long day. You must be tired!
Me : (Smiling) no sir, its a part of the proffessional life.
I : U are not a professional yet.
Me : Yes sir! but I will be in near future. So I am getting ready for that.
I : Well supriya its good if you are like that. :).
Me : Yes sir !

I : Ok supriya, so tell me about your B-Tech project which you have done in Gujarat.
(He already had my resume in his hands).
Me : Sir can I use this paper.
I : Ya sure!
(I explained the complete project which I did at Oil and natural gas corporation, hazira. He asked a few questions and was satisfies with my answers).
I : So how is your compatibility with programming.
Me : sir I am very very compatible with programming. C++ and java used to be my favourite subjects when I studied them.
I : Ok and being a chemical engineer why do you want to join an IT company?
Me : Told him about my passion for progamming and all. And said that currently I am not fascinated with my branch.
I : So you studied C++ and java in first and second year. You must have forgotten by now.
Me : Yes Sir, since I studied it way back, I don't remember each and every thing But I have brushed up a little for the inteview so you can ask me anything.
I : Ok so tell me the four basic pillars of OOPS.

(Told the defenitions and examples of each. ).
I : What is the difference between object oriented and procedure oriented programming?
Me : (Told).

Me : (Told).
(A few more theoritical questions which I don\'t remember).
I : Ok supriya so can you make a program for printing the fibonacci series by using reccursion.
Me : Sure sir !
(I wrote the program and showed it to him).
I : (Looked at the program) I want to print the complete series supriya.
Me : I saw the program again (It was printing only the last digit of the series).
Me : sorry sir !
(I tried again and again and thought for almost 2 minutes. But at that time I didn't get it).
Me : sorry sir ! I am a little bit stuck up right now.
I : That's no problem.
I : Ok supriya so do you have any problem in relocation?
Me : oh no sir ! see I am basically from UP and have been always living in Rajasthan. I am studying in Jalandhar and did my training in Gujarat. So I basically love visiting different places and I am not homesich since I have been in hostel for last 4 years.
(I don't think he heard my last answer. Its just a formality and he was also doing everything very fast since it was already so late and a few more candidates were waiting outside).
Verdict - selected.
I was really happy as it was my first non dream placement.
