Mindtree Interview Experience - September 12th, 2014
After travelling a two and half hours of Journey changing 7 buses finally reached a college in the city outskirts in Bangalore. Got into the college and taken online test. Done very well. Got to know that results will b announced in the evng of more than 2500 students who have attended the Offcampus.
After waiting a long time in the afternoon a very few got messages around 200-300 students in phone who got selected. I was waiting for my message. But no message in the phone. Waiting waiting. But no msg. Came two know that those who didn't get a message can leave the campus. Ok it was already late and I went to canteen to have my lunch. Once I have completed my lunch I got a thought of checking my mail. I have opened my mail and found that I got short listed for the next round and even had no time to scold the Bsnl network then I rushed back to the admin office and they accepted it and told to wait till evening for the next round. We have waited till evening and completed the programming round by the subject I have. We got short listed for the next round and next rounds will b conducted on the next day. We have left the campus as it was already half past 8 in the night.
Next day prepared some programming and went to the college in the city outskirts. We are waiting for our turn eagerly. There he calls my name. I was cool this time and thought of cracking the interview anyway.
I entered the room seeing the smiling interviewer.

Shaked hands with each other. Ok thank you sir. !
I have left the room and waiting for the results in the seminar hall very eagerly even not going for lunch. We have been waiting since a long time. One side Hunger another side eager. Told to friend if announcing results please inform thru phone there by leaving to canteen. On having my lunch I got a call that results are being announced. We ate fast and rushed to the seminar hall. Sitting in the last row as there was no place in the hall as all are eagerly listening to the names occupying all chairs in the hall. We are eagerly waiting for our names from the last row with thousand eyes. Here comes the name "Namala Vamsi Krishna". I was so much excited that I thought of jumping in the hall.
But I controlled my senses and walked along the aisle between the claps from the audience and boarded the Dias and went to podium and collected my offer letter. My face was glowing as if a child was given a big chocolate to eat, on seeing the offer letter. I came smiling all the way in the seminar hall and sat. I was one among the very few students among the selected students who are less than 100. Once the meeting was done after telling the package and place, date of joining we came out of the hall and college.
Then called to home and there were no words to explain their happiness even. I could feel their happiness in their words. Finally I felt very happy and relaxed after a long wait for the Job quest even after proving my selves many times but could not make them till the end but this time I made it and at the end I deserved my Job.
Thank you. Hope It may help you for your interview experiences. All the Best. !
