Syntel Interview Experience - Visakhapatnam, May 31, 2014
I attended SYNTEL drive which was held in our college in the month of may 2014. There are total of three rounds.
1. Written Test.
2. Group Discussion.
3. Technical round.
4. HR round.
1. Written Test
First we attended the written test which was conducted by minster college..it was held in our college.
There are three sections in this round:
I didnt remember the questions but I suggest that RS Agarwal book and IndiaBix is sufficient for cracking this round.
After the test, we got the results of the written test in the first week of June. And we were asked to wait for the information about the further rounds.
And in the month of August we received a mail from the SYNTEL that the further rounds will happen in GITAM University, Visakhapatnam. We were asked to be ready with copy of the documents which were mentioned in the mail sent to us.
Finally the date for the rounds is 20th August 2014. Nearly 500-600 people attended there.
2. Group Discussion:
This was the main elimination round among all the other rounds.
A group of 12 members were formed and we were given the topic of State bifurcation and its impact. (Some of my friends were given the same topic and some other topics are Industrialisation, MNC's companies in India etc.)
From our group 3 members are selected in which I was one among them.
What I felt is that whatever you speak, speak loudly, and make your presence felt to everyone.
After the GD round, we filled the form given by the Syntel people and asked us to wait in a particular room for the next round (i.e Technical Round).
3. Technical Round:
Before attending this round, I waited nearly for 2-3 hours outside the panel room as our panel was the most toughest panel(I feel).
Finally, my name was called and I entered the panel.
Me: Good Evening Sir.
Interviewer: Good Evening Rahul, take your seat.
Me: Thank you sir.
Interview: So Rahul tell me about yourself.
I spoke for 2 minutes and he stopped me and asked me to explain me my projects.
after that he asked about the differences between C and C#, C++ and Java, C and Java, and some questions on my projects(I was from the IT background ).
I gave answers to everything.
Later he asked about my presentations and my preference location and why?
I could not answer to one question which was asked on Adobe flash.
After 10 mins he started asking me questions on DBMS, SQL
Actually I was well prepared with DBMS as it was one of my favourite subjects.
Nearly 30-35 mins i started explaining him about DBMS and SQL queries.
And finally he asked me some basic programs on swapping of two numbers without using a third variables, armstrong number.
While writing the programs I came to know that i cleared this round.
Officially he informed me that I cleared the TR round and was asked to wait for HR round.
TR was also an elimination round. Especially CSE and IT people be strong with the basics of the core subjects.
3. HR round:
My HR round happened for 5 mins.
Interviewer: Hai Rahul,
Me: Hai sir.
Interviewer: So rahul what is your Greatest/Favorite Hobby.
Me: I said playing Cricket.
Interviewer: So you play cricket but you don't watch cricket?
Me: I said Yes!! (I slipped..but I do watch cricket)
Me: I managed by saying something (:)).
Interviewer: What are your strengths and weaknesses?
Interviewer: Can you give some more weaknesses?
Interviewer: So if we send you to USA..will you?
Me: Yes sir, I am ready to relocate..even it is USA.
Interviewer: Good. I am done with you and will you please wait outside.
Me: Ok sir, Thank you.
I cleared this round and they informed me that i was shortlisted and was asked to upload some documents..that it..!!
So friends, first important thing you require is PATIENCE. then some luck.. I failed to get into some companies but my friends supported me mentally and encouraged me at every second. I was also happy as my dear friends also got placed.
In Order to crack SYNTEL, be perfect with your basics, extraordinary communication skills are not needed. Have a good grip on your RESUME.
Please don't loose hope, trust yourself. OM SAI RAM... All the best.
