Syntel Interview Experience - Mumbai, October 11, 2014
I'm Raj from Gujarat, I have done E&C. Folks monster gave me a opportunity to connect with Syntel. So first of all thanks to monster.
On 31st may 2014, there were aptitude test. It have 3 sections reasoning, verbal and aptitude. Each section have 30 q and for each section time duration was 20 min. So 90 q in 60 min. I felt that it's all about on time management. Test was not much tough. What you need to do is, manage your timings. If you able to do so then you will surely crack this part without any hurdles.
On 16th September I got the call letter for further interview process. Interview at Syntel (Mumbai) on 11th October. There were 3 stages in interview process. All considered as a elimination stage. First one was GD. Group of 10 members was formed and given 2 min exactly for preparing on "Influence of social media".
Disappointed that I was not able to initiate even when I have a point and proper explanation on hand. But I rapt attention of others quickly and made my points with examples in firm voice. After that no extra points added in discussion because of it was stuck on misuse of Facebook! Folks they literally quarreled. So at last they asked individual views to all, except me and one other girl. Just because we made some good points. 10 out of 7 selected. There was not any fixed criteria of selection. I also heard that in many group all was selected and in many 2 or 3 selected.
Now turn for technical round, 7 panels running. Luckily I got a very genuine panel. He has down to earth nature and very frank. I grabbed his attention by saying good noon in replied he did firm handshake and gave positive gestures. He asked tell me about yourself. After that he asked my interested subject. I'm from EC. So I told him that I have only knowledge about C.
He asked me data link list, draw it's diagram, types of linked list etc. Then asked concept of stack, Fibonacci series etc. Then he gave me a kind of puzzle but it was time consuming. I did my best but not got d exact answer. But he appreciates that you have done good. I told him give me 2 mins I will bring you answer. But he said its ok I got your logic. He asked my area of exposure in Syntel.
Then asked about final year project, impressed on my project. Latter he asked me some questions based on my project. As I told he was impressed with project, so it took 20 min. Overall interview run for 40 - 45 mins. At Last he told me I have done, anything would you know from me? I asked that what the career paths available in the company are. He replied too genuinely. After 10 mins I had to knew that I cleared. After 45 mins I called for hr round.
Hr took 20 mins. She asked me tell me about yourself, describe in detail of your family background, how can you differ from other candidates, values of Syntel (speed, synergy. etc. ) , companies recent achievements, if your joining location will be Chennai den?, did you appeared for interview in any mnc, why would you join Syntel. And last she said I've done. You can asked me questions. I asked how the company has been affected by recession, what are the incentive for your top performer.
