Syntel Interview Experience - Jaipur, October 11, 2015
I passed out this year from PCE, Jaipur and sharing my interview experience so that you all will be ready to tackle the rounds.
Syntel conducted the off campus drive "SYNTELLECT 2015" in the month of June. There were altogether 4 rounds comprises of Online Aptitude test, Group Discussion, Technical Interview & HR Interview.
The results of the 1st round i.e. Aptitude Test was announced in August 12, 2015 and on September 22, 2015 I got the interview invite from campus recruiting team. The location of interview was same where I have given the online aptitude test.
Now coming to the description regarding Online Aptitude test, it comprises of 90 Questions in 1 hour. Some question there are quite easy while some questions mainly english comprehensions are little lengthy. The fundamental to crack the test is not to stick in a particular question because the time is running so fast and you have lots of questions. One advice from my side is that try to keep extra 5 or 6 minutes at last in your hand so that you will attempt all the questions which you have not done yet by guessing because there is no negative marking in this test. After that the result was announced as mentioned above and 33 students from my college were shortlisted for further rounds. Thank God, I am one of them :).
After that I will got interview invite mentioned above. On this day, Campus Recruiting Team of Syntel welcomed us with the Company presentation and the offers Syntel will provide. They also aware us with the next rounds which are:-
A) Group Discussion.
B) Technical Interview.
C) HR Interview.
So, the next round was GD, We were divided into group of 10. The topic for our discussion is "SUCCESS IS ALL ABOUT HUMAN RELATIONS". The fundamental to get succeed in this round is to speak and be active because this is the selection round of Syntel. 7 students from my group was selected. The 3 are rejected because they are completely dumb during whole discussion.
Some of the topics given to other groups are:-
ARE WOMAN GOOD MANAGERS?
IS FACEBOOK BOON OR BANE?
COMPARISON BETWEEN INDIAN & FOREIGN EDUCATION SYSTEM.
BORDERLESS WORLDS-DREAM OR REALITY.
EDUCATION AND SUCCESS-IS THERE A CORRELATION.
IS CHINA A THREAT TO INDIAN INDUSTRIES?
PRIVATIZATION OF EDUCATION IS GOOD OR BAD.
The result was then announced immediately and we have been moved for Technical interview. I am the first one to be interviewed. Some questions that to get prepared for this round is :-
A) Knowledge of project.
B) Basics of C, C++ or Java Whichever you are friendly (As I am an ECE student, he asked basics questions from this side such as difference between C and Java. ).
C) Knowledge of trainings.
I perform very well in this round but got trapped in puzzle for long because I am not hoping a puzzle in this round. Finally I solved it but mind it took too long to solve it:).
The puzzle was quite simple as there were 10 pairs of socks (20 socks) and in what minimum attempts you will find a similar pair. (Answer-11).
After that they we went to the waiting room where the ones who clear the tech interview was sent for HR interview and the ones who are not selected are asked to leave. Few students got eliminated in this round. I am selected in this round too.
The next round was the HR interview. It was just Cherry on the Cake for me. As I entered the room, She told me to take the seat asked for my resume. She asked questions regarding my hobbies and asked what have I done to get it. I answered well, she was quietly impressed. Then she asked about the preferences regarding joining. I chosen Pune as my 1st preference. She asked Why Pune Why not Chennai?I answered well. Then she told me to move towards the HR Refining hall where we got information regarding joining and final results.
That's all for the interviewing day. Guys who reached HR rounds look quite happy and confident there.
After that the final result with Letter of Intent and Joining Kit were sent to the selected ones. Thanking God, I am one of the lucky one to get placed and got the joining.
Remember Syntel conduct off campus drive quite late but you will get the joining immediately once the result was announced.
SO GUYS BEST OF LUCK FOR UR FUTURE.
CYA IN SYNTEL :).
