IBM Interview Experience - MRCET, Hyderabad, JAN 27, 2015
Yesterday I got selected in IBM Off campus recruitment, which was held at MRCET, HYD 27th Jan 2015.
I got a mail few days back from ibm regarding invitation for off campus.
Criteria was 65% throughout 12/13/14 batch B-Tech.
I attended the online assessment test of ibm (ACAT) , on 27th. More than 500 candidate attended that test. In that test there was 18 question based on Time : Work/profit loss/speed dist/interest. /and some related questions but all are simple but the only thing is there was a timer of 2.15 minute for each question. No negative marking.
In that day we got the result and about 200 were selected for further round. They told us to come next day for further round.
Next day the process of ibm was too slow. They took all the documents, fingerprint and all the things which every company take from candidate after clearing all the rounds. But in this case they took all after clearing online test. On 28th the whole day waited for documentation @6.00pm I completed my process and they told us to come next day for further two rounds, one was communication assessment round (In person) and another one was Technical+HR round.
Next day from the morning I was waiting for my number for 2nd round. It comes at around 3.30pm, there was a beautiful young lady. I was very nervous but any how I controlled myself.
Me: Good afternoon mam.
She: Very good afternoon, have a seat.
Me: Thank you mam.
She: Had your lunch?
Me: Yes mam and yours?
Mam: Yes I too had. Are you tired?
Me: Ya mam a lil bit.
Mam: Are you angry?
Me: No mam. Why should I be (with a smiling. Guys its very important).
Mam: So come to the point. There are many festivals in our country. So what we can learn from festivals?
Me : Told.
Mam: Which one your favourite festival?/what you do in that festival/this related some questions.
Me answered all with a gentle smile. Mam was impressed by me.
She asked ok, nice. Hava nice day. You can wait outside for result.
Me: Nice to meet you mam. Hava nice day. And I went out of the room.
After few 10 minutes I got result that I cleared that round.
Out of 200. Only 150 member selected for the 3rd/final round.
I go to where technical round was going parallely. I waited there few mints. They called me. I went inside. There was 10 panels conducting interview.
I went there one mam told me to wait before panel no X.
In that panel there was a guy aged about 27: 28. He was looking very hard.
He called my name. I get inside.
He was very cool person. He asked me to introduce me. I said all the things for 2 minutes.
After he asked that why are you trying for it company while being an ECE student.
I just replied him very pleasantly that there is less numbers of core company in the industry and there is no such opportunity. And am interested in it field from starting itself and I did some courses C, C++, .Net all those things.
He at a sudden asked me how good you are in C?
He asked me to rate me out of 5.
I said 3.5 because am from ECE and am not that Expert.
He said, if I give you to write a programme. Can you write it.
I said yes sir. With confidence.
He just asked a simple programme to find out simple interest, which I was familiar with.
I just wrote the programme on a paper he gave me.
Then He asked. What do you think this role is about?
I thought that its for technical support. And I said that. But I was wrong. He corrected my answer by giving the details about the roles which they ware going to give.
It was infrastructure managing role. And then I thought I was gone. I'm not gonna be selected in this round. He was not looking satisfied with my answer.
He asked me what do you know about database management? I said that pleasantly. He asked me some basic related database/storage etc.
I just answered with confidence. Then he said hava nice day.
I came out and started thinking that I'm not going to be selected.
They said me to go to auditorium room for the result announcement.
I went there. I was very nervous and tensed that I was feeling very bad, .
After waiting 1 hour. They came to announce result.
First they announced the coupon number of those who are not selected.
I just closed my eyes and started praying. Every number he was calling and my heart beat was increasing to the higher level. After calling 40 names he stopped. And said that these are the candidate who are not selected. By gods grace. My number was not in there.
Total around 110 selected for IBM.
At that time I felt like I''m in cloud9 and I wanted to be blast with joy. I congrats my friends who also got selected.
It was the happiest day in my life ever.
Thanks to almighty.
After trying almost 6 month in almost every company, everywhere rejected, but there is a good thing for everything happened.
Best of luck all of you. Hope this will help you. Thanks for reading.
