Infosys Limited Interview Experience - Referral Drive at NIEC, Delhi on 27 Nov, 2014
First of all I want to thank those people who had shared there "Infosys interview experience" with us, as it helps a lot in preparation. So I'm also gonna give it back to others.
My Online Test was on October 25th, 2014; Test Centre - Northern India Engineering College, Delhi.
The duration of the Exam will be approximately 95 minutes, and will comprise,
(a) Arithmetic Reasoning and Analytical Thinking.
(b) Mathematical Critical Thinking and Logical Reasoning.
(c) Verbal Ability Test.
Important topics in respect to the exam- Syllogisms, Allegations and Mixtures, Speed and Distance, Time and Work, Problem on Age and Train, Permutation and Combination, Assertion and Reason, Data sufficiency, 1 question on Probability and 1 question from Cryptarithmetic (normal level).
In verbal ability test- Two paragraph based question set (5 to 6 questions in each set). One paragraph is of normal size and second one is big. Many of you wouldn't able to read I completely. So please don't read the entire paragraph. just first read the question the find the answer (I'm sure, it will work). Rest topics which came where- Paragraph Formation, Spotting Errors, Fill in the blanks.
After the exam- I was sure that I have given my best and interview call will definitely come. And the Result came as expected.
Interview Email was sent to only those candidates who had cleared online test process. Rest of the student got a "regret mail" 2 or 3 days later.
My Interview Process: October 27th, 2014 at 08:30 AM (Morning shift).
Around 600 people were gathered in auditorium and interview process got started at 9:20 am. First, the Infosys placement volunteer started calling out name according to some unknown order (as on asking later they told me it is confidential). I was little bit tensed and unexpectedly I was the fourth person to give interview :p
After waiting for 1hr 15min my turn came. My heart beat goes louder and louder. I took a long breath and entered the cabin.
Me- May I come in sir !! ( He was reading my Resume )
Sir- Yes, Mr. Negi, come.
(I come inside and sat over chair)
Me- Thank you sir. (with a smile**)
Sir- So Pradeep, what you're doing now days?
(I thought that he will ask me about myself :p :p)
Me- Told whatever I was doing recently.
Sir- Ohk good. So you are from Instrumentation background (Non-CS/IT). Do you have any knowledge of programming? have you studied it your academic curriculum?
Sir- What type of new technologies are coming in instrumentation field?
Sir- Can you connect instrumentation field with computers? How?
Sir- Any part of your field where you think new inventions and work to be done? or you want to improve?
Sir- Ok good. Now come to your co-curriculum activities. Here in your resume you have mentioned many things. Have you ever organised any function or event?
Me- Told and described everything, whatever I had done in my past. (My plus point ;-) )
Sir- Sounds good. What feedback you got after the event you had organised? What thing you want to improve for next time?
Sir- Ok, Pradeep. Nice to talk to you. We will shortly respond over your candidature. Hope to see you with us. Any question you want to ask?
Me- Yes, sir (I know that they will surely offer me to ask a question and I was prepared for that. This question strike in my mind when I was waiting for my interview turn to come :p )
Me- Sir, during Recession period why Infosys fired their employees from jobs? (give a big smile :-D)
Sir- (almost laughed :p :p) Who told you this?
Me- Sir, in news and media in 2009. Around 40000+ employees lose their jobs. So why this things happened?
Sir- Ok, (in explaining mood) consider in your class there are 100 students. If 2% students not scored up-to the mark, they are not promoted to the next semester, similarly is in Infosys.
Me- Ohk. sir got it. (with a smile :-P)
Sir- Any more questions?
Me- No. sir !! thank you :)
Sir- Welcome Pradeep. Good Luck !
