INFOSYS Interview Experience - Bhubaneswar, October 16 & 17, 2014
I am so excited to share my experience before you all. Hope this will help you a lot as I been helped by IndiaBix. Okay I start with the first day of Infosys Campus Drive.
It was a pool campus on Bhubaneswar where around 500 students were there for this drive. When I entered the college I was so nervous and bit excited.
There was a Pre Placement Talk (PPT) of around 1 hour. They gave such a wonderful view of life at INFOSYS that anyone's mind can be diverted . They showed us this video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQ5Zn8WFavE
After that there was a written round .
1st section was reasoning (25 minutes 15 questions).
2nd section was Aptitude (35 minutes 10 questions).
And 3rd section was English (35 minutes 40 questions).
==>1st section was very easy but in DI (6 questions #Data Interpretation) you have to be very good in it or else make other 10 questions correct. In my case other 10 were very easy I did almost all correct except that DI part(I am not good in it).
==>In syllogism only two lined questions were there which was really easy and you need to worry for that.
==>In 2nd Aptitude part, I didn't believed that the questions were very normal std type. It was not tough, trust me aptitude of Infosys.....(what I believe...)!
==>3rd part in english...I think for me it was the toughest. In Error finding what I practiced was totally worthless. Actually all questions were so lengthy that time factor was a major problem. So practice errors from GMAT, it will be really helpful.
==>Guys to get into INFOSYS your english part must be good. This is what I felt over that period of time. So just practice practice...and practice for english.
==> You don't need to be very brilliant in other two. Just be positive and cool. This helps a lot . :-)
OKAY....!!!!! The exam was over now and I was waiting for the result. After 7 hours later the result published on website...and around 200 cleared the 1st round out of 600. And I was one of them. It seemed that my dream is going to be fulfilled.
But we informed too late so we had only few hours to prepare for the interview. Anyhow I managed to prepare it...but didnt slept that night. And on morning 7 am I had to go for the interview.
So now I was ready for the interview.
Me:Good Morning sir....
HR: Good morning ...Please take your seat.
Me: Thank you sir...
HR: Ravish...!!! I have gone through your resume and I know basic details about you , So I directly start with technical part.
me: Sure sir!!!!
HR: What's your fav sub?
HR: Apart from that?
me: I said J2SE(Java Standard edition).
HR: Okay I am giving you some o/p questions . Can you do this?
Me: Why not sir...definitely..It was related to Macro and I interpreted the question differently and I told the wrong output.
HR: Are you sure this is the answer?
Me: Yes sir..(hesitatingly).
But HR explained that you interpreted it wrong the correct ans is this.
Me: Oh yeah yeah...Sorry sir.
Hr: Okay tell me about this o/p?
Me: It was related to one line arithmetic operation.
eg: printf("%d",a++ - ++b*c++);
I told the answer but unfortunately again it was wrong but I explained my answer that sir it depends upon the compiler. If you run on GCC or TCC or DEV C or BCC or whatever it's o/p will vary from compiler to compiler. I thought I was able to convince him.
HR: Gave me other o/p question ....Okay now tell me about this o/p?
Me: Gave correct answer
HR: Okay tell what is Byte code and how it is OS independent?
ME: Explained very well...Told the definition of byte code in java and I said if you compile that java file by javac filename.java then filename.class will be generated then take that .class file in any OS may be Macintosh, Solaris, Linux or any then the O/p will be always the same irrespective of the OS variation but conditioned that JDK must be installed in that OS. I think he was impressed with my last answer.
HR: Have you taken your lunch?
Me: No sir not yet!!
HR: Okay then have it.
Me: Yes sir sure I will.
HR: Any questions you want to ask?
Me: Yes sir...Actually I wanted to know how is the life at Infosys?
HR: Its fine and working culture is also good and you must have seen in the PPT right?
Me: Yes sir..I have seen it.
Hr: Anything more?
Me: NO sir...Thank you!
SHOOK HAND tightly and shown my confidence! with eye contact.
On that night results were to be announced but it failed. So on next morning 7 am I checked the site....AND...I GOT SELeCTED!!!! Only 50 were selected out of 200 and again I was one of them. :-).
Me with my other 4 roomies got selected for the same. One just couldn't qualified for interview but clears written round. 5 out 6 were selected from my room. I was so happy!
HOPE THIS MUST HELP YOU ALL. THIS "SITE" AND "HR" IS JUST GOD FOR ME....Thankyou for reading!!!!! have a good luck.
