Zensar Technologies Interview Experience - 22 October 2016 Jabalpur
Basically, one has to clear four rounds to get selected in Zensar Technologies.
1. Online test (25 aptitude + reasoning and 25 technical).
2. Group Discussion or Extempore.
3. Technical Interview.
4. HR interview.
It was an open campus drive and around 700 candidates were present at the auditorium. The first thing was the presentation, in which they gave details about the company, ctc and the job profile, etc. After that, we were sent for the online test.
The test consisted of 50 questions. It was divided into two sections, first section consisted of 25 questions of aptitude and logical reasoning which were of an easy and medium level and knowledge of R.S Aggarwal books is sufficient. The time was 30 minutes. Aptitude questions were based on topics like profit and loss, simple and compound interest, quite a few problems on time and distances (trains specifically) and time and work, age, etc and the logical reasoning section had questions on series, coding decoding, etc.
The other 25 questions were technical questions based on basic programming logics, java, object oriented technology, SQL, networking, etc and the time was 30 minutes. You could solve either of the sections first but cannot carry the timing of one section to the other one and also there was an option to go back to the questions so you could change your answer if you wanted.
There was no sectional cut off and you had to get 50% (25 out of 50 correct).
After about half an hour the results were declared and about 120 people were shortlisted for the next round and luckily I too made the cut.
Friends, do prepare well for this online test as mass elimination happens in this round.
Second round was the group discussion. All the students were divided into batches of 16-18 people. Although we were all expecting a group discussion, we were taken by surprise when the HR told us that it would be an extempore round. The HR made us stand one by one and told us to introduce ourselves (10th, 12th schooling, percentage, medium, engineering stream and CGPA) and then he gave us a topic on which we were supposed to speak for some time. The topics were basic like technology, social networking, transportation, etc.
Guys this round is there to judge you on your speaking skills and confidence so make sure that you speak with confidence and fluency and you will be fine. On average, around 7-8 people were selected from each batch and around 80 people in total for the technical interview, which was scheduled on the next day.
In the technical interview, the technical interviewer asked about my project and based on my project implementation asked me to write a JDBC code to fetch some data from database. He also asked some questions on Java as I mentioned that in my resume, and told me to write a code to explain four principles of object-oriented technology.
A few SQL queries were also asked (find second highest salary from a table) and SQL concepts like view, trigger, etc.
A few HR questions might also be asked so be ready for that (introduction, family background, etc).
In the technical interview, they ask questions from your resume and project so only mention things that you are good at and try to explain concepts simply without complicating them and if you don't know the answer to some question, decline politely. If you clear this round then there is a 95% chance that you will get selected.
The students who cleared the technical round were asked to go for the HR round. I was selected for the HR round. In this round they asked basic questions like introduction, why should I hire you, relocation flexibility, passport, etc and again, it's all about confidence and speaking skills. The ones who cleared all the rounds were told that the results would be announced a week later.
Results were announced and around 40 students were selected including me. At last,there is just one thing I would like to say, "Hard work never goes in vain".
So prepare well and work hard, you will definitely get selected. Hope to see you at Zensar :-)
