    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hyderābād
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hyderābād
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard.

    Interview Details

    I attended HP off campus in Hyderabad.

    First round was written test. This is a bit difficult than the following rounds. It contains 3 sections.
    1. Aptitude(maths and logical) - 10 questions
    2. English - 10 questions
    3. Technical (C,C++,SQL) - 35 questions

    For the written test follow any book for aptitude and English. As for technical focus more on C, C++ and SQL . Practice topics like bitwise operators and bit shifting. For C++ don't leave anything follow any book( I forgot to work out templates and there were questions on this) and basic SQL queries.

    Now luckily I passed the written test and the next round was technical interview. He asked me questions on my project and some basic questions on java and the skills I put on my resume. After 1 hour I was pushed to next round.

    HR is the final round and they will ask questions on relocation and verify your marks and basic questions on personality. They are very friendly but try to keep the conversation as professional as possible.
