    4 rounds were there, Online, Technical, GD and HR round.
    In Online, it was fully aptitude and C related questions.
    In technical, it was related to java and oops concept and also searching/sorting questions
    GD was ok, HR round discussion was also ok

    Technical Operations Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at IBM.

    Interview Details

    1. Online Aptitute round
    2. Personal communication round
    3. Technical interview/Management interview

    1. in the first round, only question on quantitative aptitude were asked, and that too, only from the topics, percentage and unitary method. No verbal or logical questions. They were quite easy.

    2. Second round was like a normal HR round. They asked me common HR questions. They just want people with good communication skills. So how you are speaking matters much more than what you are speaking. Just be confident and you are in. (Some people were asked to explain their projects. But again, they just want to examine your communication skills).

    3. I dont know why they called it a 'technical interview'. No technical questions were asked from me. The interviewer just asked me about my family. That's it. Although i came to know that the other interviewer was asking a few technical questions (cloud computing). But then again, as they mentioned it very clearly, they do only want people with good communication skills; technical skills are secondry (or tertiary according to me :p).

    Hiring and interview process is not complicated. First round-written test, second round-HR round and third round-operational round. According to me operational round the toughest one because interviewer usually analyze the in and outs of applicant at a deeper level.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Interview Details

    Hiring Process was divided into 3 steps:-
    1. first was aptitude online exam. It was based aptitude MCQ. I would say the difficulty was 6 out of 10. But, shortlisting depends on percentile not on percentage.
    2. aptitude round was followed with a English online exam. It was relatively harder than aptitude, many people were shortlisted in this round(more than I expected).
    3. Final round was the F2F interview. It was mostly based on C/C++ questions(i would say pretty easy) along with some questions from real world scenarios and what would you do if you are in such a situation. And remember to go through your projects that you have done in past(they will finish on this).

    Reasons for Declining

    They were not so clear on bond and package during placement procedure. After couple of months of waiting, I got an offer letter with 1 year bond/1Lac INR and a package of 2.9Lacs/annum. Which was clearly less that what they specified.
