Software Engineer Interview

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Intel Corporation.

Interview Details I have gone through Intel India interview process during placements in our college. There was CPI based shortlisting then 4 rounds of interviews were to be done. The first round of interview was based on C++/C/Java basics and other coding questions with some questions on project I have done. The next round was again a technical round in which they asked me solve puzzle, do some coding problems and some detailed discussion on research projects. The third round was more of a behavioral round in which we were given situations and we need to respond with what we would do in that situation. All others went through one more round, but I was taken 3 rounds and sent back. I was thinking that, they rejected me, finally when results were declared, I was selected :)

Interview Question – Coding some puzzles and behavioral round was unexpected   Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Intel Corporation in June 2013.

Interview Details I was selected for the interview based on employee referral. The first round was telephonic where the interviewer mostly asked about my background, work experience etc. He also asked me about basic concepts of C and C++ Programming languages. When he was convinced he said that I need to visit the Intel Bangalore office for a face-to-face interview which was about hours of duration.

Interview Question – There wasn't any unexpected question as such...Most of teh questions were based on the use of data structures.   Answer Question
