    Interview

    Hi I attended Novell Interview on april, 2014. I had 6 rounds in total.

    All the rounds were simple. They ask only the very basic questions
    1. Aptitude, verbal, technical (system concepts and coding snippets), Essay on open source was not required. [details about the questions are mentioned below]
    2. Programming interview.
    3. System concepts and testing concepts [how will u test a pen, tell us some test cases in ur project]
    4. Interview with Manager [other than technical questions]
    Since everybody was busy, my interview was moved to next day.
    5. Interview with Senior Manager [other than technical questions] - she was very kind.
    6. Interview with HR [She discussed about the company, benifts etc.]

    Once you clear the first 2 rounds, you are almost selected.

    Salary range 6 - 7 L for freshers. Value varies in between for candidates from PSG, NIT and others.

    out of station candidates, if selected will get accomodation in a business class hotel for 15 days. They welcome you with big flower boquets etc.

    This is for a full time employee through employee referal without any consultancies, contract, contigencies etc.

    Novell is a very peaceful place to settle. Compared to many companies in bangalore, it has a very good work life balance. Sat and sun off. Good benefits. No work pressure. No timings. My managers are really kind.

    Below are the questions i noted down after each rounds. All the best. :)
