Software Engineer Interview

Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at S&P Capital IQ in August 2014.

Interview Details

Applied through campus placements. There were supposed to be 5 rounds. First Aptitude then Technical Aptitude and then 3 interviews. But in my case there was only one interview. The whole process got over in an hour. The first aptitude had a few questions on quantitative aptitude and logical reasoning; a section on programming related MCQs and another on database related questions. It seems quite difficult but surprisingly got through. The second test had 2 sections One programming related where we could answer using logic/pseudo code/actual code/algorithm and another with database queries. Even this was difficult. Infact the Interview was pretty chilled out. General Questions based on Linked lists, queries, indexers, trees,etc. they were more interested in the approach rather than actual knowledge. In all a pretty good experience

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at S&P Capital IQ in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Hiring Process:
    I got a call from Talent Acquisition Team.

    They give me an overview about the company & about my role & responsibilities

    Interview Process:

    It took around 5-6 weeks & I gone through 5 technical interviews , 4 telephonic & 1 was face to face.

    Telephonic round covers your basic Knowledge on your domain.Mine was for a Data Scientist,so they asked about Data Models & Extraction Techniques.Make sure to go through SQL.

    Most questions were from my domain.

    Face to Face was the most interesting & challenging one.They gave me a Complex Problem & asked me to design a Proof of Concept(POC) on it.
    It was a good healthy discussion on various real World Problems of Data Mining.The entire discussion was around an hour.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at S&P Capital IQ in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Written test consisting of 10 questions (reverse linked list,bits set in a byte,least common ancestor,some db and caching design). One coding test on the computer .Three face to face rounds . I think they have pretty much standard interview process.Interviewers come prepared with those questions and if you answer them correctly then you are done. I'm saying this because they were asking about different software development life cycles ,architectural patterns etc which most of the people don't use in their day to day work. This is irrespective of the experience. Would not suggest an experienced guy with 5+ years to attend . They don't have a big setup , so growth would be stagnant. Most of the people seem to be recent college grads.
