    C++ Gateway Developer, Pune, India Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Interview Details

    I applied on the company website.
    Got a mail stating they wanted a telephonic interview.
    Its a code sharing tool by hackerrank ,”codepair”.
    Where both you and interviewer share screen and you can type the code whatever he asks for
    Interviewer showed up 40 min late and I was about to leave the site, when my phone rang.

    Started with basics tell me about your current job, kind of work etc

    que 1.
    rate yourself in c++ on a scale of 10.
    I rated 6 and said its complex and hard to master

    questions on c++,
    pointer and references , initializer list, static , const ( variables , function etc), copy constructor, assignment operator
    performed averagely in those questions

    good question:
    const int p = 10;
    change that value at p by hook or by crook.

    gave a wrong answer saying,
    int * test = &p;
    test = 50 ;
    // although this can be done by access memory adresses dirctly using strings and some magic

    programming questions-
    you are given an int e.g. 10 represented in binary as 1010 flip the bits (2s complement) to 0101.

    first i tried using the not operator dirctly then realized that the total number of bits required is the to be considered here.

    coded solution using bool bit[32] and loops , he said he can see what you are doing, and expected a efficient solution.

    I was mostly impressed by thier devlopment enviroment they use vi , emacs and linux in development ( which i always wanted to in my job ) none of the MS garbage, that impressed me but sadly i couldn’t impress them.
