    Interview Details

    Aptitude test, two interview rounds
    It was a good experience. Most of the Interviewers were from IT team but not HR team.
    They told that they want people who are ready to learn but they ended up taking only those people who already knew all the stuff for their job profile.

    Interview Questions

      1) if you get this job
      2) if you don't get this job
