    Got contacted by the HR . Was told that they were looking for Linux kernel developers.
    Total 3 telephonic technical rounds, 1 online coding test and 1 hr round.
    first round: Two people interviewed me.Questions were ok.But the interviewers were very arrogant and rude.
    Second round: This time a senior guy interviewed me and the experience was good.
                               Questions on linked list, spinlocks, semaphores, character subsystem in kernel
    Third round: Some puzzles and c related questions.
    Online coding test: total 3 questions, solved two and did not attempt the third, it was getting way too boring now :)

    Hr Round: Normal Hr questions.

    After the offer arrived, I was not sure about it.The offer was way below my expectations and since I had other better offers, declined it.
    Hr seemed to be a liitle suspicious to me.Once I told her that I had other offers, She started to ask for details which I found were unnecessary.Overall not sucha good experience.
