    Associate Software Engineer Interview

    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at HARMAN (New York, NY (US)) in June 2019.

    Interview

    I got a call for interview through eLitmus. The 1st round was a written mcq test in eLitmus office in HSR layout Bangalore. I got shortlisted from that written test, and was told to go to Harman office for further rounds. The 1st f2f interview was a technical round. They briefly asked me to explain about my projects and also told to write down the code snippets. The next f2f round was also completely technical which consisted of 2 panel members. They asked full in depth about C, C++ and OS concepts and also told me to write program snippets for almost everything being asked. It lasted for almost 45min to an hour. I got rejected in that round.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at HARMAN.

    Interview

    1) Career fair - short chat interview : I talked with them during career fair. They are basically the lead engineering guy and the hr people so i were briefly interviewed during the chat. They ask for your academic transcript and go through your resume. Actually if you have time they will do in person interview on the next day but i don't have time so i was briefly interviewed during the career fair.

    2) Phone interview - with a senior java architect. Advance java concepts asked.

    3) Online test - difficult online test about java. Expect detail java multi-threading questions.

    Then they call me and decide that even though the steps are not that rigorous, they feel confident about my ability and give me the offer.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate because i think it's a fair salary for a new grad. You may want to negotiate if you want more.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at HARMAN (Farmington Hills, MI (US)) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online.

    I was contacted after 2-3 weeks. I spoke with the HR and there was silence for 2 weeks (no emails till this point . hence there was no proof besides my call log regarding any communication).
    After a while, I spoke with the HR for the second time and scheduled a call with the Hiring Manager. The Hiring Manager was cool and spoke to me and told me he wanted to bring me in for an interview. I worked with the HR regarding logistics of my onsite visit.

    The interview was a breeze. I was contacted 2-3 days after my interview with the news that everyone wanted to have me as a part of the team. The whole process took 2-3 months!

    Interview Questions

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at HARMAN (New York, NY (US)) in May 2019.

    Interview

    I believe everyone have their priorities. I agree for the choices. But not blunders.
    I was called for Core Java profile. Said only looking for spring and hibernate candidates.
    Asked few questions like steps involved to setup jdbc, Java memory model, garbage collections.
    I explained the way I can. Like how memory is divided such as stack, heap, method area etc, serial gc, parallel gc, cms, g1 etc.,
    They said my review is looking high standards candidates. Don't know what that mean. Definitely we can't judge just by asking 4 questions.
