    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Philips (Bengaluru) in June 2015.

    Interview

    There were 2 rounds: 1 Technical round and 1 HR round
    For the technical round, I was interviewed by the architect. He asked me to explain about my previous projects. Questions were around that to assess how much I really understood what was done and why it was done the way it was done. This went on for about 20 mins.
    After this round, I was given a form to fill and then I waited for the HR round
    HR round was with the hiring manager and a HR person. Questions ranged from how much is your expected salary, is it negotiable, how have you handled mangerial challenges in the past, how would you handle conflicting task directions from architect and manager etc,,,,
     After this, I was told that I was offered. The official offer took about a month to be processed.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you handle conflicting task directions from an architect and your manager. Exaple being: if you have committed for a task which is assigned by your manager which you have agreed to complete in 5 days and your architect comes and tells you to pick up a task which takes about a day and is technically challenging but is not planned into your schedule   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Philips (Bengaluru).

    Interview

    Interview Process took 2 days. HR from Philips scheduled my interview. Called me on a weekday.

    On Day 1 interviewed by:
    Technical Architect
    Senior Technical Assistant

    Once these rounds were done, called me next day, again a working day, which included:
    Managerial Round
    HR Round for Negotiations.

    Manager was very insecure, thought that if offered I might not join them.

    HR sent a offer letter, I must say with very good compensation, but recalled back saying approval needed from Manager.

    After a month long follow up got to know, Manager was not sure if I offered I will join or not.
    After my confirmation that I will join, a week after HR called to say that they can't offer me as the project was closed.

    Though I kept on receiving mail from the same HR for the position.

    I have never seen so insecure managers, who are not confident about their own organisation.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Philips (Bengaluru) in November 2011.

    Interview

    I had an overall good interview experience. The bad part though was that I had to wait for 5 hours for my turn for the interview. They asked me in the mail to come around 8.00 am. I reach arnd 7.45, and reported myself available. Since I made some friends there, I spent time speaking with them. So I actually dint feel the time pass by. I was called at arnd 1 for the first round

    1st Round
    He was first started by asking to explain about me. Then he asked some basic questions on asp.net, C# like page life cycle, view state, sessions. Then he went into specifics of page life cycle like what exactly does page_init do, what happens during a postback, then how to you dynamically add a control to the asp.net page. Once he knew I had good understanding of asp.net, he went into OOPS and Design Pattern concepts.
    Questions asked
    - Diff bw Interface and abstract class
    - Polymorphism
    - He gave me list of classes (A, B deriving from A, C deriving from B, etc). He wanted to know how the constructor gets called if a instance of C is created. Then a few questions on virtual/overridden function concepts
    - Signing of assemblies - practical qs on this
    - He gave me a problem on design (cyclic dependency of dlls ) - and asked me to solve it.
    - Factory pattern with example
    - Singleton pattern with code

    2nd Round
    this round was much tougher. Here I was mostly asked design related questions. He would put down a design a problem, I would have to give the best possible design to overcome the problem. He asked me 3 different problem, I thought I could answer every one of them satisfactorily. Once that was done he asked me process related qs like, how would I actually go onto put in the design once the requirement comes - what are the steps involved between requirements to actual design code.

    3rd round was more process oriented qs and less technical. Mostly they were assessing my attitude, and my fitment to the company and role.
    4th was HR

    I was told I was selected, and I was sent the offer letter the very next day morning.

    My advice to people would be to know your basics well, brush up your design skills (Design patterns and OOPS) - knowing theory alone will not help here, they will ask you to apply the design principles on a practical problem.

    Interview Questions

    • A cyclic dependency problem - A.dll needs to refer B.dll and B.dll want to use A.dll. So there is a cyclic dependency. How would you solve this problem using a good design. (constraint - Dont move the core logic of A.dll or B.dll out to a 3rd dll)   2 Answers
