    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sokrati in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through there website then after some 20 days the HR called me and asked me when can I join and told me that there will be an telephonic interview on the next day.
    After that I was asked to give one more interview then they sent an reject email.

    Interview Questions

    • They were pretty basic, all question were based on array or strings in the first interview.
      The second interview was pretty much the same but the interviewer asked me to tell me the code.
      How can I tell code on phone, anyways I tried and made my thought process clear.
      This time the interviewer was trying hard to confuse me and asked repeatedly the same questions.
      Overall I think it was okay and I think the second interviewer didn't like my tone.
      Though I answered all his questions they rejected me.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The HR person told me a package and offered the same, did not negotiate. The offered hike was kind of same as the annual hike in my current company.

    Did not want to go to a new company for such low hike.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sokrati in January 2015.

    Interview

    College on-Campus process:
    Day 1:Online Aptitude-20 questions(technical 16 + 4 quant).Easy.Average guy good in C can get above 12.At the end of apti you could see your score and answers to the questions.After waitng till 5pm for the results(next rounds) our tpo said that sokrati's system crashed and we have to give apti again.
    they provided us same questions in google forms of whose answers we all knew(remember their previous test provided us answers).So everyone,i believe got 20/20.But luckily their system came back to life and our previous scores were considered.Thus they wasted an entire day.

    Day 2:Coding round:16/70(approx) were shortlisted.Two codes:1) first was something related to array and to test how well you can handle loops.2) Whether a binary tree is symmetric(mirror image)?We were not supposed to compile code but to just write it there on their editor and our entire session was recorded.They mainly wanted to see how you write a code and your thinking process.

    Day 3:Phone interview:The guy told me that he was keen to judge my problem solving ability.
    1) Asked me famous FizzBuzz question and told me to reduce conditions.
    2) In an array of only 1's and 0's how would you count no. of 1s and 0s without compairing and then modified it to array of 3s and 5s.
    3) Loop in a linked list.
    4) Tree:Told me to print a binary tree in zigzag manner level wise(basically Breadth first search in zigzag manner).Hint:use 2 datastructures(my answer: queue and stack) .
    I managed to answer almost all questions and he also seemed happy and satisfied but then I never received any further calls from their side.

    Day 4:One of my friend received 2nd call and questions related to Sorting and DBMS were asked.
    Day 5: Same friend received a skype call and he finally got selected.

    The entire process spanned a week.
