Organization : BMC Software
Position : Senior Product Developer
BMC Software Interview Process
I applied at BMC Software for the post of Senior Product Developer through an employee referral. I was then interviewed at BMC Software. The hiring process at Dassault Systemes have four rounds in total - Telephonic Screening, Two Technical On-Site Interviews and one HR Interview. The entire process took just three days.
Round 1 - Telephonic Screening
The telephonic screening was not difficult for me. Very basic algorithms were asked from me and many questions based on Core Java were asked. I felt that the interview was just to check if the candidate is authentic or not. Other than that, a few questions about my previous job and company were asked too. Overall, the interview was good.
Round 2 - First Technical Interview
After I was cleared from Telephonic Screening, I was called by the HR department to schedule the on-site interview. This first technical interview was totally based on core java. You need to have in depth knowledge of it if you want to clear this round. Questions based on threading and collections were asked. The interview did not last quite long and the questions were moderately difficult.
Round 3 - Second Technical Interview
This round was a bit more difficult than the previous one although the concentration over the topics was same as that of the previous. Some of the problems given to me in this round:
Q1. Implement a small design: Chess Simulator, stack, Queue and defend your design.
Q2. Questions based on pretty complex algorithms.
I was thinking that the previous round was not difficult but this one surely was. This round will also act as a mirror to your experience and knowledge. Be prepared well for it.
Round 4 - HR Interview
There were no idiotic questions and I was straight away asked about my past experiences and the projects that I have worked upon. I was pretty confident in this round at least and the HR was impressed by my achievements and my experience. There was no need of negotiating the offer as the salary offered was more than expected.
How to crack BMC Software Interview
The interview process at BMC Software is pretty professional. From the beginning till you get over with the HR interview, they are constantly going to judge you in some way or the other. While, the telephonic round may be just sort of a quality check of the candidate, the technical interviews will take you further higher into the difficulty level and depth of things.
The only way you can survive is if you have a good experience and you have worked on some decent projects that gave you enough knowledge about various aspects. Your java knowledge should really be good. That is their basic need from the candidate. If you are not good, they don't want you. So, make sure to just go through with it before your interview.
Rest, your experience shall speak up in the interviews. I can only wish you all good luck.
