CA Technologies Interview Process


I applied at CA Technologies for the post of Senior Software Engineer via a staffing agency. The hiring process at CA Technologies comprises of four rounds in total - 3 face to face rounds and one HR interview. The process took just one day which was really good for me.

Round 1- First Face to Face Interview
The first face to face interview was taken by a tech lead and was very basic in nature. All the basic concepts and fundamentals were asked in this round. It revolved mostly around OOP concepts and basic computer fundamentals. The interview was short and crisp. The questions were to the point and answerable.
Q1. What is Encapsulation?
Q2. What is an abstract class?

Round 2- Second Face to Face Interview
After I cleared the first interview, I was called for the second interview. This round was a bit difficult than the first round. This time, the major concentration was on the questions based on Java and J2ee. I was not able to answer every question, but I was able to pull it off somehow. Some of the questions asked:
Q1. Differentiate between session bean and entity bean.
Q2. Define an applet and define an applet container.
Q3. Difference between swing and awt.

Round 3- Third Face to Face Interview
The third face to face round was my cup of tea. It was based on Algorithms and data structures which is my strong area. This round was a bit longer than the previous two and the interviewer was definitely full of knowledge about everything. It was an amazing experience. Some of the questions that were asked are:
Q1. Difference between stack and queue data structure.
Q2. What is binary search tree?
Q3. Write a java program to print Fibonacci series.

Round 4 - HR Interview
After three interviews, finally it was the turn of the HR interview. But it was not at all about just the usual HR stuff. In fact, the round started with discussion regarding the projects that I had done. After that, the questions turned towards myself and my resume including my likes and interests and all. After all the formal questions, the offer was made and negotiations were done.

How to crack (get into) CA Technologies Interview


Let us begin with the very beginning. Like I said above as well, prepare well on the OOP concepts for the first round. Make sure you at least know the basic fundamentals. The complex questions are unlikely to be asked. But do expect one such question. However, not more than that.

For the second round, you must be thorough with Java and J2EE. By that, I am not implying you to dig to deeper depths. Just go through the application and basic concepts. If you know that, you will be able to answer every question (almost every).

For the third round, you should be strong in Algorithms and data structures. I have mentioned some basic questions above but other than that, also expect mathematics based Algorithms problems. This round, in comparison is the toughest.

The last round is the HR interview where your resume and your projects will be discussed along with the basic HR questions. You can negotiate the offer made to you after the HR interview. It is possible and I did it to get an expected salary. All the best.
