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.

Difficult Brain Twister

A strange tradition is followed in an orthodox and undeveloped village. The chief of the village collects taxes from all the males of the village yearly. But it is the method of taking taxes that is interesting.

The taxes paid in the form of grains and every male should pay equal pounds corresponding to his age. In simpler terms, a man aged 10 years will have to pay 10 pounds of grains and a 20 years old will be paying 20 pounds of grain.

The chief stands on a riser containing 7 different weights next to a large 2 pan scale. As per the interesting custom, the chief can only weigh using three of the seven weights.

In such a scenario, can you calculate what must be the weights of the seven weights each and who is the oldest man the chief can measure using those weights?

Popular Logical Brain Teaser

A couple had to take shelter in a hotel for they could not proceed their journey in the rain. Having nothing to do at all, they started playing cards. Suddenly there was a short circuit and the lights went off. The husband inverted the position of 15 cards in the deck (52 cards normal deck) and shuffled the deck.

Now he asked his wife to divide the deck into two different piles which may not be equal but both of them should have equal number of cards facing up. There was no source of light in the room and the wife was unable to see the cards.

For a certain amount of time, she thought and then divided the cards in two piles. To the husband’s astonishment, both of the piles had equal number of cards facing up.

How did she do it?
