Flipkart Interview Process


I applied for the position of Software Development Engineer from my university and the process took one day. I can't say if you are applying via other sources; the process may take more days. Then, I was interviewed at Flipkart. There are three face to face interviews at Flipkart and I was selected through an online test that happens before everything. After that, the offer was made.

Round 1 - Online Test
Since, I applied from my university, I sat on the campus placement drive at my college. To select the candidates, there was an online test. The test was multiple choice questions based and the questions were basic to average level. It was easy overall.

Round 2 - Face to Face Interview Round
This round is just to know about you and your concentrations. They will ask about your strong points. Some questions will be asked which were very basic in nature and related to programming only. Some aptitude questions were also asked.

Round 3 - Technical Interview Round
In the previous round, I got comfortable with the Flipkart Staff. They are really nice people. In this round as well, I did not feel any pressure over me. The questions were easy and based on algorithm majorly. One of the question:
Q. What is the tracking algorithm of the nearest location to some friends that are located in a grid region?

Round 4 - Second Technical Interview Round
This round was relatively tougher but not tough enough if you have prepared. Again problems related Algorithms were asked and also some questions based on DS. Some questions:
Q1. How to find 3rd element from end in a linked list in one pass?
Q2. How to reverse String in Java?
Q3. Write a Java program to sort an array using Bubble Sort algorithm.

After the fourth round, the offer was made. You will be asked some basic details about yourself and all the HR related questions. You can make your negotiations here. The people are really nice and thus don't think much.

How to crack (Get Into) Flipkart Interview


Make your base strong. This is what I keep advising all the candidates or students. If your base is strong you won't find difficulty in cracking the interviews across various companies including Flipkart.

The online test is pretty easy and you simply can't expect easier than this. If you can't go through it, you need to study again. The technical interviews are easy to crack. If you compare the interviews with companies like Amazon, Infosys etc. it is really easy.

Make sure you revise all the Algorithms thoroughly and you should be good in data structures. I don't think there is any reason you will not get through the interview process if you know these two things thoroughly.

Wait for the offer and negotiate only when the offer is made to you. I know some people who talk regarding it in the interview rounds. Avoid that.

All the best to the candidates.

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.
