Hitachi Data Systems Interview Process


I applied at Hitachi Data Systems for the post of Senior Software Engineer through an employee referral. The hiring process at Hitachi Data Systems included two telephonic interviews and five on site interviews.

Round 1 - Two Telephonic Interviews
I had two phone screenings or interviews. The first interview was based on the storage concept, types of storage, management of storage, protocols including iSCSI and Fiber Channel, LUN masking and unmasking. The questions asked were good and moderately difficult. Usually, you expect and easy phone screening but it was not.

The second interview was dedicated towards the understanding of architecture and distributed system. It also included the concept of making the stack scalable. Again, the screening was more difficult than expected. You should be a good one to be selected for the on-site interviews. They are only looking for professionals. If you are not able to perform, you will be rejected straightaway without being called for the personal interviews.

Round 2 - Five Onsite Interviews
I don't have much to write about them separately and so I decided to collaborate all the things and tell you about them together. First of all, not all of these interviews are technical. You will face all sort of things from technical to human resources based to behavioral questions. I will list a few questions for you:
Q1. Implement a bipartite graph in C++.
Q2. How will you convince a small business customer to be on a private cloud if he is having 100 percent security and multitenancy while working on a public cloud?
Q3. What problems did you face in the xyz project that you did in your previous company?

Other than that, there were many technical questions based on the language you prefer. Even codes were given to write. The process was long and tiring for me. But the people are quite professional and are looking for another one. If they like you, you will get an offer soon. Also, you can negotiate the offer but I think they will offer you pretty much what you must have expected or even more and thus there will be no need to negotiate.


CHow to crack (get into) Hitachi Interview


Like I have told you above as well, they want only professional people in their company. So first of all, don't behave or answer in an amateur way. Be confident of the things you speak. If you are not confident with your answer, try the nearest approach. Avoid sitting blankly or blabbering anything irrespective of the question asked.

Other than that, if you are applying for the senior position, you must be very clear of all the required fundamentals and concepts. Also, be prepared to answer the questions based on your projects that you did back in your previous company. They will want to know what you're good at and what your weak points are.

So, prepare well and attempt with full confidence and you will definitely crack the Hitachi Data Systems Interview.

Logic Problem Brain Teaser

The world is facing a serious viral infection. The government of various countries have issued every citizen two bottles. You as well have been given the same. Now one pill from each bottle is to be taken every day for a month to become immune to the virus. The problem is that if you take just one, or if you take two from the same bottle, you will die a painful death.

While using it, you hurriedly open the bottles and pour the tablets in your hand. Three tablets come down in your hand and you realize they look exactly the same and have same characteristics. You can’t throw away the pill as they are limited and you can’t put them back or you may put it wrong and may die someday.

Interview Marble Logic Puzzle

You are given a set of scales and 12 marbles. The scales are of the old balance variety. That is, a small dish hangs from each end of a rod that is balanced in the middle. The device enables you to conclude either that the contents of the dishes weigh the same or that the dish that falls lower has heavier contents than the other.
The 12 marbles appear to be identical. In fact, 11 of them are identical, and one is of a different weight. Your task is to identify the unusual marble and discard it. You are allowed to use the scales three times if you wish, but no more.

Note that the unusual marble may be heavier or lighter than the others. You are asked to both identify it and determine whether it is heavy or light.

Lateral Thinking Problem

Suppose there is a Christmas tree and four angels are sitting on it amidst the other ornaments. Two of them have black halos and two of them have white halos. No body among them can see above their head. Angel A is sitting on the top branch and can see angels B and C sitting below him. B can see C who is sitting in a branch lower than his. Angel D is at the base of the tree and can't be seen due to the branches in between. Also, he can't see anybody as well.
