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.

Tricky Iq Question

In a jar, there are some orange candies and some strawberry candies. You pick up two candies at a time randomly. If the two candies are of same flavor, you throw them away and put a strawberry candy inside. If they are of opposite flavors, you throw them away and put an orange candy inside.

In such manner, you will be reducing the candies in the jar one at a time and will eventually be left with only one candy in the jar.

If you are told about the respective number of orange and strawberry candies at the outset, will it be feasible for you to predict the flavor of the final remaining candy ?

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.

If they are asked to guess the color of their own halo (they dont know that), who do you think will be able to deduce and speak up first with a right answer?
