Kofax Interview Process
I applied at Kofax for the post of Software Engineer through my university. I was interviewed at Kofax in 2014 and the entire process took a day. There was a written test, a technical interview and a HR interview in the interview process at Kofax.
Round 1 - Written Test
The written test comprised of technical questions, aptitude questions and English language based questions. The technical questions were pretty basic and require only a brief studying. The aptitude questions were time taking and the language questions were easy. The test was completed by me within the given time. Many students were excluded from going to the technical interview.
Round 2 - Technical Interview
I was one of those who got selected for the technical round. First of all, the resume was checked by the interviewers. There were two interviewers. After a brief reading of the resume, they were already impressed. So the interview began with the projects that I had mentioned in the resume. Since they were authentic, I was able to reply to every questions. They also asked me about the problems that I faced while doing the projects. After that a few C++ based questions were asked too. Nothing was unexpected and the difficulty level was easy.
Q1. Differentiate between C and C++.
Q2. What are linkages? Tell the types of linkages.
Round 3 - HR Interview
My resume was read even in this round. And even the HR was impressed. I felt glad that I was serious in my college. Then, I was asked about myself a few questions. I was asked why I was interested in working for their company. I was asked my goals and if this was the profession I would spend my entire life confined in or I had other dreams as well. This was a different questions but I was able to answer something.
After this interview, I was given the offer and since it was a campus placement, there was no room for negotiations.
How to crack Kofax Interview
One thing that I learnt during the interview at Kofax was that if you have a nice resume, they will probably like you and keep you. By nice resume I mean, you should have some good projects mentioned there which tells that you have been serious for y our career. You will feel that if they are impressed with your resume, they will certainly ease down upon you and moreover, most of the questions will then be based on those projects which will be easy to answer since you did them yourself.
Other than that, a few C++ based questions were asked too. The level was basic and nothing out of the box was asked. They know you are fresher and they treat you like that which is the best part about their hiring process.
No negotiations are possible if you are on a campus placement. I don't know otherwise. All the best for your interviews.
