SAP Interview Process


I applied at SAP for the post of Associate Software Engineer through my university. The process took just one day and I was called for my interview at SAP. The hiring process had three rounds - one written, one technical and one HR interview.

Round 1 - Written Test
This written test was conducted by a third party. There were four different sections in this test:
Quats, Verbal and two Technical tests. The quants test was very easy and only the basic problems were given to solve. The verbal skills test was also easy as my English is good. First technical test was based on the data structures while the second technical test was based on Operating Systems and DBMS. The questions were based on the basic knowledge only.

Round 2 - Technical Round
The technical interview was a bit long round. First of all, I was asked many technical questions based on different concepts. I can't point out at one or another topic as the questions were random in nature. Some of the questions that were asked from me are:
Q1. Design a shopping application that can be utilized by the rural or uneducated people.
Q2. How will you sort N-sized data in memory with zero extra space?
Other than that, even a couple of HR questions were dropped in unexpectedly. As the manager was also present in the interview, he asked a few questions to determine how I will react under pressure. The round was not easy but also not extremely difficult.

Round 3 - HR Interview
In this round, fore mostly, my resume was picked up. Then the questions that followed were majorly based on the projects that I had done in college. I was expecting just a basic HR round but it just went out of my expectation bubbly. However, soon the questions moved to the usual stuff and that was a relief.


How to crack SAP Interview


If you are still reading, I must tell you that the interview at SAP is not an easy thing. You might feel quite good clearing the written exam which I think was easy and will include almost 70-80 percent of the candidates. But the real interview starts in the technical round. I won't say that the questions were too difficult but they were not easy either.

Also, I can't even direct you towards something particular as the questions were quite random and came out of everywhere. But yes, make sure you are thorough in at least data structures, DBMS and OS related concepts. Questions based on them will be asked frequently. The manager will try to put pressure on you as they also want to test how you will react under pressure and how you will handle situation in such times.

The HR interview was not quite what I had expected. There were questions related with my resume and even the projects I did back in college. Your interviewer will be having a good knowledge regarding everything and thus do not try to act smart.

Rest, just prepare well and give your best shot. My best wishes with all the appearing candidates.

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.
