Position : Software Development Engineer

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.

Thanks Neelam for sharing the details of your interview.

Tough River Crossing Riddle

This one is a bit of tricky river crossing puzzle than you might have solved till now. We have a whole family out on a picnic on one side of the river. The family includes Mother and Father, two sons, two daughters, a maid and a dog. The bridge broke down and all they have is a boat that can take them towards the other side of the river. But there is a condition with the boat. It can hold just two persons at one time (count the dog as one person).

No it does not limit to that and there are other complications. The dog can’t be left without the maid or it will bite the family members. The father can’t be left with daughters without the mother and in the same manner, the mother can’t be left alone with the sons without the father. Also an adult is needed to drive the boat and it can’t drive by itself.

How will all of them reach the other side of the river?
