Mindfire Solutions Interview Process

I applied online for the position of Software Engineer at Mindfire Solutions. A seemingly early reply from the company was received by me i.e. only a week after I applied and I was called for the interviews.

Round 1 - Written test
The written test was the longest I have ever attended. Most of the places, the test is either an hour or at most a couple of hours long. But here, it was three hours long and thus it was really tiring. The test was based on aptitude questions, language skills, IQ related problems and reasoning skills along with basic programming skills. The aptitude questions and the programming questions were the easiest. Language skills test may depend from person to person but IQ based questions were moderately difficult.

Round 2 - Technical Round
To my surprise, the technical round was even lengthier than the written test. It was a whopping four hours long and by the end of it I was literally exhausted. But let me tell you what happened in between. The questions asked were pretty long (most of them). It was based on the overall understanding of C, C++ and Java and their implementation. Beware of the fact that you will have to do the coding on a paper and thus you must be quite sound with the languages.
Q1. Convert the user's input digit into words like 13 = thirteen. Range is 0-99.
Q2. Differentiate between document ready and anonymous function in JavaScript.
Q3. Questions regarding C string handling and creating a relational model DBMS for specified requirement.

Round 3 - HR Interview
The fact that the previous rounds are so lengthy will have effect on this HR interview for sure. It happened with me. May be they have designed it that way. I was completely exhausted when this round started. The questions were basic twisted HR questions which you can browse through in any of the online site dedicated for the same. But it is your patience and confidence that is to be tested in this round. It was not as I had thought but I think I did a decent job as I was given the offer afterwards.

How to crack (get into) Mindfire Solutions Interview

The foremost thing if you are appearing in the Mindfire Solutions interview is that you must go with a lot of patience. That is the thing that will be helping you the most. If you are new to interviews, you need it more. The rounds are pretty long and exhausting.

For the written test, you need not prepare if you have a fair aptitude skills. It was nothing too difficult to solve and you can easily complete the test in the given time. The problem is the technical round. The coding questions will be lengthy but the other questions are from the basic area so not to be worried about.

The HR questions were basic but since you have spent much time already in the interview rounds before, you might be losing that confidence you had in the beginning of the day. So watch out. Anyways, my best wishes for all the candidates.

Thanks Anmol for sharing the details of your interview.

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.

Maths Magic Riddle

I can prove why 1 = 2

Step1. Lets say y = x
Step2. Multiply through by x xy = x2
Step3. Subtract y2 from each side xy - y2 = x2 - y2
Step4. Factor each side y(x-y) = (x+y)(x-y)
Step5. Divide both sides by (x-y) y = x+y
Step6. Divide both sides by y y/y = x/y + y/y
Step7. And so... 1 = x/y + 1
Step8. Since x=y, x/y = 1 1 = 1 + 1
Step9. And so... 1 = 2

How is this possible ?
