Temenos Interview Process


I applied at Temenos for the post of Software Engineer through a staffing agency. I was interviewed at Temenos in 2012 and the process took two weeks. There were four rounds in the hiring process at Temenos which I shall explain below.

Round 1 - Telephonic Screening
This screening was done over a call from Geneva, Switzerland. The call was about explaining the job description and Roles and Responsibilities of the requirement. I was asked basic questions about myself and asked if I will be able to stand up to the expectations they have from their future employee. Nothing else was asked.

Round 2 - Written Test
After the screening, I got a call from the HR and I was called at their office in Bangalore for a written test. This test was technical in nature. Two hours were provided to complete the test. The test was moderately difficult but time taking. Anyhow, I was able to complete the test in the given time but it was not an easy job.

Round 3 - Technical Interview
After I cleared the written test, I had to take a face to face interview with the Head of the Delivery Projects from Geneva. The interview lasted for about 45 minutes. The interviewer was quite friendly and polite. The questions that were asked in this round were mostly based on Java/J2EE. Some of the questions are as follows:
Q1. What is the role of JVM in Garbage Collection?
Q2. What is byte code in Java?
Q3. Questions based on XMLs.
After the technical questions, there were some questions regarding the behavior under a given situation. He was trying to assess me on how I would behave under continuous pressure or stress. One of the question that I can remember:
Q1. If you are following Agile-Scrum methodology and you have been given a chance to implement a new feature on your product which being asked by your client. On eighth day, you realize that you can't deliver the product within 10 days, then how will you handle the situation in front of your client.

Round 4 - HR Interview
Nothing much was asked in the HR round as all such questions were already asked in the previous round only. This round was basically meant for the negotiations overt the salary. Yes it was negotiable and I was able to negotiate to my preference. Other than that, they wanted to know how soon I could join if I was hired by them.


How to crack Temenos Interview


Interview process at Temenos was one of the most streamlined I have ever faced. The staff including the HR were very informative. They kept me informed of the proceedings and guided me as well. There was no hassle involved. I was informed well before my interviews.

This is very helpful during the interview process for the interviewees. Then, talking about the details, you need not prepare anything for the screening. You resume will speak for you and you will be briefed about the company and position only.

The technical written test is somewhat easy but not too easy. You must be prepared to solve codes and problems quickly or you won't be able to complete it within the given time.

About the technical interview, like I have said already, prepare well on Java and J2EE if you want to crack it. The interviewer will be extremely knowledge-full and thus you must be able to cast an impression proving your intellectuality.

Other than that, you don't have to worry about the HR round. It's only for the negotiations. If you are good at negotiating, and you have cast a good impression so far, you will be able to grab your desired package.

Difficult Brain Twister

A strange tradition is followed in an orthodox and undeveloped village. The chief of the village collects taxes from all the males of the village yearly. But it is the method of taking taxes that is interesting.

The taxes paid in the form of grains and every male should pay equal pounds corresponding to his age. In simpler terms, a man aged 10 years will have to pay 10 pounds of grains and a 20 years old will be paying 20 pounds of grain.

The chief stands on a riser containing 7 different weights next to a large 2 pan scale. As per the interesting custom, the chief can only weigh using three of the seven weights.

In such a scenario, can you calculate what must be the weights of the seven weights each and who is the oldest man the chief can measure using those weights?
