Name: K.V.SURESH KUMAR
Company Name: MINDTREE LTD
Before sharing my interview experience, I would like to thank God, My Parents and especially My Friends who enhanced my strength, speech, ways to tackle this world and so on. Patience, Hardwork, Optimism and Confidence in You and in God are the major contibutors than your talents, etc. for a job. I believe this post may help you atleast in some part of your interviews.
First thing, keep updating yourself about jobs(walkins, off campus ,etc.) and try to register for it as soon as possible. I applied through online from apuzz site and hall ticket was generated. This interview procedure is the easiest process ever I attended.
There are actually 3 rounds and process lasted for 3 days. Around 700-800 students attended the drive. Approximately 100 were shortlisted in first round. And 70 students with self written AMCAT score were directly shortlisted for Technical HR. Finally 70-80 students cleared the process and confirmed as MINDTREE MINDS. Offer letters were given on the same day.
Round 1: AMCAT ONLINE TEST
This round plays a vital role for the process. There are 3 sections(quantitative, logical and verbal). For clearing this test, R.S.AGARWAL BOOK is more than enough. Actually one more section based on C, Database and OOPS Concepts will be there in AMCAT but as per the company norms it has been not there. Timing is the important cause for this round. You can go next question only if u complete 1 question.
- PART A -Quantitative Ability-25 Questions-35 Minutes
- PART B -Logical Ability-24 Questions- 35 Minutes
- PART C -Verbal Ability-18 Questions – 16 Minutes
Note as I said earlier, concentrate more on this round, because if you clear this round,you have almost done it.
Round 2: AMCAT BASED ONLINE PROGRAM TEST
This round is non-elimination round but your programs will be considered in HR round, if you does not perform there. There are 2 java programming questions and u need to type the program, compile and submit. Some hints will be on the screen. Time 1 hr.30 mins.
Round 3: TECHNICAL HR
In this round, there will be one HR, face to face process. Only way to clear this round SPEAK SPEAK SPEAK. As I am from ECE, the interview is great going since there are no technical questions on programming concepts. It took around 20 min. They expect only our confidence level than our technical and communication skills. Let me share the conversation.
