Syntel Interview Experience,2008

Recommended Posts

Guys this is my experience at syntel recriutment at chennai on 23rd and 24th june 2008..................First of all am selvakumar currently doing my final year at crescent engineering college..................I attented the syntel placement drive at sathyabhama university with panimalar and my college.................over 1500 people attended the drive and out of which around 48 got selected.............28 from sathyabhama university.............15 from panimalar.........and 5 from crescent..............The recruitment started on 23rd at 9am with the PPT............the Human Resource head took the ppt and set off the placement drive..................Each of us were given a login id and password.............Pls remember this syntel usually has an online test...............The test was rather easy but had 6 parts [10-14 questions in] each with a different sectional cut-off............and also each section has a timer set usually in seconds after which the section changes and its really impossible to get back to the previous section once the set time expires so time management is one very important factor..............after that around 2 pm the results were announced...........many were short listed and in my college out of 200 people 44 were selected.................The next round is the G.D round.....again beware this is were the maximum elimination of candidates take place..........Since we were 44 we were split into 10 in each batch so 4 batches and 1 batch with only 4 people.............The G.D started at 4 pm..............Each batch approx. 4 or 5 only were selected in some there were only 3.............Thus the count came down to 18 in total from my college....................Then immediately after G.D we were given a sheet and told to write an essay on a topic...........We were given "IT a boon or bane for INDIA".....................after writing we were told to leave and come at 8am the next day............it was around 6:30 when we left..................The next day we reached there sharply at 8 am.................The next step was the TECHNICAL INTERVIEWSorry to say this but if you are not technically strong don't even bother to attend this round.......because this is one round in which your skills alone can save you.............They usually ask in which language you are familiar with so say them whatever language you are comfortable with.............better if you have already specified in your resume............Am not spoofing here but i had the longest technical round [around 45-50 minutes].............had a lot of questions from C and C++................i was comfortable with SQL however he never asked me that and started with C and C++ by default...............i answered about 90 percent of them..................the results came only at 6 pm in the evening and 8 of us were short listed..............We were told to go for H.R round were simple questions like:1.Long term goal and short term goal.2.Tell me about yourselves.3.Why did you choose to attend the syntel placement drive............were asked.This is the most easiest part...............At last they called all who attended the H.R round into the same room where the H.R round took place and started calling the short listed candidates......................5 were called my college and I was very happy that i was one among them..............So prepare well guys all the very best..............P.S. if you want the technical questions please feel free to mail me ill send it to you..............
