  • Signals and Systems
Interview preparation tips for other job seekers - It was for an entry level job and got to know about it from an acquaintance.

First Round was to judge engineering aptitude, i was asked general things and about my project. The interviewer was was very nice and friendly. A good experience overall.
Second round was a technical round questions from my projects and subjects like EMT and Communication systems was asked in great details. Friendly Interviewer, even though it was an interview I learnt a great deal. Again a very good experience.
Third Round was manager round. Again a technical round. Question asked from EMT and communication systems. The interviewer was not friendly at all, I felt like I was sitting in a college viva. The interviewer started every question with "Do you have any Idea about--" which I felt was berating and rude at least. While explaining things the interviewer interrupted me again and again and kept asking questions related to it which intimidated me. In the previous rounds of interview if I answered incorrectly or partially correctly the interviewer would ask me to rethink and give me sometime for the same. Here the interviewer would answer with "hmmm" again and again and move to the next question. Overall questions asked were from complete basics but I didn't have a good interview experience at all.

Reading previous interview experience for freshers, I was told I'd be asked for my preferred subject but that was not the case so an interviewee should be prepared for the worst.
