Mahindra Satyam Placement Paper Candidate Experiences IEM, Kolkata-10 Mar 2008
SATYAM PAPER ON 10th MARCH AT KOLKATA
Hi, SATYAM came for the 1st time in our collage this year. We were about 160 eligible candidates (criteria may be 60% + in 10,12 & DOB>86), out of which 58 cleared Aptitude, finally 25 of us got selected as 'Satyamite'..
It had 4 rounds Aptitude ,essay writing, HR & technical.
As Satyam 's Aptitude as -1/4 -ve marking , so be a bit careful . Although it looks different from others , all can be easily worked out .... just keep ur cool.
Just go through these topics like Probability, Time & work, Pyramids, SI/CI, Profit & loss, law of allegations,
Paragraph conclusions, Data sufficiency, Logical reasoning, Blood relations. Ages..puzzles, charts , etc.
It probably had upper cut off of 11. I am not quiet sure about it.
Essay :- Sort listed students from apti round were to write an esaay of approx. 300 words on given topics. We had topics like " Its time to bury our Hockey", "Rapists should be hanged", "Adv. of smoking ", .......
My advice is write correct, clear english & try to fill up the paper . Always include starting & concluding sentence (very imp.) & try to write either for or against , on one side. keep clean, good handwritting.
HR :- It was another cool round. They asked about relocation , my life so far, didnt asked anything from essay. He asked me what will i do if I have 2 jobs . I just said first U offer me this job & then I will have a 14 months time to decide. Keep a smiling face. My HR was of some 3-4 min. or so. Just before Technical round, my HR interviewer offered me some sweet ...... Ha Ha Ha.
Technical :- It was another funny round. First they asked me to wait for a min. May be having something. This time they didnt offered anything. then they asked me what i dont know. Simply said I dont know ....... just went on to say almost everything in B.tech course. .
Then they gave me a choice - What should they ask me or they will asked everything in physics upto Class 12. just adjust them diplomatically. then they asked about lever, pulley, their types , examples ..... just like SRK's 'panchwi class tak' show.
then something about OS, Unix like diff. between Unix & linux, which OS U use, why. what is shell. about progs done in lab.
Dont try to fool them . One of my interviewer was a ex-student from WBUT. So they always know the course.
Prototype of printf ? how to compile C progs in Linux., bytecode, What is OOPs, JVM .
Finally they gave me a C code to solve :- if ( ..... exp ...)printf ("World")elseprintf ("Hello")
To get output as "HelloWorld" ... what is exp ? ans - printf("Hello"). It was really cool round . Dont panic even if U dont know anything.
In the evening final selected candidates were announced. Gave a small lecture again .....................
Finally I am a Satyam-ite. Hope to see U in about 14 months time. & Best of Luck.
Oooh ... Satyam is the official IT partner of FIFA World Cup of SA(2010) & Brazil(2014). Lets hope myself as an employee will get tickets for WC Matches ..... So enjoy
