Virtusa Interview Experience - Bhimavaram, December 16, 2014

Hello Everyone,

I am G. Sai Prakash, Computer Science and Engineering student at Vishnu Institute of Technology(VIT), Bhimavaram.

Recently I have attended a campus drive conducted by VIRTUSA at Vishnu Institute of Technology(VIT), Bhimavaram.

Now I would like to share my experience with you, which I had during the interview.

The Interview process is started at 9:00 am with the introduction of recruitment team. The interview process consists of three rounds. The recruitment done by VIRTUSA is only for CSE & IT students.

Written Test :

The written test is for 40 questions followed by a java program. we have to take the exam in online. All the questions are related to Technical topics means core topics. It does not contain any aptitude or reasoning questions. The questions are mainly based on JAVA, DBMS & SOFTWARE TESTING. Most of the questions are given from JAVA. So, one must be through with all the java concepts because it also helps a lot during interview because VIRTUSA interviews are done mainly on JAVA. Coming to DBMS, the questions are related to SQL queries. Some bits are from Data Structures like stacks and queues.  There is a less focus on software testing, but basics should be clear and we have to know about types of testing and by whom the testing's are done in real world. The time given for these 40 questions is 40 minutes.

The test is followed by one program, we have to write the code for the given program only in java also have to pass the test cases given and the time given is half an hour. The program is not much harder. The programs are mainly asked on Strings and Arrays. Partial codes are also considered. So, better try to attempt the logic at-least. Time is not a matter in VIRTUSA written test. There is a enough time.
More than 100 students are taken the written test. Nearly, half of the students have cleared the written. So, clearing the written test is very easy.

After some time it's my turn to attend the Technical Round. I entered into the cabin.

Friends this is my second interview experience as I have already placed in "CSC",  and these are all the questions that I have faced during my interview process. I hope this will be useful as a part of your preparation for placements. 

Be confident all the time never give up. Want to say one thing is "The duck looks like smooth and calm on water, But under the water there is a restless pedaling". 

Success comes through continuous effort. Don't relax keep on going... All the best :)
