Interviewer: Okay Harshit, let me puzzle you now. Are you ready for this?

Me: Sure sir (with a confident smile, but my heart was beating like hell because you never know if that same riddle could decide your fate).

Interviewer: Suppose you are given 'n' number of eggs and each egg has a threshold value of say 'm', where the threshold is the number of floors in a building after which it will break.

Me: Okay (with a poker face: Wohoooooo !!!! I know this one, this is the famous egg puzzle ... I have you Mr. Interviewer :))

Interviewer: For example, if the eggs have a threshold value of say 10, then th

Me: Okay (with a poker face: Wohoooooo !!!! I know this one, this is the famous egg puzzle ... I have you Mr. Interviewer :))

Interviewer: For example, if the eggs have a threshold value of, say, 10, then these eggs will not break when dropped from any floor that is <10 and will break when dropped from all other floors in the building that are > = 10.

Me: Okay (same poker face, actually with a more confused look so that it feels like I've asked you for an amazing puzzle)

Interviewer: So you need to calculate the minimum number of eggs needed to identify your threshold value. Since there are 100 floors in the building.

Me: Ohkeyyy… (Now I was really confused because I wasn't sure if I had asked the same puzzle or is it just me? It didn't seem like the same puzzle…)

Interviewer: (I have you Harshit… .;))

// After some reflection and reconfirming to myself that I can't treat it as the same puzzle ..

Me: 1 (I think I nailed it;))

Interviewer: What ?? Can you explain please? (This guy screwed up this last piece of cake)

Me: Sir, I would drop an egg starting from the first floor, bring it back, and do the same process sequentially until the egg hatches, which will determine the threshold value. (Got it sir :) forgot to mention in the puzzle that I couldn't reuse the egg)

// We both laughed at this ...

Result: selected.

Although this was not only the reason, but the experience was incredible;)

The HR lady had to go through a high level of embarrassment after interviewing a candidate from Bihar when she put an empty glass on the table when the lady said, "The company will provide you with coins."

Bihari man puts empty glass on interview table when HR said 'company will provide you coins'

We went through some incredible experiences, during a job interview. But what happened recently in an interview with a multinational will surprise you. The HR lady had to go through a high level of embarrassment after interviewing a candidate from Bihar when she put an empty glass on the table when the lady said, "The company will provide you with coins."

Everything was going well and Sunderdas had answered all the questions to the best of his ability. He was confident and well articulated in his responses. The HR lady was also impressed by his profile and was willing to select him for the position. Then came the hammer blow. When told that the company would provide 'rooms' (for accommodation), Sunderdas could not resist the temptation of what he thought was someone offering him liquor, and showed his empty glass that he always carried with him.

The lady was surprised to see such behavior and asked for security, which eventually expelled the person. Sunderdas has filed a complaint against the company for its inhumane treatment.

Even the police sympathize with Sunder, as they also know the real meaning of "Quarter". Our Faking News reporter caught up with Sunderdas and said: “After the liquor ban in Bihar, we are hungry for liquor. Why does the government prohibit legal drinking habits? Because of the ban, we get excited about every little opportunity to drink liquor, so when the interviewer told me that the company would provide 'quarters', I couldn't understand the true meaning of the word. "

Other companies have learned a lesson from history and have asked their hiring managers to emphasize the term "accommodation" rather than "rooms." Meanwhile, Nitish Kumar has used this story to praise his decision to ban alcoholic beverages, saying that the ban on alcoholic beverages is working in Bihar and that is the reason why people turn to drinking during their stay in other states.

Q: Can you design a plc with any SCADA software?

Me: no sir

Q: That's it, we are playing Ghar Ghar! (House House)

* wtf is the first interview of my life *

Q: Do you cram things and don't like to write theories? How can you create your own SCADA software?

Me: One has to develop a VB application that acts as an OPC client. The PLC will transfer data to the OPC server and the OPC client will poll the server for data.

Q: Hmm well, banadiya? (So ​​you made the software?)

Me: The problem is that you have to buy the OPC server software.

Me: In India, people generally think that a slim person is not fit, even my grandmother thinks the same. Physics says that thin surface area has more energy as molecules vibrate with each other more compared to thick surface area. Medical science shows that a thin belly causes less disease. A man whose belly is turned out compared to his chest is an unsuitable type.

Q: So you are saying that I am unfit?

Me: no sir, it's an interview. I'm just saying what I know, even I could be wrong.

Q: my answer to fitness does not fit you. So the interview is over?

Me: It's hard to sync up with a complete stranger in just 30 minutes of conversation. If we have questions other than aptitude n, if our thinking matches, you would have passed the interview, right sir?

int: Don't teach me philosophy, I'm an engineer, I only work with facts and figures. It is not your poetry drama that goes here.

Me: I gave you the facts, if you allow me I can google and give you the figures.

Q: Do you have any questions?

Me: I always studied engineering in books, I blame Indian education, if I am selected, will I implement the theories here practically in a job?

Q: Your resume is a two page resume, like a newer version, how could you make this mistake? Two-page resumes are three years more professional. Tell me what is the difference between cv n resume? Throw it away, you can go.

Me: Sir, I'm cooler, that's why I made this mistake. Have a great day sir!

Q: You too. Good luck with your job interview for another company. Have lunch, ask for a coupon from the administration block, tell him my name.

Below are the Interview Questions, which
were asked in HR Round…..No one
will GET second chance to impress….Very
very Impressive Questions and Answers…..

Question 1: You are driving along in your
car on a wild, stormy night, it’s raining
heavily, when suddenly you pass by a bus
stop, and you see three people waiting for a
bus:
* An old lady who looks as if she is about
to die.* An old friend who once saved your
life.* The perfect partner you have been
dreaming about.
Which one would you choose to offer a ride
to, knowing very well thatthere could only
be one passenger in your car? This is a
moral/ethical dilemma that was once
actually used as part of a job application.
He simply answered: “I would give the car
keys to my Old friend and let him take the
lady to the hospital. I would stay behind
and wait for the bus with the partner of my
dreams.”Sometimes, we gain more if we
are able to give up our stubborn thought
limitations. Never forget to “Think Outside
of the Box.”

Question 2: What will you do if I run away
with your sister? The candidate who was
selected answered ” I will not get a better
match for my sister than you sir”

Question 3:Interviewer (to a student girl
candidate) – What is one morning you
woke up & found that you were pregnant.
Girl - I will be very excited
and take an off, to celebrate with my
husband.Normally an unmarried girl will be
shocked to hear this, but she managed it
well. Why I should think it in the wrong
way, she said later when asked.

Question 4:Interviewer : He ordered a cup
of coffee for the candidate. Coffee arrived
kept before the candidate, then he asked
what is before you? Candidate: Instantly
replied “Tea”He got selected.You know how
and why did he say “ TEA” when he knows
very well that coffee was kept before.
(Answer: The question was “What is before
you ( U – alphabet) Reply was “TEA” ( T –
alphabet)Alphabet “T” was before
Alphabet “U”

Question 5: Where Lord Rama would have
celebrated his “First Diwali”?People will
start thinking of Ayodhya, Mithila Janak's
place, Lankaetc…But the logic is, Diwali
was a celebrated as a mark of Lord
KrishnaKilling Narakasura. In Dusavataar,
Krishnavathaar comes
So, Lord Rama would
not have celebrated the Diwali At all!

Question6; Interviewer said “I shall either
ask you ten easy questions or one really
difficult question.
Think well before you make up your mind!”
The boy thought for awhile and said, “my
choice is one really difficult question.”
“Well, good luck to you, you have made
your own choice! Now tell methis. “What
comes first, Day or Night?”
The boy was jolted into reality as his
admission depends on thecorrectness of
his answer, but he thought for a while
andsaid, “ It’s the DAY sir!”
“How” the interviewer asked,
“Sorry sir, you promised me that you will
not ask me a SECOND difficult question!”
And hence, he was selected as because of
his quick-wickedness. …….
This is What Interviewer expects from the
Interviewee. …
So now you get a fair idea of the off the
box things that you can expect in your
interview. They are judging your confidence
levels and your wit. They want to see if
these situations make you uncomfortable
or even nervous. They see if you have
problem solving capabilities when faced
with unexpected troubles. Sometimes the
reason for asking these questions can be
literally to check your sense of humor or
creativity funny right??

Hope you liked the questions asked in IAS interview Thanks for reading ;)

The biggest downside is that the best trolls take a long time, and you often don't have a lot of time in an interview setting. You typically have 45 minutes (or if your organization is really stupid, 30 minutes) and you need to determine the extent of your technical talent and problem-solving ability in that small window of time, which is often already too small.

Troll someone in an interview would only serve to determine cultural fit, and cultural fit is just a "denial" criterion, rather than an "acceptance" criterion, that is, if someone doesn't fit the culture, they don't want to hire them

The biggest downside is that the best trolls take a long time, and you often don't have a lot of time in an interview setting. You typically have 45 minutes (or if your organization is really stupid, 30 minutes) and you need to determine the extent of your technical talent and problem-solving ability in that small window of time, which is often already too small.

Trolling someone in an interview would only serve the purpose of determining cultural fit, and culture fit is only a "deny" criteria, rather than an "accept" criteria, i.e. if someone is not a culture fit, you don't want to hire them, but if they are a culture fit, you still might not want to hire them - e.g. if they don't pass the technical bar. Further, people respond in a variety of surprising ways when you troll them, so it becomes difficult to come up with a baseline of expected (or desired) behavioral responses to troll questions. In general, trolling is expected merely to elicit alarm, embarrassment, or shameful behavior, and it's not always that useful to "successfully" find a candidate who is able to detect the troll and remain calm and/or boring, or maybe try to troll you back. You might just end up with a troublemaker on your hands, rather than successfully finding a "disruptive startup personality."

Deloitte initially screens,any resource,through an online test.What I attended was an online technical round.

It was pretty easy to crack the online test.

Once that is done,the shortlisted candidates would be called for the other rounds of interview.

Since I finished the online round, I have been asked to present myself for the other technical rounds.

They had sent an email asking us to reserve a space for the interview, which was useless.

Entré a la habitación y saludé al entrevistador "Buenos días" señor (Ese tipo
me miró con dureza)


Entrevistador: Sit Harsh


Yo: gracias señor


Entrevistador: Me preguntó sobre mi proyecto del año pasado y algunas otras cosas técnicas de mi campo (ohhh, me olvidé de decirte que estaba estudiando Ingeniería en Electrónica y Comunicaciones).


Todo estaba bien hasta ahora.


Entrevistador: SALGA (quiero decir, ¿qué me está echando este tipo?)


Entrevistador: quédese afuera cuando lo llame y luego solo entre


Almost 5 mins were gone ,I knew the time perfectly because every minute for me was like an hour .


Then the bell rang and the peon called me in.


Interviewer : Harsh , come in
Have a sit.Tell me what's the difference in the room now after 5 mins then it was before.
( At this moment I was dumbstruck,i was like what this person is asking me)

IN MY MIND : I checked the desk minutely, I scanned the wall ,looked at the papers scattered haphazardly on the table ..
Then after checking all the things properly i answered

Me : Sir, before I went out the wall clock showed the time 12:47 am (it was a digital one so I know exact timing) and now it's showing 12:56 am, it's the only difference I spot here.

Interviewer: ( a professional smile )
Thank-you harsh you may go now

Me: Thank you, Sir ( ohhhhh my god the butterflies just stopped in my belly)

Result : Got Selected

What is your greatest weakness?

I hate troll questions. If you are in a position where the job offer is a nice to have and you have multiple offers in your pocket, I would just give a snarky reply to the question and walk out. Asking a troll question speaks volumes about the culture you would be entering.
