PERSONAL INTERVIEW (TECHNICAL)

The interviewer started off asking me about the projects that I had done. I had attended a DSP workshop at IIT Madras where we learnt about the working of Blackfinn processor. I explained about the processor and the various programs we had implemented on it.

Next he asked about data structures, especially queues. He asked me to write a C program to implement it.

Lastly he asked me about computer architecture. He asked me what was the basic block diagram of a Computer system. He then asked me to explain how a Computer system worked. ( Request from an I/O device, How the CPU responds, Different types of Data Transfer,etc).

Basically he asked me more questions from microprocessors and computer architecture. A basic knowledge of C or C++ is required.

PERSONAL INTERVIEW (HR)

The HR was interested in knowing only one thing, that is if I was comfortable relocating to Noida. He asked this question quite a few times. Apart from this , he asked why I was interested in Samsung and why this job in particular.

SUMMARY OF EXPERIENCES

The interviews were a good experience. The interviewers were all friendly and open to questions. I was fascinated by the technology they were working on and I had asked a couple of questions which they answered happily.

SUGGESTIONS TO JUNIORS

The apti is quite easy to crack so no worries there. They aren’t looking for toppers so even students with low pointers have a good shot. Know your resume well. Do not simply write about projects to fill your resume as they ask a lot of questions from it. Be calm and confident when you answer. Also ask questions. Make them believe that you are interested in their company and their work.
