Hi Friends,

I want to share my experience of my dream companies interview which i had on may 5th,
2010 with Satyam HR people.

First there was a online written test on 2nd may, 2010 at GEC, Bbsr, Orissa. Around 15-
20 colleges participated and 1000-1200 students appeared the written test. The result of
written round was out on 3rd may, 2010 and out of these students only 50 students were
selected for this next round.

The next round was Technical and HR round which was going to held on 5th may. I went to
satyam office at bbsr on 5th may, 2010. There was 7 panels out of which 6 technical and
1 HR panel. I was called by evening 5.40pm for Technical.

The HR was quite good and cool when i entered first he asked me about why you want to
join Satyam since you have 3 jobs in hand as prior to it was selected in 3 more companies
and i said as it is my dream company, then he swithced over to my project . You should be
through about your project. Since i have done my final year project in image processing
(DISP), as i belong to ECE branch we had code 0f 250 lines. He asked me to write the code
also after i wrote 38 lines he stopped me and jumped to C. He asked me for questions from

Then he asked me puzzles like
1. He told me you take five 1's and do what ever you like and bring 120.
Answer: (11* 11)-1

2. He made a triangle and said there is one temple in each corner of triangle and a pond
between two temples i.e., 3 temples and 3 ponds, A person went with some flowers and
first dipped them in one pond it became double and offered some to one temple, then rest
he dipped again in another temple and it became double again and then he offered some to
another temple andrest again dipped to last pond and gav all flowers to last temple. At the
end he found that all temples he gav same no. of flowers and no flowers remeined with him
then he asked how many flowers did the person had intially and how he gave to each

Answer: 7 and 8 (the person had intially 7 flowers and gave 8 flowers to each temple).
then he asked u say the fomula for this i said
Answer: (2 to power n )-1 no. flowers the person had intially and (2 to power n) no of
flowers he gav to each temple.
{where and is no of temples in the question}

Then he asked 2 more puzzles, then he asked from data structure,(as example of stack and
queue, heap sort, quick sort) then he asked from RDBMS and C++ (as candidate key,
normalization, new and malloc, calloc etc,)then he jumped to os as bios, cpu scheduling, etc
then he asked to write a small program.

Some questions i not able to recall anyhow then the HR said have a nice day. While coming
when i came out it was 6.35pm i.e i had interview of 55 minutes. then after i went to HR
interview at 7.00pm when i entered the HR said

"HR: So Suman how was and you?
ME: Fine sir.

HR: How was your technical?
ME: Yes sir my technical was fine and and i'm satisfied.

HR:So suman your technical was so good so what i will ask you in HR , so you can leave
now, have a nice day and we will get you back on monday i.e on 10 th may."
ME: Thank You sir.
Then i returned from bbsr that day i was quite confident i will get selected but instead of
10th may the result was out on 12th may and i got selected. I was very happy and now i'm
in a intern till the joining of Mahindra Satyam.

Good luck to all the guys who are going for Satyam interview and i suggest be strong in C,
C++, RDBMS, datastructure, Operating system, final year project and Puzzles.

Basic questions from OOP , C/C++, Mini Project ,DBMS, Data structure, OS and LSD.....they may ask
u write small programs....

Just study   the basics of the above mentioned confident wen u speak....Dont bluff...if u
dont know say that frankly....Look at the Hrs eyes and speak.But if u r not good in ur subject...its
sure that u will be rejected..they r looking for tech skills..extra cirricular activites are not much

Then for me another man came suddenly and started stress interview..first i couldnt follow what is

Before interviews, they asked to fill a form in which certain questions were asked to be
answered, given as below :-
 Q) Why SATYAM should hire you? (4 lines)
 Q) Where do you see yourself after 5 years? (4 lines)
 Q) What makes you aspire for satyam? (4 lines)

Some other details were also to be mentioned there. They dont ask for CV. Only this form is
important. But keep one with yourself.
In interviews they checked General awareness (Like IT..). CS and IT students were asked
technical questions. For non-IT engineers, they asked that how they can help their company and
few technical questions? Also they asked HR questions.
They told that they choose about 10% of total appeared students in pool campus. Finally 57
candidates were selected out of which 34 were from our college.
CHEERS to GEITians....

ALL THE BEST for SATYAM aspirants......

Satyam came to B.I.T., Mesra on 6th Aug 2005, and I got thru it. Thank u mam and all ur group members from whom i was able
to get questions pattern, gd topics, interviews etc.

Here I am sending the papers which I remember. I am from MCA (2003-2006).

The written test was of 15 questions in 30 mins. (Appeared approx. 300)
(Shortlisted for GD: 108)

1> A Basic program which u may take it as algorithm since nothing was mentioned on that.
It was like;

(Some more statements were there but main code was this)

2> Find the odd one out. (Data are different)
i> 312 ii> 369 iii>350 iv> 672 v> None of these

3> age problem. A man is 6 years older than his wife. 20 years before the man was 15 times as old as his son. Wife is 3 times
older than her son. What is wife's age. (Data are different)

4> Simple Interest Problem: A man gets a rate of 6% on a certain sum of money for first 2 years. Next 3 years 6.5% and after 5
years 8%. What will be the sum if he gets a total interst if Rs. 1200 in 8 years. (Data are bit different).

5> If Atul is the son of Zameer. Madhu is the daughter of Ahmed. Faisal is the wife of Ahmed. Zaheer is the brother of MAdhu.
Then what is the relation between Atul and Sudhir?
i> Cousin ii> Brother iii> Father iv> None of these
(Ans: None of these)

6> One problem on Figure matching which was very easy.
7> One question on average of temperatures which was also easy.

12> One question was like that there are numbers from 1,2,....1000. Every seventh number is cut off. and so on.....
It was quite long, i dont remember. I used hit and trial method to solve this. There were 10 numbers in each choice (four
I just checked that whether any one of the 10 numbers is divisible by 7 or not. It would reject the possibility of answer. The
option A consisted 10 numbers which were not divisible by seven. In the rest of the options at least 1 number was there which
was divisble by 7.

13> A para like Prof. Abacus is double degree holder and so on.. i dont remember

14> A problem on probability which I dont remember,

15> A man spends 10% of his earning on clothes. 20% of the remaining on House Rent, and 25% of the rest in shopping. Finally
he was left with Rs.___________ (4 digit No.) Whatz is salary. (Data are different)
Ans: Rs. 20,000/-

This is all i remember. The paper consisted of easy as well as hard questions. I marked 10 answers out of which I was sure shot of
9. I think the cut off was 8 or 7. Negative marking is there. Never do guess work and please solve urself and do not look into
others. It will help u in solving the paper with accurate answers and u will b confident that ur answer is correct.

Group Discussions: (Appeared 108 in group of 10), (Time: 10 mins)
Shortlisted for PI: 43
i> Effect on youth of Indian movies. (my topic)
ii> Should GD be conducted so as to select students in campus?
iii> India and UN
 And i dont remember rest.

My experience: I was not the initiator. Neither i was second nor third. When as the fourth person I started at a time 4 people
started too simultaneously. It was just a mess. I kept quiet. But I though this wont do. I just made all of them shut upand
said,"Just maintain the quoram. Lets everybody speak individually". This was followed for hardly 1 mins and again the same
thing happened. The our observer started to ask individually to some people for conclusion.
 According to me GD was not all satisfactory for me. But I got through.
One of my friend was the initiator in another group and he initiated well. He thot now his turn is over and he just kept quiet. He
was deselected.

Interview Experience:
Technical (around 15 mins)
He asked about project, just the concepts which I used. Further questions were: I was straight forward and precised becoz I didnt
knew much in detail the answers. He was not at all grilling.
1> What is a file?
2> WHat is a pointer?
3> What is data and information?
4> Steps of Software Engineering.
 Waterfall model.
5> Paging concept.
6> Queue?
7> Whatz the other name can we use instead of FIFO in Queue (Ans: LILO)
8> What is Primary Memory, Secondary Memory, RAM, Working memory etc.
9> Connection of VB and MS Access.

I did not answered many questions. Luckily i was asked the basic concepts only. It is beneficial to appear for the PI in the first lot
Very very simple. All the candidates who have appeared for Tech Interview was to appear for the HR. And then finally the
results came. HR was very simply. They asked about my 1 year gap. And next question,
"Work environment of Satyam" which I had written in "Why do u want to join Satyam" in their PI Sheet. It was very sinple.
Mainly they chekd our communications.

Well friends, just beleive in urself. Its very easy, simple. If ur communication is good, u can talk in front of 10 people and have
some knowledge about the main subjects like OS, C etc u get through. All the Best. U can do it.
