3 ROUND
HR INTERVIEW



PAPER 5:

Most of the question were from SOFTWARE ENGINEERING, C programming, Data
structures, Operating systems such as-

-> SDLC (software development life cycle)-what r various models [waterfall, prototype,
iterative enhancement, spiral], wht r the steps under these models.

-> some question about Testing, unit testing, integration testing, alpha, beta testing
,system testing.

-> What is CMM levels, Six sigma, ISO standards.

->what r various steps under which a C program is converted into .exe file
(preprocessing, compilation, linking)

->Program for any sorting method (I made bubble sort, he discussed complexity issues of
various sorting algorithms)

->Program for matrix multiplication.

->What are the different kinds of tree (questions about Binary tree, Binary search tree,
AVL tree)

->Difference between arrays and linked list, which one is better (I said it depends upon
application, if we want to store some name ie character string of predefined length array
will be better option bcoz more memory is required to store pointers etc)

-> Some question about Aerospace, aviation etc(I said these thing were not part of my
syllabus at all, but I if I get a chance to learn the these I can quickly learn them)

->Which data structure is used in expression evaluation, how a infix expression is
evaluated (first converted into postfix, then evaluate using stack)
-> Some operating system questions (about scheduling, semaphore, mutexes)

-> what is Real time system, difference between hard and soft real time systems with
examples(hint: in hard real time systems strict dead lines r imposed, THE SYSTEM
WILL FAIL if the processing is not done within defined time constrains ex. Firing a
missile on a aircraft, whereas in soft real time system deadlines are important but missing
the deadline will not lead to system failure, for ex. DVD player when a command is given
thru remote, the delay of few millisecond will not lead to serious implications)



-> I suggest you all to focus about your projects more. He may drive several questions
from ur projects itself.



There is procedure of two technical rounds, (In my batch, for some candidates 1 technical
round was face-to-face and another one is telephonic, I suggest to be prepare for
telephonic interview also, practice for describing your project etc on phone also, bcoz it is
a bit hard to make understand to a person who is not present in front of u, so practice it
also)



So, ALL THE BEST, be prepare, have FAITH on GOD. He has thought something for u,
dont worry.

(I know it is good to write or read, but vry hard to implement., but try it, surely it will
work),




For written test: Two set of papers were there, 1 for EC & 1 for CS. I opted for CS.

50 technical: most of the weightage was given to DBMS, data structures etc.

30 C programming: Read exploring C completely, in my suggestion that is vry good &
sufficient book for C questions.

20 aptitude question:
Few questions were like-

1>       Arrange Them in the order of space complexity

Merge sort, quick sort, heap sort



2>       Void main()

{

        complete=10;

complete1=11;

if(complete=12)

{

    printf (hi);

    }

else

{

    printf(hello);

}

            printf(%d %d ,complete,complete1);

        }



o/p- hi 12 11



3>       How many times in a day the hr. & min. hands of a clock are in straight line.

4>       How many times in a day the hr. & min. hands of a clock meet each other.
5>     Structure A

{

    int x;

    float y;

}a;

             union B

                    {

                        int p;

                        float ;

                    }b;

             choices: 1.all the times a & b have same size, 2. such declaration r not possible

                        3. a & b have same size. 4..

6> a simple qus on flow in a switch-case block.



PAPER 6:

WHat is software life cycle ?
How much time is spent usually in each phases and why ?
Which one do U want to work if selected in Honeywell ?
( I said I don't like testing )
They asked why ?
I said it is a boring job. Then they tried to analyse
the knowledge in testing.

What is testing ?
Which are the different types of testing ?
Then they explained the way they do testing. They said that they are
doing testing in requirement phase and design phase so that if any
problem comes in those phases it is not ncecessary to go back and change
the requirement or design. All the test processing is automated.

Why do U want to join Honeywell ?
Ans : To get a practical feeling of Real- time systems.

Do U know C++ ?
How good are U in C and C++ ?
Rate U'rslef in both C and C++. ( 1 - 10 marks)

Second round (around 45 minutes )

They wanted a bio-data at the time of inteview. I gave the placement office bio-data and
in that one there was column 'Major subjects studied'. Many of the questions came from
those.

Explain U'r research work. Lot of questions from it.
What is a distributed system ?
Some questions about CSP. ( I kept quiet)
Which languages do U know ?
What are the differences between Pascal and C.
I said Pascal is a strongly typed language.
Then what is typing and its advantages ?
Then he asked some questions from Compiler construction and Lisp.

WHich are the different computer architectures ?
What is the requirement in MIMD ?
What is the difference between RISC and CISC processors ?
Difference between loosely coupled and tightly coupled systems ?
What is an open system ?

Still a lot of questions from software engineering .
Which are the different phases in Software life cycle (asked again)
Why is analysis and testing phases very important ?

This is the pattern i have..i didn't attend for honewell so don't expect any more than this
plz do check this and don't send any queries to this id no use.

Their pattern is
OS : 10 Questions
C : 10 Questions
C++ : 10 Questions
Java : 10 Questions

OS is compulsory and you can choose any one of these three language. I had
chosen C++.
Here is few question I still remember. please do not go on my answers they
may be incorrect also.

C++ Questions
1) If there is one class template which has one static member variable that static variable
will belong to
   a) Every instance of class template will share the same copy of static variable
   b) Every instance of class template will have its own copy of static variable.
   c) Compilation error
   d) Don't remember.

2) What is template specialization ???
   a) define a new template class for a specific data type.
    b)c)d)

3) How we will overload operator *+= such that
    obj1 *+= obj2;
    implies that
   obj1=obj1*(obj1+obj2);
    four choice were there last option was d) it is not possible I checked
that option.

4) IN C++ what does the operator overloading means.
    a) Giving new meaning to existing C++ operators
    b) defining functionality of existing C++ operator for user define objects.
    c) defining new operators.
    d) don't remember.

5) what is '>>' in C++
   a) right shift operator and insertion operator depend upon the use
   b) right shift operator and extraction operator depend upon the context use
   c) right shift operator and insertion/extraction operator depend upon the use

6) class A
    {
     int a ,b;
     A() : a(0)
     {b=0;}
    };
   if you create obj of this class as A obj;
  a) b will be initialized before a
  b) a will be initialized before b
  c) both will be initialized together
  d) none of these.

OS Question
All OS questions were based on basics of UNIX all small -2 commands.

1) how image of one process can be replaced by other process
   a) exec
2) how image of one process can be copied to new born process
    a) fork
3) how can you list all the files used by a particular process
4) how do u create a link of file

C Questions

I did not attempted the C paper but still I just had a look on C and java
paper. in C most of the question were programs and their out was asked in LINUX
environment.
1)
    int main()
    {
    char *a= "Novell";
    char *b;
    b=malloc(10*sizeof(char));
    memset(b,0,10);
    while(*b++=*a++);
    printf("%s",b);
    return 0;
    }

2) int main()
