Tests last for 2-3 hours but are not very intensive (if youve taken the JEE youll know what intensive is).
Interview day is.. intensive! My suggestion is.. no matter how much youve worked on C/C++ and low-level algo stuff - DONT go into the interview day without 4-5 days of solid revision of core concepts.
I had to go through 4 tech and 1 hr interview. Youll either be asked *very* deep technology or no technology (only puzzles that is) no general probing tech questions here.
Tech areas that were covered:
- C++ - inheritance, polymorphism - VPTR/VTBL questions, operator overloading, templates
- Linked lists and trees! Lots about this
- Find general algos for list questions etc
- Deeper areas like compression algos, algo complexity
Tech questions to puzzles split was 40:60. That is mostly puzzles but this is upto you - you might be asked which you want. If youre confident about knowing tech inside out go for tech questions easier to prove yourself. Puzzles have a luck component.
Great place to work btw very cool plush office. Lots of smart people.
So how did I fare? Do I work for Adobe now? Thats the mystery
