    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Bangalore (India)
    Anonymous Employee in Bangalore (India)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Société Générale in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Got a call through a consultant Triple'A Plus product in SG. I had 2 Face to Face technical rounds in Bangalore, 1 from Geneva (for Triple'A Plus product) and one HR round. The questions were specifically from Triple'A Plus as I worked for more than 2 yrs in that Product. The senior interviewer didn't know that much about the product where as being from the Triple'A Plus R&D team, I knew more than them. I got selected..

    Interview Questions
    • To customize Triple'A Plus, we used to use Design Studio (a licensed version from Temenos & SG was not buying the license) hence I was asked manual customization process.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Not much technical work that I was expecting from them.
