Interview Experience

Online test had 3 sections – Verbal, Business Analytics and Coding
1) Verbal section was an easy one. It had 12 questions to be solved in 15 minutes. Here we had to replace phrases with correct alternatives. Also replacing words with correct synonyms were asked and at last, paragraphs based questions were asked. Also, we weren’t allowed to traverse back

2) Business Analytics. 14 questions to be solved in 25 minutes. We were given some raw data and certain qualitative analysis and on basis of that we had to answer questions. Most of the questions required a good amount of calculation. In this round also we weren’t allowed to traverse back

3) Coding. 2 Questions to be solved in 60 minutes

a. First question was – We are given an array of length n and a value key. Replace arr[i] with sum of next key number. Consider array to be cyclic in nature, i.e., a[0] is to the right of a[n-1]. By taking an array of size 2*n, I was able to solve 8/11 test cases
b. You are given a binary string with some missing value denoted by ‘?’. So we had to generate all possible strings. Using basic recursion I was able to pass 11/12 Test cases.

Interview Experience

It was an easy round. It started with my introduction and what I know about Machine Learning (because I had mentioned my DL project in CV). It was followed by some basic Data Structures and Algorithms questions like implementing queue using stack, Cycle in a linked list, BFS vs DFS, prefix to postfix and a small discussion on Data structures. Questions were basic. Then he wanted to ask about OS and Java to which I told him that I’m not strong in Java and we have OS this semester. Then he asked me about Encapsulation and other paradigms of OOPs. And then one puzzle which was like “ We have 2 ropes and each rope takes 60 minutes to burn, so how can I measure 45 minutes”. And finally, he asked me whether I have any questions for him

This was a relatively tougher round as compared to the first round. It was taken by their senior leader. It was completely based on CV. It started with me introducing myself followed by some random talk on where I live, how things are going, online classes and all. He then asked me about the achievements I had mentioned in my CV. Then he directly jumped into my project and asked me to explain the procedure thoroughly. This took some time followed by him asking me project-related questions and then he asked me to explain to him another project. I told him about the project and what I think are the loopholes of it.
Then he asked about the things I know about C++ and why I use C++. And finally, he asked if I have any question for him to which I asked him some question related to the technical aspects of the FinTech ecosystem and about Wells Fargo

Interview Experience

It was a telephonic round. It started with my introduction and he asked me to tell things which are not mentioned in my CV. The point here is to make yourself clear about things you are saying. I told him about myself, hobbies, interests, strengths, and weaknesses. Then he asked me why I want to join Wells Fargo and about the things I know about Wells Fargo which I answered based on the pre placement talks and some facts I had read online. And finally, he asked me whether I have any questions for him to which I asked him a question.
