1) Technical Interview
The technical Zoho interview questions vary depending on the background of the candidate. Going through the syllabus of your program (especially for freshers) will be very helpful in cracking this section in front of the interviewers.. In general, the following general topics are asked of candidates.
- Algorithms and Logic
- Operators and Processors
- Data Structures
- Files and storage
- Database management systems
- Networks and Connections
- Coding Problems
Staying calm under the onslaught of questions that serve to deter you will be key to cracking this section. Having the confidence in your basic will help you tackle any kind of questions thrown at you from any perspective. Take a look at examples of Zoho interview questions here.
2) HR Interview
The Zoho interview questions in the HR round usually revolve around the personality and background of the candidate. The questions will always vary depending on the interviewers, but a few of the common topics are;
1) Family and friends
2) History of Candidate
3) Hobbies and Passions
5) Strengths and Weaknesses
There is no ‘cracking’ an HR interview per se. The goal of an HR interview is to get to know you and to ascertain whether everything mentioned on your resume is true or not. It also serves a goal for the panel to check whether the candidate will be a good cultural fit for the company.
Take a look at a few Zoho interview questions and experiences;
My interviewer asked me 3 questions and also asked me to give the algorithm of them.
The first question was about assigning elements in a linked list.
The second question was to about the functions of a binary tree.
The third question was similar to the second question (they requested a further explanation in detail about my answer), the panel felt that I had simply memorized the answer and didn’t know the logic, so they asked me further about the concept of binary trees. But because my basics were strong, I had no problem with it
The final question was to about Sorting. The interviewer gave me a question and asked me to explain the logic. Once that was done, he asked me to write the code for the same.
After that, I moved on to the HR interview. The HR interview was very easy. The interviewers made me feel comfortable, and it was a general discussion about my family and my hobbies. They also enquired about my location preference. My HR interview was relatively short, it was over in less than 10 minutes.
There were 2 interviewers for my technical round. They started off with asking about my project, which was about a database management system. From there, they asked me a lot of questions about DBMS, out of which I think I answered about 60-70% questions correctly. Then they asked me which was my weakest subject. After that, they tried to put me under pressure by asking me a lot of questions from my weakest subject (PHP), but I stayed calm and told them whatever I knew from the basic concepts that I had studied in class. Once they knew that I had the basic knowledge in PHP, the interview eased a little and they asked a few questions about Sorting and operators, all of which I answered correctly.
Next, I had my HR interview. The HR interview was very relaxed, and not at all stressful like the technical interview was. I had 2 interviewers again, both of whom asked me easy questions about my hobbies and my passions. They also asked me about my parents. In the end, they asked me about my location preference, so I was confident that I had a good chance to get the job, which I eventually did.
