There were four rounds:-

Written Round:

There were 10-10 objective question with options each from Selenium and Java. From Java maximum were programming questions. Questions were related to Access specifiers, object creation, overloading, variables and collections. Questions were tricky. So you need to concentrate well while answering.

Selenium questions were straight forward. I remember two questions only. Return type of getWindowHandles() and What is WebDriver. Other questions were very easy. Your basics need to be cleared.

Although this round is easy but maximum rejection happened in this round only.

First Technical Round:-

I think this is a deciding round. They have big panel so an interviewer takes good time to evaluate candidates. A lot of questions were asked.

  15. They will ask many cross questions based on your answer. So drive it well.

Psychometric Round:

Psychometric tests are a standard and scientific method used to measure individuals’ mental capabilities and behavioral style. Psychometric tests are designed to measure candidates’ suitability for a role based on the required personality characteristics and aptitude (or cognitive abilities). They identify the extent to which candidates’ personality and cognitive abilities match those required to perform the role. Employers use the information collected from the psychometric test to identify the hidden aspects of candidates that are difficult to extract from a face-to-face interview. Read more about it here.

This test will be online and no technical questions.
