# Adobe Interview Experience | Set 55 (On-Campus Full Time for MTS profile)

Adobe came in our college for MTS (Member of Technical Staff profile).

Round 1:

This was an online round conducted on Hackerrank platform.It had 3 coding questions.:-

1. You need to buy cupcakes as you visit from one shop to another.You can either buy a cupcake, sell a cupcake or do nothing.You will be visiting Y shops.And initially you have X cupcakes.At the end of the journey you should have Z cupcakes.Input is three numbers X, Y, Z.You need to output the maximum number of cupcakes that one can have in the journey.
2.  It was maximum contiguous sum sub-array problem.But it was not directly stated.A story was formed around it.If you observe the question correctly you will get that it maps to the  maximum contiguous sum sub-array problem.
3. You are given two strings S1 and S2. S2 contains a ‘*’ in middle not at start or end.Now the ‘*’ can be replaced by a NULL character or any other substring from s1.You need to return the number of strings from s2 that are substrigs of s1. Ex-

s1 “aaabbaaabb”

s2 “aa*b”

Ans – 12(Count every occurrence of “aa” matching with a following “b” and sum them all you will get 12)

Round 2:

Results were out after 3 days or so.20 students were selected after this round.My first question ran partial and second full.Last I attempted using find() and substr() but due to a stupid mistake, it didn’t pass.But I got shortlisted though they were also students whose q1 and q2 ran fully. Lucky me ;)!

Round 3:

In second round, 7 students were rejected.

Round 4:

Round 5

2 people were selected for this round.HR started with you have any questions for me.He explained about the new campus graduates program.Then most frequent one “Why us? Why Adobe ?”, He asked certain situation based questions like what if 1 year down the line a company offers you double the package, would you/not leave adobe? explain reasons.Why do you think girls are under- represented in coding sphere?Asking about my opinion on that.The discussion went towards feminism and all.He then asked about Noida or Bangalore option.My heart was pounding so hard by this time.Results were announced soon.

2 were selected and I was one of them, So happy that Adobe happened.Tip- They test your basics very well so keep that strong, be relaxed in the interview if you are stuck, they will throw in hints, so listen to them carefully.
