how does such a person survive interview process at company

Two reasons:
1) consultancy firms (actually body-rental) will get whatever passes through them and throw them at customers like in Angry Birds. Once every few throws even the most useless birds will hit something vital.
2) this particular specimen happened to be interviewed by a particularly unprofessional manager who hired him simply because they cam from the same city - and this manager always does it. Anyone from Catania that's interviewed by him will be automatically hired.

I had so many fellow students passing exams rote-learning only the previous years exams and their solutions and cobbling together something similar without having understood anything. Plus there is always copying from other students, which in my country is quite common as Uni isn't as competitive as elsewhere and exchanging favours and connections is much, much more valued.
