Round 1

Group Discussion

Group Discussion Topic
Intervention of US in other countries
Interview Experience
It is a general topic . As I had habit of reading newspapers and magazines almost on daily basis . So it helped me a lot and I was initiator in my group . Try to start early and get involved in discussion.
Interview Tips
- If you don't have knowledge of such topics think in an emotional manner like suppose you are a US citizen then what will you think , suppose you are a citizen of a country that US is going to invade and you can also think as a person from international community that has nothing to do with it.
-In my interview there were 3 members . They will divide candidates in such way that they each one will observe only one candidate and he will make notes on you.
Round 2

Other Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Tell me something about you the most usual question in an interview?
  • Question 2: Why you want to join a non core company?
  • Question 3: Where do you see yourself after 3 years ?
  • Question 4: Do you have any doubts about company?
Interview Experience
The answer for non core is one of the best at least that's what my friends said . I said suppose if I'm getting placed in a core company then it will take 10-15 years to become expert in a plant (I'm a chemical engineer ) and suppose I'm working with your organization i will be working with a pharma company , petrochemical company , FMCG etc. I will be working in multiple dimension . As you have 89 clients in fortune 100 and 75% in fortune 500 . So it will be a major boost for my career .

Where do you see yourself after 3 years - It should be based on profile . My answer was I would like to see myself in cost estimation , supply chain management if I'm getting placed in a core company.
My interview was very short it took hardly 5- 10 minutes.
Interview Tips
- Focus on you skills.
- Your answer should match with the profile of job.

- Ask some logical doubts in last like why companies are not disclosing names of their clients etc which shows that you have gone through companies website .

Interview Process
HR Interview Case Study Interview
Round 1

HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Tell about a trait of your personality that you think is a strength in personal life but does not serve you well in professional life? "one trait that think is a professional strength but not a positive thing in personal life”.
Interview Experience
This round was primarily a personal round revolving around the CV. The question broadly covered the various things done at ISB and the extra-
curricular. A lot of expected question were there on the Strengths, weaknesses, successes, Stay at ISB, Comparison with Undergrad education at IIT-B.
The interviewer was insistent that I answer both but I answered the first part and said that there was nothing I could think of for the second part because I just could not relate to such a separation in personal and professional personalities. Of course the answer was detailed and elaborate and ultimately convincing.

The conversation was a very easy one. I think I was able to break ice very early in the discussion and was always conscious for the crispness of my answers. As a result we were able to have a long discussion about a lot of different issues during the 30 minute+ long discussion. I was also trying to build a coherent storyline throughout by citing examples and connecting back to things I had earlier said in the interview.
Interview Tips
Be sure to have a consistent story for all of the above and make sure that you keep corroborating your claims and assertion from time to time. For every aspect I was asked to site an example.
Be very thorough with you CV. Elaborate every point of your CV and prepare answers to the standard expected questions. Make sure you have rehearsed them well enough.
Round 2

Case Study Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: An international Office stationary retailer has just entered India and set up a sample store in Bangalore in association with an India Retail Giant. The store has been open for 3 months now. What should the international retailer do in the coming times and what should be there strategy?
Interview Experience
I started by looking at the international retailer (Company) and its Indian partner? Why the venture, what strengths, type of contract, etc. it seems the company had efficient back end operation and the front end expertise was with the Indian partner. They would need 6 months to get out of contractual obligations. The operation is merely breaking even right now. I also looked at the competition and customers buckets and there was not enough information available on this.
After this initial analysis the case question was flipped to find out the drivers of setting up a retail store. Some of the drivers discussed were :
- Geography (decided by regulation, logistics, operations, etc)
- Store format (Departmental, Hypermart, location in city or outside city)
- Product Mix ( What would be item stocked)
- Partnerships (potential allies)
- Competition
- Target Customers (to decide Footfalls X Conversion Rate X Ticket Size)
The next part of the case was that where will I gather information about all these, customers, geographies, etc. I said there could be two ways of collecting information: Primary Research and Secondary Research. Primary we can collected from other stores, scanner data, Pilot study, survey, etc Secondary could be done through industry and analyst reports like Crisil, Datamonitor, ISI Emerging markets, These reports normally give detailed outlook about cities, types of formats, conversion rates, catchment area and other parameters. Given that we had just one monthinformation, Secondary research would be more appropriate.
