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.

I Applied for job through Personal Contacts for Consultant role at Accenture
Interview Process
Case Study Interview HR Interview
Round 1

Case Study Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: There is a factory. The transportation company charges the factory owners as long as their trucks stay in the factory area. Costs are rising due to this. How do you account for this problem?
Interview Experience
After listening to the question I immediately analysed by asking myself some questions.
a) What can be the internal issues due to which trucks stay in the premises overtime? This could be broken down into - No preparation by the warehouse - No space in the warehouse- Shortage of tools and materials to unload Point no. 1 can be broken down into why there is no preparation by the warehouse personnel. One can analyse that there may be no communication between procurement division and store manager and the store manager may not know what he is getting, how much is he getting and at what time. The other reason can be that the truck is entering the premises with the wrong items (contrary to what was ordered) Point no. 2 can be broken down into several inventory management issues. Demand estimation, service cycle levels and are they reasonable and things like that. Basically a whole lot of OPMG from term 3. Point no. 3 is what do they use to upload. In this case the labour was fine but then there was a problem with the pallet availability. Pallets can be unavailable because they are procured from a vendor with high lead time. b) What can be the external factors that influence increase in costs? Are these the only transporters? Can we get better rates from another transporter Are these transporters getting rate of the items brought in.
Interview Tips
Stay cool and confident. A case is just like doing a 30 min project under a
guide. Engage with him and be interested in knowing more.
