Application
I was interviewed on-campus at IIT Madras for Analytics role at Axis Bank
Interview Process
Resume Shortlist Test Guesstimate Interview
Round 1

Resume Shortlist

Interview Experience
Resume shortlist was liberal, I feel. Having experience of using R or python and having worked with data is a plus. Also, coursework like Probability, Linear Algebra might help
Interview Tips
Whether you have analytics experience or not, make sure you quantify your achievements in your resume.
Round 2

Test

Test Sections
  • Section 1: Data Analysis
Interview Experience
4 hour test - They gave us data about movies, director, three actors, all of their Facebook likes, Imdb rating, etc. Was asked to choose a director and cast from the point of view of a production house. I used R but excel was sufficient I hear.
Interview Tips
Knowledge of R is a big plus. However, you can explain whatever you did in excel as well. Approach was given a lot of importance, I think
Round 3

Guesstimate Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Predict the Number of people online on Facebook right now in Chennai
Interview Experience
I segmented Chennai population based on income and said the least 20% might not have access to internet and very less percentage (say 10%) have access to internet. Segmented the resultant population into young, middle aged and old. Younger chennaites would have arrived after classes (it was 5 :30 pm during my interview) and most of them would be online. Middle aged ones would be mostly travelling home from work unless they worked in night shifts. Older people might not have FB accounts ( a significant percentage).
Interview Tips
They interrupted me in between here and there. However, stay calm and explain them your procedure. Answer was not given much importance it seems

Interview Process
Test Technical + HR Interview
Round 1

Test

Test Sections
  • Section 1: QUANTS
  • Section 2: VERBAL
  • Section 3: COMPETENCY BASED
Interview Experience
Any CAT aspirant can easily solve the quants and verbal section but the competency based section requires tons and tons of patience. there were many questions and most of them were video based questions, i.e you are supposed to watch the video and later answer which is the most apt solution for the scenario in the video.
Interview Tips
Do the basic CAT questions and you will easily clear the round. and also try to be patient while solving the competency based questions and i can assure you that it will be a quiet tedious section
Round 2

Technical + HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: tell me about yourself?
  • Question 2: Your strengths and weaknesses?
  • Question 3: guesstimate
Interview Experience
My interview was pretty peaceful. interviewer gave me option to choose any project of my interest(which i have done) and asked me to explain about it. I was talking about it for 10 mins non-stop (i think they were impressed by this) and later they asked me a simple guesstimate. THE END!!!
Interview Tips
Be thorough with your resume. You must be knowing in and out about it and try to fill your resume with stuff related to analytics otherwise you are gonna bore them. They will check whether you are able to express yourself freely, so try to be as calm as possible. And for the guesstimate try to go through the guesstimate thread available in Quora (thats what i did) and that should be enough
