Round 1

Test

Interview Experience
Round I was an Online Test, 30 students were selected
Interview Tips
Once you are through the tests, the next few rounds are a breeze. In my opinion the company is not looking for the best students, rather it knows that most students can adapt to the required roles with time and training. So I feel that their only concern is that they find candidates willing to stay there for sufficient enough time till their investment in the candidate pays off. So whatever you say to the interviewers please keep this at the back of your head. This includes them asking about your [plans for the future].
Round 2

Other Interview

Interview Experience
Round II was the Interview, around 10-12 students got selected.
Interview Tips
They will ask you about your resume and I feel they can tell the difference between a silly classroom project and some real work that you have done. But again its all about how you sell it. Go into the depths of it and convince them that your project is legitimate. Most questions I faced at this stage, were related to my resume. My advice keep it short, don't fill the pages.
Round 3

Group Discussion

Interview Experience
The  final round was a group discussion.
Interview Tips
The GD if you make it through is the real clincher. For me to dominate in my GD was cake walk. I was always a good speaker and I easily dominate. I feel that is what convinced them the most.

Skill Tips
To be honest, at the time I appeared for this company, my technical knowledge was very limited and I did not feel I was adequately prepared in the least. The tests usually have an aptitude or English sections. If your technical knowledge is limited, concentrate on these aspects. They are much easier to pick up and combined with CAT or GRE preparations, you should be able to score comfortably high on these sections.(and be assured, most people are in your state)
General Tips
My placement experience from my point of view was a joke. It does not test anything nor is it a reward for effort system. All the company sees you is a void entity they can fit into the system.They don't care about your extracurriculars, sports, quizzing ability, music, etc etc.They will look at your pointer to gauge if you can do work. Then they will take everything you say to gauge if you will stay at their company and be a worthy investment.Well in the beginning I felt quite apprehensive and I found the whole process daunting. I felt I couldn't survive the competition of my batchmates. I felt I was not adequately prepared for the tests. And looking at the sample questions really demotivated me. My advice- Don't do what I did at the beginning. Just go sit for the company regardless of rhyme or reason.

Resume Shortlist Test Interview Interview
Round 1

Resume Shortlist

Interview Experience

Round 2

Test

Duration
45 min Minutes
Interview Experience
There was an online Logical , Quants & Technical test
Interview Tips
I didn't. I used educated guesses to sneak through. It would have helped if I would have revised KDOMS, some Stress/Strain Equations, and Basic Engineering Drawing Techniques.
Round 3

Interview

Interview Experience
There were two rounds of interviews ;50 mins Tech, 25 mins HR. They asked about Engineering Drawing, the work I did at my 6 months intern, my stint as a Coord and Core, a few questions on my perception of fair play and honesty, what would I do in my first 30 days if the company recruits me? In short, the tech round was more like a pseudo HR round for me.
Round 4

Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: My interests, apart from acads....
  • Question 2: Where I see myself in 5 years...?
  • Question 3: What kind of job will excite me..?
  • Question 4: If I would like to prefer one city over the other..?
  • Question 5: And a few other questions
Interview Tips
I had attended several other interviews before this one that helped. I had asked a few of my friends to conduct mock interviews for me. So was reasonably well prepared (at least for the HR part). I was pretty straightforward and honest in my answers. I remember I got pretty sentimental talking about honesty, and that perhaps worked in my favour.

Resources

Preparation materials

Courses
  • TA101,
  • TA201,
General Tips
1. My resume focused mainly on the projects I had undergone and I was able to shift my interview in that direction. 

2. It happens that if any point in your resume matches with their domain then you can easily make through. The preparation of core involves the revision of the courses undergone during the entire BTech like I was asked about the TA101 in one of the technical interview. TA201 is very important for the manufacturing jobs.

Bosch NA interview

AnonymousFresherNot Selected
Application
I was interviewed on-campus for NA role at Bosch
Interview Process
Resume Shortlist Technical Interview
Round 1

Resume Shortlist

Interview Experience
The resume was as per the norms of the placement cell of our institute.
I used only one resume for different companies, however I altered my “areas of interests” to align them with the profile on offer. For instance while applying for programming profiles I mentioned my areas of interest as C++ and data structures, whereas in core companies I mentioned my areas of interests as machining and power systems.
Round 2

Technical Interview

Interview Experience
The company conducted a shortlisting process based on the resume. The requirement for an electrical engineering student to get shortlisted was a project in control systems and data structures. The company had also initially kept a CGPA cut-off of 7.0 but due to lesser number of applications they relaxed the CGPA requirement.

The next round was interview round. The interviewer was an electrical engineer himself. He was supposed to ask me core technical questions; however I told him that I was more inclined towards getting recruited for my strength in data structures. He asked me questions on data structures. He asked me to state the different sorting techniques that I was aware of. He also asked me general HR questions. He also asked me puzzles as well; in the puzzle he gave me a figure having 9 dots arranged in “3X3” matrix format and asked me to join them using minimum number of lines without lifting the pen.

The company shortlisted some candidates for the HR interview round, but I failed to qualify for that round.
Motivation for applying
Robert Bosch is a core company. I had very little idea about it and came to know about it through the pre placement talk only.
