Bosch Get interview
I was interviewed on-campus at NIT Surathkal for Get role at Bosch
Test Other Interview Group Discussion
Round I was an Online Test, 30 students were selected
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 II was the Interview, around 10-12 students got selected.
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.
The final round was a group discussion.
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.
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)
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.
