General Tips
Prepare well for the GDs’ and interview because, a good CV only takes you to the interview and becomes irrelevant after that. Only preparation matters in selection. Also, prioritize your sectors based on your interest, and profile. Be realistic and practical while doing this. Also, If possible, keep one or two options ready beforehand (Ph.D., MBA, civil services, startup/family business) in case you are not able to crack a good job as it prevents you from getting panic. Also, if you are shortlisted in multiple companies in a single slot, do take a friend with you to manage everything. Never be overconfident if you have a very good CV. There have been various instances where many so-called high profile people have struggled with placements due to lack of preparation. Also, do not waste your time preparing for all the sectors, as you won’t be able to become a master in any of them.

In the final round- behavioral interview they asked for situations in your life and asked questions on it. And for every situation these were the common questions: Why is it so?, Was the situation resolved?, How did the event end?, What did you accomplish?, What did you learn from the experience?

Skill Tips
Other than that just go through all the economics they teach in 3rd year, that’s more than enough. Try to be quick at calculations. If required practise some tricks to make yourself fast enough. For the case studies try to avoid silly mistakes. It's very common that in such pressure some small mistakes will happen in calculations.
General Tips
Also during behavioral interview try to think for some logical explanation for all the situations you provide. Try to keep the situations related to academics as much as possible, and sound confident. It was a nice experience and people were friendly. I think being quick in calculations and remembering a bit of economics is good enough.

Interview Process
Case Study Interview HR Interview Case Study Interview
Round 1

Case Study Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Explain the basic profit-loss for a pizza delivery service.
  • Question 2: Plot a graph of the variation in the selling price for certain profits
Interview Experience
I actually made one mistake in my calculations, but was able to identify it on my own and eventually correct it.
Round 2

HR Interview

Interview Experience
This interview went really well for me – mainly because I had prepared really pretty well for questions to ask the company after going through their site and discussing it with my friends – so I had 4 good questions to ask them. What also helped me was that I could take 2 very big things off my resume to talk about when asked about my experience in a specific HR situation. After I mentioned the outline of my experience in both situations I was asked 5-6 more probing questions to find out more about the incident and I answered them pretty well.
Round 3

Case Study Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Explain case on the credit card industry.
Interview Experience
It involved a lot of calculations. There were 3 different credit card offers with different costs and profits and we had to choose the best offer for the company. I was told later that my formulation of the problem was good since I set it up and then just put the numbers in the same setup to get the answers.

    Interview Process
    Group Activity Case Study Interview Behavioural Interview
    Round 1

    Group Activity

    Interview Experience
    There was initially an interview of about 5 mins in which they asked me to describe a situation where I worked in a team.
    Round 2

    Case Study Interview

    Interview Experience
    Then there was a case study round. It was a slightly involved case on the credit card industry and involved a lot of
    calculations. There were 3 different credit card strategies with different rates of interest and credit limits and we had to choose the best strategy for the company. I came up with correct strategy and hence got through the first round. 

    The 2nd case was that of Dominos evaluating a new scheme wherein they would offer a 30% discount instead of 100%, in cases where the pizzas could not be delivered within 30 minutes. Next the discount was changed to 70%. I was asked to evaluate the on-time delivery that they can risk not to have in order to make the same profit as they make when they give 100% discount and have 90% on-time delivery. Then I was asked to plot a graph between on-time delivery and the discount offered and interpret it. It was there that I lost track and couldn't come up with the right conclusion. Nevertheless I was selected for the next round.
    Round 3

    Behavioural Interview

    Interview Experience
    It was a behavioral interview wherein I had to describe them 3 situations in detail. During the entire interview the interviewer kept writing something on the paper. The key to this round was choosing the right incidents and then describing each and every point in detail. It lasted for about 30 mins. Ideally there were to be only 2 rounds of case interview and one behavioral interview but I was again called for a 3rd case interview round. It was very similar to the 1st case except that the credit card company was replaced by a dish-tv one. This one didn't go very well as I was very much exhausted and hence faltered at several places.

        General Tips
        Don’t relax too much and do prepare religiously inspite of whether or not your wingie or close friend is taking placements seriously. Also, do help out your wing mates once you are done with yours. There is no better joy than seeing a close friend landing up a dream job. Most importantly, never lose hope. This comes from a 7.1 who failed to make into the shortlists of every company for internships and still landed a job within the first 3 hours on the first day. Just keep believing you’ll do well and you would.

          Interview

          Interview Experience
          Started with a “Tell me something about your-self question”. I believe it was just to set the ball rolling and was not evaluated. The interviewer then gave me a case question wherein I had to make a choice between a diesel and a petrol car. There were 3 parts to the question (some candidates were asked 1 / 2 as well). The first dealt with finding the breakeven point given the basic set of cost, fuel price and fuel consumption data. Next was to find breakeven considering the money was acquired at a certain rate of interest (bond/loan). Both these results involved basic calculation and I was comfortable with them. The final part was about calculating the breakeven, again, but this time considering depreciation. This is where I was caught off guard and though I did turn up with a figure, the interviewer was not completely satisfied.

            Skill Tips
            I was not hesitant and was reasonably confident while answering. What went wrong was perhaps the fact that I was caught unaware of how depreciation works and how it had to be included in the equation. I fumbled a lot with the equation and puzzled as to where to include terms for depreciation etc.
            General Tips
            Do get a basic background of the firm and also about terms in the related field.

              Interview Experience
              There was test which was purely data analysis and calculator was allowed. So the procedure that they follow is that first they shortlist 50 people and a small case interview is followed. The case I was asked was to calculate the change in the cost of a grocery store if it has changed its model from cash on delivery with a physical store to an online portal which has cash on delivery option. As I had practiced it already I took some time to give structure and then gave 3-4 reasons for change in cost and then he gave me some numbers based on which I had to calculate the break even time period or amount . But I think he expected a little bit different approach or was searching for a different solution as I wasn't selected for the final interview sessions. I think 22 people were selected for the final interview session out of which 2 people were finally selected in Cap One.
