I was interviewed on-campus at NIT Warangal for CCCL
Test Technical Interview HR Interview
- Section 1: Aptitude Test
- Section 2: Technical
The aptitute test was an online test multiple choice with negative marking. The question were similar to those asked in GATE. There were purely technical questions, mostly from concrete technology, design of structures (codal provisions) and also from geotechnical subjects. There were no questions from any water resources subjects. From surveying there was one question worth 15 marks (3.75 negative marking). There were also some simple questions based on geometry (area, volume etc.)
Some basic questions from concrete technology were asked. The interview was very easy compared to the aptitude test. If marks in apti are good, chances of being selected are very high. The interviewer asked me my favourite subject and again asked some very basic questions from it.
The selection was mainly based on the 90 minute online aptitude test. The cutoff for shortlisting was high and most people were eliminated here itself. The personal interview was easy, lasted about 5 minutes. Even though I answered with an honest "I don't know" to most of the technical questions based on codal provisions, I was selected. So one can infer that getting good marks in the aptitude test and being confident and honest is the key to this job. I found the aptitude test to be very good, the standard was higher than any other company so far. If one knows the IS codal provisions well and is confident in the interview, getting this job is easy enough.
