Round 1

Test

Duration
30 Minutes
No. of Questions
45 questions
Test Sections
  • Section 1: Written
Interview Experience
Most of the questions were from DI and Quant. It was a speed test. The questions were easy, just that one had to do the maximum number of questions to qualify.
Interview Tips
CAT preparation will help one to breeze through the test.
Round 2

Other Interview

Interview Experience
It was a 20-minute one to one interview.
It started with the normal question “Tell me about yourself”. I had done my internship in one of the analytics firms, so she was interested in my project. I explained the work and she seemed impressed.
Round 3

Other Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: In an urn there are 100 balls. 60 white, 40 black, 50 spotted 50 non-spotted. What is the probability that a white ball chosen at random will be spotted?
Interview Experience
Again, it was a 20-minute one to one round. The interviewer was interested in my internship project and asked me to explain it.
A few puzzles like the one mentioned were also asked.
Round 4

HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Tell me about yourself which is not mentioned in your resume.
  • Question 2: Why Citigroup?
Interview Experience
This interview was also a 20-minute one to round.
Another subsidiary of Citigroup had visited the campus the earlier day so she asked me if I had applied for it, I told her “No.” She asked “why ?” .. then I told her “I have my seniors at Citigroup and would love to work with them.” She seemed quite
impressed. She took the names of the seniors. (So if you have seniors in a company who know you, you can always mention their names. It shows you have a keen interest towards the company).

For the non Maths students there was a common question that, “If you were so interested in Maths (Analytics) why you didn’t choose Mathematics and Computing as your branch?”
Round 5

Other Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: You did well in the test. So did you appear for CAT?
  • Question 2: What are your plans for higher studies?
  • Question 3: Suppose we do not offer you a job, then what?
  • Question 4: Where do you see yourself 3 years from now? 10 years from now?
  • Question 5: One trait you would like to improve upon
  • Question 6: Why not a PhD?
Interview Experience
It was a 30-minute panel interview. This was a puzzle cum HR interview where all my previous interviewers were present.
Interview Tips
From my experience I could feel they were for recruiting genuinely interested candidates, also recruiting someone who was good at problem solving.

    General Tips
    I would like to start this article by telling you something about your major concern, and that is “Will this economic crisis has a telling effect on your job prospects ?”. And the answer is both Yes and No. I am a 5th year Mathematics student and have closely seen the placements of 3 batches and from my experience, I can surely say that “One who prepares well , gets through, No matter how tough the situation is". It happened with my batch and your batch won’t be an exception (Unless a catastrophe happens).Dilemma: Most of you guys sitting for placement shall be in your 7th semester which is considered to be one of the most hectic of all the semesters. Many of you might be preparing for CAT, others for GRE, some of you would have got a tough guide for your final year project. So you need to prioritize things. You need to think it through; “A Realistic Self Analysis” always helps. I’ll share what I did. I did join coaching classes for CAT but my first priority always was placements and accordingly I planned and executed things. Getting a 99+ percentile and then clearing the GD and PI’s was too much of a risk for me to take. So this might be one of the better times to go for your MBA but always have other options ready just in case.Resume for Analytics Companies:Most of the analytics companies have a lot of Statistical Analysis and Data Management work. So, candidates having an experience in Data handling are preferred. If some project of yours involved Data Handling, mention it in detail. If you have done some of the applied Statistics courses in the Maths/IME department, mention it in your resume.

If possible, even submit the assignments and give the quizzes. A programming language cannot be learned just by reading a book or watching videos. You have to practice and do somehands-on exercises.While preparing for Puzzles and coding questions, do not directly go to the solution, always make an attempt, scribble your thoughts on a piece of paper.Participate in competitions (for both core and non-core), you ll learn a lot through such experiences than what you learn from textbooks.

      General Tips
      1) Have a look at your Resume. Just make sure you know what you have mentioned in it.<br />
      2) Go through your Internships and Academic Projects carefully as sometimes Interview are only based on them.<br />
      3) Presentation is more important than knowledge. Even if you know all the questions but are not able to deliver/express in from of interview than your knowledge is of no use.<br />
      4) No need to take tension how the interviewer will behave with you. They also know your mental state and they initially try to make you comfortable with them. So relax and keep calm.<br />
      Since 72 students were shortlisted for interviews, So it was quite challenging to make a way for yourself.For me it was exhausting because I was the last one to be interview in my slot. I was called at around 9:30 am at T&P but I had my interview at 4:30 pm. Till then I was really bored , exhausted and also I was loosing my calm.

      The test had two sections, i.e, aptitude and coding(two questions). Around 10 and 20 students were selected after this round for pune and chennai branch respectively.
      Round 2

      Technical Interview

      Interview Experience
      I was from electrical background so I had more questions about electrical, projects, puzzles..etc, They didn't ask more questions on coding though it was for job profile.They just expect you to know what you have learnt well.
      Round 3

      HR Interview

      Interview Experience
      I had a tough time in the HR round as I was not able to completely convince them about the reason why I want to join for an IT profile when I have no projects related to it to prove my interest.There were general questions like why citicorp, strengths/weakness, resume based question..etc.

      Skill Tips
      Don't panic, you needn't know everything. Just be sure and confident about what you speak. No special preparation required. But just know what you have done in three years atleast fairly well as not knowing electrical after studying it for three long years would give a wrong impression about your ability to learn and grasp things.

      The test was for two and half hours where 1 hour was for general aptitude, 1 hr was for coding aptitude(either on java or C or C++as you choose) and 1/2 an hour for two coding questions.
      Round 2

      Technical Interview

      Interview Experience
      In technical round they asked puzzles, aptitude questions and basic C coding. I was asked to write the code for two questions(one was on sort and search) and was asked the logic of two questions.They asked basics of linked lists, stacks, queues. Infact they were not very interested in the syntax and were pressing on the logic

      Skills Tested

      Skill Tips
      Learn basics of coding from books . Aptitude can be done from sites likes geeks for geeks, etc. The level of aptitude is not very high and infact the coding aptitude is also theoretical and does not involve in depth knowledge.
      General Tips
      Being a non software branch students is not at all a problem. The company took 4 interns where 3 were from core branches. The fact that we had to work in JAVA and most of us didn't know JAVA, the company only looks for aptitude and ability to learn. So if you don't know anything, tell frankly that you don't know that part, rather than guessing. Be thorough with what you know and confidentially answer all the questions.<br />
      Also do not be tensed and take things lightly, if the interviewer is joking. Be candid.
