ITC Interview questions


ITC Technical management interview

AnonymousFresherNot Selected
I was interviewed on-campus for Technical management role at ITC in Aug, 2016
Interview Process
Resume Shortlist Group Discussion Technical Interview Technical + HR Interview
Round 1

Resume Shortlist

Interview Experience
Generally, the people with a CPI of 8+ were shortlisted, with a little importance to other CV points.
Round 2

Group Discussion

30 Minutes
Group Discussion Topic
Situational GD. Not a fixed one liner topic.
Interview Experience
The GD was of 30 minutes. First 5 minutes were meant to have a look on the details and topic of discussion. Next 20 minutes to discuss. And last 5 minutes to conclude.Generally, the topic goes on like:" An airplane crashed in Amazon forests. The passengers have to move on themselves to find their way out of the jungle. 15 things are available on the plane. The list goes on as: rope, matchbox, machete, compass, water-bottle, medicine, kerosene, candies, etc. Put the above listed things in decreasing order of their priority." A group of 5 to 6 people were taken for each GD. I passed the GD round. It mostly depends on how much you can speak and lead the discussion in your direction. 4 out of 6 were selected from our group. The reason was that we got a conclusion of our discussion which went on to show our team work.
Interview Tips
1) Try to start the GD yourself. it shows your leadership quality.
2) Never start speaking when someone is already speaking. Keep the discussion a healthy one, and don't turn it into an arguement.
3) Speak logical points. Don't speak rubbish just for the sake of speaking.
4) Don't be too gullible. Take a stand and maintain it as far as it is reasonable.
5) Don't just speak. Try to involve all the people in discussion and 'explain' your points to them to convince them. That again shows how good a team leader you will be.
6) Be presentable.

They asked about my 2nd year internship project. Then they moved on to electrical sciences, where there were some basic to analytical questions. They took an experiment which I did lately and asked on the detailed concepts involved. All in all it was quite a chill interview.
Interview Tips
1) If you tell a subject as a favourite, make sure you know about it.
2) Telling about yourself is the perfect opportunity to turn the interview to your side. If you like a particular subject, mention how you came to like it, Mention something interesting which you did using that subject. If you have done an interesting project,mention it in details, so that the interviewer focuses in that only for the next 15 minutes.
3) Don't try to fool them. They know better.
