About Swiggy

Swiggy is a food ordering and delivery company based out of Bangalore, India.

A single window for ordering from a wide range of restaurants, we have our own exclusive fleet of delivery personnel to pickup orders from restaurants and deliver it to customers . Having our own fleet gives us the flexibility to offer customers a no minimum order policy on any restaurant and accept online payments for all partner restaurants that we work with.

Round 3

HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: famous gold puzzle
  • Question 2: case study related: sales were increasing but the monthly profits were falling.
  • Question 3: problem identification - how to reduce per delivery cost from Rs. 75 (hypothetical value).
Interview Experience
We had 3 rounds of interview - first HR followed by two case study rounds. There were three panellist, one HR and the other two technical ones.

First round was specificaly HR round. They asked puzzles as well for this round. But even in the subsequent rounds, they didn't limit themselves to case studies but asked a few basic introduction questions as well. Some standard puzzles were asked in this round - a famous gold puzzle was asked to me. When I told that I know the answer, then they didn't grill me on it. The panellist were insti guys only - so questions like 'Why Saarang coreship ?' and 'Why choosing this track ?' were asked. The HR round also had a bit of senior junior interaction taste - question like 'Most interesting thing in insti' was asked. The 2nd and 3rd round were case study rounds both related to food-delivery only, Swiggy being related to that field. 1st one was a classic case study - sales were increasing but the monthly profits were falling. I solved it and gave suggestions to them. They were asking for data to support our claim. Out of 20-25 students from the first round, only 4 went to 2nd round and subsequently 3 to the 3rd round. 3rd round case study was about problem identification - how to reduce per delivery cost from Rs. 75 (hypothetical value). This was an open ended question and so was different from the first case study.


Interview Tips
As it is a startup so I expected questions broadly related to 3 categories - HR, puzzles, and case studies. For puzzles and case studies - Day 1.0 is the book. Casing point is the book from which you can get even more difficult case studies. I also found a very good link in Quora - in which all the possible puzzles were given. Some HR questions like 'Why startup ?' & 'Why not the convenional company ?' were expected. I reffered to websites like 'themuse.com' for career planning which was very useful.
