Interview Process
Case Study Interview Case Study Interview
Round 1

Case Study Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: A retailer needs to set up warehouses. Should he hire a logistics provider or should he do it himself. How would you analyse the same? If he cannot find a good enough logistics provider, what should he do?
Interview Experience
I said I would analyse the costs, but as per my personal experience, until and unless the retailer intends to get into the logistics business, he should hire an external logistics provider, since it makes sense to concentrate in the core, and outsource the non-core activities.
Round 2

Case Study Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: How would you measure the number of windows in Delhi
Interview Experience
I said I would take the population of Delhi and find out the working population and the non-working population. For the non-working, I would estimate the number of households taking an average of 4 people per household. And then an estimate on the number of windows per house. Taking the number of working people, I would further divide them into people working in different sizes of workplaces, and then estimate the no of establishments and the no of windows in each establishment.
Interview Tips
Be confident.

Case Study Interview
Round 1

Case Study Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Devise entry strategy for a conveyer belts manufacturer.
Interview Experience
My case discussion lasted for 5 minutes. He asked me the question. I asked them two questions to get a hang of the industry/objective. Then I told them my approach for solving the problem and summarized by describing my structure.
I think they liked freshness of my approach. Typically people ask a lot of questions and often the process gets slowed down or becomes uninteresting. I touched upon the entire set of important points and summarized it quickly.
Interview Tips
1. Don’t over-prepare for case interviews. I had read first chapter of ‘Case in point’ to understand different types of cases. I had done only 3 – 5 cases myself but observed around 10 cases.
2. Interviewers appreciate crisp and comprehensive communication.
3. Be thorough with your resume and be comfortable talking about its relevance to the vertical you are targeting.
4. Try to understand the background of the interviewer and gauge his expectation from your interview.
5. Utilize the opportunities to demonstrate the value you bring to the table.
6. Stay calm, focused and confident

Interview Process
HR Interview
Round 1

HR Interview

Interview Experience
Most of the questions were around school education as E&Y asked candidates to fill up forms on schooling. I was also asked to state my understanding of role. This led to further questioning on verticals I would like to work on? I guess candidate was expected to clearly state his/her choice and later on show the sound understanding of that vertical. To gauge some general awareness I was asked to give my views on latest boom in retailing and give the name of one company which would win in long run (with reason). I answered this question using some macroeconomic model and quoted Reliance as the clear winner.
Interview Tips
Stay calm and be yourself.
