I was interviewed on-campus at IIT Kharagpur for Consultant 1 role at EXL Service in Dec, 2016
Interview Process
Test Technical + HR Interview Technical + HR Interview
Round 1

Test

Duration
45 Minutes
No. of Questions
40 questions
Interview Experience
The test was conducted online by Cocubes. 20 questions were from Quant+DI, 10 from LR, and 10 from Verbal+RC. Out of some 600 students who took the test, around 80 students were selected for the next round.
Interview Tips
A sincere effort for CAT would definitely help you get through the test.
Round 2

Technical + HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Walk me through your resume.
  • Question 2: Internship: what you did, what you achieved and what you learned.
  • Question 3: Why analytics? Since you have a lot of things related to finance in your CV, why don't you go for finance?
  • Question 4: A lot of questions on probability and statistics. (Since I had projects and achievements related to that)
  • Question 5: What are your hobbies? (And then trying to give a guesstimate question related to the hobby. E.g. to estimate the fleet size of Air India, for someone who mentioned traveling as his hobby)
  • Question 6: Market entry case: Entering into noodles market. Should we enter, and if so, how to capture a high market share?
  • Question 7: Puzzles: 25 horses 5 tracks, Monty hall problem, 8-queen problem, Random Airplane Seats.
Interview Experience
Each round of interview covered case interview, guesstimates, puzzles and CV based questions. There was no separate HR round as such. Each round went for some 30-40 minutes.
Interview Tips
Walk the interviewer through your thought process while you are solving puzzles or guesstimates. It is always beneficial to practice a lot of puzzles from different sources and hence get a common puzzle in the interview than to solve a completely new puzzle on the day of the interview. Because practically, an average student can't solve any of the 4 above-mentioned puzzles in 2-3 minutes, if (s)he hasn't faced it earlier.
Round 3

Technical + HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Why EXL?
  • Question 2: Estimate the no. of Rs. 1000 notes in India before demonetization.
  • Question 3: Estimate the no. of people participated in Delhi Marathon.
  • Question 4: How would you estimate the distance between Delhi and Beijing?
Interview Experience
This round of interview was taken by a senior official. It was more of a stress interview, where I was being asked to come up with a number of different approaches to solving a given guesstimate question.
Interview Tips
Keep calm. They are concerned about your approach. Make sure you are communicating properly.

Interview Experience
Guesstimates and puzzles were asked in other panels. The guy in my panel asked about analytics project I did and the algorithm used. Afterwards he asked which topics I am proficient in. I did an Applied Time Series Analysis course and have experience in R. So he asked questions on ARIMA modelling and some functions in R. (dplyr package). Before going to the interview I only prepared for puzzles and guesstimates but not case studies. But he asked me a case study about the detection of fraud credit card transactions in a bank. I remained calm and cool without going into depression and suggested him some measures. Since the interviewer was also not looking for complex answers he got convinced with my answer. Then he asked me whether I have any questions.
Interview Tips
Be thorough with your resume. Prepare puzzles and guesstimates. Case studies are simple. Just reading Case in point is more than sufficient. Practice guesstimates with your friends in free time everyday. Do the puzzles in 'Heard on the street'

Interview Process
Test Interview Interview Interview
Round 1

Test

Duration
45 Minutes
No. of Questions
40 questions
Test Sections
  • Section 1: Aptitude Test (Mathematical ability, Reasoning and Verbal ability)
Interview Experience
Questions are not difficult, Time management is very important. It was very well designed test our overall abilities and communication skills. Test was online conducted by cocubes. Out of 220+ students who attempted test, only 27 were selected to next round. I expected them to select some 70-80 after 1st round.
Interview Tips
Questions carry 1/3rd negative marks. Don't try to answer questions in order, find out easy questions and solve them first, as I said earlier, Time management is very important. I attempted arithmetic reasoning first, English (Verbal ability) next and then mathematical ability.
Round 2

Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Doors were numbered from 1-100 and first time I close all doors next I open doors with numbers that are multiples of 2 next I close doors numbered with multiples of 3 and so on upto 100th time. After the 100th time which doors are open
  • Question 2: If I have 333 digits to number pages of a book, How many pages can I number ?
Interview Experience
I focused more on my approach to solve the puzzle and that paid off. I didn't prepare for puzzles either so I tried to solve it in my own way and that might have impressed the interviewer. Some other questions like how many benches are there in this campus ? and If I wanted to start a Food center in the campus, How many customers can I expect etc questions were asked. These questions don't have any perfect answer but they see the way in which you attempt and explain it convincingly.
Interview Tips
Be confident. If they ask anything, answer properly so If they ask questions like How many customers can I expect a day after starting a food court in your college, don't just give any random number, try to do some math and give a number so that you can explain why you gave that number .
Round 3

Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Many questions were asked like why are you joining this company ?
  • Question 2: what makes you stand out from the other candidates?
  • Question 3: What is your friends opinion on you ?
  • Question 4: If I have to sell a new phone to a customer that is very costly, how will you approach the customer?
  • Question 5: If your Manager gives you a task that can't be done what will you do ? Will you say directly that it can't be done or Will you waste time even though you know that it can't be done.
  • Question 6: What are your future plans and how our organization helps you in achieving those?
  • Question 7: Are you flexible to work in every type of work environment ?
  • Question 8: What do you do in your leisure times ?
Interview Experience
This Interview is one of the best Interview Experiences I had. I was Interviewed by one of the senior vice presidents of the company. I enjoyed answering it. I know my strengths and weaknesses and I was frank to state my weaknesses and explained how I will over come them in my work place and all. I was asked a lot of questions and some times the interviewer twisted questions to see If I'm answering sincerely or just giving fake answers to the questions. This interview went so well that I was sure of my selection after this round.



And Interestingly, of the 27 members that were selected to 1st round of Interviews, I was 10th one as names were written alphabet wise. But I was the first one to be called out for 2nd round Interview.
Interview Tips
Be clear and Confident with your answers. Answer after thinking for a while, they won't expect instant answers. Remember what you have answered as they might ask the same question again and you might get caught answering differently ( This happens when you fake your experiences and answers). Be frank, Sincere. You know your strengths and try to state your strengths to them (They might not ask you to say your strengths, you have to include them in some answers). Think different and answer in a way that most others won't.
Round 4

Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: How can you fit in our work environment ?
  • Question 2: Why EXL?
  • Question 3: Job or MBA ?
Interview Experience
As I was confident of my selection after 2nd round of Interview, I stuck to my plans and answered well. I think this round was just to see If I would Join the company or not.
Interview Tips
Stick to what you have answered earlier, they might compel you to change your answers just to see If you are confident with your answers. Remember that Raju's Interview in 3 Idiots ? He will be asked to be more diplomatic but he rejects that Idea .. My Interview was also similar.

Skill Tips
Answers which you read in internet are not your experiences, so they aren't to be copied. Assess yourself and your answers have to reflect your experiences. I didn't prepare anything for Campus placements as I was confident of my skills. I took time in analyzing myself and the way in which I have to project myself in Interviews. I didn't prepare for GD's and PI's .

General Tips
Take the interview in the direction where you want. Tell them your interest right at the start, so that they can grill you on that only. There were no questions on minor training or projects. There was nothing on technical part as well. Throw in your AIEEE/JEE MAINS/Advanced rank, that was the time when you were at your best and it may escape you out of the problem. It did in my case. He started grilling me on my low CGPA (lowest out of selected candidates), low 12th%, I just threw my AIEEE rank and I was placed.
Funny Moments
Well there were many.<br />
During the first HR interview, they asked me why do you want to join a consultancy company when you are an engineer? I said, engineers can do anything and why do you visit our campus when you want consultants.<br />
