Flipkart Graduate trainee interview
I was interviewed on-campus at IIT Kharagpur for Graduate trainee role at Flipkart
Group Discussion Guesstimate Interview Case Study Interview
Each and every one was given sufficient time to express their opinions but since there are more than 100 guys you are competing with, do try to make an impression somewhere on the mind of the recruiter.
Nothing specifically, similar to the cliche GDs that all the other firms take but the only point to be kept in mind in case of Flipkart is, from the list of 120 odd people it is gonna come down to 50. So, try to keep that in mind.
- Question 1: Demand of TVs next year? Specify one 'good' and one 'bad' approach.
It was pretty chilled out, since they will try to help you all along. Difficulty level was okayish, nothing to be afraid of. Slight CV grilling and basic HR questions too were covered in this round. No monsters there.
Make use of the paper they give you. try to be as graphically illustrative as possible. Think out loud. Make them move along with you, hence if you get stuck up they will be able to help you instantly, saving you some time. Also, this will keep them involved and interested in you.
Case Study Interview
- Question 1: What would you suggest Kishore Biyani against us (Flipkart) to stay in competition?

Keep yourself updated. If you are reading ET regularly and have a fair idea about the case analysis strategies, it will be walk through the cake.
