HUL Supply chain interview

, 8.6k views
Ujjawal RahangdaleFresherSelected
Application
I was interviewed on-campus at IIT Kharagpur for Supply chain role at HUL
Interview Process
Resume Shortlist Group Discussion Technical Interview HR Interview
Round 1

Resume Shortlist

Interview Experience
Its a form which takes in details both factual and personal in the form of anecdotes, essentially a very very concise description of your past experiences at work and how they connect with the qualities required at the job.
Interview Tips
Being genuine here will save from early elimination since there's a long way forward solely based on your answers.
Never give any sort of location preferences when asked, if you are seriously interested!
Touch all key areas in your profile never underestimate any one of them.
Round 2

Group Discussion

Duration
5+15 Minutes
Group Discussion Topic
Technology selection for production Upgrade
Interview Experience
The GD group consisted of all familiar faces which helped in breaking the tension, although I didn't start/direct, I spoke about 3-4 points which I thought were important factors in decision making.
Interview Tips
A tiniest bit of unpredictability lies as always in case of GDs but ensure these-Quality of points put forward (matters more than the quantity)
Show initiative to let others speak as well (Just in case)
Never compromise with key moral conflict areas and don't presume or arrive at a conclusion earlier because it might so happen that you may end up defending yourself for the rest of GD hence not being able to put good points on board.
Round 3

Technical Interview

Interview Experience
The best part of the process I believe because the controls are given to you the second PI begins which means every PI has a different story.
Interview Tips
Communication skills are of utmost importance.
Know your projects and keep concepts at fingertips because a minute or two is what you get to convince the interviewer whether you actually know what you did.
For a MechE student, Revise basics of key department subjects like Applied Thermo-Fluids (Pumps, Condensers, Cooling Towers, boilers, etc.)
Round 4

HR Interview

Interview Experience
Every level is an elimination round with the trickiest one as last. This is taken by a very senior level manager with around 10 years of experience so he/she knows what he wants and grills everyone on those parameters (who you are as a person). I couldn't know then but when I came out, people told me it lasted for about an hour (50 minutes or so).
Interview Tips
Expect tricky questions both basic technical and HR like -
What is the definition of fun for you? Why supply chain management? etc.
Hold yourself in a very composed manner and know when to stop and pull back in an interview.
Believing that you are the ideal candidate is the first step to convince someone else. Explore Why?

    HUL Management trainee interview

    I was interviewed on-campus at IIT Madras for Management trainee role at HUL
    Interview Process
    Resume Shortlist Test Group Discussion HR Interview Other Interview Resume Shortlist
    Round 1

    Resume Shortlist

    Interview Experience
    This is the most important part of the placement procedure. All your shortlists are based on how well you can portray what you’ve done in insti and before. Start writing your resume as soon as possible, the first deadline is typically somewhere in October and a resume generally needs 8-10 revisions.
    Interview Tips
    1. Start every line with an action verb.
    2. Keep the no. of words to a minimum.
    3. Remove all the unnecessary words you can. Nobody likes reading stories.
    4. Each point should show impact. More than what you’ve done, you should tell them how differently you’ve done it and how it made a difference to the organization and team you worked for. (Common misconception is that impact is only in terms of numbers, this is not the case). I agree this can get very difficult but this is what differentiates and ordinary resume from an extra-ordinary one. So think!
    5. Finally, keep the technical part as simple and coherent as possible. Remember an HR is going to be reading your resume.
    6. Exaggeration is fine. Say you increased the number of events from 3 to 6. It is okay to write that you brought about a 100% increase in the number of events. But at the same time NEVER write anything in your resume which you cannot explain or substantiate with examples. This gives a very bad impression to the company.
    Round 2

    Round 3

    Group Discussion

    Interview Experience
    This is a normal round with a given topic.
    Round 4

    HR Interview

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: Tell me about yourself.
    • Question 2: Your long term and short term goals?
    • Question 3: Based on leadership instance?
    Interview Experience
    This is a must round in every company.
    Interview Tips
    An excellent way of preparing this is writing everything down as experiences. Begin from your school days and think about any activity you’ve been part of or anything you’ve mentioned in your resume. Write down three points about what you did as part of the team or project and three points about what you learnt from it. This really helps. Especially the writing down part, since you can’t remember everything you thought about. This becomes a ready reference just a day or two before your interviews. Do not make the mistake of not preparing enough for HR.
    This is as important as any other preparation you have to do for placements. And WRITE stuff down!"
    Round 5

    Other Interview

    Interview Experience
    This was a phone interview. Two people on a conference with me. One guy was asking me only core questions randomly from all subjects ranging from IC engines to fluid mechanics. The other guy was asking me about my previous internship and about how my work affected the factory. They also asked me to give examples from personal life, where I exhibited leadership skills etc. This interview went on for about 45 minutes.

      Interview Tips
      Do not choose topics that you are not entirely thorough with. Also,even if the interviewer asks about the previous company's personal details, beyond a stage, do not divulge. They wouldn’t want you doing the same with their company.

      Interview Tips
      ​prepare for a focussed set of companies. Aiming efforts at multiple companies will prove hazardous. Have a clear priority sorted out.

      Round 1

      Case Study Interview

      Interview Questions
      • Question 1: How can you reduce cost of an ice-cream factory based in Russia?
      • Question 2: How can you convince big bazar to increase your product’s shelf space?
      • Question 3: Questions around supply chain –variation in distribution, discount etc. (Note: If you haven’t taken LSCM, do take the notes from your friend and understand the key concepts –an overview should be good enough)
      • Question 4: How can you reduce thecost of production without changing the variable cost?
      Interview Experience
      I had a good time with Interviewers. They put you at ease while talking to you and help you at times (not always!). Like any other interview, just stay calm and think of all possible answers to questions asked.
      Interview Tips
      Don’t fret about any particular answer but focus on your structure –the way you think and the way you present your answers to the interviewer.For ice cream factory one could think of VC, FC which include utilities, packaging, inventory, inbound/outbound etc. The interviewer at times provides more information in between answers to guide you(but don’t wait for it).Shelf space and LSCM concepts revolve around what causes variation in supply chain, incentive management and factory location/management [ If you know your LSCM well you’ll sail through such questions.

      Initial shortlisting was done on the basis of resume.
      Round 2

      Group Discussion

      Interview Experience
      There was a group discussion based on the general pattern.
      Round 3

      Technical Interview

      Interview Experience
      My subjects, knowledge, skills were tested very less compared to the others. It all depends on the direction you wanted to drive your interview in. I focused on my projects and junkyard wars to show my technical skills and
      immediately steered into the profile they were offering which is managerial profile which included sales, marketing and operation together. Having prepared for other FMCG companies earlier, I spoke about operation with ease and this was my selling point. I brushed up on marketing and spoke about sustainability and green technology campaigns the company was working on.
      Round 4

      HR Interview

      Interview Experience
      There was no specific HR round. Few questions about the place I live, languages , etc.
      Interview Tips
      They were looking for people with an all-round personality. They let me drive the interview in the direction I wanted. It was more of a conversation than a question-answer session for me

      Skills Tested

        Skill Tips
        I prepared mainly by aiming at FMCG companies. Industrial engineering brush up. Projects/Interns/HR questions are very important. You never know when a core ques turns up, so brushed up courses.<br /> <br /> I think I got selected because I spoke at length on how I was perfectly suited for the profile they were offering. I showed examples for each of operations, sales and marketing. Enthusiasm about the company, knowing more about the company and its activities helped me. I put fight for FMCG's and core companies mostly. I was thorough with Industrial Engineering minor. I knew in and out about what was written in the resume. Brushing up core courses is a must.
        General Tips
        I started in August. I was preparing for CAT in parallel too. Start core prep early because there is very little time towards the end. Do not prepare for every company that exists. Prioritize the companies depending on your interests. Prepare well for these companies.

        Round 2

        GROUP DISCUSSION

        Interview Experience
        Students are shortlisted on the basis of form (HUL doesn’t ask for resumes). Then, GDs are conducted in a group of 8-10. The topics are like case-studies which highlight some problem being faced by an organization and you need to come up with some solution for the same.
        Round 3

        TECHNICAL + HR INTERVIEW

        Interview Experience
        Students are further shortlisted after the GD for final interview. One should be thorough with his resume and should be in a position to explain the internships well. I encountered a lot of situation based questions in which I was asked to come up with solution for some typical problems faced in a factory.

        2. Have a knowledge about the company you are applying to. This reflects your motivation and seriousness towards the company.<br />
        Don’ts :<br />
        1. Resume, aptitude and GD should be done with good time in hand as they can’t be improved over night.<br />
        <br />
        Apart from the standard things, I would advise that confidence and smile goes a long way.<br />
        Preparation of resume, aptitude, GDs, technical part is very important but I believe that at the end, communicating yourself well is the most important thing.
