Round 3

Resume Shortlist

Interview Experience
The shortlist came only 3-4 hrs before the commencement of interviews so I didn’t have enough time to prepare anything extra after the list was forwarded.
Round 4

HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Tell me about yourself .
  • Question 2: Why Bosch ?
  • Question 3: Were you interviewed in any other company ?
  • Question 4: Will you be able to manage working/living away from home ?
  • Question 5: Strengths and Weaknesses.
Round 5

Technical Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: What did you do at Gtec, Whirlpool (Summer intern) ?
  • Question 2: What is your interest area ?
  • Question 3: Pressure variation in an IC engine
  • Question 4: Working of a spark/ignition plug
  • Question 5: Force analysis of a spark plug
  • Question 6: Stresses in pure bending and its variation over the length
  • Question 7: Detailed drawing of a rectangular block in any projection with dimensions, tolerances, surface finish etc.
Interview Experience
The interviewee had a cross-sectional diagram of a fuel injector and there was a graph plotted versus time against it, showing the variation of fuel pressure at 2 places, positions of movable parts in the plug, etc based on which he asked me to tell how the fuel injector worked. He later also asked me force analysis of a movable rod in the injector. Initially, he was mainly asking me the questions related to engines though I told him that my interest area is FEM and simulations. Once my interview was over and I moved out, after 2-3 minutes he again called me back and this time he asked me technical questions related to my interest area only. I answered almost all questions related to engines correctly, so you need to be prepared to answer questions which are not your interest area. I failed to answer a question about variation of stresses over the length of a bended circular beam and I also said that I am not good at fluid mechanics when he asked me about it.

    General Tips
    Do’s :

    1) Revise all courses well beforehand.

    2) Get your resumes reviewed by others or at least review it yourself multiple times and ensure that there are at least no spelling or grammatical mistakes.

    3) Be prepared to answer any questions related to any software/concept/mechanism mentioned in your resume.

    4) Be prepared to answer questions like Tell me about yourself, why this company, why should we choose you/what sets you apart compared to others etc.

    5) Ask seniors what all to prepare for specific companies you are targeting.



    Don’ts :

    1) Don’t target everything that comes. If you don’t get specific to what kind of job you want you may end up not being prepared for either of them.

    2) Don’t claim software's or concepts that you don’t know well or haven’t contributed anything to in your resume.

    3) Don’t by heart answers to obvious questions word to word. Just make up the points and frame it on spot.

    4) Don’t think that because of poor CPI you don’t have any chance. Preparation matters a lot. People with low CPI but good preparation get placed on day 1.

    Round 1

    Test

    Test Sections
      Round 2

      Group Discussion

      Duration
      30 Minutes
      Group Discussion Topic
      A case study was given where we had to determine which is the best form of energy for a particular village
      Interview Experience
      ITC usually does case GDs. The cases are fun and pretty interesting. You would be in a group of 8-10 people and you would be given a case on which your group has to come to a conclusion in 30 mins. In our case the GD centred around a village. Where the village was facing a lot many challenges with industries shutting down, people deserting the village etc. And most of them had the root cause to the lack of power. And so the group had to come to a conclusion as to which source of energy would be the best feasible for the village based on certain things that were mentioned there in the case,
      Interview Tips
      GD there are three tips: - Either start the discussion if you know the topic well. - Or play the role of a moderator and quip in with some important points- Or succinctly summarise all the points everyone mentioned and conclude them in a beautiful way explaining the direction in which the group inclines if you do not have much information on the topic. It is pretty important that the group reaches to a consensus.
      Round 3

      Interview

      Interview Questions
      • Question 1: Six sigma analysis
      • Question 2: Quality sampling
      Interview Experience
      ITC conducts interviews way early on Dec 1. Typically around 6:30 am the interviews start. So I was pretty exhausted by being on a stretch of 3 night outs with MTP report submission, MTP presentation, and then all tests and GDs for companies. On Nov 30th as well the interviews and Gds started and it was going on till Dec 1 5 am for me. Then ITC interview was at 7 am in the morning. Interviewers were 5-7 years experienced people. Questions were related to my internship and some core courses. I answered internship related questions well. Screwed up once on a technical question. Usually they would start with one concept and then grill you in depth to understand your expertise in that.
      Interview Tips
      - Brush up your core concepts- You should be thorough with your internship stuff
      Round 4

      Interview

      Interview Questions
      • Question 1: Introduction
      • Question 2: Why ITC ?
      • Question 3: Why not startup ?
      Interview Experience
      The HR interviewers were 25 years experienced. Pretty chill people. Asked me questions around why ITC and why not a startup ? etc.Pretty usual set of questions.
      Interview Tips
      Be calm. Read 64 interview questions pdf. Usually available on institute LAN

        Test Interview
        Round 1

        Test

        Test Sections
          Interview Experience
          CGPA cut-off: 7. The test had two parts. The level of the questions in the first part was very easy and do not require GRE or CAT skills. It had questions on verbal ability (readinc comprehension and vocabulary) and Math (time- work problems, arithmetic, percentages etc). The second part had questions related to Mechanical Engineering. It was slightly tough having a wide range of questions from Kinematics, design of machine elements, fluids , and thermodynamics .However, one can easily crack the test.
          Interview Tips
          Don’t leave the questions unaswered as there is no negative marking.
          Round 2

          Interview

          Interview Experience
          Around 60 students were shortlisted for the interview .There was only one round of interview which had both HR and technical questions. The interviewers were very friendly. The interview went on for approximately forty minutes. They started by asking me about my hometown, family, interests etc. Few question were: “Tell me about yourself”, “Describe your hometown”, “Why do u want to join Bosch and what do you know about it”, “Why won’t you go for MS or PhD”. The rest of the interview process was about the projects and internships and a few basic concepts of Mechanical Engineering. Each student was asked questions from different topics depending on the projects he was involved in. Basic questions I was asked : “What is casting”, “What is forming”, “How is a gear manufactured”, “What is the profile oF the gears used and why”. Apart from these, afew things about CRDi technology were asked.
          Interview Tips
          Being a part of technology events in the hall will help a lot during the interview process. Google about ABS, CRDi, bearings, gears etc and study the “Thermodynamic cycles” from any thermodynamics book before the interview. Be confident.Never create an impression that you are a research orientated guy and will be going for MS or PhD. Do not panic. Do not try to bluff - they are experienced people and will find it out. Prepare very thoroughly about the projects. Learn about recent developments in the automobile sector (any technology developed by Bosch). Always smile .

            General Tips
            Having a CGPA>8 will enhance your chances. In mechanical, almost all the students who got selected had a CGPA of around 8.5. Mine was 8.4. However, Class X and Class XII percentages do not matter.

            Internships in automobile industries definitely help. My sophomore intern was at Tata Motors Ltd. which caught the interviewer’s attention. The interview was guided by the project done by me at Tata Motors. Having a few academic projects also helps. Generally, they ask about projects mentioned in the CV. So, it’s better to be prepared about any project you may have done. Knowledge of the auto-sector is a must. Learn about recent developments in this sector.

            Interview

            Interview Experience
            Interview lasted for 50 minutes. I was grilled on the two internships that I had done during last two summers. And about 15 minutes of grilling on a self study course -CNC Machining just because I happened to be the class rep. There was a single guy questioning and not a panel which is good in some ways. He asked me if I had good quantitative skills. I replied yes. And then he asked a lot of math puzzles. Nothing too tough.
            Interview Tips
            Just go through placement materials. Make sure you have a core resume for and you are thorough with everything you have written. Be prepared for anything. Learn the basics of important topic and practice some online core tests.SoM, IC engines, Heat Transfer, Thermodynamics, Mantech, TurboMachinery should be prepared properly . And also, be perfect on the projects and intern described in the resume.

            Skill Tips
            I think I was selected because of my performance in both the rounds. Throughout both the interviews they were more concerned about leading and managing people. In my case my PORs helped me, to answer those questions by giving suitable examples and confident answers. They also looked for manufacturing profile. So projects related to manufacturing sector will help you in the interview.

              Interview Experience
              There were two rounds of interview ; 30min for Tech and 10 min HR.
              Interview Tips
              If you are in ED they will test your basic design skills. They showed a CAD drawing and asking the meaning of symbols, then they asked questions related to general designs available in our surroundings like why is that sewage hole round on the ground why not square or others. If you are in Mechanical, they will ask u core Mech subjects. So please first prepare very well subjects related to your respective interns. A whole interview can be drawn on that. In my case it was IC engine so I answered all the questions related to it and that didn't allow them to ask in any other topic.
              Round 4

              Interview

              Interview Questions
              • Question 1: What are your strengths, weaknesses..?
              • Question 2: What irritates you most..?
              • Question 3: What do you do in such situations..?
              • Question 4: Are you a leader or a follower...?
              • Question 5: Which one is good
              Interview Experience
              It was gen. All HR rounds just want to test how much positive you are in life, whether you will leave the company soon.
              Interview Tips
              Be prepared with answers beforehand. The answers to all the above questions should be "depends on the
              situation" and describe them in which situation u will choose which one. PS: if it’s a panel where HR is also there, they will try to excite you by asking gen questions like which team you support in IPL, do u have any gf etc. to make you lite, then again shoot you with some questions. Please don’t get deviated by those.

                Mock tests, Aimcats, Gate book. For GDs, we organised them in our wing. It was very helpful.<br /> Kindly do it often in your wing and among your batch mates too. Same goes for interview. There<br /> are lots of general interview questions available on FTP server, prepare for them well and have<br /> mock interviews. "Alumni interviews" were very helpful, please attend that. Randstad sessions were an absolutely waste of money and time. I was mainly selected due to my internship with Bosch. Prepare all subjects related to your intern. It will be the game changer.

                  The company wanted to acquire members for Manufacturing and R&D. The interviewer asked me basic questions in Man Tech like different types of Manufacturing (conventional and non-conventional). As I told him that I was interested in automobiles, he asked me about the engine and its parts, their materials, etc. A CAD drawing was shown to me to test the basic symbols like roughness parameters, etc.

                    Skill Tips
                    Brushed up basics of all mechanical courses and prepared for HR questions. It is better to target certain companies,prepare according to each, rather than going for every company that appears on the portal. I prepared from GATE book which covers almost all topics. The lectures from placement preparation website also helped. The aptitude questions were very easy and basic quant preparation is sufficient. As I didn't write CAT, had to adjust to the time limit in the written tests. It is better to practice quant papers for improving the speed. GATE book and placement preparation website were sufficient for core fundaes. Had GDs with wingmates.

                    Started my preparation in October but never really took off until November. It may help immensely to start early because as placements draw close, it may be tough to find time to study decently owing to tests and ppts. Also, I didn't prepare for non-core companies, but wrote the tests to improve my experience and speed in quant.

                    Round 1

                    Group Discussion

                    Group Discussion Topic
                    Commercialisation of health care
                    Interview Experience
                    Almost the entire group went off topic confusing commercialisation with privatisation. Inspite of HR manager's intervention regarding misinterpretation , group continued with privatisation.
                    Interview Tips
                    Technical firms are not expecting high level of GD & communication skills (except when the profile demands so) . You are expected to atleast be able to keep your view point with some logical support.
                    If you are able to raise 2-3 points in a polite way , you are highly likely to be selected.
                    If the GD you are appearing is for a profile like marketing , sales or where end to end interaction matters much , u need to be highly skillfull at your communication.
