I was interviewed on-campus at IIT Kanpur for AUT - Assistant Under Training role at ITC
Interview Process
Group Discussion Technical Interview
Round 1

Group Discussion

Interview Experience
The GD was a typical ITC GD. The problem was similar to the one given during internship GDs. An old man died due to medical emergency and role of various factors up in hierarchy was described. His wife grieved because they did not save enough money for their old age. The doctor did not admit him earlier in accordance with the hospital rules. Similarly, the hospital administration had already exhausted its charitable funds and the government had reduced expenditure on health (the government was elected by the people on this basis as mentioned in their manifesto). Based on the information given, the group was required to rate people/organizations in terms of their responsibility for the old man’s death. Five minutes
were given in the beginning for individual ranking and 20 minutes for discussion and group ranking.
Round 2

Technical Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Do you know what it is like working in a factory?
  • Question 2: Do you realize how mundane and routine the job is?
  • Question 3: Have you ever been to a factory before?
  • Question 4: Why not higher studies ?
  • Question 5: Do you have ethical issues regarding working in a cigarette factory?
Interview Experience
There were two people in the panel: one from technical background and the other a HR manager. Having known that I was also appearing in other companies on day one, they asked me about which one will I choose if offered by both ITC and Intel. This point came up several times during the interview and resulted in a long debate.
Starting with my internship, they asked me about key learning and technical description of the project and its impact. Discussed leadership roles, long term goals, how does ITC fit into that etc. Questions based on what I had filled in the form were asked, reasons why I did not opt for other options (higher studies, IAS, I-banks) and so on.
General Tips
Most of the times, things go on as they are supposed to, we do what we are assigned, meet deadlines and get it over with. Knowing what to do after four or five years of study at IIT is one of those deciding phases where we have to do something out of routine, think about what we actually want, what we can get from where we are. Here is an account of how I went about making my decisions and preparing for it. In one of those routine placement

talks, a speaker remarked, ‘there are two ways you can choose a career- by extrapolation from what you have right now and by interpolation from your long term goal’. This helps one realize the importance of identification of long term goal. In my opinion, once a person is convinced about that, it is easy to pull off an interview; more importantly, it is easy to identify which options to prepare for.

Interview Experience
The GD was a case discussion. A plane had crashed into a jungle and there were 7-8 survivors. we were given brief intro of each person and had to decide certain things
Interview Tips
in a 25 minute GD one should be careful that the time available is neither too less nor too much. You need not jump directly into the discussion and give away all the points that you have thought. that way you wont have anything to speak in the later half. nor should you wait too long. your points should be placed well apart so that you remain in the picture throughout your GD. Also try to frame your points clearly and support them with examples or analogies. That too helps. You may start or conclude the GD if you are really confident about it.

  • Question 1: Tell us about your project
  • Question 2: What was the biggest challenge during your intern

Do not be too conscious. In a technical interview you should be calm and comfortable. Treat it like a chat bcoz major focus is on the answers or your technical knowledge and not your body language or attitude. THINK ALOUD. all the steps involved in the solution should be explained elaborately

Skill Tips
ITC generally looks at the balance between academics and extra-academics. If the CGPA is in the lower range of 7.5 - 8.5, there should be sufficient extra-academics and extra-curricular efforts in the CV ( Core Team / Inter-IIT / Inter-halls/ Start-ups/ Papers or any other position of responsibility ) . Internships in companies will definitely help. Especially some experience of working in a factory / leading a team in a project would be good. Especially some experience of working in a factory / leading a team in a project would be good. Other than that, any impactful intern ( FT too ) will surely add value. It always helps in the interview if the candidate has done a lot of research on the company. Normally people do not research much and stumble when questions like “ Why ITC specifically “ are asked. Do research about ITC. ITC’s CSR initiatives, products, divisions etc.
