Application
I was interviewed on-campus at IIT Roorkee for GRADUATE TRAINEE role at Flipkart
Interview Process
Test Group Discussion HR Interview
Round 1

Test

Interview Experience
Since I was preparing for Cat 2015, My quant aptitude speed was above average. This helped me in cracking the test.
Interview Tips
Do prepare for Cat. Even though one is not seriously considering it, it would help in cruising through the aptitude tests during placement.
Round 2

Group Discussion

Duration
10 Minutes
Group Discussion Topic
India vs Hindustan
Interview Experience
During my GD, I came up with a few points, but they were too mainstream and nothing which would make the instructor notice me.I remember one boy stated that if India changes to Hindustan, We would be kept in the league of terrorism Stricken nations like Afganistan, Pakistan.I immediately Countered that such thinking is shown by narrow minded people,whose opinions shouldnt matter to us in first place.I guess that was a winning stroke for me. There were 10 guys, out of which 4 were selected for the next round.
Interview Tips
Flipkart was quite known for taking GD on random topics, Like Blue vs Black, Joker vs Batman.I remember one group was told to choose their own GD topic.In such Cases, Background Study isnt of much help.It all comes down to the things one knows inherently, things which are accumulated by ones surrounding .In topics such as these, try to give out of the box solutions, so that the person remembers you during selection.Also, prior GD experience helps one in being calm and collected and to think clearly.

        General Tips
        Learnt from seniors and alumni what companies from different sector (Consulting, finance, core etc) looks for and prepared my resume accordingly. This also helped me to realize that my profile was weak for finance sector which requires a lot of preparation and hence I was less focused on this sector. Next I started preparing for aptitude test and practiced with the Career Launcher CAT test material (any coaching institute material would suffice). Next I started preparing for case studies through various books listed on SPO’s website. With the help of friends/wingmates I practiced different types of case studies in a proper interview like environment. Newspaper (economic times, hindu) reading were also an important part of my preparations, they kept me inform on various issues and they also gave me an idea of facts and figures essential for consulting firms. At the same time I also started preparing for HR interviews. After the results of various companies aptitude test were declared I fine tuned my preparations accordingly.
