Application
I was interviewed on-campus at IIT Kanpur for Management Trainee role at Tata Motors
Interview Process
aptitude test Technical test Group Discussion technical interview
Round 1

aptitude test

Interview Experience
The aptitude test consisted of verbal, analytical and numerical questions with sufficient time to answer the questions.
Round 2

Technical test

Interview Experience
The technical test contained questions from almost all the compulsory courses that you may have studied over the past four-five years, mostly conceptual though but there were some numerical questions as well.
Round 3

Group Discussion

Group Discussion Topic
Is quality a myth in India ?
Interview Experience
There was a group discussion on the topic ‘Is quality a myth in India? ‘ to eliminate a few students and the rest were selected for the final interviews.
Round 4

technical interview

Interview Experience
Interview lasted for about 25-30 minutes. They started by asking about my interests and backgrounds and then came directly into questions related to my areas of interests. They asked questions about torque transmission through a shaft, I-beams, stress-strain and buckling and a little background about my thesis followed by one basic question related to it. The final 10-12 minutes were spent in discussing the questions that I had asked the interviewers and it also helped in lightening the mood, so I would suggest be ready to ask the interviewer a few questions to show that you are genuinely interested
During the interview questions were asked mostly from my areas of interests and a little about my thesis and internships. But it is important to know one or two courses very thoroughly.
General Tips
Do’s and Don’ts :

● Do not take GD’s lightly, I ignored it till the very last moment and did my first GD on the night before the actual GD. It is a shortlisting criteria for many mechanical engineering core companies and you wouldn’t want to lose out there.

● Read about your thesis and internships properly. Many of your interviews would revolve around that only.

● Select one or two major courses and prepare them thoroughly, you may be asked about the courses that you liked at IITK followed by some questions related to it.

● Practice explaining your projects and HR questions with someone.

● Get to know a little about the company before the interview. You may drop that information somewhere during the interview to show your interest. Also be ready to ask a question at the end.

● Don’t copy answers to HR questions from the internet, write your own and try to remember the key points.

● Don’t lose heart if you are not shortlisted or not selected. There are a lot of other options.

  • Question 7: What is Apriori Algorithm ?
  • Question 8: What is Logistic regression and Random Forest ?
Interview Experience
I was one of the last ones to be interviewed so I was under the presumption that I had lost the company. Since, everyone was just asked about their CV, it was important to show my uniqueness in terms of the skill sets and the answers to trivial HR questions.
I complimented their website and said that demonetisation is a boon for the company as there would be more digital currency transactions. I was asked technical questions because I had mentioned those terms in my CV. For most of the other candidates, no technical questions were asked.
Interview Tips
Stay calm, confident and sharp. It is important to know about the company and why you would be a good fit. Saying the right things at the right time is paramount in bagging an offer.
