Application
I was interviewed on-campus at IIT Roorkee for Aut - assistant under training role at ITC
Interview Process
Resume Shortlist Group Discussion Interview Interview
Round 1

Resume Shortlist

Interview Experience
Initial shortlisting was based on resume. Everyone above 8 was shortlisted.
Round 2

Group Discussion

Duration
25 mins Minutes
Interview Experience
Our GD was about an old man which died on a Christmas eve. Roles of various individuals/groups were given and they had to be arranged from the most responsible to the least responsible.Some of the roles were like:
1) The old man didn't save enough for old age and didn't had insurance. 
2) The doctor didn't attend a house call as he had a 70 h week. 
3) The hospital administration didn't admit the old man in the morning because of lack of facilities. 
4) The taxpayers didn't allow a bill on better health facilities because it would lead to an increase in taxes. Our GD turned out to be a cool one because almost everyone supported the same order. The total time for reading and discussion was 25 mins but we concluded by around 20 mins only. We spent most of the time discussing how the roles could have been to prevent the death.
Interview Tips
Try to develop a good vocab and fluency for GD. 
The key to any GD is to put as many ideas and to discuss with the group. 
Don't try to make it a monologue or just sit there supporting everyone. 
Try to rationally think about the topic. 
Starting the GD is advantageous only when you have really understood the topic. 
Otherwise, try to listen to other speakers and understand the topic. 
Even if you speak 2-3 times for reasonable length of time and put impressive points, you should make it through.
Round 3

Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Which other companies have you appeared for ? What happened there ?
  • Question 2: tell us about yourself
  • Question 3: Why not family business ?
  • Question 4: You have an intern and your IDD Dissertation on optimization. Did you have choices in these?
  • Question 5: Explain any other project.
Interview Experience
It was a technical plus HR round. 
This was how it went:1) Which other companies have you appeared for ?
Rio Tinto.
2) What happened there ?
I screwed up in HR.
3) Tell us something about yourself.
Did so. Told a little about family and campus life. Try to talk about things which you wish to be interviewed upon.
4) Why not family business ?
Convinced them about my liking of corporate life :)
5) You have an intern and your IDD Dissertation on optimization. Did you have choices in these?
Said Yes and explained why i chose optimization and also explained the projects a little. One of the guys had worked on electrocoagulation and was impressed by my understanding :)
6) Explain any other project.
Told them about shale gas project.
7) What's the distribution of shale gas in the world and what's its composition?
Told them.
8) Why do we have flaring of gas when we take out crude?
It depends on the amount of gas in place. If the gas in place is low, building a pipeline to take gas would be costly, hence it is flared.
9) Why do we flare it in petrochemical complexes?
Greenhouse potential of methane is higher than that of carbon dioxide.
10) How high?
Err....90 times.?!! (actually it is 72 times)
11) How would you calculate the efficiency of a boiler?Told them. Try to use bookish language in your answers.
12) Laws of thermodynamics and their statements.
Simplest Question :)
13) How do you relate the Clausius Statement with the Kelvin Statement.
Explained with a diagram.
14) Tell me about your learnings while working as a team leader and as a team member.
Told them about Cogni. Tried to explain my role but was asked to be specific on learnings.
15) Why ITC ?
ITC being an Indian company has gone upto the standards of global giants like P&G and HUL in terms of quality. You have the best people working for you and its easier to learn from people rather than to learn from books.
16) You want to work for an indian company and just appeared for Rio Tinto ?!!
Umm....Sir, it has just started working in India !!

    General Tips
    I started preparing for placements by the start of November. For ITC, the first step is writing your<br />
    resume correctly. Don't write things just to make your resume attractive. Write about things in which you are really confident. For interns and projects, write in a manner to clearly indicate the aim of work, your personal contribution, your learnings and the final result. Read relevant coursework to your projects as it will help you in interview. Prepare 3-4 subjects really well as you might be asked an area of interest. You need to be good in your core courses as ITC pays attention to how well you can recall them. Try to go through as many subjects atleast once.<br />
    Think about 3-4 companies that you have a good chance in. Know their procedures and past year questions and prepare accordingly. It helps.

    ITC MANAGEMENT TRAINEE interview

    I was interviewed on-campus for MANAGEMENT TRAINEE role at ITC
    Interview Process
    Resume Shortlist Group Discussion Technical Interview HR Interview
    Round 1

    Resume Shortlist

    Interview Experience
    The initial shortlist was done on the basis of resume, CGPA and Branch.
    Round 2

    Group Discussion

    Interview Experience
    It was a case study based GD. Three minutes time was given to read the case which was about a plane which had crashed and the whole scenario was explained. There were 7 survivors and one had to choose an appropriate leader among them who would lead them either out of the jungle to nearest occupied area or help them survive to wait for reinforcements.
    It is always good to read the case early and look to initiate the discussion. But be careful to let others read as well. I did the same. Next after putting your points try to steer the discussion in the right direction. People were getting very emotional and excited and were looking to speak without bothering that rest of the participants were listening to them. There was a time in the GD when 5 people out of 8 were speaking at once leading to chaos. I opted to keep quiet and tried to listen as much as I could, appreciating good points put up by few of them. Finally, I interrupted to tell them to speak one by one and passed the discussion to one of them, who was making some valid points. At the end, look to conclude while taking into consideration valid points put up by others (this demonstrates you are an active listener) and add your own creative/innovative points. There were two observers both of whom took my final HR interview.
    Round 3

    Technical Interview

    Interview Experience
    In technical round they were three interviewers one was an electrical engineering alumni of IITR who asked me technical questions and rest were mostly observing. Firstly, I was asked Tell me about yourself? I explained about my life at IIT Roorkee, about my participation in Cognizance, about my hobbies like squash and then about my family. I went on speaking for about 15-20 minutes, I was hoping they would interrupt me at some point. Finally, I was left with nothing to say as I had told them everything. They were like Phew!!  As if I was telling them a story. Next, they asked about my internship. What did I do? How as an electrical engineer I gave my inputs to the internship?
    Next, they asked about my B.Tech. project? My guides name? What I was doing in the project? I explained it all on a sheet of paper. I don’t think he was able to understand what I was telling, so he interrupted.
    Then he asked about my favorite subject in electrical engineering and my grades in that subject. He also inquired about my department rank.
    Next he asked me some technical questions: What is floating point neutral? What is earth résistance and some others. I was able to answer most of them and rest which I didn’t know I told him after some deliberation straight away that I didn’t know the right answer. One important thing that helped me here is that I spoke put my thinking process and the interviewer also helped me to reach the final answer. Finally he asked me to tell something interesting about myself? That ended the interview.
    Round 4

    HR Interview

    Interview Experience
    For the next round, there were two interviewers; they asked me why my SGPA had fallen in last semester? I told them as it was a tough semester in EE nd hence my SGPA had dropped. Next they asked me about how I manage conflicting priorities in life. I answered to them in reference to the previous question that after scoring less SGPA in the last semester I was disappointed and in some part of my mind I was blaming my participation in Cognizance as the reason for it. This semester I had to choose to be the convener of the festival. It was an important decision as it would affect my studies. I told them as studies were my top priority in IITR as it always has been. Rather than giving up on the team which I was to lead, I told them I decided to take this as a challenge and correct my mistakes. And now my aim is to score an SGPA over 9 this semester while conducting the festival successfully. They looked impressed and this ended the interview.
    Interview Tips
    Study your resume well especially internship. Don’t add any internship (2nd year) where you haven’t done anything.Prepare your technical/core subjects practical/application based. Last but not the least, be yourself.

      ITC Management trainee - technical interview

      AnonymousFresherSelected
      Application
      I was interviewed on-campus for Management trainee - technical role at ITC
      Interview Process
      Group Discussion Technical Interview HR Interview
      Round 1

      Group Discussion

      Duration
      20 Minutes
      Group Discussion Topic
      Topic is generally the same as that at the time of intern or last year placement (of prioritizing options or things or causes).
      Interview Experience
      There were 8 of us.
      Interview Tips
      1. Don’t be dominant, try to put your points confidently in such a way that the group agrees to the priority number you set. 
      2. Though it is always good to start a GD and lay down a structure which others follow but then also it’s not sure that you will be selected. 
      3. Keep track of time and try to summarize before GD’s duration is over. Also note the priority number decided by the group on the paper given to you (most people forget to do that). 
      4. Keep making notes (helps in summarizing).
      Round 2

      Technical Interview

      Interview Questions
      • Question 1: Tell me something about yourself?
      • Question 2: Questions on my B.Tech Project?
      • Question 3: Air Compressor and Refrigeration Cycle?
      • Question 4: Questions on Leadership Skills?
      • Question 5: How would you transfer a highly viscous liquid which easily gets agitated (bubble formation) from one vessel to another?
      Interview Experience
      It was a mix of HR and Technical interview. Panel was of 2 persons (an IIT guy serving ITC for like 2-3 years and other one a bit senior to him (wasn’t from IIT)) and interview lasted for 1 hour.
      Round 3

      HR Interview

      Interview Questions
      • Question 1: CPI related questions (why not go for MS?)
      • Question 2: Random technical questions (Diesel & Petrol Engine, Fluidization, Pumps (what can be the possible problems when flow rate of water to be transferred in a high-storeyed building is low?), some question from Theory of Machines, etc.)
      • Question 3: Weaknesses and how I try to overcome it?
      • Question 4: Their views about me and then asking my views about myself?
      • Question 5: Last question (the 1st and the last question in the whole interview from the man (who kept looking at me very keenly the whole time) who seemed to be an HR guy): Have you ever fallen in love?
      Interview Experience
      It was also a mixed interview. Panel was of 2 very senior members (one seemed to be an HR member and other one seemed to be a Factory or Division Manager) and the interview lasted for 1 hour.

      Skill Tips
      Energy Systems both 1st and 2nd (for ME study pumps separately)
      General Tips
      1. Do take a sleep of at least 3-4 hours before coming for the interview. <br />
      2. Never try to be over smart or over confident about yourselves. PLEASE prepare for the interviews and GD. GD topics are the same as previous years so try them out in groups. <br />
      3. Don’t reach at the final answer in an interview without proper reasoning or paperwork. Speak what you are thinking. They will be giving some cues to help you. <br />
      4. At least make an elaborate diagram in questions related to thermo and fluids (mark the details). Mug up the pumps classification. <br />
      5. Also don’t try to copy the form from someone else. Be yourself.<br />
      6. Prioritize your companies. Give some thought to what you enjoy doing rather than just running for the money. It’s better to talk to people already working in the companies you are targeting, ask them about the work profile and then come at a decision. <br />
      7. It’s a myth that some companies have a hit list although it can be the case that you may feel that you are at a lower priority but if you perform better than everyone else then you will be the one hired. <br />
      8. Try not to put your foot in more than 2 sectors or 4 companies on the 1st day. <br />
      9. Once you are qualified for the interview round then CPI can never be the reason for not selecting you. Keep in mind that you are never rejected, either you are selected or not selected. And, it’s just a beginning to your career.<br />
      10. From whatever I learnt form asking people is that 10-15 years down the line everyone would be almost at the same level independent of your starting package and you will be thinking how stupid you were at the time of placements running madly for money or brand name. So, go for what you want rather than what your wingie or any XYZ person wants.

        • Question 4: Why did you limit your model to these inputs ?
        Interview Experience
        This round was primarily core based. The first few questions were a set of typical HR introductory questions. Next thequestions were primarily about my interships and projects. I found this round pretty fast paced and rapid. They would randomly pick something from my resume and would ask me to briefly explain it. Then there were tons of follow up questions. There were also a few HR questions which were behavioural in nature - wherein you would be asked to give an instance from your life that illustrated a competency like people skills conflict resolution etc.
        Interview Tips
        Be through with everything on your resume.

        Interview Experience
        Reasonably laid back and chilled out. I was interviewed by the CEO and an MD of the ITC Paper and Packaging division. I also got to ask a couple of questions in the end.

        Skills Tested

        • Confidence while communicating.
        • Clarity in arguments.
        • Practical application of concepts.
        Skill Tips
        Make sure you are able to speak constructively about every line in your resume. Have a clear understanding of every project/internship. Revise all your courses from a practical standpoint. I would highly recommend going through the Lab experiments and their respective chapters in McCabe & Smith. Apart from Core, I was focusing on Finance. I had cleared CFA level 1 and so I revised the syllabus once. I would recommend reading the Econ, CorpFin, Portfolio Management and Derivatives portions of the level 1 syllabus. Reading ET everyday can be of great help in the interview andGD. Also pick and read about any five major Fin/Econ episodes in the world. Apart from that practice puzzles regularly. And MOST importantly prep for CAT. Almost all the companies beyond Day 1.1 have CAT based tests as a shortlisting criteria.
        General Tips
        Interviews are nothing but a story telling competition. Pick a unifying theme and prepare a story for yourself. This should come out in the first two/three minutes of the interview. Make sure you have a rationale behind having done everything you have put in your resume. The interviewers look at your resume in its totality and not as bunch of independent spikes. Google the company. Check out their latest corporate news, product lauches etc. Have answers ready for the following questions - Introduce yourself (2-3 minutes pitch. Clear, concise and well bucketed as acads/interns etc), Strengths & Weaknesses (Pick 3 each and back them up with instances from ur life) and Long term and short term goals (Make sure they are alligned with the firm's culture). Follow the STAR approach (Google it) to answer HR questions. DO NOT mug up answers to standard HR questions. You'll sound unnatural and fake and won't strike a chord with the interviewer. Have a set of bullet points ready and go over them in a way you would when you meet someone on a train.

        Resume Shortlist

        Interview Experience
        The app I had to fill for ITC was really really very intensive. It took me quite some time to just come up with what I could write in my app.
        Interview Tips
        But have patience while writing your app, be honest (however you can tone it up, but being within limits of genuineness). Write it preferably when you are relaxed and don't do it in a haste. It does really matter what you write in your app sometimes.

        A logical real life case study.
        Interview Experience
        My group overall was a very decent one. We performed well as a team. And almost everybody could and did speak really well.
        Interview Tips
        I personally feel it doesn't matter much as to who begins or concludes a GD. Just that whenever you get to speak, be logical and make sense. Your contribution should help in driving the group towards a conclusion. Avoid redundant reiteration of points already been made and try to be systematic, as in have a proper plan that helps finish your discussion in time and speak it out loud if you have one.Speak or refute a person only when you have a solid point and be very very polite and considerate.
        Round 3

        HR Interview

        Interview Experience
        Went very peacefully, without much stress, without any load, just went on talking in the flow and seemed to have got over in a flick.
        Interview Tips
        Be smiling always. Even if you are nervous, don't let it be apparent, fake confidence. Believe me it really helps! Apart from that, be honest and more importantly be yourself. It's really as simple as that!

          Application
          I was interviewed on-campus at IIT Kharagpur for Assistant manager role at ITC
          Interview Process
          Test Group Discussion Interview Interview
          Round 1

          Test

          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

            ITC Management trainee - technical interview

            I was interviewed on-campus for Management trainee - technical role at ITC
            Interview Process
            Group Discussion HR Interview Technical Interview
            Round 1

            Group Discussion

            Duration
            20-25 Minutes
            Group Discussion Topic
            A group of people is stranded in a forest with 15 things. The group has to prioritize the materials.
            Interview Experience
            Number of people were 8. Generally, the topics are repeated so it would be a good idea to think about them before as everybody else will. However, one should be prepared for a fresh topic. Structuring and controlling/moderating the group is very important and will fetch heavy points. Also ITC is a very ethical company, so a proper decorum and formal environment is needed in the GD. Shouting and being a bad listener gets one negative points.
            Interview Tips
            One could play certain games like speaking for a minute on any random topic given by someone else. These games help remove the inhibition of speaking in English and add to fluency. The only way to improve discussion skills is practicing speaking in English on random topics.
            Round 2

            HR Interview

            Interview Questions
            • Question 1: Form based questions (elaborate any answer)
            • Question 2: How was your internship experience, why didn’t you get a PPO?
            • Question 3: You don’t seem like a manager, convince us that you are suitable for this profile?
            • Question 4: What kind of leadership roles have you taken in the campus?
            • Question 5: Would you prefer ITC over BCG?
            • Question 6: Suppose I am the person hiring form BCG, will your answer change to the above question?
            Interview Tips
            Yes, they do ask this difficult question, but the key is to remain positive and not regret any experience.
            Round 3

            Technical Interview

            Interview Questions
            • Question 1: What is a PID controller?

            • Question 5: What are the different terms in the Navier Stokes equation?
            Interview Experience
            I was asked basics of process control (as my work in internship was linked to it ). However, I was not very comfortable with this subject, so I kindly requested them to ask from my strong subject Fluid dynamics. (Again , this is a risk which paid off in my case, might not work always.) Panel consists of 2 HR guys and one senior alum of IIT B and the duration was 40 minutes. Since my internship was with HUL, a lot of questions were asked on the project and its utility. BE thorough with any internship/projects that are mentioned in the form. I was also asked to defend my not getting a PPO with HUL.

            Along with basics of equipments used in factories like pumps, Heat exchangers, mixers, etc. However basic concepts of all courses should be revised as there could be questions from controls, separation process etc.
            General Tips
            1. Good CPI and department rank is a big plus<br />
            2. Should have clear basic understanding of technical course materials, specially of those courses which relate to industry (eg: fluid and thermodynamics for chemical).<br />
            3. Form is very important, spare a lot of time and be thorough with all the answers<br />
            4. For people with very strong profiles, prepare convincing answers of why ITC.<br />
            5. They need strong headed people but do not be over confident or cocky<br />
            6. Lastly, always wear a smile to the interviews.
