Technical Interview

Interview Experience
Technical Interview was not done but in some of the HR interviews, questions were asked about the Final year
project,Industrial training/projects etc., which were in the resume.First of all MICHELIN is a very good world class company and I wished to get selected by looking at the company's profile, environment, future chances of career growth etc.,About the interview I observed that most of the interviewers were very friendly and i did not feel any stress or pressure at any time.The organizing,leadership and management skills were examined very well and were found to be very useful.

Interview Experience
Details of the answers written for the six questions in the prelims test. These answers are very important and should be perfect.Shortlisted candidates were called for final interviews in CHENNAI.The final round of interviews were also HR interviews and three foreigners from UK,Dutch,US have taken the interviews for me individually. Every interview was almost similar and basic HR questions were asked in every interview. As a whole, questions were asked about my personality, goals, willingness to join the company,proper planning of your career, how would you prove yourself best for the company, about final year project, industrial training and projects etc.,And through out the entire process the resume and answer book with the answers to the six questions in the prelims were seen and questions were asked about them.

    General Tips
    Be confident on what you say in the interview because most of it is HR and stand on your answer, don't jump between sides.Your resume should be very perfect and let it not contain anything about which you are not confident enough to answer.Most important things about this company were

    i) The BOND/service agreement was for FIVE years

    ii) The compensation which you need to pay if you break the bond and mode of its payment

    iii) The salary which you get if the training is in foreign

    iv) Duration and location of the training etc.,

    and we did not have clear information about these things till the end.

    It is advised to have very clear idea of these things at least before you attend the final interviews of some of Multi National Companies like MICHELIN.Finally, Be cool,get relaxed,have a SMILE on your face and ROCK the interview.

    Round 1

    Test

    Duration
    60 Minutes
    Test Sections
    • Section 1: Aptitude test
    • Section 2: HR Test
    Interview Experience
    It was a general Aptitude test - simple mathematical questions, around 10 - 15 Verbal questions and around 5 HR questions - your three strengths, why did you choose Michelin?
    Round 2

    HR Interview

    Interview Experience
    There were three rounds of HR interview - one in the campus and the other two in Chennai. They were mainly targeting on testing my willingness to work with the company. In the first interview general questions like tell me about yourself; what is the difference between a manager and a leader; which situation is more important - a leaderbeing a manager or a manager being a leader; how did you come to know about Michelin, explain your strengths (this is the key area where you could impress them the best) were asked. The next two interviews were mainly focused on testing the communication skills and if I was willing to have a long term commitment with the company. Questions posed - The first question was Take me through your resume (stress your academic and extra-curricular achievements); how would you like to see yourself within the next 5 years; explain about your trainings and projects; how do you visualize Michelin - as a universal company or the one dominating in only one country; what do you expect would be your role technically in the company ( the rubber compounding); why do you think the setting up of a plant in India is required (the climatic conditions and the road system in India is completely different as compared to other European, American or Asian countries. The tyres working excellently there could not be expected to show the same efficiency here. The initial components during the rubber compounding has to be varied accordingly and suitably the products have to brought out); what profile do you prefer more - leading or technical ( quality management); what would you prefer taking up as your first assignment- technical or management; is it fine for you to work abroad?The 3 interviewers who interviewed me were from 3 different nationalities - France, US and UK. It was a bit tough to understand the French HR's language, so needed a bit more concentration.They were very friendly and there was nothing to be tensed about.

      General Tips
      Stay cool. Speak out clearly. Try explaining your strengths with real time situations where you had proved them.You are always free to ask queries at the end of the interview. Make sure you ask them the most relevant and impressing questions, this would be an added advantage. "Tell me about yourself" is one most common question,so remember to include all your strengths here. Have an overview of the company's profile before you go into the interview room. This always helps in any interview. Also be sincere while answering the HR questions in the initial Aptitude test, they try to cross check your opinions.Be confident and you will definitely clear off the interview..

      Good Luck!

      • Question 4: Situation where your leadership quality came up
      • Question 5: Your best achievement
      • Question 6: What is your idea of an organisation?
      Interview Experience
      All the questions were subjective.The first interview was on campus.Completely HR.
      So in the 1st interview apart from those questions they will ask about your family history.
      Why you were impressed by Michelin and some co curricular activities.
      The next two interviews were in their office in Chennai.Both were taken by foreign officials. The first one was HR
      again and in the second they ask you about your project work industrial training in detail.
      Interview Tips
      Make sure you don’t bullshit in the HR written questions.Because that booklet stays with them until your final interview. Don’t fill the whole page.Be precise,no stories.

        General Tips
        Please make sure you clear all your doubts during the ppt and the interviews, whether it is regarding the

        remuneration or the bond or your posting location. Be confident and clear of your views.Knowing a foreign language is a big plus point. Since most of the HR interviews are taken by the foreign officials (with more than 20 years of attachment to Michelin).I suggest you show that u are willing to commit and let them know that u want to make yourself indispensable to the company.Clarity in your views will show your confidence. Do not bullshit in the HR interviews. They are experienced enough to know when you are fibbing.

        Good Luck to all of you.
        Motivation for applying
        The company has plants setup in various parts of the world and is a great opportunity for those looking for global exposure. Michelin requires a five year bond and only those students who are sure of their commitment should apply for the job. Overall the company is a good opportunity and is perfect for people who want to pursue either technical or marketing fields.

They are all basic HR questions like Tell me about your self, what do you want to become after 5 years, what is your aim, what do you know about Michelin and all such kind of basic HR questions.The final interview took place in Chennai and the final interview was taken by HR managers from USA,UK. That experience with them was awesome. On the whole the whole interview panel is friendly. It was not like interview but it will be like interaction.

              General Tips
              NO CGPA matters here, just be confident while giving your interview. Tell them that we want to be with your organization in a way that I want to hold some high position after 10 yrs. Make them feel that you will be with them for long period. That's it. Don't worry much, a person with good managing skills will get through easily and lastly highlight your achievements very much, those will carry lot of weightage.

              ALL THE BEST......
