Interview Process
Test video synthesis Problem Statement Group Discussion HR Interview
Round 1

Test

Test Sections
  • Section 1: quant
  • Section 2: logic questions
Interview Experience
15 simple quant and logic questions with negative marking.People who could solve even 10 correctly were able to clear the aptitude round.
Interview Tips
Don’t get stuck on one question. Go further and come back to that question if time permits.
Round 2

video synthesis

Interview Experience
You’ll be shown a video clip of around 2-3 minutes from a Hollywood movie.  You have to write your inferences about the clip. Please do not summarise. For example: We were shown a clip from the movie “2012”. The scene showed the crowd fighting to get on the airplane which was permitted only to the ones with a green card (richer section). Then the main character telling heads of nations about right and wrong.  Now to answer this correctly, you can write about the bravery of the man, discrimination between richer and the poorer sections, etc. And incorrect synthesis would be: people are fighting to get on the plane, man is giving a speech, etc. Write at least 3 major points and 2 sub points to support every major point.
Round 3

Problem Statement

Round 4

Group Discussion

Interview Experience
Groups of 4 were made. Likewise there were around 21 groups.  Each group was given a general management based problem, for example, the lowering sales of a so and so company. The group had to discuss about this problem and find a solution. There were 2 people from Musigma to guide during the GD. You can ask them necessary data related to the problem that is not mentioned. This will add to your scoring points.
Round 5

HR Interview

Interview Questions
    Interview Experience
    Simple non tech interview. Feel free to talk anything   Be prepared for situation based questions such as, if you were the manager of a company then which kind of team will you prefer, generalists or specialists? I am the owner of a diaper producing company, I raised the price but still my sales are rising, how is that possible? Any lame but practically possible answer will do, but let him know that you are thinking. Don’t be quiet whatsoever.  I was asked about my family, the quality that I like the most about myself.  Be thorough with your resume because it will be scanned and will be the source to most of the interview questions. In the end, why musigma?  Then I asked him few questions about the company.

      I was interviewed on-campus at GITAM University Hyderabad Campus for Trainee decision scientist role at Mu Sigma
      Interview Process
      Test Video Synthesis Group Discussion HR Interview
      Round 1

      Test

      Duration
      90 min Minutes
      Test Sections
      • Section 1: Quant & Logic
      • Section 2: English
      • Section 3: Data Interpretation
      • Section 4: Personality
      Interview Experience
      The aptitude test was conducted as a part of the CoCubes online exam that we were supposed to attempt. It was different than most of the aptitude exams that I have given so far. It consisted of negative marking, so I had to be cautious while attempting each question. They tested us mostly on our English skills and how well could we interpret a particular scenario or a picture followed by basic quant and logic questions. It was interesting yet challenging.
      Interview Tips
      Since the exam contains negative marking, it's best to attempt questions that we absolutely know the answer to. Any wild guesses can cost us a lot. I was very cautious while attempting the questions. In fact, I left a few questions from each section. It really doesn't matter until you are pretty confident about the questions that you've answered. Make sure that the questions that you answer are 100% correct.
      Round 2

      Video Synthesis

      Interview Experience
      Once I was shortlisted, I was called for further rounds and the first one was video synthesis. I was told that in this round, we would be shown a clipping and we would have to interpret it and that's exactly what happened with me. It was a 17 minute video where the CEO of the company was taking a lecture session. Once the video ended, we were given 10 minutes to write 3 strong points that we understood from the video. I was told before hand, not to explain about what you saw in the video but, what you understood from it and that's exactly what I did.
      Interview Tips
      There's a reason why it's called video synthesis and not video summary. Best keep your points crisp and to the point. Do not repeat what you've already seen in the video. Write what you understood from it and just keep it short.
      Round 3

      Group Discussion

      Duration
      45 minutes Minutes
      Interview Experience
      We were a group of 10 students. The duration of the discussion was about 45 minutes. We were given 3 topics. Each spread over 15 minutes. They were all based on general topics. Nothing too fancy or difficult. We were told before we begun the discussion that we would be judged on how well we articulate our thoughts and not based on how much we speak or how many fancy words we use in the discussion.

        Round 1

        Test

        Test Sections
        • Section 1: Online aptitude test
        Interview Experience
        It consisted of 15 question in 25min of the 15 questions 12 were easy and 3 were a little difficult. There was negative marking also. So be careful before you attempt all the questions. This one was an easy round one can easily clear it if he prepares well for aptitude. After that they shortlisted around 175 students among all of them who took the test.
        Round 2

        video synthesis

        Interview Experience
        Next we had a PPT about the company and then we had a Video Synthesis and Coding round. Video Synthesis: most of you might not be knowing what this round is actually about. It’s simple you need you write what you understood rather than what's there in the video. Coding round was also simple. You just need to write the output for the given code. Code is based on for loop. Little preparation is enough to clear this round.
        Round 3

        HR Interview

        Interview Questions
          Interview Experience
          1st round:
          My first round went on very well. Just keep yourself confident and answer the questions. They ask you to tell about yourself your interests etc. I said I was good at mimicry and he asked me to perform and he was very much impressed with what I did. Later there were a few case study questions. "If you were to conduct a marathon what all things do you take into consideration? “He asked me to tell at least 10 I said around 6.Next he asked me “What all can you do if you have a weather data of previous 4 years?” I told him around 5 to 6 things he was impressed. Always keep a smile on your face. I did very well and I was very confident to get through it.
          2nd round of interview:
          After my 1st round I was confident that I will make through to the 2nd round. As I expected I was called to the 2nd round. My 2nd round was different when compared to rest of all. They took a one on one interview for everyone but in my case I had a debate with other guy. They took interview for 2 of us together. Asked basic questions like tell me about yourself, where you will find yourself after 5 years and so. I was asked to defend why I will work in mu sigma over any other MNC .I was successful in it and was recruited.

          General Tips
          Be confident in whatever you say. Always keep a smile on your face at least to cover up your tensions. Never fake because they can easily find out if you do so. Stand on what you say in the interview. Never get disappointed if your pointer is low. Basic aptitude, video synthesis round - just go through it once. Case studies - very important. Have a basic idea of what it is

          It was overall a Good experience. In my case I felt it went on very easily.

Justify your action in two reasons as to why are you sitting here interviewing for the post of a data scientist rather than apply for a software engineer when this CV speaks highly of computer science? What is Finite Element Method? Explain. How relevant is your work in Computer Vision? Breakdown the tagline of Audi and translate accordingly. What is "Technik für Mobel" ?

                  Be analytical while finding out the reasons and try and think of ideas outside the box, it literally helps here. Dont go on ranting and allow your group mates to speak as it helps in creating a healthy atmosphere. Otherwise standard gd rules apply.
