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 4

HR Interview

Interview Experience
My HR interview went pretty well. I was not very tensed as my interviewers made me feel comfortable. It was just a basic HR round and I made sure that I put my best foot forward.

I was interviewed on-campus at NIT Surathkal for Decision scientist role at Mu Sigma
Interview Process
Test Group Discussion Case Study Interview personal interview Puzzle Interview
Round 1

Test

Interview Experience
1.It starts off with an Aptitude test of 30 min time duration, testing your Quantitative aptitude like MBA exams,
but way easier and some basic Computer Programming knowledge.
2. Of what I observed, they select half of the people after aptitude test.
Interview Tips
1. Be calm and give anything you want/like like you don't want it at all.
Then see the magic happen.
Round 2

Group Discussion

Interview Experience
1.Then half of the remaining candidates are removed after GD round
2.One needs a clear mind to answer those.
Round 3

Case Study Interview

Interview Experience
1.We had Case Study analysis
2.They filter out two thirds of the people after Case study and Video round
3.Also for Mu Sigma, one has to prepare out of the box answers for Case studies which they will ask in the
interview.


Interview Tips
1.Google the last years’ case studies asked in Mu Sigma interviews.
Round 4

personal interview

Interview Experience
1.Finally you are left with about 1/6th of the total number of candidates for PI stage (ie 42 ppl appx) out of
which they select about 1/3rd of the people.
2.So all in all about 1/18th of the total number of candidates make it to Mu Sigma appx.
3.One needs a clear mind to answer those.
Round 5

Puzzle Interview

Interview Experience
1) You are in the middle of a desert and you have a full glass of water. The glass is cylindrical and you are
carrying nothing else along with you. Your mission, to make the water in the glass EXACTLY 50% or half (By
exactly I mean EXACTLY). So think of a way to do it.
2) Count the number of hair on your head ? . Find the answer logically.
3) You have to build a hotel in the middle of 2 major cities along the highway. The two cities are 500 km apart
and you have to build a hotel right in the middle of the 2 cities. Think of ways to maximize profits in a barren
land with nothing around.


Interview Tips
1.(Don't give a cheesy answer like one million and say you can't
prove it so any number will do)
2.Like the 3 questions above, many more were asked in my interview. Try solving them on your own, as you
can expect questions along this line in your interview.
General Tips
1.Well they are looking for logical, analytical people. As mentioned above the type of questions they ask test

your logical ability to the limit.

2.Also its a myth that low pointers don't get placed first.

I got placed in the first month of placement season on campus and the 10th person to be placed in a branch

of 150 students.



Motivation for applying
*"Give it like you don't want it, if you want that thing."*

Think and introspect on that quote and I'm pretty sure you NITKians will understand it.

Interview Process
Test video synthesis HR Interview
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 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.

Skill Tips
Books: RS Agarwal for aptitude (at least for this company)
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.
