Round 1

Test

Duration
50 Minutes
Test Sections
    Interview Experience
    The first round was an online psychometric test, which was given 2 or 3 days before the company visiting day. You need not use brains to finish this test, it is just a set of overlapping questions about your character and personality. All you need is little patience to attempt all the questions which will take around 50 min. The first shortlist was done based on this test and the resume, I suppose. The pointer cutoff was 7.5; so the first shortlist had about 20 students. On the company visiting day, the shortlisted students were given PPT presentation about the company.
    Round 2

    Group Discussion

    Group Discussion Topic
    'Future Scope of Alternative Sources of Energy in our Country'
    Interview Experience
    After this, we had a group discussion with around 10 guys in each group. The topic given to my group was: Future Scope of Alternative Sources of Energy in our Country. It was relatively an easy topic, in which most of the guys had supportive views; so there was not much of a debate.

    Interview Questions
      Interview Experience
      The GD was followed by interviews in which 7 guys were shortlisted. The panel had one technical guy and one HR guy. So, after a round of technical questions, the HR questions were served. I think I must have answered about 75% of questions correct in the technical part, while HR part I just survived. Only the students who would eventually get selected were called for the second round of interviews which was just to affirm our willingness to work for thecompany.
      Interview Tips
      For the technical interview, you will be asked questions on subjects of your interest. So, just make sure that your basics are strong in at least 2 to 3 core subjects. In my case, it was fluid mechanics, heat transfer and vibrations. It included a combination of theory and simple problems. I answered most of them correctly. They even asked about the project work I did during your summer internship or industrial training. So, prepare yourself to brief about yourproject work. I think, this is very important. The HR part included usual questions like cite an instance where your leadership skills were tested, whether you are ready for 'getting your hands dirty' sort of job, about your personality in general, etc.

        Skill Tips
        I did not prepare anything in particular for this company. Since there was no aptitude test, the apti preparation was not necessary. For GD, just be specific in your view points during theintroductory turn and try to support other valid points in the discussion phase. Don't try to speak too much. The interview mostly revolves around your CV and some good projects on your CV really helps.The company is searching for people with strong skills in core electrical and mechanical engineering so no need to prepare any coding skills.
        General Tips
        Since it was my first interview, I was pretty nervous and they even noted it, but at the end, all is well that ends well.The HR questions were quite challenging because I was not really prepared. I just showed through my body language that I was very keen in getting that job, which finally paid off. After my interview, I did not expect to get selected because among the ones selected for the interview, I had the least pointer. But, later I realised that pointer is not just the criteria for placements. So, don't worry about that.I was the only mech guy who got selected finally apart from two others in trical. My prime advice is: just remain positive throughout the placement period.

        Skill Tips
        Basic subjects like BTD and fluid mechanics along with some concepts of heat transfer should get you through. The applications of the above subjects rather than theory was stressed on.<br /> Be sure and confident with your internship projects and industrial training . Just make sure you know in and out about it.
        General Tips
        The company profile is really confusing . Many confused it with HUL profile i.e supply chain but It was of production and maintenance engineers where basics of BTD , pumps, compressors, chillers, boilers etc was tested rather operations research.

        It was challenging because of the high number of applicants and very less intake also it was a bit unexpected as they clearly mentioned it during my interview that my resume was more of research oriented but you never know what they are exactly looking for so it is always good to be true self and honest about it. The interview went on for 35 mins which consisted of around 15 mins of tech and the rest HR.
