The first Section was Technical which consisted of Several Sub-Sections like SOIL MECHANICS,CONCRETE TECHNOLOGY,TRANSPORTATION ENGINEERING,Building Materials,MISCELLANEOUS(Containing Environment Engineering and Surveying Questions).There were 40 questions in total and time allotted was 25 minutes.It was not an online test;we were given an envelop containing question paper.The Second Section was ENGLISH consisting of 40 questions and time allotted was 20 minutes.This Section basically dealt with questions on Choosing the correct Spelling(5-6questions),finding synonyms and antonyms,Rearranging jumbled words,completing the sentence with appropriate word,finding errors and answering questions from paragraph.

For Technical Section,I think going through the basics of the above mentioned sub sections will be helpful.Some of the questions asked were like Gypsum is used for,Bitumen grade having lowest viscosity is,Compaction results in,Flash point test,one numerical to find the quantity of sand required,Permanent hardness of water can be removed by,What is benchmark?,Uniformly spaced contour indicates?and so on.Most of the questions were theoretical,only two numericals were asked

    Shapoorji Pallonji Management trainee interview

    , 6.1k views
    Bhupendra SoniFresherSelected
    Application
    I was interviewed on-campus at IIT Bombay for Management trainee role at Shapoorji Pallonji
    Interview Process
    Resume Shortlist Group Discussion Technical Interview
    Round 1

    Resume Shortlist

    Interview Experience
    My resume was mostly civil core with 2 core internships (one on designing & analysis and other on construction processes) and 4 core projects (mostly related to concrete). I had also mentioned about the designing softwares I had learnt in my internship and as a course.
    Interview Tips
    Write each point in your resume properly depicting your core skills. Write about the learning outcomes from the projects and internships using easily understandable terms.
    Round 2

    Group Discussion

    Duration
    10 Minutes
    Group Discussion Topic
    Make in India :)
    Interview Experience
    I simply followed the tips mentioned below.
    Interview Tips
    There were 7 candidates in my GD group. Just grab opportunities to speak in between. Its great if you start or summarize or both. Try to put forward some different perspective/point if possible, rather than just agreeing or disagreeing with others and stand up to it. Eye contact is one important thing and the other is to address (turn head towards them) most of the people in your group while speaking. When someone speaks, your job is to listen while looking at them.
    Round 3

    Technical Interview

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: ----
    Interview Experience
    I had both HR and technical interviews at the same time in parallel. HR and Tech guy asked questions almost alternatively. It was chill, went on for 35 mins. Just to give you an idea, some of the questions were like, Define yourself in one word; Why should we visit your home city; Is Bandra-Worly sealink serving its purpose etc. They asked me about my projects and internships as well.
    Interview Tips
    Eye contact is very important, it makes you look confident at least, if you aren't.
    Don't be in a hurry to speak. Listen patiently and then you may take few seconds to frame your answer and then deliver. Speak only what you know about, as questions may escalate on something new which you have mentioned. And RELAX, as they are pretty chilled out.
