  • Question 2: Do you have any questions for me ?
  • Question 3: Introduce yourself ?
Interview Experience
I introduced myself along with stating my strengths and weakness, that is, my managerial skills urging the interviewer to ask questions about my strengths. I have organized several cultural and technical festivals in my college and I also have statistical figures to prove what i am capable of to the interviewer.

The questions which I asked him are :-
1. What is the biggest challenge Tata has ever faced and how did it overcome it ?
2. What do you like the most about your job? (The interviewer was Regional Manager)
And some 2 or 3 more questions similar to the ones mentioned above.

Interview Process
Test Resume Shortlist Technical + HR Interview
Round 1

Test

Duration
2 Hours
No. of Questions
120 questions
Test Sections
  • Section 1: Technical
  • Section 2: Aptitude
  • Section 3: Workplace Complacency Section
Interview Experience
The test was a very lengthy test with 5 sections for 2 hours. The amount of content that had to be read in the question paper is exceptionally high. There were huge paragraphs to be read and answered. There was an intriguing section, in which a set of tasks mentioned, each of them of unique nature and taking different time for completion and we had to number the tasks in our order of priority, which would ensure the tasks being completed as per time. That particular section was tedious and time taking as we had to read the tasks again and again to fully understand and compare them with each other. Overall, the exam, I'd describe it as more tedious and tiresome than analytically difficult.
Interview Tips
One has to maintain the same high level of analytical ability throught the test despite mental fatigue to complete the test in stipulated time. Practicing in that direction would certainly help.
Round 2

Round 3

Technical + HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Tell us a bit about yourself.
  • Question 2: What is your current project?
  • Question 3: Deep technical questions on project.
  • Question 4: The domain we're hiring for is not exactly what you're mastering in. Would you be able to adapt and be willing to do work that you aren't much familiar with?
Interview Experience
I answered most of questions asked on my project and other technical questions as well. For the question on non familiarity of work, I answered that I would consider it as a challenge and I'd be excited about such inter domain work as it would be a great opportunity to learn and expand my knowledge.
Interview Tips
A good opening statement makes most difference in interview. Being prepared for most of standard questions will prevent anxeity during the first few minutes of interview. When asked about yourself, starting by thanking them for the opportunity will certainly help. Whatever you're saying about yourself in the interview, keep an example demonstrating that quality in hand. And don't lie in the interview, we may think that we can manage by lying, but HR can easily see through it. Confidence and believing in yourself is key to crack any interview. Wear a smile in all appropriate moments during interview.

Round 1

Resume Shortlist

Interview Experience
its just a bit of luck needed for this round. the main thing is that your Resume has been viewed by them and then only you are shortlisted. unless until they got an eye on your resume, you can't be selected. Sometimes its a hard luck that your resume is not selected but by fellow readers, don't loose your heart, try try until you fly.
Interview Tips
your resume should be to the point and try to finish it in just 2 pages. Just show the juices in you, not the hard-work work behind them. Its not the right place. "Brag" as much as you can but but ..... I am stressing on But, brag about that only about which you know completely. always remember that, Judges behavior always depends on your resume. Their Questioning will be completely related to the stuff you have tried to mention in your Resume. So always mention those things only about whom you can give the details.

Tata Motors Territory sales manager interview

Ashwin DhakrasExperiencedSelected
Application
I Applied for job through Campus Recruitment for Territory sales manager role at Tata Motors
Interview Process
Resume Shortlist Group Discussion HR Interview Technical Interview
Round 1

Resume Shortlist

Interview Experience
I come from a 29 months work ex in Automobile Industry. However, I wasn't shortlisted in first 2 lists. Later, when some of the placement committee members pushed for me personally, I was the only candidate shortlisted in third list.

In campus recruitment, you need to be extremely lucky if the first selection is CV based. In a campus like KJ SIMSR, where recruiters generally get around 200-250 CVs, its unlikely that they'll look at them personally and completely. CGPA and Work Ex (having more can also go negative) are general filters.
Interview Tips
Either make sure that you are one of the best CGPA holders or have good access to recruiters so that they look at your other credentials too. (Good relations with PCommers could be really helpful in this.)
Round 2

Group Discussion

Duration
15 Minutes
Group Discussion Topic
Case Study: Tata Magic
Interview Experience
After getting shortlisted at 11:45am, I was told to sit for the GD at 12:10pm. But since it was a case study based discussion, everyone was on the same page. HR guy explained the case study to all of us and asked us to put our individual points in first 5 mins. Then it was opened for forum. It went on very peacefully without any interruption by the moderators (more because very few of the participants had a little bit of product knowledge). We were asked to plan marketing stratergy for TML's commercial vehicle Tata Magic which is used for passenger movements. Out of 12 participants, 4 were shortlisted including me.
Interview Tips
Start well, speak less, speak sense. Save your best words to close in last two lines.
Round 3

HR Interview

Interview Experience
HR interview was very generic. Reason to join Automobile, Team Handling capabilities, role description, past experiences. I have worked with Tata Motors before as a vendor in my previous company. So I could take many known names, discuss various experiences in detail. Tatas are known for ethics. And trust me, as far as my experience is concerned, I have really felt that its people who work there, make it really special. HRs made me very comfortable and complete interview experience was really nice.
Interview Tips
Speak the truth. Company like Tata Motors have been recruiting people since last 60 years. They'll catch you if you're lying.
Round 4

Technical Interview

Interview Experience
Tech interview was not that difficult. I had spoken to one of my friends in service department who helped me a lot with pros and cons of TML products. I knew the market wise performance of the company. Hence, I am sure that I scored the most there. Being an experienced candidate, the interviewer took me on a discussion level than interview. Some of the basic guesstimate questions were like,

1. What is TML's market share in Commercial Business
2. Why TML commands so much of MS?
3. Why do you think Ashok Leyland is doing better in South and not anywhere else?

Just have some basic knowledge about Automobile industry and you should be through. They don't expect you to know everything.
Interview Tips
Learn, study or talk to people who are working in the company. People are very simple here. So don't try to impress them with your style. They'll get impressed with sensible, real knowledge and material that you have. If you are a fresher, then obviously they won't expect you to have product knowledge and information on commercial vehicle industry. But you should be able to convey your passion for Automobile Industry and domain for which you are being interviewed.

General Tips
Be properly dressed. Speak clear, speak sense, to the point. Don't try to show off. Ethics are very much important in this organization. So don't say otherwise in interviews. The company can have gone places if it starts following market practices. But its firm on what it is doing and will stick to it.
Motivation for applying
Past work ex as a vendor, people who work there, excellent leadership that company has had in past.
Funny Moments
I knew that I was selected even more finishing my interview. As I mentioned earlier, I wasn't shortlisted in first two lists. So I missed the presentation that TML gave to all shortlisted candidates. Hence I requested the interviewer to go through the presentation so that I don't miss on anything important. He replied with a question asking me if I really need any presentation to know more about the company?

I was interviewed on-campus at NIT Durgapur for Get role at Tata Motors
Interview Process
Test Group Discussion Technical Interview
Round 1

Test

Duration
90 Minutes
No. of Questions
90 questions
Test Sections
  • Section 1: 1. Aptitude
  • Section 2: 2. Technical
Interview Experience
The test was conducted via amcats.com. In aptitude section, quantitative, logical reasoning and verbal ability were three subsections and questions were more or less easy.In technical section, standard sets of questions ranging from machine design, thermal engineering to industrial engineering, almost all topics under mechanical engg., were included. Level of difficulty was medium.
Interview Tips
For aptitude, basic +2 knowledge coupled with some practice to increase speed is essential.For technical, a general overview of all the topics studied in earlier semesters under mechanical engineering including mathematics is needed.
Round 2

Group Discussion

Duration
20 Minutes
Group Discussion Topic
Glass Ceiling: Does gender equality exist in Indian Incorporates?
Interview Experience
Topic was nice and arguments on both fronts could be presented. An example is that in core engg. sector, although there is a minimal presence of women (which is a reflection of the fact that very few girls opt mech/ee/civil etc streams), the IT or Software sector doesn't face similar problems and upto certain level can boast of being equally harbouring geniuses from both genders alike.
Interview Tips
Be calm and try not to get into a fight with any member of the group. Always remember, this is a discussion and not a debate. Keep your points brief and salient and present them with confidence. Forget about the interviewers and make yourself comfortable. If you are unable to fathom the topic or come up with solid points at the spur of moment, take time and keep notes of others' arguments. Best of luck!
Round 3

Technical Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: 1. Draw a 4-speed synchromesh gearbox. (A bomb at the beginning which was timely diffused since I had drawn it ago)
  • Question 2: 2. Tell me how transmission occurs from engine to wheel?
  • Question 3: 3. Basic questions on IC Engines like octane numbers etc.
  • Question 4: 4. What is limited slip differential? How it works?
  • Question 5: 5. Questions on fluid engg. like working of venturimeter etc.
  • Question 6: 6. Questions on machine design like how screw-jack works? how to increase efficiency? etc.
Interview Experience
My first question was "Tell me about yourself", which was the only HR question I was asked. So, I'm mentioning it in the technical portion itself. I calmly gave an answer which was semi-prepared and semi-modified at that moment.
In technical portion, most questions being from automobile engg, it was advantageous for me since its my favourite portion from mech. engg. All the questions were fundamental and doesn't need deeper knowledge of the topics.
Interview Tips
In a technical interview, knowledge and knowledge alone can help you. So, prepare the topics according to the company's job profile. No need to dig deeper into any special topic unless if you have spare time. Present your answers with a confident smile and clearly mention if you don't know answer to any question.
Skills

  • Speed
  • Confidence
  • Accuracy
Skill Tips
Speed and accuracy comes from practice and practice alone.Confidence comes from experience and over dominance over the subjects.
General Tips
As already mentioned, be confident yet humble. Humility gains you respect and respect gains you points in case your interview goes awry. At the end of the day, it finally comes down to the nature of the interviewer and how much you can make him feel your worth in his market. Sale yourself properly and even under utter absence of technical knowledge you can bag a job.
Motivation for applying
I have always wanted to join an automobile company and Tata Motors is one of the forerunner in the automobile sector globally. The association of Tata name is enough to motivate me to join this marvel of a company.
Funny Moments
When I was asked "Tell me about yourself". I cracked a joke in the middle of my answer saying "I am a training and placement representative of my college and I interact with students and company people on a frequent note and try to get my friends as many jobs as possible and right now I am doing the same by mentioning this fact to you ". They smiled heartily and I went on adding "Hopefully this way, I shall help myself bag the job at the end of the day". At the end of the day, I did get the job!!  (*Chuckles")

Before starting the actual group discussion HR asked us that “any one of you can stand up voluntarily and tell us about your college". Here I took the initiative and spoke about the MNIT (bit of history, about departments, about achievements of the college, about various technical and non-technical activities which was going on.) until HR stopped me.After that i started the Group discussion. I spoke 3 times in whole GD and concluded in the end as well.

I told them about SAE Efficycle. Then they asked me "what do you excite in Automobile industry?" I told them about Latest technology and SUVs. Then they asked about what are the latest technologies in Automobile industries. I told them about CRDI & VVT. Then they asked me if I give 5 lacs rupees and ask you to buy a car which parameters you will look as a mechanical engineers? Then they ask me about Turbocharger? Then they try to puzzle me.
