Interview Process
Test Group Discussion Technical Interview
Round 1

Test

Duration
60 Minutes
No. of Questions
60 questions
Test Sections
  • Section 1: Aptitude
  • Section 2: Technical
Interview Experience
The written round was fairly easy. 30 questions from each section. The aptitude section was easier which didn't pose any difficulty for most of the candidates. The technical part had basic questions to test the fundamentals.
The test had a different format where each question had a specific time limit. After attending a question there was no option to review it. Around 60-70 % of the candidates got selected for the next round.
Interview Tips
The trick lies in attending as many questions as possible. As said always accuracy matters. But then again it was not a national level exam. So all we had to do was clear the cut offs. And the no of students getting eliminated in this round was not high.
Round 2

Group Discussion

Duration
20 Minutes
Group Discussion Topic
Are women good managers.
Interview Experience
I had a descent experience. The discussion started well but turned rough towards the second half where students started mentioning biased points towards there own gender. Overall it was not that fierce. I started the discussion. The panel had 8 students with 2 moderators. We allowed each and everyone to present their points. 5 students got selected for the personal interview round. Only the ones who had spoke very little were eliminated.
Interview Tips
Well there are lots of tips which are available online on how to tackle GD's. But from my personal experience i would like to state that if you are not well aware of the topic then take the risk and start or initiate the discussion. It's easier to introduce the topic covering the basic points. Or else you can give a suitable conclusion at the end by collecting the points and summering the overall topic.
Round 3

Technical Interview

Interview Experience
Although i have titled it as a technical interview , it was a technical cum HR interview. The discussion went on for approximately 30 minutes. Starting with my internship experience they covered core areas of automobile industry. I was able to answer most of them and denied politely to whichever questions i didn't know the answer to. They asked about my future goals, my hobbies and achievements. Overall it was very interactive and a healthy experience.
Interview Tips
Be prepared to answer any question based on your resume. Pick your favorite subject and start preparing thoroughly. For e.g for TATA Motors (in fact for all the automobile companies) i covered basic areas of Automobile Engineering (my areas of interest were transmission and drivetrain) . Show some interest that you want to join their company. All in all try to be yourself and give your best. To avoid being nervous, believe that it's not the end. A lot of companies would visit later and life doesn't end here. So keep calm and be expressive.

Funny Moments
I was asked the length of football goal post and instead of 24ft i said 24m to which the panel started laughing and giving me suspicious looks. I rectified it quickly though. I guess i had lost my focus a bit towards the end of the round.

Interview Process
Test Group Discussion Interview
Round 1

Test

Duration
120 Minutes
Test Sections
  • Section 1: Online test
Interview Experience
There were four Sections :
1) Verbal
2) DI
3) Mental Ability Test (NTSE level format)

Round 2

Group Discussion

Duration
20 Minutes
Group Discussion Topic
Media -Judge jury or executioner
Interview Experience
There were 8 people in the GD.
The panelists were looking for new ideas and valid points, steering discussion, letting everyone speak, if someone didn't talk at all then encouraging him/her to speak, starting and concluding topic will be added advantage. Basically, all common GD things.
Interview Tips
But they were mainly looking for people who put forth their ideas and at the same time manage everyone and listen to everyone's point of view.
Round 3

Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: How would you specify a pneumatic cylinder to manufacturer ?
  • Question 2: How would you specify spring to manufacturer ?
Interview Experience
It was a 55-minute round with three panels, each having 2 interviewees (HR and Tech).

The questions were all rapid fire type until I stopped answering.
e.g
Panelist: How would you design a knife ?
Me: Safety, ease of use, good grip, ergonomics, less effort.
P: What material ?
Me: alloy steel (i was being careful!)
P: What alloy steel
Me: The one which has more wear resistance.
P: What property gives material more wear resistance ?
Me: Hardness
P: How will you increase material's hardness ?
Me: Annealing
P: Wrong, quenching.
Interview Tips
Prepare by going through all mechanical engineering stuff and go through all the projects thoroughly. Also, prepare everything in your resume.

I think I got in because of my automobile related projects and internships, especially, Mahindra and Mahindra R & D. I guess the interviewee had made his mind to take me in just by looking at my resume, but still during the interview he was testing my knowledge other than design.

    Skill Tips
    I started my preparations in October but I think starting earlier would have helped. My preparation pattern for the placements was:<br /> Core: Going through all the books again. Reading summery of topics, going through GATE/IES materials in Lan.<br /> Projects: All reports, ppt’s.<br /> Interview: Mock interviews with friends / IITMAA<br /> GD: Practice with wing-mates, some online sites like www.indiabix.com.
    General Tips
    Some things that an aspiring candidate should concentrate on:

    1) In depth knowledge and be through with your projects.



    2) Resume is one of the key things. If not in shortlisting, then at least in final interview it will matter a lot. Take help from everyone while writing your resume, take feedback from maximum people all around you.



    3) Practice GD/ Interview a lot, it will boost your confidence. Finally all comes down to your confidence and how you perform in interview. Don’t be stressed, chill out. Before interview have proper food/water and most importantly stay in a chilled out group of people.



    4) Know about the company you are sitting for. Get to know beforehand what they are looking for and then sell yourself in that way. It’s all about marketing yourself by projecting your good points with respect to their requirements.

      Round 2

      Group Discussion

      Group Discussion Topic
      Are smartphones making us dumb?
      Interview Experience
      I think this played a crucial role in my selection and gave me the upper hand over other candidates. We were 8 candidates in one group for GD. Before starting the actual group discussion they 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 he stopped me. Here I would like to give credits to my extra-curricular.
      Round 3

      Interview Experience
      HR plus Technical InterviewAs I was the Placement Coordinator also and was hosting their campus visit too, so i got an edge of it. In the interview first they asked me "Tell me about yourself & family background". Then they asked me "have you done any technical Projects?"

      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. They ask me that if we give you the “HR” profile will you accept it? I said no. I told them according to my qualification, I fit to a technical profile and it also excites me. Here they were basically cross-checking me interest.
      Interview Tips
      1. Be aware about the latest technologies in Automobile.

      2. You should know basics of Automobile Engineering & IC Engine

      3. Be confident & genuine in interview , don’t just give abrupt answer, if you don’t know the answer then tell them that I don’t know the answer or I am not recalling it.

      aptitude test Technical test Group Discussion technical interview
      Round 1

      aptitude test

      Interview Experience
      The aptitude test consisted of verbal, analytical and numerical questions with sufficient time to answer the questions.
      Round 2

      Technical test

      Interview Experience
      The technical test contained questions from almost all the compulsory courses that you may have studied over the past four-five years, mostly conceptual though but there were some numerical questions as well.
      Round 3

      Group Discussion

      Group Discussion Topic
      Is quality a myth in India ?
      Interview Experience
      There was a group discussion on the topic ‘Is quality a myth in India? ‘ to eliminate a few students and the rest were selected for the final interviews.
      Round 4

      technical interview

      Interview Experience
      Interview lasted for about 25-30 minutes. They started by asking about my interests and backgrounds and then came directly into questions related to my areas of interests. They asked questions about torque transmission through a shaft, I-beams, stress-strain and buckling and a little background about my thesis followed by one basic question related to it. The final 10-12 minutes were spent in discussing the questions that I had asked the interviewers and it also helped in lightening the mood, so I would suggest be ready to ask the interviewer a few questions to show that you are genuinely interested
      During the interview questions were asked mostly from my areas of interests and a little about my thesis and internships. But it is important to know one or two courses very thoroughly.

        General Tips
        Do’s and Don’ts :

        ● Do not take GD’s lightly, I ignored it till the very last moment and did my first GD on the night before the actual GD. It is a shortlisting criteria for many mechanical engineering core companies and you wouldn’t want to lose out there.

        ● Read about your thesis and internships properly. Many of your interviews would revolve around that only.

        ● Select one or two major courses and prepare them thoroughly, you may be asked about the courses that you liked at IITK followed by some questions related to it.

        ● Practice explaining your projects and HR questions with someone.

        ● Get to know a little about the company before the interview. You may drop that information somewhere during the interview to show your interest. Also be ready to ask a question at the end.

        ● Don’t copy answers to HR questions from the internet, write your own and try to remember the key points.

        ● Don’t lose heart if you are not shortlisted or not selected. There are a lot of other options.

          PI: Interview was on next day in NITP campus from 8 a.m. morning.
          As i was in last group in GD, so interviewed at last around 5 p.m. evening.
          Tired and afraid.
          I entered the interview room wid dr permission. Dy asked me whether i am tired, i told no, they were surprised and said that are they tired,,,,i replied may be.....both of them laughed.
          Both were from Tata motorsJamshedpur(Ashish:HR Manager and Amitabh:AGM Electronics).
          Then dy asked me to get relax and sit properly on chair, offered me biscuits and water, asked if i had food, i said no(true as it was off day..so no dhabas in NITP)...
          Den they told that i m d last person to be interviewed, what did candidates coming out of this room feeling or sharing. I told that persons coming out were not happy as u r asking only technical and not about projects n training. They laughed and gave me freedom to say what to ask.Started with NASA project,,,elaborated nicely and gave full answers to their questions, i gave them files related to that project n my contribution.
          Den HR suddenly asked that "leave all this,,say how was Florida?"....i explained with joy..tongue emoticon
          Den training in NTPC....questions and file i had prepared for that also.
          Finally technical questions and i answered what i know,,rest said tHAT i don't remember.All was going well.
          He also asked about my marks but smiled as i smiled after seeing my rank 1 in CV.

          In between, offered biscuits multiple times...wink emoticonAt last, he asked me to ask question if any
          Interview Tips
          Suggestion: 1) Practice less for aptitude in core companies.
          2) Go in deep for technical as interview gonna be too technical.
          3) Do prepare file in hard copy for each n every project or training with matter u know properly.
          4) In GD, always try to speak during start,,otherwise,,further,it becomes a argumentation fight..
          5)In PI, always smile with optimum confidence and reply in positive sense. Try to speak more in part u know more.

            Test

            Test Sections
            • Section 1: Written
            Interview Experience
            There are technical , aptitude and English. Anyone who have studied for GATE can do technical easily. For aptitude and English, it is just time management that matters. So, do aptitude questions as far as possible.
            I did almost all questions in all three sections. In technical section, I could not do last 3 question as time was over. That shows questions were very easy. In aptitude and english , almost all questions are simple except some tricky one.
            Interview Tips
            Do not waste time in any section, in which you have doubt as it was just a time management game and other questions are waiting to be answered that you know. You can easily find Tata Motors campus selection question paper online. If your aptitude is weak, give one week time for aptitude preparation.
            Round 2

            HR Interview

            Interview Questions
            • Question 1: HR interview was just a formality.
            Interview Experience
            It was pretty cool 5 min interview in which it was just asked that how was the technical panel and how you felt during interview.
            Round 3

            Technical Interview

            Interview Questions
            • Question 1: So you are Roshan Kumar from Jamshedpur... Why do you want to join TATA Motors?
            • Question 2: It was bit of discussion on FIP
            • Question 3: What may be the number of cars manufactured daily in India?
            • Question 4: Why petrol cannot be used in diesel engine and vice versa?
            • Question 5: What is volatality ? which is more volatile - diesel or petrol?
            • Question 6: He gave me two coupans - on 1st coupan it was written buy anything of worth 20 rs. by this coupan and on 2nd coupan it was written pay 20 rs and buy anything of worth 50 rs. I have been asked to select one coupan.
            • Question 7: Which car you want to buy after you will have enough amount of money?
            • Question 8: Why that car? I told BMW and answered as a status symbol, then he asked is not the problem in india to do everything for status?
            • Question 9: What was your B.tech project and detailed question on it?
            • Question 10: Question on product I made in M.tech..
            • Question 11: What was your internship in B.tech 3 rd year?
            Interview Experience
            The 1st question iteslf shows that technical panel was not basically only core technical , but mix of technical and HR and I think that's why HR panel was just formality. But,  the expectation of answer was not only HR point of view, but mix of both. When I answered just HR point of view then , interviewer(only one man was there to take interview in each case - technical panel and HR panel) asked about my technical interest too like interest in automobile , engine etc.
            Interview Tips
            Just be calm and make your basics clear on IC engine.

              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.
