I was interviewed on-campus at IIT Madras for Get ( graduate engineer trainee ) role at Vedanta Resources in Dec, 2016
Interview Process
Resume Shortlist Group Discussion Technical + HR Interview
Round 1

Resume Shortlist

Interview Experience
Out of 99 B.Tech students who applied from CH,ME,EE,MM departments, around 60 were shortlisted for the GD
Interview Tips
I am not sure but I guess the criterion for shortlist was CG>7.5
Round 2

Group Discussion

Duration
30 Minutes
Group Discussion Topic
GST-Readiness of industries
Interview Experience
Even before the GD began,we were asked if we knew what responsibilities the role entails and why we prefer to work in Vedanta.I had gone through their website ,so I mentioned that I believed in their chairman's vision of providing a career and not just a job to every employee and thus was excited and looking forward to my career ahead. Though this question wasn't a part of the GD,it gave a good impression to the GD panelists as they got to know that I had gone through their website in detail which indicated my interest in joining the firm.

Coming to the GD topic, I was surprised that none of my GD team mates knew what GST is. A few of them had a vague idea but knew nothing much.So,I took the step and started off the GD explaining them what GST is and Modi Govt.'s plan to go about introducing this.Then I went ahead into the topic and said we had to discuss the advantages and disadvantages that industries face due to this step taken by the Govt. A few of my team mates were quite interactive and most of them contributed.The GD was concluded within the given span of time.
Interview Tips
Regarding tips, I would say be thorough with the current affairs.When you read an article from the paper/magazine,make sure you form strong opinions on the same(either positive or negative).It will be disheartening for the GD panelists to see that a student from such an esteemed institute doesn't even have the slightest idea of what's happening within the country. Also,be sure you communicate your thoughts properly.Every core company you are sitting for will have a GD round.Only after you clear the GD will you be allowed to sit for the interview. Please don't be under the impression that only your CGPA/core knowledge will get you a very good core job. Communication skills and general awareness is the key.
Round 3

Technical + HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: HR questions: 1.Tell me about yourself 2.Tell me about your family background 3.If there is one thing which you want to change in your past,what would that be? 4.What is one thing you want to change about yourself?
  • Question 2: Technical: 1.What did you do as an intern at Vizag Steel Plant? 2.What factors should we consider when designing a mill for cold rolling? 3.Name some ores from which copper can be extracted? 4.Write down the reactions for extraction of Copper from Copper pyrites? 5.What is the process difference between extraction of Cu and Fe from its ores? 6.Are there any emulsions used during hot rolling? If so,why? 7.How is the air:oxygen ratio used for heating in the reheating furnace decided?What are the factors considered? 8.What are the different fuel burners used in the reheating furnace? 9.How do we control the purity level of the final product obtained after rolling?
Interview Experience
I was calm and composed throughout the interview.I had four other interviews lined up in the day,so I thought not getting this company isn't a big deal.Maybe this made me perfom in the interview really well.My entire technical round was based on my internship at Vizag Steel Plant and certain questions based on Copper extraction.I did answer all the questions (except one where she had asked me to apply mass balance).However,I knew that the answers weren't to the point and perfect.But one thing you should remember is that you have been studying your specialisation for 4years.So,you will definitely recall more than the person sitting opposite to you who had done his/her specialisation in the same subject around 10-15 years back.The trick is to come off as confident in your answers and make them sound logical and convincing.Think out loud and explain your thought process to the interviewer.
Interview Tips
Be chill in the interview.This is possible if you have back up interviews for other companies.So give all your tests properly.Also,apply to all companies, atleast those in the first three days of placements .The more the number of companies you apply to, the higher the chances of getting placed within three days.Placements are pretty random,so it's highly possible that you may never end up with the company of your choice or your dream company and you may regret not applying to the other companies later.


For HR questions, use 64HR questions book for the questions but format your own answers related to your experiences so that they don't sound fake.
Also,when the interviewer asks at the end of the interview if you have any questions please make sure that you ask sensible questions.DONT ask questions like what your responsibilities will be as a GET or the skills for the role as all this will be mentioned in the JD.Be more specific about your questions. And also,if you have gone through their website,make sure you add relevant points in that subtly in your answers like for example you can include why you want to join Vedanta in the question on tell me about yourself citing examples from their website.These tips mentioned are for any company.If you get the tricks right, any interview will be a cake walk.
