Another experience posted on Facebook group.

Name : Abhishek JobanputraEXPERIENCE:
Place: Institute of Social & Economic Change, Bangalore
Time: 0900 hrs

There were around 50 ppl in our batch divided into three batches.
In my batch 14 were present.
First we had to write an essay on the topic:
Time: 25min, max 500 words.

After that we had a gd on a case study given as follows:
John is an employee in the HR dept. of a company. He is recruiting candidates for a new position in the company. His supervisor has told him to consider Smita, who is the daughter of the president of their client. He was asked to favour her. Clearly she is not suitable for the position. What should John do?

We were supposed to give an intro each, then GD for 7-8 minutes and then each person has to conclude in a minute.

As soon as the time started, nobody gave a chance to introduce per person. It was a complete fish market(as expected... how can 14 ppl be in a single gd?!?!). At the end of 7-8 minutes, we were stopped and asked to conclude one by one.

Then came the PI.
There three panelists throughout the entire process: 2 gentlemen (G1, G2) & a lady (L1)

L1: Good Morning. Please give me your 10th 12th marksheets. (Given)
L1 looks at G1 and G2 and says: It seems you were very much interested in physics and maths in school.
Me: Yes ma'am. This led me to choose mech. engg.
L1: So you are working in ONGC. How do you contribute to ONGC's success?
Me: Explained about my job profile.
G1: What is efficiency?
Me: Told.
G1: How can you measure your team's efficiency?
Me: Told.
G1: Yes but there is a formula you must have learnt in college about efficiency.
Me: Q2/Q1 x 100 where Q2 is output & Q1 is input.
G1: So how can you relate this formula for calculating your teams efficiency in ONGC?
Me: We calculate in terms of man hours sir. (G1 didn't seem convinced)
L1 interjects: Ok so you have been posted in Tamil Nadu for the past 2 years. We three are tourists and you have to sell Tamil Nadu to us in 5 sentences.
Me: Told.
G2: Have you heard of tollywood?
Me: Yes.
G2: I've heard that tamil nadu is the only place where they make temples for celebrities.
Me: yes. Told about places.
L1: So if you get selected by Nirma then would leave your job or take a leave for 2 years?
Me: Told. and also talked about my short term and long term goals.
L1: can you tell me about the major industries in your city?
Me: Told.
G2: Can you tell me about ONGC Videsh Ltd.?
Me: Answered.
Finally, they told me to go.
Interview lasted for around 15minutes.

All the best to you guys!!

Any other special thing about you:
Varied interests - politics, diplomacy etc. Decent Extra currics
TOPIC- Rules are meant to be broken
TIME- 20 Mins
Was ok types.... Could write about 450 words, but filled with bakwaas. Self rating 3/5

Topic: Situation of HR having to interview and choose whether to be biased or not - already mentioned by people in prev posts.
Number of Ppl present: Batch Size 18, 15 present.
Time: They said 8 mins, we got arnd 15.
Brief Snapshot of Discussion: FISHMARKET. Everyone was yelling, some people were trying to restore order, but people invariably broke in. Was very messy, had to yell and interrupt a few times. Lots of one on one conversations also going on in between discussion.

verdict: disappointing and probably picked up some negatives for interrupting. Not trying to justify, but everyone was doing the same, I was bang in front and got noticed for it. At least I was saying something different while everyone else was basically repeating teh same points.

Other Salient Details: First 1 min to think and write. They collect the papers where u write the points. Then 8 min discussion - finallly 1 min each to sum up and present views.

Panel Members Intro: 1 HR faculty, 1 Operations and 1 Mktng prof. HR faculty was articulate and did a good job in organizing.

I was no. 12 in my batch of 18, it was already 1.30 by the time I got in. Next slot ppl had come and were waiting outside. So it was short.

Q: Tell me abt your work.
Q: So what is JPMC(the client I work for)?
Me: Bank
Q: What is the role of public sector banks in India?

Q: U did BE in ECE. What is microprocessor?

Q: Who is the biggest maker of MPs?
A: Intel.
Q: Who else makes them?
Q: What is Intel's philosophy?
A: They try and stay in pace with moore's law. - Guesswork.
Q: What is moore's law?
A: Said whatever I remembered about it - and said I am not sure of it.
Q: So u kept on interrupting in the GD. Why so? Did u find it difficult to get your point across?
A: I am sorry if it came across that way, It was entirely unintentional if it came out that way, I was only trying to be in the fray in a fishmarket situation and introduce a new perspective to the discussion.
Q: Wat other calls?
Q: Results?
A: Not out yet.

You may go.

PHEW!!! I am hoping it was not very bad, I sure know it was not grt. Fingers crossed. Feedback is welcome.
Since it was the first day things were rather haphazard. First few in each batch got long intvws and towards teh end it was very short. It happens everywhere but I felt this was more than normal. Stay cool, try to get familiar with the GD mates and work out some order. My personal opinion is that the GD size of 18 is WAY TOO MUCH for a meaningful discussion that too in jus 8 mins.

Dear all,My girlfriend appeared for the GD/PI today at Kolkata.I am sharing her experiences with her sitting next to me.

p1:ok u can leave
m:again a series of thank yous..


the ma'm who was there was making such faces as if M was a repelling insect!dont get frightened ,might be putting in and testing some stress scenarios by that.

It was an okayish one,but not too good...

Venue : ISEC, Bangalore

The above post gives the essay topic and topic of GD, so i wont repeat it.

Would just like to say that u should pray that max ppl are absent it ur grp
Saying this because there were 15 ppl (ok but still high) in my group and my friend was in a grp of 19 ppl! In the GD, approx 10 mins are given for open discussion, so it could get difficult to get good time to speak in a grp of 19-20. One good thing is that they allot 1 min in the end for each to conclude....

The PI also got over pretty fast. For me it was for abt 15 mins, the ppl towards the end had been sent back in 5 mins , just so that the process could be completed by 2 pm. Slight mismanagement frm NIRMA i would say, if they are calling a larger grp of students this time (i believe 80 was the cut off??), the group strength should not have been more than 12 or max 15.....ATB to all

slot:13th mar 1:00 pm..

essay topic: attitude determines altitude
loads of gyaan:-)


one of the most difficult pi as they take only for 5-7 min within which you have to form impression..
on top of dat they ask very weird questions..
mam was too difficult to convince wid any ans..
its not goin to be as smooth as other interviews..
all the best..
be prepared for lot of questions on GK..
to be honest i find it difficult to understand dat y is GK given more priority than Work-ex..they should better ask abt the kind of work we have done rather than asking who is the CM of goa..atleast dint make sense to me..

TOPIC- Rules are meant to be broken
TIME- 20 Mins
Wrote a nice essay. Felt great after completing it with a befitting example to support my opinion.

A situation where a HR guy is asked to hire their client's boss's daughter who however is not qualified for the post. It was to be discussed what should this guy do?

My first GD and it was a fish market. More than discussing, people were trying to impress how they can be dominating. Some lady competitors were at the top of their voices and strangely the panelists seemed used to such situations. That sure is not the way they would behave in the campus placement GDs and nor in their offices. What I liked was that they gave each one in the group some time to express his/her view at the end of the discussion.

Judges: All permanent faculty of NIRMA. One HR lady Prof, one Marketing Prof and one Operations Prof.
Ops sir: Are you working?
Me: Yes. In Infosys Mangalore since 2008.
Ops sir: What is your Role?
Me: I am a SAP BW Consultant .
Ops sir: What is SAP BW?Does it come under operations?
Me: Informed him .
Mktg sir: Who is the CEO,CFO and COO of your company?
Me: answered.
Mktg sir: What is the project AADHAR and who leads this project?
Me: answered.
HR mam: Tell me your achievements?
Me: Told her my academic and professional achievements.
HR mam: What is ISO?
Me:told something which I had read sometime back.
Ops sir: Looking at my joining letters and salary slips, he asked me" What are these symbols in the bottom of these docs?"
Me: Sir those are the institues which gurantee authenticity and quality of the document.I was half sure.
Ops sir: Then why does not your salary slip have them? Are they not authentic?
Me: Sir thats because only an employee can login to the system and generate his pay slips and print them. This process itself has to pass through many levels of authentication.

All nodded in aproval and let me go.

I think it was a good PI. But seeing my score, I am not sure of converting it. However, I may make it to the waiting list

Had the same experience on 12th Mar @ Kol. The lady in the panel was too focussed on questions relating to Indian politics, ministers and their departments :drinking::drinking:
And to top it all, when she asked me about my favourite subject, I said Finance. Next she asked me how about Marketing, I said I was not too keen on Marketing and even after this she asked me questions on Marketing.. Still wondering about the reasoning behind that.

Almost everyone I know today was grilled, I'm a little tensed i wasn't!!
Wonder if they had written me off already!

Anyway, the write-up today was on the topic "Hard work verses smart work"

GD was on something like "if wishes were horses, beggars would ride....given a choice I would rather be rich than talented...". A minute to think and 8 minutes for discussion, 1 minute to each student to give summary!

TOPIC- Corruption is necesarry for success in any sphere
TIME- 25min
Overall an easy topic and could put down important points.
Topic: College degree no more gurantees a good job and this has been proved especially in this decade
Number of Ppl present 12
Time: 10min or so ( not sure though )
Brief Snapshot of Discussion: Overall a good discussion, felt ppl were concetrating only on engieerin degrees and dint bother to talk about odr degree like BCOM BCA BA etc etc. Cud have been a great discussion if this also was included.

A very decent group two times the discussion went into Fish market kind of a situation, but ppl were humble and decent enuf to come out of it. evry1 was allowed to put his point by the odr members.

In the end evry1 was asked to conclude ( personally felt ppl cud have spoke more bt wat can be done to avoid tis rather than just taking their stance on the topic.

1min for each person to giv his conclusion
