Hi all, I attended Tech Mahindra off-campus drive on Jan 3, 2014 at Vardhaman Engineering college. My slot was at 12 pm.
The first round was online Aptitude and Verbal Test (170 question in 80 mins, No negative marking). Entire paper was divided in 11 Sections.
The test was easy but one needs to clear the sectional cutoffs. Many were rejected here.
Topics asked were.
Articles, Prepositions, parts of speech, Sentence correction, synonyms, word analogy, Subject object verb.
Non Verbal reasoning, Coding and decoding, Blood relations, Letter analogy, number series, direction sense.
Work and Time, Simple and Compound interest, percentages, Ratio and Proportion. Ages.
Then we had essay writing test. Topics were "does luck play an important role in your life?" and "do we have to study our past?".
We were asked to write 4-5 sentences.
Then we were given a form. The essay and other certificates we attached to the form and submitted. This is not an elimination round.
Then I had tech+hr round together. Some had them as two different rounds.
It was one to two panel. One was from technical department and the other was HR.
The interviewer asked me about my project.
I was a 2012 pass out so they asked me what I did in the last one year.
I was asked if I wrote any micro processor programming (I'm from ECE).
Why software field after ECE?
We discussed about the essay I wrote.
Questions like who is the PM, president, IT minister etc were asked.
And there were few general questions. Are you ready to relocate? are you ready to join immediately? etc etc.
The results were announced at 5 pm. Felt very happy that I got selected. They told that they'd sent the offer letter in a week or two.
I got the letter in less than a week. Joining very soon.
Please go through the interview experiences posted here. The interview experiences shared here helped me a lot to get through. Thanks to all those who have contributed to this.
Joining TechMahindra very soon. :).
