IBM GBS Off-campus Interview Experience - 11th & 12th September, Kolkata
I'm from SKFGI, Mankundu and I had recently attended IBM GBS offcampus for M.Tech, MCA, B.Tech (2015/2016 batch) held at Techno India, Salt Lake campus on 11th and 12th of September, 2016.
On 11th Sept, we had 2 rounds:-
1st round:- Aptitude test consisted of
a) Number Series (18 questions) - Practise as many series questions as you can from previous year papers. Try to learn the logic used to solve each series.
Few questions which I remember:
i) 5, 16, 22, 68, 28, 87, 34, 106, 11, ?
ii) 1, 3, 1, 2.5, 5, 1, 4, 5, 4, 8, 7, ?
iii) 1, 1, 3, 2, 1, 5, 3, 4, 10, 4, 2, ?
iv) 5, 5, 7, 7, 9, 11, 11, 13, 13, 17, 15, 19, 17, ?
v) 0.03, 0.0018, 0.00108, 0.00648, 0.3888, ?
b) Quantitative Aptitude (18 questions): Practise from R.S. Aggarwal & www.IndiaBix.com. That would be enough to crack this section.
Few questions which I remember:
i) In a certain company, 20% of the men and 40% of the women attended the annual company picnic. If 35% of all the employees are man, what percent of all the employees went to the picnic?
ii) A letter has to be printed 100 lines with 80 character, if 40 character per line printed then how many lines it take?
iii) A company rented a machine for Rs.700/- a month. Five years later the treasurer calculated that if the company had purchased the machine and paid Rs.100/- monthly maintenance charge, the company would have saved Rs.2000/-. What was the purchase price of the machine?
iv) A person starts at 2.05PM with 40km/hr and reaches to 8.35 pm. then how much distance he travelled?
v) In a software company 4/10 of people know C++, 2/4 of them know java, 2/8 of them know neither,find the total possibility to know C++?
Remember, you have to solve 36 questions of Round 1 in 2min 15secs each. So time management is a v.imp factor to clear this round. There is no -ve marking so try to attempt all.
b) 2nd round was Business English Communication (22 questions in 20mins): Check out business letter format. This round is very easy and you can easily crack it if you're good in English. If you're not, Prepare questions repeat from previous year papers.
Almost 1000+ students attended this drive so they had combined the scores of 1st two rounds and declared the overall results at around 5pm. 140 cleared the written test and luckily I was one among them! :).
On 12th Sept, we had our interview. There were 8 panels. I had my interview for 45mins. :D
a) Explain your final year project?
b) Basic questions on C, JAVA, HTML5.
c) Why should we hire you?
d) What do you know about IBM?
e) Are you ready for relocation?
Along with this, some situation based HR questions were also asked. Answer every question confidently with a smile. Just give quick response to each question and be very frank. Almost 60 cleared the interview. Finally I'm an IBM'er now and I got my joining dates within 1 month.
Just a few months back, I was also one among you guys. Hope my interview experience helps! All the best & see u soon at IBM someday! :)
