PEROT SYSTEMS PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 04 APR 2007 - MUMBAI
My name is Ashish Dubey. I am in third year Electronics. Good news I got placed in PEROT Systems Corporation. The campus was arranged at Lokmanya tilak cllege of Engg, Navi Mumbai. Total 14 colleges were invited, around 680 candidates & surprisingly only 5 got placed. So u can assume it wasn't easy, infact.
Aptitude test 100 marks 45 minutes
English 25 marks 20 minutes
Technical Interview 2-interveiwer
HR interview 3-interveiwer
Aptitude test:- It was consisting 1 marks - 20 questions
2 marks - 15 questions
5 marks - 10 questions
1 marks had complete the series kind of quitions.
2 marks question were really tough rather time consuming. It was based on time & work, train, water stream and age problem.
5 marks question were logical totally on C-language. Flow chart & programs were given and was asked to find output, again was time consuming.
Suggestions:- Start solving 5 marks first. Can refer R.S. Agrawal but more than that Self Practice is must. Questions were easy but time consuming so practice for short cuts & better guessing power will also help.
English test:- It was really easy. Fill in the blanks & 4 options were given. I think no special practice is required for this.
Only 32 out of 680 cleared it.
Technical Interview:- It was really brain teasing. You must be very clear about your basics. Also u must have good command over C-language. Average time taken was around 45 minutes each candidate.
Q-asked :- What are structures in C? What is OOP in C++? Inheritance in C or C++? Construction & explanation of JFET, CMOS, MOSFET etc ? all basics...
Some candidate told to write different C-programs. Some were told to draw Electronic Ckt diagram. Some logical questions also.
Suggestions:- Nothing will help.... no luck factor.. only study hard.. be aware of your basics & some concrete C.
Only 13 out of 32 selected for HR round.
HR interview:- It was really a nightmare. 3 people were interviewing around 45 minutes each candidate. Questions were like.. tell me something about yourself ? why IT ? why can't u achieve same things in Electronics or Mechanical ? why u left your previous employment ? given a chance will u work for them again ? if not then why ? if same profile is in IT how will u survive ? Why should we hire you ? what it means by Professionalism ? about your hobbies...
Suggestions :- remember more than selection it was rejection round... don't lie... be ready to give examples of your hobbies.. be confident.. be calm, relaxed...they will bombard questions on u ? & will not give time u to speak..be polite & diplomatic in your approach.. don't act smart or over confident...
Only 5 finally got placed.
Credits:- parents & teachers first.... all my classmates who helped me both ways positively as well as negatively... all my friends.
Special thanks to our honorable TPO Mr. Chandran...for supporting me.. motivating me & always teaching me... his anger & shouting only helped me in HR round. Always talk to your TPO... ask for suggestions... ideas.. key areas to improve... it is beneficial for us not for him..
Common suggestion:- Nothing on luck.. getting placed is not by luck.. it requires a lot of practice.. start practicing from today itself..
