Tech Mahindra Interview Experience - Coimbatore, 7th April 2014
I attended the campus placement drive conducted by Tech Mahindra at Amrita School of Engineering, Ettimadai, Coimbatore.
144 attended the first round.
First comprised of an online test.
Total number of questions : 170.
Duration : 80 minutes.
NO negative marking.
100 questions verbal and 70 questions aptitude.
ALWAYS, do the verbal section first.
Questions are quite easy. Clearing first round is not a tough task.
Of the 144 who attempted the test 54 cleared it.
Results were announced within 15 minutes.
Then we were given an application form to fill in and we were asked to write a short essay on any topic. We were given 30 minutes time for this.
Essay writing is a non elimination round. They might ask questions based on this essay in the HR interview round. Their main intention is to check your vocabulary and grammar. Don't make silly grammar mistakes. Write legibly. Don't strike off words or sentences.
Next round was Technically Round.
I collected the interview experience of all my friends.
Only questions they asked were.
1) Tell me about yourself.
2) Explain about your project.
3) Where did you do your internship (If you have mentioned about it in resume).
For CSE students, they asked some core questions and asked to write code of teir final year project.
For other branches, they didn't ask a single question regarding anything technical.
Of the 54 students who attended technical round, 37 cleared it and went for HR round.
HR questions were,
1) Tell me about yourself?
2) What is your goal in your life?
3) Why should I hire you since you are from non CSE background?
4) Are you ready to relocate?
5) Is there anything else I should know about you?
Results came out the same day evening. Of the 37 who attended the HR, 32 got placed and luckily I was one among them.
I have an advice for all of you.
Tech Mahindra was the 14th company I attended. Of this 14, I went to the final round for 9 companies. Many times, after the interview I felt that I did really well and will get placed for sure.
But to my bad luck didn't get selected each time. Many of my friends stopped attending companies since they got dejected.
Always try try try your level best till you achieve your goal.
Remember the story of King Bruce and the spider. King who lost 6 battles in a row got inspired from the way the spider was trying to make the web.
All the best everyone!
