Tech Mahindra Interview Experience - Kolkata, October 26th, 2015
So, talking about the process, it was bit frustrating to focus on all sections and also on sectional cut off along with the technical knowledge that is required and some good basic hr questions. Well, focus on the aptitude round first.
For the aptitude round, you are likely to find all papers in the websites with all questions similar. As such I could only conclude one thing that solve basic numerical questions but try to solve in less than 30 seconds. Focus on the English portion followed by the quantitative and then the logical reasoning.
Remember, the logical reasoning is easy but very time consuming. So you gotta be quick with English basic grammatical portions, comprehension and the mathematical portion and then focus on the logical reasoning. During the last 15 minutes, I got very tensed because time was running out and still there were 40 questions left.
You have to be very quick enough and do not spend more than 1 minute on any question. If you are not sure about the right answer, go with the option c (example) for all time consuming questions.
I completed the entire thing with 2 minutes remaining (I went with the option C for most of the time) and submitted the answers and the page displayed congratulations message followed by some form fill up and then the essay writing. Do not be afraid about the 1024 characters to be filled in 10 minutes. Practice twice or thrice and that will do.
For the technical section, be prepared with the basic knowledge. They will be asking you questions on your strong subjects only and therefore you should be knowing the answers of that subject. I went with the subject DBMS and C and the interviewer came up with 17-18 questions.
Even before I finished answering, he was ready with the next question. Do not fear, if you know the answer, try to answer with an example and take time in answering with a smile on your face (and if the interviewer smiles back, bang on target). I could not answer 2-3 questions and I told him very politely. Still he asked me to try, and so I did and he helped me with the answer as well.
I was bit lucky at this point because I asked him a question and answered related to this technical question and asked him if I was correct and he replied yes followed by the next question (yes it was a rapid fire round). Finally did with the technical round.
HR round it was (4 candidates 1 HR). He was asking questions to all of us. He was very humble and very polite and friendly. The first question I survived was "What happened with TCS? How was it?" and I was like what? why is he asking about tcs? I answered him that I could not clear the aptitude round and then he asked me about if the aptitude of Tech Mahindra was easy as compared to tech Mahindra? I denied and told him that the aptitude of Tech Mahindra was more about time management.
He asked me about my day and experience with Tech Mahindra so far. The next question made me laugh for some seconds. He asked if my parents believed that Tech Mahindra came for campus drive on Lakshmi Puja (yes it was Lakshmi Puja that day) and I said yes they believed it and made up the answer.
Remember, he was being friendly but do not loose your professionalism. What I have heard is that he was trying to check our professionalism. He gave us an opportunity to ask questions and I asked him how he managed the entire thing as he was the only HR representative.
And after some print formalities, the results were declared and I made it into one of those 47 people out of 500. It was a happy day for some and good experience for others. The maximum elimination was in the aptitude round (100 made it out of 500) and then 49 people cleared the technical round and finally only 2 got rejected in HR. So prepare well with the verbal ability as well. All the best to all of you!
