This round was a case study round. A case study was given which was needed to be solved in around 30-45 minutes. The approach mattered most instead of just focusing on the final answer. Practice some case studies from google.

This round was all about explaining your approach to the case study. Any alternatives that could have been done. Support your answers with logical assumptions from the case study itself. As I mentioned earlier your approach matters and if you've got the final answer that's bonus!

Round 4

Technical Interview

30 mins

Interview Experience

This round starts with your basic understanding of the company and why you're applying for this job. Prepare an answer as to why you're not going for higher studies. Further, the round tested your guestimate skills. I was asked to calculate how much paint will be required to paint an airplane. Always start approaching the problem from the lowest possible level. Assume the length and width of the plane based on the seats available and then go forward. Support your length assumptions with some logic. For length measurements, I kept in mind my height and then gave any value to the measurements. Practice guesstimates online.

Round 5

HR Interview

Time
30 mins
Difficulty
Medium
Interview Experience

This round starts with basic HR questions. Also, further my SQL knowledge was tested as I had mentioned that in my CV. I was asked some basic query questions and then I was given a problem related to Elevator. Focus on approach. Try to engage your interviewer. Tell him whatever your thinking whatever you're planning, right or wrong doesn't matter. Just don't be silent. Overall this interview was chill.
