90 mins
Difficulty
Medium
Interview Experience

This was 90 min test on Hirepro platform. The round consisted of 4 sections:
1. DI -> This was relatively tough section and an extremely time consuming one. To clear this you need to practice a lot and speed was the key here.
2. Logical Reasoning -> This was an easy section in all, the question were solvable. Topics were like numbers, directions, find the missing number etc.
3. Quant-> This one was easy too, there were questions on probablity, PnC, speed and time, etc.
4. Verbal-> This too was quite easy, basic english questions related to grammar and some reading comprehension as well. Basic knowledge would be suffice for this one.
There was no sectional time limit, you are free to float across sections. So the main thing is manage your time effectively, as the DI one consumes around half of the time.

Interview Experience

This round was a 60 min test on python and sql. There were total of 8 questions 4 from each.
The questions mainly focused on pandas, numpy. If you have good knowledge about these libraries you can solve the 4 python questions.
The sql ones were on JOINS. Multiple joins were needed to solve the questions.
If you have an average knowledge about these languages you can solve these questions. The questions were related to data analysis basics.
The company already told that this round wont be a criteria for shortlisting so just sloving 1/2 question out of those 8 would be suffice.

Interview Experience

Around 30 students were shortlisted from the technical rounds. This one was a fairly easy round, It started with ," Tell me about yourself ".Then the interviewer just went through my cv and asked me question related to my previous internships. Then we had some discussion on new python and C++. This round was mainly to test your communication skills, your fluency and to check your confidence.

Round 4

Technical Interview

Time
15 mins
Difficulty
Medium
Interview Experience

Some of the candidates were shortlisted after the first round. This round again started with the interviewer going through my CV. I was asked some questions on my CV. After that he gave me a case study, " There is a company X, its profits are decreasing what would you do?". Such questions do not have a definite answer, interviewer just looks for the approach. In my case the interviewer just liked the way I started approaching the case and he was fairly convinced, this one fairly lasted for more than a minute in my case.
In this round many of the candidates were even asked some guesstimates.

Round 5

HR Interview

Time
15 mins
Difficulty
Easy
Interview Experience

This was the easiest of them all. This was like a normal conversation with the HR. She asked me few typical HR questions like my weakness, how I work under a team. She then went through my CV and asked the reason for my low pointer.
The main thing is to be confident and calm. Be thorough with your CV and you should know each and everything written in your cv.

Other comments

The key in this was to manage time effectively in the written tests, practice as much as possible. You can practice question from various sites online like indiabix, faceprep etc
Practice the typical HR questions and have a rough answer ready.
Company was more interested in confident people and quick learners as well.
Always ask questions to the interviewer, this is a great opportunity to portray that you are actually interested in the company and ready to learn new things as well. Never miss this opportunity.
