Guwahati (India)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Indian Oil in December 2010.

Interview Details – it was a panel of 5 interviewers. It comprised of DGMs n EDs and one CM. What I felt was they were looking for people who were confident with whatever they say. My personal experience was that I had answered two questions wrong but they dint press further. Either they dint know the correct answer or they liked the confidence with which I spoke. That doesnot mean One can be arrogant in an Interview.

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Indian Oil in August 2008.

Interview Details – I was lucky I had to face just one personal interview at my campus to get selected. They selected the candidates for interviews from amongst the students who applied based on their GPA and extra curricular activities. The interview panel comprised of four very senior people. They must be of general manager rank in engineering, state office, or HR departments. The interview began by the interviewers introducing themselves. Then they asked me to introduce myself. They were consistently trying to make me feel comfortable. I was one of the two people selected out of about 20 who were interviewed from my campus. Overall it was a very good experience.

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation involved. It was a fairly straightforward offer, which is expected from a government company. They hire hundreds of engineers every year and the salary is pretty much the same to every one.

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Indian Oil in September 2011.

Interview Details – It was very peasant interview process with the interviewers trying to test the basic knowledge regarding the subjects (mine was mechanical). They were mainly concerned about my industry interface i.e. the industrial training i had gone through and questions were mainly what i learned from the training and how i interpreted the things. In depth knowledge in subjects like thermodynamics,heat transfer,material science and manufacturing process has the maximum leverage.
