I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Ashok Leyland in November 2012.

Interview Details – There was an computer aptitude test. It was the same as the previous year questions but it is difficult to get all questions to prepare for in advance. There are some Ashok Leyland Aptitude questions available online. They will be asked 100% of the time. You will get free marks by memorizing the answer for those questions. You will not be able to answer all questions because you won't have time. But if you want to clear aptitude, in the last 5 minutes, you should try to randomly answer all the questions since there is no negative marking. Give option b or c for the answers you do not know or for the questions you have not read because of lack of time. I cleared the aptitude with 15 other students out of 350 students who took the test. The interview felt a little unfair. They ask you questions based on your area of interest. My area of interest was thermodynamics and heat transfer and the interviewer asked a few basic questions to me. In the end those who got selected in my batch were not based on how they performed in the interview but they took the 6 students with the highest CGPAs. You have a higher chance of getting in if you have good CGPAs as some of my fellow class mates who bombed the interview and performed so badly that the interviewer asked him if he knew anything, got in. The package is good for an engineering company. Most of my friends who got in went to do MS like me. I did my final year project in Ashok Leyland and I realized that the work they had for me did not interest me at all. So when trying to get into big name companies like Ashok Leyland, Ford etc, check if the work there interests you by doing internships or projects. For me Ashok Leyland was not a good fit and I was glad I did not get selected in the interview later.

Interview Question – The interviewer asked me what were the alloys of brass. I got very confused because brass itself was an alloy and here he was asking me what the alloys of brass were. I guess he was asking me for the alloying elements of brass which are copper and zinc. But at that time I was not able to answer lol.   Answer Question
