Engineer Trainee Interview

Engineer Trainee
New Delhi (India)

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Bharat Heavy Electricals.

Interview Details – There was an All India Written examination for the 2008-2009 recruitment drive. The written exam was engineering discipline centric and was based on the academic background of the students. I applied for Mechanical engineering position and questions covered basic Mechanical engineering concepts from 4 years of bachelor studies and some logical reasoning questions.
As per latest guidelines, the process has been changed and now GATE examination results form basis of selection for Interview phase.

The interview was chaired by 3 BHEL senior employees. One was responsible for Psychological assessment and other two panel members were for Technical assessment. Questions were not too special. Just testing general engineering and personal skills.

Interview Question – None of the questions were very difficult. Be prepared with the basic questions pertaining to one's engineering background.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No Negotiations. Fixed salary structure
