    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Essar Group.

    Interview

    Interview process was informal. Went through three rounds of interviews. Was recruited from campus. There was a pre-placement pitch followed by Q&A.

    First Round: Telephonic interview with a middle/junior HR manager (or campus recruiters) . Questions were general.

    Second Round: Interview with senior members of M&A team.

    Third Round: Interview with senior HR manager.

    Interview Questions

    • Most important round was the interview with senior department managers. Asked about the following:

      1. Valuation Concepts - FCFF, FCFE, Estimation of cost of capital, concept of terminal value, CAPM

      2. Project finance concepts - SPVs and their working, debt servicing and some questions related to the various risks of project financing

      3. Knowledge of basic business analysis including stuff like ratio analysis and debt-related ratios

      Interview was interesting but largely unstructured. Went according to where the conversation was going. The interviewers basically spoke of what the team does and intermittently asked a few questions. Very informal, conversational tone. Some questions required some considered thought before answering (30% of the questions), but not a very difficult interview process.
