Executive Trainee (E2) Interview

Executive Trainee (E2)
Noida (India)

I applied through other source and the process took 3 months - interviewed at GAIL in May 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online in December 2012. The shortlisting for interview was based on the score of GATE 2013. I was shortlisted in April as I had an all india rank 285 and I got the interview date in the end of May .

The interview was a roller coaster ride. It was a panel interview which started off with a couple of HR questions. At this stage I had a quite an interesting discussion with the panel about my hobby (reading novels). Then the technical questions were quite detailed and mainly dealt with pumps, compressors, IC engines, & gas pipeline transmission. Afterwards they asked what i know about the company's profile & operations.

Finally, the asked some questions relating to Contracts & Procurement. Overall, the technical questions were not easy, but it was a pleasant interview and the interaction was quite friendly.

Interview Question – What do you think is your weakness? And give a situation where you have turned it around to be of advantage to you.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation as all the terms were already fixed in a public sector enterprise.
