Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Mu Sigma.

Interview Details

We had to go to an information session and then a pre-night event. In between the two, we received an email for links to 1) an aptitude test (kind of like the SAT) and 2) a link to a video (we need to provide our synthesis of the content in the end). The pre-night event covers everything in the video again and is sort of an Q&A session.
Later we receive an invitation to an hour-long interview, during which they give you 2-3 mini-cases/logic problems that cover basic economic/business principles (game theory, porter's five forces, etc) and just kind of pick your brain for ideas. There were also some behavioral questions/standard interview questions.

    The interview was in 2 stages. The first one was more of an analytical round which involved more of puzzles and case studies. THe second round then was a stress interview by a senior executive. It was a nice experience and other than bagging the job, I came out of the room with more confidence and as a stronger person.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Mu Sigma in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Aptitude test, Group discussion, video systhesis round and 2 interviews. video synthesis round had the candidates watch a video and then try to give a synopsis of the video in a few short sentences. Aptitude tests were not very difficult. Group discussions were judges exceptionally. The 2 interviews were pretty similar in terms of content. Sometimes really good candidates needed only one interview to get selected.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Mu Sigma in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    There were two phone interviews with a case interview in between. The case interview was like a take-home project which I had 24 hours to complete. The case interview was comprised of a few questions to be answered, and a video that I was to watch and then synthesize into three main points. After passing through to the official telephonic interview, HR provided me with three time slots throughout the next week to schedule the interview.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Mu Sigma.

    Interview Details

    Went to their info session where they gave us an overview of the company and answered our questions. There was a video synthesis test during the session where they showed us a 3-5 minute video and asked us to synthesize in bullet point what we got out from the video. At the end of the session there was a 20-question aptitude test on basic reasoning and calculations. They emailed me about the result 2-3 hours and told me that I was not selected for their interview on the next day.
