Intern Interview

Intern

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

Interview Details – There were 2 rounds - A group discussion followed by an interview taken by a panel of 2 members (a marketing manager and a senior HR).

We were 6 of us during the group discussion. The topic given to us was "Is sports a viable career path in India?". The group discussion lasted for 15 minutes after which each of us had to summarise the discussion in under a minute each.

The questions asked during the interview were:

1. What is the difference in position between Pepsi and Coca-Cola?
2. Give us two of your favourite marketing campaigns. Why were they your favourite?
3. What are your mantras in life?
4. Rate yourself out of 10 (10 being the highest and 0 being the lowest) on your "Crisis Management" ability. Give us reasons for the same.
5. What is the most challenging thing you have ever done?

And finally they asked me if I had any questions for them or not. I asked them for details on the internship program (its structure and deliverables).

Interview Question – There were no such unexpected questions. They did however ask me about my family, which I found a little unusual but I understand now that it is a routine question.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Stipend offered was INR 85,000 per month.

Interviewed at RB

Interview Details – Listed position on university recruitment site for Skype interview. This was later postponed due to interviewers' busy schedules, but HR approached about 2 months later for setting up phone interview. First round interview with HR and second round interview with site manager. Both were conducted over the phone, and both focused almost entirely on culture fit rather than technical background.

Interview Question – Don't remember exact wording, but the prompt was to tell the interviewer about a time when I worked in a group setting where everyone was not in agreement, how this was finally resolved and what role I played in the ultimate resolution.   Answer Question

Innovation Associate Interview

Innovation Associate

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at RB.

Interview Details – RB works with various recruiters to fill the position. Initial contact is followed by several rounds of phone interviews such as HR, hiring managers...etc. Upon completion of phone interviews, an onsite meeting is scheduled for additional interviews. Phone interviews are difficult to impress the hiring manages due to the impersonal nature of this type of communication.
