    Interview Details

    There were 2 rounds. 1st round was a telephonic interview by hiring manager and 2nd round was at their office in Pune. 2nd round was for a full day- with 4 interviews including 1 case study presentation.

    1st round was primarily knowing you and understand what kind of projects one has worked upon. Involves explaining 2 projects in detail.

    2nd round at pune office had 4 interviews: past projects+stats, personal/behavioral, cultural fit, case study presentation. I think the first interview was important here and next intervieers form their judgement base on this/ and verify that.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at ZS Associates.

    Interview Details

    There would be a written test with questions testing quantitative skills of the candidate after which 3 rounds of interviews would be conducted. The first round would be a case study round where a lot of data is given in the form of tables (printed on paper). The candidate would be asked to draw out meaningful conclusions from the data and point out possible data errors. There would be one more round to test the attitude of the candidate (behavioral round). The final interview would be the principal interview (taken by one of the principals of the firm). This may vary from candidate to candidate. Mostly a mixture of behavioral questions + some questions testing analytical skills (noted in the next section)

    Interview Questions
    • A bell curve was draw on paper (the lower most part of the bell was above 0 (the curve has a y-intercept >0). The y-axis showed sales of a drug whereas x-axis showed number of sales people. I was asked to explain the curve's shape and the logical reason behind it.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at ZS Associates in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    It started with an initial Aptitude test and i got a mail from the HR that i was selected for further rounds. I was called to Pune where i had three rounds in total.
    1st round is a case study round, in which we were given nearly 10 pages of data of a client and 4 questions are to be answered using that data. It was nearly for 45 min followed by a discussion spanning 30 min on how i reached those answers. It is an elimination round and i was able to pass through that. Next was an interview with one of the manager in the track. Mostly puzzles, brain teasers and some questions on my resume and projects i did. The 3rd round is a Principal interview where in a Principal(nearly the top position in ZS) interviewed my culture fit. It was mostly HR kind. the case study round is the deciding factor i feel.
