    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Caterpillar (Chennai (India)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    3 rounds
    1. Written(Technical,Quants,Verbal)
    2. GD
    3. Tech cum HR

    Poor interview, They didn't know any Technical questions at all, They stuttered when i asked to explain more about the question.

    They don't have any idea about hiring itself i think.

    Finally they selected 2 Candidates, Purely based on CGPA, Ans not just any thing.
