    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Descon Engineering in November 2014.

    Interview

    The positions were initially advertised in newspapers, and we had to apply online on the company website. The application was quite straight forward and barely took 5-10 min to complete.
    After some screening, based on GPA (my assumption), we were called for a test in Lahore. The test was a hybrid and contained both technical and non-technical questions. There were a total of 100 questions, and the time given was 90 minutes or 2 hours (I don't exactly remember). However, the time was adequate to complete the test. There were 20-25 technical questions relating to different courses studied in the degree. I remember Mechanics of machines/machine design related questions in particular. There were basic english, maths, and general knowledge questions such as the capital of this country, a question regarding cricket, world war etc.
    Those who cleared the test were called for interviews after about a month. People had different interviews with different departments who were interested. Some people had interview with 1, I was interviewed by two, and some people even by 3 departments. These interviews were independent of each other, and one had no effect on the other. One was a quite non-technical interview and I was mostly asked about things from my CV (extra-curriculars, internships etc), and had behavioral questions related to what do I want to do, to be career wise. Where do you see yourself in 5 years etc. My 2nd interview (with a different department) was a technical one. After the introduction, I was asked about my weaknesses, my final year project (a lot of questioning was done regarding this as they didn't seem satisfied with my explanation), some technical questions, and a few questions about my career interests including where do I see myself in 5 years. I was asked the difference between stress and strain (and asked to draw a stress-strain graph), difference between stress and pressure, how to determine passively if any industrial equipment was approaching failure (noise, vibrations, temperature etc). I was also asked about my internships. Both interviews were panel interviews with senior management of the respective departments.
    Those shortlisted after the interviews were called for group discussions after around a month. There was a group of 10 candidates. After our introductions, we were given a topic (relating a social issue). We were given 2 minutes to think about it, and then everyone was given 2 minutes to present his stance on the issue. After that we were given 20 minutes to discuss the issue, We weren't told to reach a conclusion, and they didn't ask for one. The judges asked us a few questions regarding group dynamics. After this, were were given a single page case study containing 4 questions at the end. The group was required to answer the questions in a 30 min presentation after around 50 min of preparation time. After the presentation, we were asked a few questions regarding the case study, and a few regarding group dynamics.
    I received an acceptance call in 3 weeks after the group discussions.

    Human Resources Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lahore (Pakistan)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Descon Engineering (Lahore (Pakistan)) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Interview was held for more than 3 months before I was offered a job, by then I had already accepted another offer. The process was slow and on inquiring there was no feedback.
    The interview process is completely scripted with the same general questions and a lot of focus of hypothetical situation.
    The good thing about the interview process was that the candidate was given ample time to express themselves properly. Friendly people who knew when to let the candidate breathe.
