Graduate Engineer Trainee Interview

Anonymous Employee in Mangalore (India)
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at IDEA Cellular (Mangalore (India)) in January 2013.

Interview

Hiring process was cool ! ...I got an offer though campus placement. It was a 3 round selection procedure. There was a 1 hour online test involving aptitude questions and technical questions ( tech: all areas related to communication engg were covered). Later there was a group discussion and then the last round was personal interview. In the interview round, questions were all based on modulation techniques, which is better ? QPSK or BPSK -and why ? what is Sampling theorem , what is quantization , what is coherent and non-coherent FSK? Circuit diagram on OPAMP based integrator etc.. Also they asked about major project. I was confident while answering the questions. I hope this thread helps some one looking for jobs related to mobile communications.

Interview Questions

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at IDEA Cellular (Rae Bareli (India)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Overall Four Rounds

    First Round- Online Assessment (Technical + Aptitude Questions)
    Second Round- Group Discussion
    Third Round- Technical Interview
    Final Round- Interview with Network and HR Head (Circle)

    The online assessment was tricky and tough. Group Discussion was moderate. All they were looking was how much your contributed in the discussion and if you displayed team spirit.

    The Technical Interview was not at all standard and relevant to the position. Expect some weird questions.
