    Executive Trainee Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Power Grid Corporation of India (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    GATE2015->cutoff=rank 170(approx)->GD(1 supervisor)+Interview(5 in panel)-> Medical test
    GD topics totally random. General issues. They tell you to write summary after GD in 3 mins time, which can be tricky. They give a call after about a month after declaration of GATE result and ask you to appear for GD and interview at their corporate office in gurgaon. The whole interview +GD process takes about 4-5 hrs. Youll be free by lunchtime mostly, not as lengthy as some of the other PSUs. Interview duration is also lesser, about 20-25 mins max compared to 45mins for other PSUs. Probably the most organised recruitment process of all PSUs. They strictly follow procedure with no hassles or ambiguity before or after interview .

    Interview Questions

    • First they ask you background+HR stuff. Then favourite topic/topic you most recently studied.
      Questions:
      1.Construction of tower? Whether made of conductor or insulator and why?
      2.Suspension and tension towers.
      3.Installed capacity and average load in india.
      4.Postive,negative and zero sequence impedance of a line
      5.Smart grid.
      6.Line traps
      7.structure of substations.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Power Grid Corporation of India (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Process started with document verification. Then first nine people were called for GD. HR will explain the process very clearly, we have an option to speak in Hindi/English/both. One in the group should select a chit from ten, which consists of the topics for discussion. After the discussion, every individual will be given some time to write the summary on a paper. After completion of GD, they called for Interview. Interviewers will have the resume filled by the candidates which is submitted during document verification. For me, interview is mostly HR. They ask you a favorite subject, no matter what you say they ask question on power systems.

    Interview Questions

    • First they asked questions based on my resume
      1. Various kinds of FACTS devices (based on my fav sub)
      2. What are the various things you observe when you walk under a transmission line
