    Graduate Engineer Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bhubaneswar (India)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Shapoorji Pallonji & Co (Bhubaneswar (India)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Like most basic interviews, it comprised both Technical and HR. They had previously assessed our communication skills by means of a non-elimination-GD-round. So there were marks allotted for that.

    The technical round include questions from very basic subjects like Construction Materials, Transportation Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Surveying, RCC, Steel etc. The interviewer could ask you to pick a favorite topic, and he/she would question you on the same. Make sure you have your basics very clear, if you're naming one such subject.

    They are also eager to know about your summer training, so make sure you have brushed up on everything written in your internship diary. Outdoor/construction site training which had more practical exposure, tend to come off as a bit of a positive. Since, you're applying for a position at a renowned construction firm, they'd definitely like it if you can understand and have experienced that type of work.

    The HR asks general questions about your family background, hobbies etc. Again, make sure you know A-Z of what is written down in your CV.

    All in all, I'd say, being confident and your natural self, works wonders. Do not get all worked up. If they think you are a well rounded individual who has his/her core knowledge clear, they will hire you!

    Interview Questions

    • This was an HR Question. Maybe came along because I was a female candidate. They had asked me, "Are you homesick? So if we send you off to a remote village in Chennai, will you go? Your parents will allow?":.   1 Answer
