Capgemini Paper interview experiances

Capgemini Paper - 24 April 2007
Hi friends!!!!
I'm Aniruddha Ghosh,a 3rd year engineering student of Bengal Institute of Technology,Kolkata. I'm here to share my xperience of the capussing procedure conducted by CAPGEMINI on 24th April,2007.

We had to face 4 rounds-
a) Aptitude Test
b) Group Discussion
c) Technical Interview
d) HR interview

There was 50 questions in the aptitude test,25 questions on quantitative & other 25 questions were logical analysis. There was no such questions either on verbal or technical ability. The questions were standard, not very easy, but not at all tough, a little bit time-taking.
Mainly the quanti questions were on basic--profit & loss, interest, fractions, speed...etc.The logical questions were on common sense, very ordinary logical questions followed by any book like R.S.Agarwal.
The time management is the main key to solve the paper as per my point of view.

Total 116 candidates appeared for aptitude test, only 45 cleared the aptitude test including me.

The next round was GD. It was a wonderful experience to all of us. We have given "Lage raho Munnabhai---what's the social impact of that well admired movie". It was a very good topic to discuss, nearly all of us contribute more or less as their level best. I initiated the GD,& my friends also spoke well.9 people out of 11,were selected from our group.

In total they selected 36 candidates for technical interview. The moderator of our group was very friendly & he gave us enough time to discuss. Before starting the GD he said that--"nothing to worrie about, it's just a formal discussion", which was a big relief to all of us.

In technical Interview they asked very basic questions from our semester subjects. Specially C, DS, DBMS, Networking, OS, OOP & Microprocessor. CS & IT people please make urself comfortable with your departmental subjects, if possible Please go through Microprocessor also. They ask from here also. As I'm a student of IT department, I'm giving u the brief of my interview, but I've heard from my friends of ECE department, they were asked from their departmental subjects also.

I was asked to tell the respected interviewer the names of my past 2 semester's subjects. He listened those carefully,& asked questions from those subjects, I've mentioned earlier. Some questions was like---basic features of OOP-discuss, normalization, OS handling, basic questions on OS, OSI layer-little discussion, link lists, sorting,& last but not the least I was asked to write the algo of Quicksort,& some other questions also their, that I can't remember now. But over all there was no such contradictory questions, they never counter with your answer.

There were only 18 candidates including me cleared the technical round.

After some time I was called for HR interview. It was nice to giving an interview in a friendly atmosphere they created. I was asked to tell about myself, the respected madam who was taking my interview asked me from the points I mentioned to tell about myself. She asked me ---"what do u mean by optimism?","how can you prove that you are optimistic?","what do u know about software industry?", strengths, weaknesses. Finally asked me to question her about my confusions if any.

I want to share something with you, it was the 6th interview, I was appeared for. Previously I've rejected 5 times, but still I didn't give up. I want to say you people must have confidence upon yourself, that's the thing with which you can win, never become hopeless.
I know what's the amount of pressure a candidate have on him, whenever he appears for an interview,& how was the feelings of being rejected one after another times.

So please try to be confident, always try to answer promptly, don't go for any false representation, as it reflects on your expression,& have faith on yourself---that's the key to crack.

Don't get me wrong, you may have feel that I'm giving too many advises that are useless, but I'm telling you, whatever I've said here, all are my own experiences. I personally believe that "failure is tha pillar of success",& YES, I'VE PROVED IT BY MYSELF, I'VE CRACKED CAPGEMINI,the renowned IT company in the industry.

The final result listed only 9 candidates who are finally selected,& I feel very proud to be 1 of those 9.
Nothing to say more, BEST OF LUCK--to all of u. & VERY SORRY, if I made someone feel "boring", "time waste", "useless speech"....etc
If possible please forgive me. I'll be obliged enough if my experience would help someone to get a job.

for GD they had asked to select ur own topic and give 5 min for that show ur participation there also that will help u to fatch some more marks

plz don’t select any easy topic like “dowry system”, “dress codes in collg” etc.

because this gonna select only 1or 2 candidate from ur group so try to take some good topic so that max can get cleared the GD

Mine topic was: “should sex education b given from primary level or not”

For interview they will just look for ur confidents.

Questioned asked were simple

Like : introduce yourself dat it is not given in ur resume,

Which all campus did u seated for etc…

These were very easy

I couldn’t seated for CTS bcoz of my present backlogs

In tcs : out in tech interview

Accenture: again couldn’t seated

I was frustrated

But finally I got a chance to seat in capgemini and luckily I was one of the 13 selected candidate.

All the best meet u in capgemini


Hie Friends,this is Samrat here..I am sharing my experiences abt the CAPGEMINI recruitment held at KIIT,Bhubaneswar on 4th......

As u guys would b knowing this is year the test pattern of CAPGEMINI is Aptitude(25) and Reasoning(25)..Then followed by GD, Technical (mainly HR based and puzzles) and HR..

The apti part was very easy. actually questions are being repeated. The same question that came in BIT ,Kolkata came here ..So I would suggest all the aspirants to solve the papers given in freshersworld properly....In our college 300 students sat for the paper.Out of it 120 cleared written. Then came the GD part..

Topics like -East or West which is the land of opportunities and Gandhigiri or Dadagiri were given.In our college we had 50 B.Tech and 70 MCA ,s qulaified for written...There were 5 B.Tech GD group and 7 MCA groups each consisting of 10 .So out of it 51 cleared GD..My topic was Lagey Raho Munnabhai and its impact in modern days..I cleared GD..

Then came the Technical or Management round..In this round either you would be asked some HR queestions like Tell Me about Yourself or some cases would be given to you and you have to get the best possible answers..They gave me a puzzle from Shakuntala Devi and told me to complete it in 30 secs.I confidently did it in 20 secs.And they would also be askin you abt ur Hobbies and details on them..Then I was told to wait outside for HR round..

Friends remember in Capgemini every person has to undergo thru TECH and HR..They evaluate you on your total performance starting from written marks,GD,Tech qualities and HR... Then in my HR round i had to face the HR Head of Kolkata--VANDANA mam.She asked me on why I joioned Capgemini inspite of there being so many big companies like TCS,CTS,etc.
Then asked abt my projects in details..Then asked me on my hobbies,Extracurricular activities..A situation was given to me how I should overcome it with the best possible outcomes. like that..and then asked questions like Why i joined KIIT,Bbsr apart from having joined in an Engineering college in Kolkata(I am from KOL so shes asked this)..Like this..i was so confident withe the answers that my HR was pleased..It was a 20 mins Interview..Then she finally asked me if I have any questions for her.I asked her soe like what a company expects from the freshers and wat subject a fresher should be acquainted with properly b4 joining a company and like dat..Then she told me it was over and I had to wait outside for results. Finally when results came out at 12 am ..i was lucky to find my name in the 5th call...What they said was they marked a person totally starting from Written GD,Tech ,HR..mine was the 5th rank out of the 300 ..Hey guys I was so lucky..After having failed to even clear the written in WIPRO,MINDTREE,L&T INFOTECH I was really very depressed and now i ve cleared CAPGEMINI --a MNC wow!!

Guys i really bleive to get recruited u really need 70 percent luck....Anyways I hope my suggestion would help all the aspirants....They offered package of 2.75 but it woudl be revised to 3.3 lacs/annum...
