Caritor Placement Paper General - Interview -1 Jan 1900
Caritor Pattern, GD and Interview Experience
I attended the off-campus of Caritor, held at NIE,Mysore in the last week of august. Test was open forall students of CS, EC, Mech, EE, IS andInstrumentation. Cut-off was 65% in all semester, allsubjects must've been cleared in first attempt.
Question paper pattern:
Total time was 60min. Two different question paperswill be given and one white paper to work out theanswers.The answering sheet is of multiple choice type wherewe've to put a "X" mark on correct choice.College IDwasa must and those who forgot bring theirs weremercilessly sent out, inspite of having other prooflike marks cardalong with drivers license etc.,
NO -ve marks. Paper-2 was given about 15 min. after westarted answering paper-1. We can switch betweenpapers.
Paper-1:Quantitative aptitude: 30 questions.All simple stuffdirect from R. S. AggarwalQuestions were on ratio and proportions, familyrelationship, bankers discount, areas andvolumes,pipes and cisterns, complete the numberseries.
Paper-2:Logical reasoning: 15 questions. Few questions on datasufficiency, ref. the verbal and non-verbal reasoningbyR. S. Aggarwal. and remaining on assertion andreasoning type.
I got some 20 correct in paper-1 and some 5-7 correctin paper-2. I was called for the GD that afternoonitself.Some 30 odd were shortlisted for GD. The topic of GDwas hardwork and sincerity.A group was 8-9 people wasmadeand were allowed to talk while others had to wait inother room.I said hardwork and sincerity gohand-in-hand and both are important, while someargued that hardwork alone or sincerity alone issufficient. In GD the mostsilent people were selected!!!!!!!!. I was thenshortlisted for interview the next day in Bangalore inCaritor office.
the panel had the HR lady and a techie guy.The guy asked me why I wanted to shift to IT while Iam a Mech., grad.>> I said growth potential, money, air-conditionedoffice........
The guy then asked questions regarding microprocessorand other electronics stuff.>> I said I am a mech., guy I don't know Microproc.You can ask C prog., or any question based on mech.
The guy kept on asking stuff from electronics andother hardcore comp sc. stuff.>> I gave up. I answered all questions with a big "IDON'T KNOW". Walked out.
By looking at their faces and their attitude I couldmake out that they didn't want to hire guys fromnon-IT branch. The interview and all was just aneye-wash.So, non-IT guys consider this seriouslybefore attending Caritor test.Finally about 10 peoplefrom EE and CS branch were selected.
