    HPCL interview for Officer Trainee-2009

    The written test was carried out on 24 May 2009 and result was declared on 26 June. the paper was very easy. I was called for interview on 22 july. There were 13 candidates in my batch which was scheduled at 9 am. The process began at sharp 9 am. After verification of documents and TA reimbursement interview started. I was interviewed last in that batch.
     
    My interview experience is given below:
    When I entered room they asked me to sit down and gave fw seconds to relax. there were five persons in the panel.
    Then they started with asking me to introduce myself. Then they asked me my strengths i told them that simplicity is my greatest strength. they asked me to explain this. I explained them to more than their satisfaction then, they asked me my weakness. I told them communication skill is my greatest weakness. But they doubted as i was speaking good english with them, then i told that though i can speak good english i have not yet attained fluency in it.
     
    Then they asked me whether i would like to work in group or individually. I told them i am ready to work in any environment but they wanted specific answer. So i told them that i would like to work in group because there are few chances of errors in group. Finally they asked me one question on my final year project which was based on microcontroller. They asked me how microcontroller in mobiles come to know that  a button has been pressed then i answered them a that through interrupt it come to know.
     
    They were very happy with my interview. The panel was very cordial and it was a friendly conversation than the interview. I was asked to wait for few minutes outside the room. I was 100% confident that i will clear interview. Then the HR came with the letter for medical test which was conducted next day i.e. on 23 July. But We were told that though we are medically tested this does not mean that we are finally selected. selection will be based on final merit list taking marks of written test and interview in account.
     
    Then i get very much upset as there was only one seat in E & TC in our category. lots of candidates from E & TC were called for interview.  After two months final merit list was declared and only those who were selected were told through e-mails. I could not make it into final list.
     
    Best of luck to other aspirants,
    Rohit
