It is a case based GD, where they will give you one situation, you have to study it for few minutes then draw your views on that and then you have to discuss it with others to convince your opinion about the topic.
For example, the topic given to us was “you are a captain of a ship which is carrying 2000 passengers, the ship is about to sink and you are in the middle of the ocean. You have to save all those passengers. You are provided with few accessories such as shark repellent, sun cream, glasses, flashlight etc. you have to prepare a list of all those articles according to your priority and discuss with your group to come to a common conclusion. The GD lasts for about 40 to 50 minutes.
Again interview of K-Group consists of two parts :
- Technical interview
- HR interview
In a technical interview, you will be asked very simple questions such as:
- What is the pump, turbine, etc?
- How centrifugal pump is different from the rotary pump?
- Basic pump fundamentals such as NPSHr, NPSHa, types of pumps
- Applications of pump
Be specific in your answers.
If you do not know any answer simply say ‘I don’t know sir’, don’t bluff.
In HR interview you will be asked about yourself, your family background, academics, hobbies, etc.
Friends, HR interview is a cake walk for you. If you are able to impress HR in this session then you are definitely get hired. So thoroughly prepare for it.
