Please tell us about your Interview procedure at Axtria (Short listing procedure, GDs, Interviews).
Axtria visited the campus on 5th Aug. It conducted an online test (CoCubes). It had 3 sections- Aptitude (60 questions-Quant, verbal and logical reasoning), Computer Fundamentals (20 questions-C++ and SQL) and Questionnaire (Subjective questions like why Axtria, mention any work experience in data analysis, explain your role while working in a team etc).
Each section had a sectional time limit. Based on this round around 40 students were shortlisted. This was followed by two rounds of interview. Both rounds were eliminative. In each interview they asked questions based on resume, statistics, puzzles, guesstimates, case studies and some HR questions. Each interview lasts for 30-40 minutes.
What and how many internships and projects you did at college? How did you get them?
I did two internships. My first internship was at Rail Neer Plant. Over there I studied water purification process and various types of flow instruments involved at each stage. My second internship was at NHAI where I worked as a network intern. I got both the internships off campus.
I did two projects based on embedded systems and working on 3rd one based on image processing.
What makes this company different from other firms?
Axtria is a fast growing company with a long tradition in analytics. Its transparent, opportunity-filled and flexible work culture makes it a great place for a freshly hired analyst to learn, explore and grow.
How did you prepare for the placement season? What advice would you give to your juniors regarding the placement season?
Joining MBA coaching helped in cracking quant, LR and VA questions. It is good to practice some puzzles from Shakuntala Devi and George Summers’ books. Reading some guess estimates from Case in Point can help to get the basic idea of approach. Apart from all this, have confidence in your abilities and you will surely make through.
What’s the role of academics in getting a good placement at NSIT?
For non-tech jobs, above 65 is good enough for getting shortlisted but a better percentage will always give you an edge.
Would you like to give any general advice to your juniors?
Enjoy your 4 years and explore as much as possible. Identify your interest areas and sit accordingly for the companies. Interact with your seniors as they are experienced and can provide the proper guidance. Don’t let a few rejections discourage you. Try to learn from every rejection.
