Also, sectional cutoff as well as total cutoff needed to be cleared in order to pass the test. The results were announced on the same day, and the selected candidates were asked to attend the remaining process on the next day.

Technical Interview

The technical interview lasted for 20-30 minutes. At first, the interviewer told me to speak something about myself. Then the interviewer asked me which are my favourite core engineering subjects followed by a number of technical questions. Some of the questions which I was asked were:

• Question 1: How will you classify soil? (sieve analysis and IS soil particle size classification)

• Question 2: How to find the bearing & safe bearing capacity of a rectangular footing in sandy soil?

• Question 3: What is the difference between nominal and design mix?

• Question 4: What are the various tests on workability of concrete?

• Question 5: Draw the deflection diagram of a column (one end fixed, other end free). Also, how will you derive it?

• Question 8: As per IRC, what is the maximum superelevation that can be used for the design of highways?

Technical Interview was not an elimination round, which means that everyone was allowed to sit for the HR interview.

HR Interview

HR interview lasted for about 5-10 minutes. Basic questions like “What does your father do?”, “Tell me about your projects”, etc. was asked. The HR mainly questioned me from my resume. She was trying to know whether I will stick to the company for long or will quit early. At last, I was asked whether I am comfortable with any location of work. After 4-5 days, the selection list came, and I was selected.
