I am giving my experience throughout the day of campus recruitment by Infosys on 27th March, 2008 at our college (ITER, BBSR).
Package is 3.25 per annum B.tech/BE/MCA.
They gave a form where you need to enter your necessary details. You need one passport size color photograph and your percentage has to be calculated from total marks including an additional or optional subject that means all the subjects you have appeared.
There were two written tests one is Reasoning ability test (RAT) and the other one is Verbal ability test (VAT). RAT was of 40 minutes for 30 questions and VAT was of 35 minutes for 40 questions.
It consist a north-south-east-west distance problem. 5 questions were asked based on this problem (very easy).5 Nonverbal reasoning questions i.e. finding out odd one out from 5 simple figures.
A simple puzzle:
One thief thefts a keyboard, a monitor and a printer from three separate stores on 3 different months January, February and march to make his own computer. He uses 3 different devices each once at a time. The devices were screwdriver, wire cutter and appliers. Wire cutter was sensitive to monitor. And some simple hints were given and you can find it out easily using a table.
5 questions were asked based on this puzzle.
Other questions were from time and distance, probability, ratio and proportion, 3 to 4 other questions I’ve not there and I simply bluffed as there were no negative markings.
Two simple paragraphs were there. You need not have to read the paragraph thoroughly because you can get the answer of the question directly. Each paragraph had five questions each.
Other questions are:
He: tell me your weakness and some failures in life.
He: how you are going to overcome these.
Me: (These sorts of questions I had already prepared; so done)
He: ok (he laughed) and wished me all the best. And asked me to leave the place.
Me: thank you sir. (And left).
I was a bit nervous during the interview and my lips were getting dried as I was interviewed in the same way by WIPRO but God knows why I was not selected.
Always try to say the truth the INFY people bring H.R professional from the meta-i group. They all are above age 40. They are quite experienced professionals. so don’t bluff; some of my friends have been caught bluffing .
Fresher world. Com is really helpful for me as it gives most recent campus experiences..
INFOSYS PAPER ON 25th MARCH AT LUCKNOW
Hey Guys...Preparing for InfoSys ? The dream company ! Just felt like sharing my experience that could help you out !! Infosys visited Ramswaroop on 25th and around 1200 students from 6 colleges appeared out of which around 150 students were selected and obviously,i too made the mark !!
The Procedure was divided into two parts:
1. Written Exam
2. HR Interview
1. Written Exam
a. Reasoning Ability - before the question paper ,we were given application forms...fill them very carefully...you'll later find them in the hands of your interviewer !!
so be very careful !!
next we got the paper first paper we got reasoning...40 minutes,30 questions... questions similar to the ones in R.S. Agarwal Verbal-non-Verbal book...so just prepare from it !!
Puzzle (attempt in the end)
Odd one out Figures
(Tough Calculation...do at the end)
Puzzle again !!
b. Verbal Ability
40 question,35 minutes...a lil tough due to time problem !! you need good concentration to work continuously for 35 minutes... personal advice... if you want to make a cut above the rest in infosys paper,this section is where you should perform !! as in reasoning part,almost all score around 20 correct answers, but english is what makes the difference !! if you can score here...you got it !! (You Wont believe it...i almost gotall of them right...saw later during interview!!) so go for it...
