Pre-Interview Preparations: There is a very common said ” first impression is the last impression ! ” and when you have to stand among the crowds, well dressing is a must !, especially when it is a huge opportunity to work with a Unicorn company that is all about designing and creative instincts. You should carry a well-organized portfolio of past works.
Tip: the cover page of the portfolio should be neat and catchy to the eye ) along with multiple copies of your Resume.
Your Folio should not be too detailed as the interviewer just goes through the pages very quickly, it should be limited to quality work with big and readable details of the maps, drawings with readable dimensions, and text sizes.
Stationary: being in an architectural, designer background one should always carry a Pen of different colors, a pencil, a scale, and an eraser along with a Notepad or dairy ( Tip to save: carry A4 sheets, a notepad will also work but A4 sheets look more professional )
Carry your ID cards ( any type of identity card such as Aadhaar, PAN, License, etc. ) as if you get selected they ask for it the very same day
You have to keep handy your other Documents such as 10th & 12th mark sheets, previous company’s salary slip and offer letter in any format digital or hard copy, as if you get selected the ask for it the very same day ( it just saves any delay because if you delay in submitting in a given number of days then someone else got shortlisted so better keep everything for any kind of interview )
Give a little Research about the company its origin and the basic work they do on their website.
Time is precious so don’t waste and be present on the allotted scheduled time after conforming from HR in any of your interviews and slay!
Interview: I went to the office at my scheduled time and handed over my resume to one of the HR who called me, she handed me over a very detailed form about my details ( that’s why told you to keep the pen, many other people were asking for a pen to fill the form making their time delayed to start the rounds)
I submitted that form then HR handed me over another set of papers which were of MCQ test. The whole experience comprises of 4 no. of Rounds :
MCQ Test (Time limit: 40 to 60 minutes for 200 questions ): The first round was divided into two series 1st has one set of MCQ papers containing 100 questions including the aptitude, logic & design output questions. Some of the questions were based on optical illusions about lines and geometry, some are like puzzles to find missing geometry or number. The basic motto for this short time limit and those puzzle/riddle-like questions were to see the focus of a person. Questions were tricky but not difficult, the level of the questions was the same as those we have given for NIFT or any other creativity-based competition. The sooner you complete your 1st test and submit they had you another set of 100 questions based on your architectural and interior knowledge about materials durability, the hierarchy of woods or laminates, etc. ( As the company sells modular so mostly questions about building materials and surfaces )
Some questions were based on plumbing and electrical too, which were basic that we had studied in our bachelor’s courses.
Tip: Divide the time to each question don’t prolong much on the 1st set as the 2nd set is a level up in difficulty, leave questions you don’t know, as it has minus markings, and focus on details in output questions.
I was the first in my room to submit my tests, the team of people evaluated them and by the time I have submitted my 2nd set, I have the desired numbers to get selected for the next round against 30 people in that shift, then I was told to wait for 15minutes then there was next round to face.
The Portfolio Round:
Tip: Interview try to see your confidence as this field is all about communication and practical knowledge so just answer what you know for sure else you can stay honest and ask them that you are unaware.
Maybe my answers or attitude were correct! , I have never asked my manager what in particular got me till the next round, I was told to wait for another 15 minutes then was called to their experience center full of clients and demonstrations.
Situation-based Reasoning Round:
Tip: Notice every detail while the interviewer is explaining the task as you will not have time to think of the points you have to be coming naturally, I know it is very fast and multi-tasking but take a deep breathe and speak anything and keep on speaking!
I tried my best to fit into both situations, it is all about your conceptual knowledge and presenting sense with a happy and confident face. Although that was not part of my job still they test our senses and communication, and the situation was handled through that. I was told to wait in a huge conference area where HR was about to interview me face to face.
HR Round :
I had a very tedious ( as I don’t know about the rounds and also not expecting to get in ) but the great experience of my interview it was all a sum up of serendipity and my practical knowledge of the field and keenness to always learn more got me into this, but most of all I was just being me not being anyone else for the sake of the job!
