Examrace Placement Series prepares you for the toughest placement exams to top companies.

Hi Capgemini Aspirants.

I am a MCA student at GH Raisoni Institute of Information Technology, Nagpur. First of all, let me tell you, I never knew anything about Capgemini before I started preparing for it. If you are appearing for Capgemini campus, then I would suggest you to prepare really well, because getting into this company will be a booster for your career.

I think you should know the following about Capgemini:

  1. Capgemini is a Europe multinational (unlike indian borne MNCs like Infosys, Wipro and all), spread in 38 countries around the globe.

  2. Its a 13.8 billion $company. Companies like infosys, satyam, wipro are not even half of Capgemini (TCS being 7.4 bn$).

  3. Its called the gurus of consulting.

  4. It stands 5th the Indian IT company rankings 2008.

  5. It stands 4th in the best IT consulting services company in the recent world rankings by Forbes.

  6. Capgemini is a very good company for the freshers, unlike other IT firms, Capgemini stands the last when it comes to irregular firings. Capgemini came for a Campus recruitment drive on Jul 29th, 2008. It was a closed campus, comprising of two colleges (G. H. Raisoni and PCEA). Around 500 (BE + MCA) students appeared for the campus.

Trecruitment Criteria

The criteria was:

  1. For BE: 60% in BE till date & no active backlogs.

  2. For MCA: 60% in MCA till date & no active backlogs. We were asked to report at 8: 30am and to our surprise, the recruiters appeared sharp at 8: 30 am (unlike other company people who are generally 3 or more hrs late). Then started the selection procedure.

Selction Procedure

  1. Presentation: All the appearing students were called in a hall to see a power point presentation about the company. It was really interesting. We were formally introduced to the HR and her team. Its always better to note important points form the presentation since it may be asked in the interview. We were told about the package that we were going to get. It was 3 lakh CTC per annum. After the presentation, we were asked to move in rooms for aptitude test.

  2. Aptitude Test: Aptitude test was on paper and an objective type. The paper was divided into two sections: Quantitative 25 questions. Analytical 25 questions. We were given 1hr to solve the paper. There was a sectional cut-off of 10 marks (it was told in advance) and there was a provision of negative marking (0.25 marks deducted for every incorrect answer). I went for around 15 questions from both the sections and managed to clear the aptitude test. Please note that there were 3 sets of question papers and they contained very few common questions. But a lot of questions (around 8 − 10) in each set were repeated questions (questions that had been asked in earlier campus interviews by Capgemini). I think this helps a lot. So, I will suggest you to mug up all the questions by heart that I am giving with their answers.

Group Discussion

All the selected candidates were divided into 13 groups of 10 students each.

The GD was being conducted simultaneously in 3 rooms. Our group got the topic “Should GDs be included in selection procedures?” Clearing the GD round is easy. The coordinators were really very friendly and made all the candidates relaxed. In GD, you will have to show your participation. Do open up your mouth, but at the same time, see to it that you are not disrupting others. Dont loose confidence even if you are not a very good speaker. Just give strong points, thisz what matters the most. After about 1hr the list of candidates who had cleared the GD was displayed and they were asked to report in a room for further proceedings. 60 candidates cleared the GD round.

Personal Interview

There were 3 interview panels consisting of 2 members each. The interviews were going on simultaneously. I was the third one to be called.

Me: Good evening Sir, MA'am.

Interviewers: GE, please sit. How was ur day?

Me: Great. We had pretty good time, selection procedure was punctal.

Int: But the guy before you was saying that he is too much tired and having head ache.

Me: It was a good day for me Sir, I am used to such schedule (Actually they were testing if the candidate can spend long working hrs or not. Please be very positive in your answers.).

Int: How was the aptitude test.

Me: It was good. Not very tough.

Iv: Is it so because you guys got a lot of chance to cheat and ask answers from your friends?

Me: No Sir, I didnt seek anybody else's help and did all my paper of my own. If you wish, I am ready to solve it all again in front of you.

Int: (very happy) Very Good. I like your confidence (It was a direct fire. Keep cool under such conditions and try to give good and positive answers that show your confidence against such questions.). Then I was asked technical questions: Whats printf, scanf in C? Was asked to write a program that sorts both a character array as well as an integer array (I wrote the logic). What is type casting? Memory taken by diff data-types etc. Being a MCA candidate, although I was well prepered for DBMS, Operating System, Data Structures questions, I was seldomly asked about them. Then the lady asked me a question from the aptitude paper and asked me to solve it (she didnt give me the full data).

I told her I need more data to solve it. She insisted that it can be solved with that much data only but I knew it wasnt so, so I kept sticking to my point. Then she asked me a couple of puzzles. I dont know how I performed, but I think they see your approach to solving the problem. Further, the gentleman asked me about my hobbies, my family etc.

We discussed arout 2 − 3 minutes about my father's work (an armyman). Finally, they asked me for my CV, a photograph, photo-copies of all my marksheets from Std 10th till MCA. Me: It was a very great time with you Sir. Iv: Same here Amit. Good Luck. My interview ran for about 30 minutes. Be cool and confident during the interview. If you are confident and have good communication skills, there are strong chances that you may be selected.

All the interviews were over by 10: 15pm and we waited very eagerly for the results. We were asked to assemble in a room where the HR, Preety MA'am came on the stage to announce the name of the selected candidates. There was a huge round of aplause for ever name being announced. To my good luck, I was also one of the selected guys. A total of 41 candidates were selected. We were then asked to maintain our aggregate (in BE or MCA) to a 60% at the time of joining failing which, we wont be accepted.
