|Hi friends posting my GD/PI experience:|
Btech : 78.8
Work profile : Infosys 14 months and Career launcher 4 months
I had it on 8th march 1:30 slot
We were taken into an auditorium where we were first sent for registration..dont rush for registration ..your slots are already fixed.
after that there was a presentation on som followed by a video (Slumdog effect had MIA paper planes as background score, i think b-schools are smitten with SM as iun delhi interview it had dreams on fire as background score) , overall was nice ..then was followed by a presentation by a SBI folk about the loan scheme that you will get, was of great help and most of the claps went for that pres..
Also at the reg desk we were given a form in which we have to fill our semester wise marks and extra currics along with work experience
As i was filling the form we were called for the Case study
Case was about a supervisor suresh kumar for a distribution firm had appointed a new young technical grad sameer into managing the workers in the offload process and he was facing problems as workers were not much motivated and were not doing their work properly by taking frequent breaks and all....sameer tried motivated them but they didnt listened and end result was he was boycotted from their social activites....there was a senior worker named shankar dada who talked with sameer and sameer said thank god i am leaving you people soon enough as i dont want to be like you..to which shankar retaliated that if you would have been long here you would have become one of us.
it was followed by two questions:
1) was the role of supervisor encouraging or discouraging the workers to their job
2) was shankar dada's statement right or wrong
we were 11 people(1 was absent) and were given 5 min tyo think and 15 min to discuss
Case study went fine...in the end we were left short of time for discussing the second question so panel stopped us and asked 4 of us who hadn;t spoken much to give their views.
Ok done then we were lead back to the auditorium (to ADCOM the delta alpha method and all that co-ordination with walkies was superb)
their the form was verified and make sure that whatever you are mentioning in the form you have proof for that without proof they wont consider anything.
