Group discussion as you know, you have to speak out of the crowd. Generally, they will divide the candidates into groups of 9 or 10 members and give the topic. In my case, We have given a sheet with a “Sweet Problem”. It is a problem rather than a topic. Below example will help you.

On Sunday early morning Ramakrishna goes to a sweet shop and asks the shopkeeper the cost of 1 kg of sweet. The sweet shopkeeper replies ” 1 kg costs Rs. 24. Ramakrishna purchases half a kg. of sweet and gives the sweet shopkeeper Rs. 20.

The shopkeeper does not have change as it was early in the morning and he moves to a tea stall owner to get change. He gets change for Rs. 20 and gives Rs. 8 back to Ramakrishna. During day time, the tea stall owner rushes to the sweet shopkeeper and tells him that the money he has given is counterfeit and asks him to give Rs. 20 back. The shopkeeper now gives him his Rs. 20.

Find out the total loss incurred to the Sweet shopkeeper without including the cost of sweet.

There won’t a right or wrong answer. You have to just stick to a particular answer. Never deviate from your answer as the interviewer may note your decision. This is a decision-making question and you have to stick to your answer. Maintain good voice and eye contact.

You receive a call from your mother that you must take her to the hospital at 2:00 pm and thereby get permission from your higher officials. At 9:00 am you have to attend a meeting with your senior officers regarding the statistics of Sales.

It is also found at 10.15 am that the amount of raw materials is being out of stock and as to be reported for further operations of production. The stock has to reach the industry by 11:00 am.
A person at the shop floor gets permission for half a day, he has to be replaced with another person for continuity of operation.

Make a proper time format of these operations. Assume that the time now is 9:00 am.

After completing the phase, you will be completing the first phase of the interview. MRF will inform the shortlisted candidates and they will be called for further personal interviews. The first round is basically a filtering process and each interview process starts from the second round of the interview.

After shortlisting the candidates, they are asked to come to a personal interview where you will be interviewed by two to three interviewers. They will basically ask you from anything from your course of study. My suggestion is to cover all the basic question as well as practical questions. Some of the questions asked to me are below:

1) Why bicylce moves forward only while using paddle? – Because of freewheel mechanism
2) Explain Carnot cycle?
3) Questions related to gear ratio

Go through the basic fundamentals of your syllabus before appearing for the interview. The interview will be handled by industrial experience personals and you can expect more practical application-based questions.

The round may be more of an HR interview as they may ask for personal questions. For some candidates, they may ask for technical questions along with HR interview questions.

1) Are you willing to work in night shift?
2) Are you ok with working in production?

These are the steps in the whole MRF Interview process. Based on the candidates, there may be more personal interviews. After successful completion of the interview, you will be notified on mail and will share the joining process.
