Best Interview in India-Infosys

 

Interviewer: Tell me about yourself. 

Candidate: I am Rameshwar Kulkarni. I did my Tele Communication 

engineering from BabanRao Dhole-Patil Institute of Technology.

 

Interviewer: BabanRao Dhole-Patil Institute of Technology? I had 

never heard of this college before! 

Candidate: Great! Even I had not heard of it before getting an 

admission into it .. 

What happened is – due to cricket world cup I scored badly! in 

12th.I was getting a paid seat in a good college. 

But my father said (I prefer to call him ‘baap’) – “I can not 

invest so much of money”.(The baap actually said – “I 

will never waste so much of money on you”). So I had to join this 

college. Frankly speaking this name – BabanRao Dhole-Patil, can at the most be 

related to a Shetakari Mahavidyalaya.

 

Interviewer: ok, ok. It seems you have taken 6 years to complete 

your engineering. 

Candidate: Actually I tried my best to finish it in 4 years. But 

you know, these cricket matches and football 

world cup, and tennis tournaments. It is difficult to concentrate. 

So I flunked in 2nd and 3rd year. So in all I took 

4 + 2 = 7 years.

 

Interviewer: But 4+2 is 6. 

Candidate: Oh, is it? You know I always had KT in maths. But I 

will try to keep this in mind. 4+2 is 6, good, 

thanks. These cricket matches really affect exams a lot. I think 

they should ban it.

 

Interviewer: Good to know that you want cricket matches to be 

banned. 

Candidate: No, no… I am talking about Exams!!

 

Interviewer: Ok, What is your biggest achievement in life? 

Candidate: Obviously, completing my Engineering. My mom never 

thought I would complete it. In fact, when i 

flunked in 3rd year, she was looking for a job for me in BEST (Bus 

corporation in Maharashtra) through some relative.

 

Interviewer: Do you have any plans of higher study? 

Candidate: he he he.. Are you kidding? Completing ‘lower’ 

education itself was so much of pain!!

 

Interviewer: Let’s talk about technical stuff. On which platforms 

have you worked? 

Candidate: Well, I work at SEEPZ, so you can say Andheri is my 

current platform. Earlier I was at Vashi center. So Vashi was my platform then. As you can see I have 

experience of different platforms! (Vashi and Andheri are the places in Mumbai)

 

Interviewer: And which languages have you used? 

Candidate: Marathi, Hindi, English. By the way, I can keep quiet 

in German, French, Russian and many other languages.

 

Interviewer: Why VC is better than VB? 

Candidate: It is a common sense – C comes after B. So VC is a 

higher version than VB. I heard very soon they 

are coming up with a new language VD!

 

Interviewer: Do you know anything about Assembly Language? 

Candidate: Well, I have not heard of it. But I guess, this is the 

language our ministers and MPs use in assembly.

 

Interviewer: What is your general project experience? 

Candidate: My general experience about projects is – most of th! e 

times they are in pipeline!

 

Interviewer: Can you tell me about your current job? 

Candidate: Sure, Currently I am working for Bata InfoTech ltd. 

Since joining BIL, I am on Bench. Before joining 

BIL, I used to think that Bench was another software like Windows.

 

Interviewer: Do you have any project management experience? 

Candidate: No, but I guess it shouldn’t be difficult. I know 

Word and Excel. I can talk a lot. I know how to 

dial for International phone call and use speaker facility. And 

very important – I know few words like – 

‘Showstoppers ‘ , ‘hotfixes’, 

‘SEI-CMM’,’quality’ ,’versioncontrol ‘,’deadlines’ , ‘Customer 

Satisfaction’ etc. Also I can blame others for my mistakes!

 

Interviewer: What are your expectations from our company? 

Candidate: Not much. 

1. I should at least get 40,000 in hand. 

2. I would like to work on a live EJB project. But it should not 

        have deadlines. I personally feel that pressure affects natural talent. 

3. I believe in flexi-timings. 

4. Dress code is against basic freedom, so I would like to wear 

        t-shirt and jeans. 

5. We must have sat-sun off. I will suggest Wednesday off also, so 

        as to avoid breakdown due to overwork. 

6. I would like to go abroad 3 times a year on short term 

        preferably 1-2 months) assignments. Personally I prefer 

US, Australia and Europe. But considering the fact that there is Olympics coming up in 

China in the current year, I don’t mind 

going there in that period. As you can see I am modest and don’t 

have many expectations. So can I assume my selection?

 

Interviewer: he he he ha ha ha. Thanks for your interest in our 

organization. In fact I was never entertained so much before. Welcome to INFOSYS.

The fellow was appointed in a newly created section ‘Stress Management’ in the HRD of Infosys.
