What is campus interview process for HPCL like? What is general expectation i.e. what subjects should be studied thoroughly?
HPCL came for campus recruitment process at NIT Surat on 21–22–23 March,2018 for 4 branch - ME,EE,CE,CS.There were 7 steps involved in the process.Google Consent form & ShortlistHPCL Application FormPre- Placement talkDocuments VerificationGroup TaskInterviewMedical Check-upAfter filling up a Google consent, they shortlisted the candidates based on their CGPAHere,nothing can be predicted.Apparently they don't follow any rules,it is completely based on their mind set for Campus they are visiting and critical vacancies for particular branch & for particular Category.nothing is fixed here,you just need to crossed your fingers.like in our campus,they have shortlisted 48 students-24 from computer(yeah 24,you read it correct) and 24 from ME,EE,CE combined.But I heard from my friend that at COEP Pune they shortlisted only 16 students( 4 from each branch and 4 branch were allowed), I may be wrong here,don't know exactly, it's data given by friend. So, like I said nothing can be predicted.Now,students who have shortlisted for further process had to fill HPCL Application Form.It was divided into 2 step. In first step,you need to fill your personal details(Name,Address,DOB,Signature,Photograph,Resume etc). In second step,you need to fill your Acedamics details(10th,12th, semester SGPA,internship experience etc). Now,most importantly, in second step,you also need to fill some HR Questions. based on which you will be judged in the interview,they will crossed check those answers during interview,so fill it very carefully.HR Questions :On 21 March,2018 there was a Pre-Placement Talk, HR member discussed about HPCL. It's SBU,CTC structure, Selection process, what Responsibility and Role will be given to candidates once they get selected,Job location etc..there was Q & A round also where one can ask doubts.( In short, you should do your homework because “ first impression stays last”) she asked us so many questions regarding Company to make it more interesting.Here,I suggest if you have any doubts or you want to know some insight about Company then ask them directly without any second thought, I bet you nobody can give you better answers than HR,you will not find that answer on Quora or Google on any other platform.Immediately after Pre placement talk, they called for Documents Verification one by one.Required documents( original + one set of photocopy) :10th Marksheet/ DOB CertificateSemester MarksheetCaste certificate ( SC/ ST/OBC)HPCL Application FormNext day in Group Task they divided 24 students into 3 group( 8 in each). It is mainly elimination round than selection round, I can say. 2 Students from first group, 2 from second group and 4 from third group was shortlisted for interview. You can speak in any language here,you can mix two language also,no issue. Analytical thinking and framing your thoughts in a logical manner is must to clear the GD. Least I can say, it’s 50% luck, you never know what they are looking for in candidates. Some performed very well still couldn't clear it.We were given 10 min to read case study and then after 20 min to discuss. Topic was same for first 2 group.Topic of our group( in short) :“ You all are a member of one committee which is made for solving the problems going on in entire world, you have limited resources and time,so which one you pick first and why?And how are you gonna solve the particular problem? 1 paragraph for each problem was given with enough data and total 5 problems were there.”Quality of food given to financially lower class & people died per year because of Hunger.Water pollution.Climate changeWomen's safety & securitySecurity & peace of world from terrosrist.Another topic from another group( roughly know)“ Plane crashed in desert. In this situation which 5 things you should pick from plane before it blast to survive”Now, HPCL is well known for asking mainly HR questions and question from internship and final year project in interview. From everone’s interview experience here, I can tell that one should focus more on HR questions than the technical question. No subjects need to be studied thoroughly. You should know basic about all the the subjects that's it.you never know what you will be asked. You can read interview experience of others and from that you can get the idea about interview. Selection will be based on so many parameters, toppers have a edge here! Finally 3 out of 8 was selected for medical check up.( 2 from mechanical and 1 from civil). In computer, 4 was finally selected out of 24.Medical check up was held on next day of interview process, as I didn't get selected I don't have idea about medical tests. But one of my friend told me that it was just a cake walk!Hope this answer will help you,Thanks!
Do military members have to pay any fee for leave or fiancee forms?
NOOOOOOO. You are talking to a military romance scammer. I received an email from the US Army that directly answers your question that is pasted below please keep reading.I believe you are the victim of a military Romance Scam whereas the person you are talking to is a foreign national posing as an American Soldier claiming to be stationed overseas on a peacekeeping mission. That's the key to the scam they always claim to be on a peacekeeping mission.Part of their scam is saying that they have no access to their money that their mission is highly dangerous.If your boyfriend girlfriend/future husband/wife is asking you to do the following or has exhibited this behavior, it is a most likely a scam:Moves to private messaging site immediately after meeting you on Facebook or SnapChat or Instagram or some dating or social media site. Often times they delete the site you met them on right after they asked you to move to a more private messaging siteProfesses love to you very quickly & seems to quote poems and song lyrics along with using their own sort of broken language, as they profess their love and devotion quickly. They also showed concern for your health and love for your family.Promises marriage as soon as he/she gets to state for leave that they asked you to pay for.They Requests money (wire transfers) and Amazon, iTune ,Verizon, etc gift cards, for medicine, religious practices, and leaves to come home, internet access, complete job assignments, help sick friend, get him out of trouble, or anything that sounds fishy.The military does provide all the soldier needs including food medical Care and transportation for leave. Trust me, I lived it, you are probably being scammed. I am just trying to show you examples that you are most likely being connned.Below is an email response I received after I sent an inquiry to the US government when I discovered I was scammed. I received this wonderful response back with lots of useful links on how to find and report your scammer. And how to learn more about Romance Scams.Right now you can also copy the picture he gave you and do a google image search and you will hopefully see the pictures of the real person he is impersonating. this doesn't always work and take some digging. if you find the real person you can direct message them and alert them that their image is being used for scamming.Good Luck to you and I'm sorry this may be happening to you. please continue reading the government response I received below it's very informative.

How can I fill out Google's intern host matching form to optimize my chances of receiving a match?
I was selected for a summer internship 2016.I tried to be very open while filling the preference form: I choose many products as my favorite products and I said I'm open about the team I want to join.I even was very open in the location and start date to get host matching interviews (I negotiated the start date in the interview until both me and my host were happy.) You could ask your recruiter to review your form (there are very cool and could help you a lot since they have a bigger experience).Do a search on the potential team.Before the interviews, try to find smart question that you are going to ask for the potential host (do a search on the team to find nice and deep questions to impress your host). Prepare well your resume.You are very likely not going to get algorithm/data structure questions like in the first round. It's going to be just some friendly chat if you are lucky. If your potential team is working on something like machine learning, expect that they are going to ask you questions about machine learning, courses related to machine learning you have and relevant experience (projects, internship). Of course you have to study that before the interview. Take as long time as you need if you feel rusty. It takes some time to get ready for the host matching (it's less than the technical interview) but it's worth it of course.
