    Mu Sigma Harassment Interview Summary: If you want your educational qualification and experience to get ignored, get treated and interviewed in the same way as a fresh engineer being interviewed in a recruitment drive and if you do not want money but highly motivated to slog and do some good work– it is ok to interview with this company and you can avoid late disappointment. Remember it’s a recruitment DRIVE!!!
    Company Culture: Pretending to be a smart bunch of people better than people working at any other company in this world, not afraid of laughing at interview candidates during presentations or discussions.
    My Experience: Applied for Manager/Associate Manager position through a job portal. Got a call from the HR, received a case study to be solved and returned within 48 hours. I then received another call for onsite interviews. The HR booked flight and accommodation.
    HR didn’t provide details on the onsite interview process. A bunch of us were called on Friday for info session, while the actual day-long interview was on Saturday. Friday night was more of Q&A. There were 20 candidates from different backgrounds, different level of qualifications, different experience levels. So basically you would be competing with people of different exp levels for the same position. Quite a few were from top MBA schools and every one was treated in same pool, so your education will not be valued by Mu Sigma. Following is what we learnt on Fri.
    1) You should be able to learn and must have attitude to learn while on job. The company reps seemed to have their own attitude in saying this as they believe they are the only people who learn on job and there is no other company where people learn on job. There is no other company that does such analytical work, or data driven work.
    2) You should think about how prestigious and great work you will do. I was wondering whether they are an NGO serving societies that impact people at grass root level? Are they solving problems that will benefit humanity? Of course not! They are a business just like any other company. Then for what are they so proud of?
    3) Think about how great work you will do but don’t expect a salary hike of 30%, you may or may not even get at 10% hike.
    Interview Day: Get prepared for a recruitment drive you might have had years ago during your undergrad level. Here is the flavor
    1) Aptitude test – if you have proved yourself over the years and possibly you might have got your last job after an aptitude test, you still need to take one. Aptitude test for managers!!!
    2) Video synthesis test – You will be shown a video and you will be asked to write down the takeaway. The idea is to test your listening skills. God knows how do they do that!!
    3) Programming – Now comes the funny part. At Mu Sigma you need to know programming. MBA guys were stumped by this. Later Mu Sigma allowed people to write pseudo code in English but this round was not worth it. They were testing logical and structuring skills. They are solving business problems, then why can’t they do case interview to test this skill? Is there any proven better way of testing these skills as good as a case interview?
    4) Group case study – This is where you will feel frustrated and undervalued. They give you group case to test your ability of working in team setting. There were people with up to 7-8 years’ experience and so would you test them for their team skills? Ridiculous! If you have called experienced folks, of course they would have done well in teams.
    5) Case study presentation – A bunch of junior to senior Mu sigma guys would be there to evaluate your presentation and they will cut you in between your presentation for a question and they will laugh at you if you said something wrong. Unprofessionalism will you call it?
    6) Creativity Test – Again you can question the relevance of this round. You will be given a sentence and be asked to act, write a story or poem etc to explain.
    7) Peer feedback – every member of your Group case study team will be given a paper to write feedback about every other member. Does it make sense to ask for a peer feedback on basis of a 40 min exercise? Peer feedback only comes in picture when you have worked with a person for sufficient amount of days. Probably Mu Sigma doesn’t understand this. They will be happy if I evaluate them in 40 mins..
    8) Personal Interview – It seemed that my interviewer had not seen my case presentation I had sent initially. Again a totally weird way of validating that you had actually worked on your case. Wouldn’t you ask the candidate to present his/her case and ask questions? You can be asked question on your background etc.
    Evaluation/Result: You will be given a scorecard with scores in each round. There is a cut off on aptitude, so you won’t have personal interview if you dint clear aptitude. Finally you can be rejected on basis of not culturally fit with the company.

    Lots of rounds.Management not sure what they are looking for.It seemed that they are enjoying a game by having different rounds(aptitude,video synthesis,programming,case presentation,creativity,personal interview of 2/3 rounds).Not sure what they are up for.Different candidates with different work experience was shortlisted for the same level(Cant even imagine).
    Did not make sense at all.Finally,once you clear the rounds with even a good score,you are not sure whether you will at all be selected.This is so because the final selection lies in the hands of the select few.Last but not the least,your past experience does not count.Just not worth wasting your valuable time here.Think twice before you apply

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • Creativity test.Why on earth you need to be creative when you are applying for a analytics job.What is required is probably good aptitude test with perhaps good programming skills.To some extent case presentation also makes sense if you are expected to handle clients(consulting).But why creativity test?Its not a advertising company..Right!!   5 Antworten

    Ich habe mich über einen Personalvermittler beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 1 Woche. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im April 2013 bei Mu Sigma (Bengaluru (Indien)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I got a call from MS HR asking me to solve a case study ( A normal case study for consulting / MBA guys)and send them within 48 hours.He also asked my present CTC and told me to be happy with 10-15% hike.After submission & evaluating my slides, they asked me to fly to Bangalore during the weekend for further rounds. On Friday night, they kept an interaction session cum dinner.

    This interaction session was just boasting & bragging session about the company. The management felt proud by working 24X7 and thought it to be some kind of achievement for the company. The folks were making the candidates feel that people in Mu Sigma are the only people engaged in some very hi-fi rocket science work & others are just warming their seats.

    They perceived themselves as category defining company in spite of many other biggies in the same area with much better work culture & salary package. After excessive boasting for more that 4 hrs, they finally asked for dinner and it was 2230 in the watch.

    From this session, I could make out that they were not exactly solving any business problems, they were actually into data analysis of the client at a very cheap fees.They do not have any expertise, they have just a bunch of statisticians who play with numbers and are engaged in menial work of large corporations and give some petty decision making capability at an operational level (Mind it, not at strategic level). I feel, there is not much for MBA guys into this company given their modus operandi for resolving any issues is 90 % Stats & 10 % through business principles (This was as said by them)

    Next morning, we ( 21 called, 19 turned up) were supposed to be in the company at 0800 hrs for giving the presentation of the case study, only to be replaced by a pathetic aptitude test.

    The next round was video synthesis test (2-3 min movie clip and jotting down the key "Take away") which they assumed it will reveal candidate's listening skills, writing skills ( I would suggest they should read the resume for testing this skill). Crap round- My takeaway :P

    Next , Programming skill round, Question: Design a logical structure to calculate the number of small rectangles(different dimensions) that can be made to fit in a square of a particular size. Nice round, but dunno what they are looking exactly from Managers.

    Group case study: Give solution to reduce traffic congestion. Messy round with no structure and proper evaluation.

    The worst was yet to come, the creativity test. For a moment I thought I was here for an Ad campaign company.

    In all these hours, someone was monitoring you and giving points on your activities, I doubt if those person even had that much time to see how I interacted with fellow incumbents.

    Till this time , the hiring manager has not even looked at resume.

    Now they have summed up your total marks, if the hiring manager likes you/ your resume/fit he will give you numbers to increase your overall total and probably hire you.

    Now, even if you have good marks from the preceding rounds and the hiring manager views your resume and thinks you are not a good fit, he will dismally mark you in the interview rounds and makes sure you do not get the offer. Same thing happened with me, as I was marked pathetically in the interview round just because my experience was not relevant
    (Contradictory to what they said in the interaction session that they are not bothered by the past experience). But nevertheless, the interview was awesome; the interviewer was intelligent and knowledgeable)

    The good thing is that they let you know what your overall performance was and you can compare with your peers and can know at what marks they hired the candidate. So I was short of just 3 marks and as per my knowledge they hired 3-4 candidates out of 19.

    My personal experience & judgement: This overall process is time consuming and useless. This entire process can be made lean by proper screening & selection of the right candidate for interview. Just by calling people from different background and not hiring them is just a waste & non value adding activity.

    I think this is a mismanaged Lala company with no hiring sense.
