and can that be replicated? Case 4: My client is into steel manufacturing business. They manufacture a specialty steel. A new competitor entered into this space who provides good quality of steel with lower price. What should the client do? Interview 2 case Transcript Case 3: Interview started by interviewer asking my specialization. Having understood that I don’t have a Finance specialization, the interviewer started the case with a Hedge fund player. Another number intense case. Calculated the revenues and estimated if that claim is possible/ not. Found reasons for the advantages and suggested what the client can do. Case 4: I jolted down various things that the client can do and basis the discussion suggested the most possible one. One of the scenarios under 4th level of tree came the possibility of collaborating with the competitor and manufacturing their parts in our production facilities (we have ability to manufacture more) and take a cut on that. Interviewer was satisfied for this answer. Interviewer 3 Sumit Sarawgi and Partner Interview 3 HR Questions Interview started with ~15 min HR. The partner who interviewed worked at A.T. Kearney prior (I didn’t know this during the interview). So, he asked many questions about my intern experience, projects I worked and the people of the firm. He asked many internal things of the firm and bombarded with multiple questions. I maintained my calm and answered all the questions. He seemed satisfied and so I expected an easy case. Interview Number –3 Case Client is in the telecom space. They came up with a new product using which the customers can consume unlimited data per day. How should they price it. The current offering is priced at 200/- per month for 60 GB (limit of 2 GB per day) and much more data was given Interview 3 case Transcript This was one of the most difficult case of the day. In the start, I was given so much data and was asked to finish the case in 10 mins. Post the initial questions, I started with Cost + premium pricing method upon confirming with the interviewer. I jolted down many ways of finding the cost, but the interviewer rejected every one of them. During our way back to the hall, something clicked and I explained the solution and the cost that the client can charge. We were standing and discussing the solution outside the interview room and somehow this time the interviewer liked the solution and appreciated the same. Any Remarks Dos: Being confident is the key. Maintain your calm all throughout the interview and be ready to expect any new thing. I had 3 number intense cases (this may be due to my prior experience in analytics). Haven't expected this based on previous interview experiences of people.
