best interview Question 1:

This interview had happened in Mumbai for New IIMs (Indian Institute of Management) –

After 15 minutes of sweet interview , they hit me with a question.

Question: What is Marketing ? ( I am in marketing dept of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL)).

Answering, I said, “Something that contained two words – “need” and “want” “.

Next question to me was, “So, what is the difference between “need” and “want” ?”

Meanwhile, a guy was serving tea & biscuits to the interviewers. In the heat of moment I said,

“Chai patti” (tea-bag) is need for tea and having biscuits is want.”

The whole panel laughed a lot and I, too, shared in the laughter. Then they started pulling my legs by saying –

Panelist 1: I want lemon tea. Is this my need or want? I said it’s your want.

Panelist 2: I want more warm water. Is this my need or want ?

The whole interview surrounded on Chai (Tea) and we had Chai pe Charcha (Discussion based on tea) ūüėÄ

At my Deloitte final partner interview, 60 minutes after the partner had already asked ‘Why Deloitte?’

Him – ‘Why are you here?’

Me – ‘…I’m sorry I don’t understand?’

Him – ‘You studied Literature. I see that you’re a rapper with his own website. You studied all Art A levels. So clearly you SHOULDN’T be here. So. Why are you here?’

Me – ‘Oh…Truth be told, I was asking myself the same thing. But then I thought f*ck it let me see what this is all about. And heck – you seem nice enough. So why not?’

Him – Stunned silence. He looks at me open mouthed




Thanks. That will be all.’

I got the job.

This happened with a friend X of mine .

Interviewer: Who do you think would make a successful person : A stubborn or an Open Minded  Person?

X: Obviously, Sir an Open Minded person . An Open-Minded person would always welcome other’s suggestions and thoughts . This would help in the overall development of the company .

Interviewer: Don’t you think that a stubborn person would be more determined and do better with his own ideas ?

X: No, Sir ….. Blah blah blah ……

The interviewer was not convinced by any answer .

Interviewer : Give me just one perfect reason and I’ll consider Hiring you .

X : Sir , you are being stubborn now and thus you would never hire me which will hinder the growth of your company .

The interviewer went dumb-struck .

2 minutes of silence .

P.S. : The other Interviewer welcomed him to the Company .

At Ernst & Young, for my CA articleship interview.

Interviewer: So, have you applied anywhere else?

Me: Yes sir, I’ve applied to a couple of other firms as well.

Interviewer: Why? Aren’t you serious about joining us?

Me: No sir, it’s just that I really needed some practice before I had my interview here.

Got the job!

best interview Question 5:

This question was asked to me during a technical interview. All was going fine, but suddenly, the interview asked:

Interviewer : “So, Can you tell me how many bicycles are there in India”.

Me : (Thinking) :O Where did this come from :-/

          I could think of no answer, and suddenly, I just gave him a random number, (2 crore, some lakh, some thousand, 234).

Interviewer : (Quite Amazed) Where did this number come from? Can you prove it?

Me : I counted it yesterday, can you prove me wrong.

This followed 3-4 cycles of prove it, prove it wrong before Interviewer finally gave up. He started laughing and moved to next question.

Result : Hired. ūüėÄ
