Ashok Leyland


Placement Experience :

Written Test :


"There were only 2 rounds for the whole process. The first one was a screening  test - the questions were mainly related to automobile engineering, mechanical engineering and metallurgy. They selected 7 from meta and we had to attend interview at Chennai. Two of us got the job.

Well that was my first interview and so I dont know how to compare it with other campus interviews, but for me to seemed like a very informal one. There were only 2 people in the panel - one HR lady and a Tech person. Its was not a stress interview or anything, and I was under no pressure at all ( or atleast I felt very comfortable ). After the interview, though I felt I hadn't done very well and was worried if I did not match their expectations,  somehow it clicked for me !!   These are few of the questions I was asked during my Ashok Leyland interview:

- What is tempering? Why is it done?

- Difference between tempering and annealing?

- How do you measure hardness of rubber?

- What type of power source do you generally use for welding and why?

- What are the functions of flux in welding?

- General questions about my IPT at salem steel plant : what are the processes / what grades of steel are produced?

- Iron carbon phase diagram - Dram and explain its uses in Ashok Leyland.

- What is carburising/nitriding-chemicals used;  what are the applications?

These are the only ones I remember as of now.
