ZS Associates Interview Experience – 6

ZS Associates Interview Experience – 6

ZS was conducting drives for the graduates of 2021 around mid-July ’20. I came to know about this drive from PrepInsta and registered for the post of BOA.

The company was hiring for three posts :

  • ​BTA (Business Technology Analyst) [For CS, IT]
  • BOA (Business Operations Associate) [For all branches]
  • DAA(Decision Analytics Associate ) [For all branches]

I am here to share my interview experience in brief.

ZS Associates Interview Experience in detailed

Round 1: General Aptitude

  • Arithmetic Ability
  • Logical Reasoning
  • Data Interpretation

Round 2: Video Interview ( Platform: First Naukri)

Few guess estimate questions were asked like :

  1. Estimate the number of washing machines in India
  2. How many people are currently flying to India

Some HR questions like :

  • What interests you most about this position?
  • If you could change one thing about your personality, what would it be? And why?

Received a mail after 2-3 days that I got selected for the next round.

Round 3: Case Study Round (Platform: First Naukri)

Qs-1:​I run a small coffee shop that has been in my family for over 30 years. Recently,I learned that Starbucks has bought the lease on a unit just around the corner. Starbucks will be opening in 3months. I’m worried about what this means for my business and want your advice.

There were around 2-3 questions from this particular case study and then gave me bar graphs and pie charts and asked some logical-based questions from that.

This was around 30 minutes video interview round,all they want to know is your approach to the case, not the actual answer. So waste your time just to find out the actual answer.

Round 4: EBA+FIT(Technical & HR Round) –

The interviewer asked  me to share my CV and I was asked to wait for few minutes so that he can check my resume.

Questions that were asked :

  • Introduce yourself.
  • What are polymorphism and abstraction?
  • Define black box testing.
  • What are the different stages of SDLC?
  • Why is C not considered as an OOPs language?
  • Do you know about the latest advancements in C++?
  • Difference between structure and union.
  • Explain pointer to a pointer with an example.
  • Why are you interested in this company?
  • What challenges are you facing in IT?
  • Do you enjoy researching any topic?
  • Tell us about your failures.

Again few guess estimate questions and puzzles like :

  • Estimate the volume of a plane.
  • You are provided with 2 buckets that can hold 3 liters and 5 liters. How do you fill 4 liters?
  • Any questions for us?

I was able to attempt most of the questions. After 2months I received a mail that Iam selected in ZS Associates for the BOA role.

Tips:Prepare the guess estimate questions and case study well. Be calm and confident. You have everything to make it through!
