Rajeesh R had recently got selected in the ICICI PO program and he sent me a nice mail thanking for the materials I blogged in the post: Online Papers and study material for ICICI PO Exam.

I reproduce the partial content of the mail below:Being a nice soul as he is, he wanted to share his ICICI PO experience and sent me the same to publish it in the blog, so that future ICICI PO aspirants can get some insights.

Thank you Rajeesh for the noble gesture. Hope other people would share their experiences, by posting comments to this post. Here goes the ICICI PO experience of Rajeesh:

Actual ICICI Written test experience:
I had my Written test in Chennai centre. After my app test only I saw your interview tips. So I just prepared only percentage and loss & profit based problems (as I had problems related to it in Bank exam papers, which I downloaded through Google) and other than that I didn't prepared anything.

My ICICI Written test experience is as follows:
1) English comprehension type in which we have to choose which one in true and false according to the passage.
I did well that part as I believe pure concentration is enough to choose the correct options. I didn't read full passage but first I read the question and choose the answer for that from the paragraph. This helped me to take more time to choose correct answer.

2) Numerical Problem type: Half of the questions are known as I prepared %,loss & profit problems and I did well those problem and also solved some other problems and at last I had 10 to 8 unsolved problem which I do not know to answer. I choose the answer which I felt may be correct.

3) Verbal reasoning, in that also I choose which I felt as absolute one.

4) Solving diagram & shapes: Many sequential diagrams are given and asked to choose which one follows that sequence. First I find out what is the sequence in diagram and then chosen the answer.

Actual ICICI GD and PI interview experience:
I had my ICICI GD and PI interview on 21st February, 2009 in Chennai.
Mine is 9.45 batch and I went there by 9 am. We were asked to seat in canteen floor. When I went there the first batch (9.00) candidates are seated separately by 12 in group. Before I called for verification I made new friends there and spoke about what will be GD topic (it was case study) and had intro with them.

By 10.30 our batch had GD. An HR person gave us some 3 pages sheet and asked us to read it and speak about it. The GD topic given to us is AS A PRESIDENT OF AN UNIVERSITY HOW WILL I ALLOT MONEY FOR VARIOUS DEPT IN THAT UNIV.

After giving topic HR person went out for 5min and while going out he spoke to another HR person that he selected 11 in previous batch and I heard what he said. This gave me confidence that rejection is less so if we speak well and clear, we can be selected.

We had 15min to share our ideas and a girl in our batch started first. I kept silent for first 5 min and listened to others speech.
When I started to speak I said some points which others didn't said and it was accepted by others too. Then at last HR asked us to stop and gave chances to persons who didn't speak well. Then he asked one in us to give a conclusion. Ten of us got selected for PI.

We asked to have psychometric test in a private net center and four of my friends from our GD batch went together and finished that test.

By 4 pm I was called for PI. There were 3 cabins for PI. The instructor who called us, made 4 of us to sit near a cabin and others in 2nd cabin. I was waiting in 2nd cabin till 6 and kept me relaxed and cool.

The same instructor came and called my name and asked me WHY U'R SITTING? U R SUPPOSED TO BE IN 3rd CABIN?

For a min I got tensed coz he only asked me to sit in 2nd cabin.
Then I went to 3rd cabin and my friend was there in room. He was interviewed by 2 HR.I was sitting outside what HR would thought me as I was not there when I was called by them.

Finally my turn came, the first question asked to me is WHERE U HAVE BEEN WHEN WE CALLED U?

I explained what happened and they got convinced. My 2nd question was
ARE U READY TO WORK IF U POSTED ANYWHERE IN INDIA?
I said YES SIR,I CAN ADAPT TO ANY ENVIRONMENT SO I AM READY SIR.

3rd question ABOUT YOUR FAMILY? WHAT IS YOUR DAD'S ANNUAL INCOME?
I answered him. He noted the annual income I said and my dad's profession.

4th question WHAT IS YOUR PERCENTAGE IN YOUR ACADEMICS?
I answered him. He noted the percentages also.

5th question DO U KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT ICICI?
I prepared well for this question and said its history, awards won in 2008 and about its total profit and assets detail in numbers.

6th question WILL U WORK IN SALES DEPT?
I took few seconds to answer him. I said that sales field is not suitable for me, I'm not having experience in sales and asked him what about other departments?
He asked me am I have any experience in solving customer problems, passing cheques...He said not to be worried they will train me and make sales field suitable for me. I said then I'm ready to work in sales sir.

At last he asked me DO U HAVE ANY QUESTION?
I said YES SIR ABOUT TRAINING.
He asked WHAT U WANT TO KNOW ABOUT TRAINING?
I said IS THERE ANT CUTT-OFF IN TRAINING TO GET CLEAR FOR GETTING JOB?
He said YES,U HAVE TO SCORE 80% OVERALL TO GET CLEAR.
I said OK SIR, THEN I WIL TRAIN HARD TO GET 80%

Then they shaken my hand and said OK RAJEESH, ALL THE BEST.
I said THANK YOU SIR and left the room.

This is my experience Sir, Kindly send me suggestions about what mistake I did in this interview so that I could rectify it.

Thank you.

My comments:
No Rajeesh, I could not find any mistakes in your interview conduct. That is why you got selected!For future ICICI aspirants:
In GD, it may quite be possible that entire group may be selected - here in group of Rajeesh, 10 out of 12 were selected. So do not ruin your chances by showing your meanness to other group members - by dominating the group or making negative criticism.
