Spoken English Conversation 20: Job Interview

Priya: Good morning, Vikram. How are you?
Vikram: Good morning, Priya. I am good. Thanks for asking. How are you?
Priya: Good. Thank you. Vikram, I want to introduce you to Girish. Girish is working as a project leader in our company. He will be interviewing you today.
Girish: Thanks, Priya. Thanks for the introduction.
Priya: You are welcome. Girish, I will leave the meeting now. So you can continue with the interview.
Girish: Hi, Vikram. How are you?
Vikram: Good morning, sir. I am good. Thanks for asking. How are you?
Girish: Thanks. I am also doing good. Vikram, as you know, you are being interviewed for the position of mechanical design engineer. Please tell me about yourself.
Vikram: Sure, sir. I am Vikram from Mysuru. I completed my mechanical engineering degree in the year 2020. I have a total of 2.5 years of work experience. At present, I am working as an engineer at Accurate Tools. As an engineer at Accurate Tools, I am well-versed in the design of jigs, fixtures, and press tools related to the automotive domain. I have worked on many tooling projects listed in my resume. I will be glad to explain any of my projects. I am also very proficient in part design, assembly design, and drafting workbenches of catia v5. I also understand from Priya that the current role requires proficiency in SolidWorks. I created a few 3D models using SolidWorks as a student at my engineering college. I am confident of learning SolidWorks within two weeks.
Girish: Good. Can you briefly explain one of the critical projects you have worked on at Accurate Tools?
Vikram: Sure, sir. I was part of the team which designed a BIW fixture for a passenger car frame for one of the top automotive OEM in India. There were six welding stations that we designed to achieve the final structure. I was responsible for the design of two welding stations. We received the CAD model of the frame as input from the customer. In addition, the customer also provided the process plan. The process plan identified the welding stations. First, I cleaned the input data to retain the parts applicable to my welding station. Then I designed the 3D assembly of the welding fixture. Locators, clamps, and a rotary table were the main components of the welding fixture. After the approval of the 3D design, I created the manufacturing drawings, which included the application of GD&T.
Girish: Impressive. What were the challenges you faced, and how did you overcome those challenges?
Vikram: The main challenges in welding fixture design are fool proofing and fixture lock. For fool proofing, we provide fixture elements to ensure the correct loading of the parts. To prevent the fixture lock, we create an instance with all the clamps open and visually check that the welded assembly doesn’t get locked in the fixture after welding.
Girish: Ok. How do you ensure the quality of the deliverables?
Vikram: Sir, we have checklists to ensure the quality of 3D design and 2D drafting. We perform a self-check, and one of our senior engineers shall perform a peer check. Without filled check sheets, we are not supposed to deliver the final data to manufacturing.
Girish: Nice. On a scale of one to ten, how proficient are you with catia v5? One being the least and ten the highest.
Vikram: Sir, I would rate myself seven out of ten. Over the past two years, I have created hundreds of 3D designs and manufacturing drawings.
Girish: Why only seven? Why not ten?
Vikram: Sir, as you know, the tooling design is primarily solid modelling, with little opportunity to work on surface models. So, I rate myself seven out of ten.
Girish: Ok. Why do you want to quit your current job?
Vikram: Sir, I am looking for career growth in terms of technical responsibility and financial gain. I believe in having the skills and experience to lead projects. I am looking forward to such opportunities in your esteemed organization.
Girish: Nice. I see you are currently living in Mysuru. If selected, are you planning to relocate to Bengaluru?
Vikram: Yes, sir. I have many of my friends living in Bengaluru. I can join them any time.
Girish: Ok, if selected, how fast can you join us?
Vikram: Sir, I have a notice period of three months at Accurate Tooling.
Girish: Would it be possible for you to join us in one month?
Vikram: Once I receive the offer letter from Top engineering services, I can check with the HR team at Accurate Tooling. I will try my best to join as soon as possible.
Girish: Ok. Do you have experience interacting with customers?
Vikram: Not much, sir. Though I used to participate in design review meetings with customers, I was a silent observer. Most of the customer communication is handled by my seniors. But I have a lot of experience interacting with the manufacturing department.
Girish: Ok. Do you have any experience in planning and scheduling projects?
Vikram: Yes, sir. I have always estimated efforts for my projects, then submitted the plan and schedules to my seniors.
Girish: Ok. What are your strengths and weaknesses?
Vikram: Sir, my strengths are my technical capability in designing tooling’s like jigs, fixtures, and press tools. My current weakness is project management. However, I believe I can quickly learn project management with your guidance.
Girish: Ok. How good are you at the application of GD&T?
Vikram: Sir, I have a practical sense of applying GD&T on manufacturing drawings. In addition, my interaction with the manufacturing and quality department has helped me become proficient in using GD&T on manufacturing drawings.
Girish: Why should we hire you?
Vikram: You should hire me for my skills and experience, communication and collaboration skills, learning ability, and goal-orientedness.
Girish: Ok, I am done with my interview. Is there anything you want to ask me?
Vikram: Sir, I have worked in the automotive domain for the past two years. I believe the current opportunity is also related to the automotive domain. Am I right?
Girish: Yes. You are right.
Vikram: When will I get to know the results of this interview?
Girish: I am interviewing a few more candidates for this position this week. You should get to know about your selection in the next ten to fifteen days. If you are selected, Priya will call you.
Vikram:Ok, sir.
Girish: Is there anything else you want to know?

At present, I am working as an engineer at Accurate Tools. As an engineer at Accurate Tools, I am well-versed in the design of jigs, fixtures, and press tools related to the automotive domain. I have worked on many tooling projects listed in my resume. I will be glad to explain any of my projects. I am also very proficient in part design, assembly design, and drafting workbenches of catia v5. I also understand from Priya that the current role requires proficiency in SolidWorks. I created a few 3D models using SolidWorks as a student at my engineering college. I am confident of learning SolidWorks within two weeks.
Mahesh: Good. Can you briefly explain one of the critical projects you have worked on at Accurate Tools?
Vikram: Sure, sir. I was part of the team which designed a BIW fixture for a passenger car frame for one of the top automotive OEM in India. There were six welding stations that we designed to achieve the final structure. I was responsible for the design of two welding stations. We received the CAD model of the frame as input from the customer. In addition, the customer also provided the process plan. The process plan identified the welding stations. First, I cleaned the input data to retain the parts applicable to my welding station. Then I designed the 3D assembly of the welding fixture. Locators, clamps, and a rotary table were the main components of the welding fixture. After the approval of the 3D design, I created the manufacturing drawings, which included the application of GD&T.
Mahesh: Nice. What are the six degrees of freedom?
Vikram:Six degrees of freedom is nothing but the freedom of movement of a rigid body in 3D space. The six degrees of freedom are three linear and three rotational movements along the x, y, and z-axis.
Mahesh: Ok. What is the significance of six degrees of freedom in jig or fixture design?
Vikram: We need to arrest the six degrees of freedom of the component in the jig or fixture design.
Mahesh: Imagine you have a rectangular plate with two holes of the same size in the same line. How would you locate the plate using the holes?
Vikram: Sir, I will design a round and a diamond pin for locating the rectangular plate.
Mahesh: What kind of fit would you use for the round pin?
Vikram: Sir, I prefer H7g6 for the locating surface and H7p6 for the shank.
Mahesh: What is poka-yoke?
Vikram: Sir, poka-yoke is a fool proofing method that ensures the part is always loaded in the right position and orientation.
Mahesh: What is the difference between a jig and a fixture
Vikram: Sir, the cutting tool is guided in jigs, whereas the cutting tool is not guided in fixtures
Mahesh: For critical components, clamp marks are not desired. So how can we avoid clamp marks?
Vikram: Sir, we can use clamps with PU tips, and we can also use vacuum cups.
Mahesh: What should be the maximum weight a jig or a fixture can be designed?
Vikram: Sir, from my experience, 15kg is the maximum weight a technician can lift easily. So, we must design a jig or a fixture to a maximum of 15kg. If the design weight exceeds 15kg, we should provide lifting hooks.
Mahesh: What is a roughness value?
Vikram: Surface roughness is the average value of the peaks and valleys formed by the machining process. Lower the surface roughness value, higher the cost, and vice versa.
Mahesh: What roughness value can be achieved in grinding?
Vikram: In grinding, we can achieve a roughness value of 0.8 micrometers.
Mahesh: Can you explain perpendicular GD&T?
Vikram: Sir, let’s take an example of a T joint. First, we must apply a datum to the base. The datum will be the reference surface. Then we will apply the perpendicularity GD&T to the perpendicular to the base plate. The GD&T feature control frame will consist of three boxes. The first box will have the perpendicularity symbol, the second box will have the tolerance value, and the third box will have the datum symbol.
Mahesh: What are the main advantages of using a jig or a fixture?
Vikram: Sir, Quality, Productivity, and interchangeability are three main advantages of a jig or a fixture.
Mahesh: How would you ensure that the parts are not interfering in the design stage?
Vikram: Sir, I will perform an interference check in the 3D assembly. In Catia, it is called a clash and clearance check.
Mahesh: How would you create a Bill of Material in SolidWorks?
Vikram: Sir, in catia v5, we have a command to create an automatic bill of material. I am sure there will be a similar command in SolidWorks as well. I always prefer to create an automatic bill of material as this bill of material updates automatically whenever we add or remove parts.
Mahesh: What is the difference between detailed and broken views?
Vikram: Sir, a detail view is created to show intricate details in a view, especially in a section view. The broken view is created for long parts, like extrusions, to fit the view in the drawing sheet.
Mahesh: Which standards do you use for fixture design?
Vikram: Sir, we use customer-specific standards. However, if there are no customer-specific standards, we use NAAMS standards.
Girish: Ok, I am done with my interview. Is there anything you want to ask me?
Vikram: Sir, I have worked in the automotive domain for the past two years. I believe the current opportunity is also related to the automotive domain. Am I right?
Girish: Yes. You are right. However, we are an engineering services company, so there could be opportunities in other domains like aerospace in the future. We expect our engineers to be flexible and adaptable.
Vikram: When will I get to know the results of this interview?
Girish: I am interviewing a few more candidates for this position this week. You should get to know about your selection in a week. If you are selected, Priya will call you.
Vikram: Ok, sir.
Girish: Is there anything else you want to know?
Vikram: No, sir. I want to thank you for providing this opportunity to speak to you. Thanks for your time.
Girish: Thanks for attending this interview. Bye. Take care.
