This is the final round the HR round. This is where there is no technical stuff discussed and everything is more about how are you as a person and the way you deal with situations and the way you react to certain circumstances . They try to question your creative abilities. Some of the questions I faced are
1) Questions mostly regarding personal details those not on your resume.
2) What do you do on a stressful day 
3) A situation to prove your time management skills 
4) What do you know about our company ?
5) Why did you choose our company?
