    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I learned about the company at the campus career fair. The three employees were very nice and asked questions about how I knew the company. They are looking at keywords at the resume such as Java and GPA. If your GPA is higher than 3.0 they would want to schedule an interview on spot. If not, it's hard to get in since so many people are applying.

The two employees that were my interviewers the next day were very intent on grilling me on other aspects of my skills outlined by my resume. They were also very interested in what I wanted out of a company I worked for.

    Attorney Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    No Offer

    Interview

    My resume was submitted by a headhunter whose communication with me was sparse and sporadic. I later learned that the GC had died suddenly, so the hiring process had been delayed. I was interviewed in a conference room by two attorneys at once: a senior female attorney and a more junior male attorney. I found the group interview process to be a bit unusual. Almost immediately, the female attorney began making snarky comments. For instance, she suggested that I had not reviewed their website. Who does not review a company's website before a job interview? I was stunned by the presumptuous insult that she delivered with a haughty smile. I had no idea what sort of sadistic game she was playing, but I had no wish to participate in it, nor any wish to work for her.

    Interview Questions

    • I was quite surprised when they gave me a test: I was to review a contract for 30 minutes and identify what was wrong with it.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    I applied through school, got the interview the week after. Two people ask you different questions, one the HR, simple behavioral questions. The technical person asks you about the projects and things that you listed on your resume. Before the programming questions he/she asks you what is your favorite language. Anyways the technical questions are pretty straight forward, simple programming questions,for example, what is operator overloading, what is the difference between C and C++, etc. I listed Linux in my resume, so if you do the same just expect them to ask you commands, for example, what is the difference between vi and vim, etc. Also, he asked me to write a program on a piece of paper, just a simple program, my guess is that he didn't care about the program, he focused on syntax.

    Interview Questions

    • I should have expected this question, but i did not prepare for it. The technical person asked me, other than schools projects and the languages i learned. what technology i am interested in, then he continued with the technology that he currently uses in TATA.   Answer Question
