Biomedical Engineer Interview

Biomedical Engineer

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services.

Interview Details – It seemed to be very unorganized. The first interview was via skype and went well. Just very basic, normal interview questions. I was told that I was moving on to the technical interview process (basic stuff about your technical experience) and would be contacted shortly. After the technical interview I was told I would be notified in 2 days about whether or not I got the job. I was not. I called them and asked them, I was told they were still deciding. I was told they would DEFINITELY be done by the next day. They weren't. This went on for about a week. Finally, I was told I got the job, but they did not adhere to my requested location OR start date.

Reason for Declining – Company seemed unprofessional and they didn't adhere to my start date or location requests. They offered little to no help with relocation (and only gave me 4 days to move across the country and find a place to live). Pay check was nice, but it wasn't enough to make up for everything else.

Very Easy Interview

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Richardson, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services.

Interview Details – University campus presentation with refreshments and sandwiches. On-campus presentation and interview sign up. Easy technical questions in the career center. Offer-letter granted month later with only 4 days to decline or accept.

Interview Question – Easy interview. The quality of technical questions was very disappointing.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate initially. For college hires, TCS likes to lower the salary by 8% less than one month before graduation 5 months after an initial offer is accepted and signed and say "take it or leave it". Leaving it usually causes TCS to back down.

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
New Brunswick, NJ

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services.

Interview Details – The interviewing process is very relaxed and easy to pass. The mainly look for person(s) that have a 3.0 Grade Point Average minimum. As long as you show you have researched the company and have basic technical knowledge you should be fine.

Interview Question – I personally didn't have any crazy questions. I suppose the technical interview was a bit challenging. They asked me some technical questions which were easy, but, sometimes they ask to build a program, this can go from a very simple program to a bit more advanced. The most advanced (form what I hear) is making a program that detects a word being a Palindrome or not.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – As this is a global company you can negotiate where in the United States you work. Its rather challenging to work outside of the united states.
