    Interview Details

    The first level of screening was a written test. The test had different sections and it was full of objective type questions. We need to get the minimum score demanded to get to the next level of technical interview. Once the technical interview is cleared, next comes the HR interview. The HR interview, which is the 3rd level of screening decides our entry into TCS.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I was recruited as part of the University placement drive and the selection process consisted of three phases:

    1) The written Test(120 minutes)

    2) The Technical Interview(Usually around 20 minutes or lesser for a fresh undergraduate but exceptions are possible)

    3) The HR Interview(usually around 20 minutes or less)

    P.S:
    There may also be another extra round called "Management round" after the technical Interview but the likeliness of conducting the management round is dependent on the hiring team's availability of time.

    Interview Details

    First, a person will contact you to arrange time for the interview. For internship, I have two 1-hour phone interviews in the same day. It'd better to have at least 2 weeks to prepare after you get the contact from Google. Also the phone signal might be bad so be prepared to have alternative way to contact. The first question is about bitwise operation. Study from Cracking the Interviews might help.

    • Design a class where you can add elements, and return the mean of the latest N elements.   Answer Question
