Hazard Communication Author Interview

Hazard Communication Author
Midland, MI

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at TCS America in November 2010.

Interview Details – We didn't have an interview. They overtook Kelly Scientific Contracts with Dow Chemical. Neither Kelly or the Kelly employees knew anything about this until one day there was a confusing and awkward presentation about TCS. It was either stay with Kelly and not have this position or go with TCS.

Negotiation Details – We tried to keep our current rate of pay as it was with Kelly and that was granted. The benefits with TCS were automatically better.

Senior Manager Interview

Senior Manager
Edison, NJ

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at TCS America in January 2013.

Interview Details – I got my resume into TCS through a friend. They had been courting me for a while. I got laid off from a consulting gig, so I reached out to them. I had a phone interview with HR, then one with a peer consultant. Then they flew me to a face-to-face with the boss. I was very prepared, but he did all the talking. We negotiated salary on the spot.

Interview Question – The peer consultant I interviewed with was having a real problem with a client and asked how I would solve it.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Negotiated at the final interview. I was not satisfied with the outcome, but I needed a gig at the time. If you really want to negotiate with TCS, be ready to walk away if don't get what you want.

Domain Consultant Interview

Domain Consultant

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at TCS America in May 2013.

Interview Details – The position details were/are:
● Execute breakthrough domain consulting engagements
● Articulate & architect business solutions
● Provide thought leadership to customer relationships - share industry trends and best practices
● Move relationships up the value chain through domain alignment of IT services
● Engage with industry analysts

● Business Planning & Strategy Formulation
● Develop industry specific solutions
● Build world class assets and frameworks

There was a long time line involved. Received interest from the recruiter on 4/3, and finally had a phone interview with one (1) TCS employee on 4/22. Throughout the next 4 weeks all I heard was that TCS needed more time to evaluate the candidates.

On 5/6/2013 I was asked to be available on either 5/10/13 or 5/17/13 for a face-to-face interview, and that TCS would purchase the appropriate airfare for me. I scheduled the 5/17/2013 interview time slot.

I thought I would save TCS some money by driving the 10 or so hours round-trip to the interview, rather than TCS paying for airfare and a rental car. All I asked for was one night in a hotel and mileage reimbursement which would have been hundred's less than flying.

The face-to-face interview took place on 5/17/2013 as scheduled.
I filed my expense reimbursement form for hotel, mileage, and a meal on 5/22/2013 with both TCS and the recruiter .

And waited for an employment response and an expense reimbursement.

On 6/12/2013 I finally heard back from the recruiter "that although I had rich PLM experience, I would be over qualified for the role as a Windchill PLM developer role they were looking to fill".

Apparently the role I interviewed for twice and the role they were truly looking to fill were two totally different positions.

And....... I'm still waiting for my travel expense reimbursement.
