    Interview Questions

    • Hello everyone,

      After clearing the aptitude exam @TCS Off campus, Feb 20, 2015, I was called for interview at TCS Gitanjali Park office Kolkata. Without elaborating much, let me start with my interview experience.

      It was a big room and 2-3 interviews were being simultaneously held in different corners of the room. The co-ordinator directed me to a corner. All I found was an empty chair and three interviewer facing me. They were One sir and two mam. After greeting them with a smile, I was asked to take a seat.

      Interviewer 2 : Ok, you are in your 8th semester right?
      Interviewer 2 : Well, you must be doing your final year project. Can you tell us a bit about that.

      Interviewer 3 : Did you use any hardware or was it only computational?

      Interviewer 2: So, you are from mechanical department. What are the subjects you read in mechanical course?

      Interviewer 2 : Well, what kind of machines you design ?

      Interviewer 2 : Give me an example. (She gave me a paper to illustrate).

      Interviewer 1 : Tell me how many types of ways you can define.

      He immediately said "That's right protected " (I got his hint).
      I explained inheritance with the protected type. Gave an example to illustrate and prove I am confident.

      Interviewer 1 : Well What else than studies? Do you play?

      Interviewer 1 : Don't you love music at least ?
