    Interview

    Telephone interviews with multiple levels of hiring representatives. Asked basic process and behavioral type questions. Some difficulty understanding one of the interviewers. English was probably not their native language. Interviewed with several levels of recruiters before I interviewed with decision makers. Still in the interview process. Very friendly and polite interviewers

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services.

    Interview

    I had an on campus interview. Since my GPA was above their required minimum I went directly to the interview. There was a panel of 4 people. 3 developers and 1 from HR. They asked a few technical and a few general questions. The technical questions were very easy. They asked basic questions like for loop. The HR questions were mainly to see whether I could work in a team and whether or not I would be willing to relocate.

    Interview

    They barely interviewed me. They asked me a few random analytic questions, then asked me about some translation, and I literally had to explain to them that you cannot use Google Translate to translate legal documents. Amazing.
