    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richardson, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. 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 Questions
    • 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.

    Interview Details

    Interview process can be rocky, was recruited by an unknown firm from another state- group type interview that lasted less than 5 minutes at a hotel. Lots of phone calls, hit or miss, not sure if the entire process was real, but turned out great for me. Just be patient. Indian company not American and they have different processes than we're accustomed to -
