    Interview Details

    first HR interview, then tech interview through skype. The HR asks general behavioral questions like why TCS, what is your strong point? The tech questions are fair, including data structures, algorithms, ect. The overall procedure is fairly easy compared with other companies. However, the offer is not provided since I am not a US citizen...

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Tata Consultancy Services.

    Interview Details

    Started with an initial screening interview with the offshore team. Next interview was with an experienced delivery manager. Finally, had an onsite interview.

    Assistant Systems Engineer Interview

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone screen, interview then series of multiple interviews in a single visit onsite. I found the process to be lackluster - when I arrived for interviews they seem unprepared for me. There was no post interview follow up on their end, including my travel reimbursement. I had to pursue travel reimbursement as well as status on candidacy. I received a five word sentence to let me know they were not interested. It's OK if not a good fit but did not feel was treated in professional manner. If they want to succeed in attracting US talent, they will need to do more.
