    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (Charlotte, NC) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Met at university career fair, signed up for an interview at the recruiter there. Went to the interview the following week on campus, they called it a "java interview".

    Interview Questions

    • What are five more important concepts you have learned while programming Java. It wasn't a difficult question, but a lot of the ideas mingle together so I was having a hard time separating them.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The salary seemed low and I still had many interviews to do with other companies. It wasn't a flat out decline, but more pending as I told them I was going to think about it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in September 2014.

    Interview

    Whole process was dragged out for about two months. Initially met their HR through a virtual career fair. Sent in an application via email and asked to do a Skype interview a couple of weeks afterward. Well, the first two Skype interviews were rescheduled, then fell through because they had "issues with their Skype". Finally contacted again after about two weeks and did the Skype interview. Mostly further questions about the resume and some questions about why Tata, what do you expect to gain from this position, etc. Contacted again a week and a half later with a GPA calculation form. Received a phone call immediately after sending it in, saying they would send an offer within two weeks. Unusually did not get technical interview. Waiting to hear back.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in September 2014.

    Interview

    This was an on-campus interview. There were two interviewers asking me questions at the same time. One person was asking technical questions relating to databases and programming. The other person asked me typical behavioral questions. The interviewer would each take turns asking questions so you are not asked technical questions or behavioral questions all at once. It was quite intimidating to have two people asking you questions but come prepared to answer basic technical questions when applying for this position.

    Interview

    The first level of screening was a written test. The test had different sections and it was full of objective type questions. We need to get the minimum score demanded to get to the next level of technical interview. Once the technical interview is cleared, next comes the HR interview. The HR interview, which is the 3rd level of screening decides our entry into TCS.
