    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was first called by HR department, got asked a few typical questions, such as expected salary. Got a technical phone interview next day, lasted about an hour. It ranged from previous experience in my field to theory questions about Java. They will ask about what you have done before and go on to ask you about your technical strength, in my case Java.

    Interview Questions
    • A few trick questions like the difference between similar reserved words in Java. For example final and finally. There weren't any particularly difficult questions overall.   Answer Question

    Do your research about the salaries, if you ask for little that is what they will give you.
