    Attorney Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Interview Details

    My resume was submitted by a headhunter whose communication with me was sparse and sporadic. I later learned that the GC had died suddenly, so the hiring process had been delayed. I was interviewed in a conference room by two attorneys at once: a senior female attorney and a more junior male attorney. I found the group interview process to be a bit unusual. Almost immediately, the female attorney began making snarky comments. For instance, she suggested that I had not reviewed their website. Who does not review a company's website before a job interview? I was stunned by the presumptuous insult that she delivered with a haughty smile. I had no idea what sort of sadistic game she was playing, but I had no wish to participate in it, nor any wish to work for her.

    • I was quite surprised when they gave me a test: I was to review a contract for 30 minutes and identify what was wrong with it.   View Answer

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Brunswick, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Brunswick, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Tata Consultancy Services.

    Interview Details

    The interviewing process is very relaxed and easy to pass. The mainly look for person(s) that have a 3.0 Grade Point Average minimum. As long as you show you have researched the company and have basic technical knowledge you should be fine.

    Interview Questions
    • I personally didn't have any crazy questions. I suppose the technical interview was a bit challenging. They asked me some technical questions which were easy, but, sometimes they ask to build a program, this can go from a very simple program to a bit more advanced. The most advanced (form what I hear) is making a program that detects a word being a Palindrome or not.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    As this is a global company you can negotiate where in the United States you work. Its rather challenging to work outside of the united states.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jersey City, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Two rounds of interviews were taken by the client - Phone and face to face.
    I was hired from US, but I did not do education here, so background check took approximately 45-50 days.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate a little, though I did not get what I wanted.

    My suggestion - Do NOT accept the offer if you don't think you are getting what you deserve. Because there will be a good possibility you will end up doing what you don't want to do and you don't want yourself to leave frustrated because you neither have job satisfaction nor the salary you would have been happy with.
