    Software Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (North America).

    Interview

    Met them at a job fair. First they have a simple skill based test right there (which I kinda bypassed because I just told him what I knew and what I worked on before we got to the questions and he said I was good enough). After that they schedule an on campus interview. After that I got a call a few weeks later telling me I got the job.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you use a switch statement for: I did not know the answer so he asked me another one. Say you had user input and you knew that they might enter text instead of a number. How would you handle it.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (North America).

    Interview

    The process was fairly quick and professional overall. The interview process for me involved an initial brief screening interview with their recruiter over the phone. This was followed by another over the phone interview with an internal HR person with a few technical questions but nothing terribly challenging. The last interview was a video interview with the hiring manager and a subordinate this one was more scenario based and open ended than the preceding interviews. None of the questions really seemed highly challenging nor did they seem to really probe my previous experience as much as I expected.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The negotiation phase was handled by HR which I didn't particularly like. But I was able to get a better salary that was outside of the range the initial recruited told me about. I would suggest that you push as I've known a few people who have gotten relocation assistance.

    Interview

    Smooth and to the point. It was fast being a walkin.I've heard few technical interviews took hours to finish. But if you are confident in your skills and knowledge, the interview will not be a nerve breaking one. And infact will be a good experience.

    Design Position - Mobilty Team Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (North America) (Santa Clara, CA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    TCS is a joke! - No, I am serious. Usually, I never give negative reviews, but, my experience with TCS ( Santa Clara ) was upsetting that I think people ought to know the working methodology here. Let's start from the very beginning - HR! HR at TCS ms. Susandhya Narayani as much as I would think they are critical in hiring process the lack of professionalism she brings to the table - I still wonder why people (TCS) have incompetent staff? First, she sends me an email getting my name wrong. Not apologetic or corrects herself. Is extremely incompetent in asking unnecessary questions and lacks professional etiquette. TCS, I respect my job. Please hire people who respect professionalism to your team. Instead of incompetent people.

    Reasons for Declining

    I would like to work for a place where employees are treated with respect and professional etiquette. The hiring process was so bad that it actually made me re-think of joining the company. I am not the one at loss in all honesty. I think I made the right and best decision of my life!
