    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (North America).

    Interview Details

    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.

    Senior User Experience Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 months - interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (North America) in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was whatever user experience group wanted it to be. The quality of talent is somewhere between the kitchen sink and the sewage system.

    There is no sense of ownership, responsibility or talent from the management to set their team up for success.

    If you can talk in circles for hours and you know the UX buzzwords without knowing their meaning, you can get a job.

    Application Details

    interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (North America) in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process was very slow but once they like you , things move much faster. First interview has been an HR interview. Next interview was very detailed by the Hiring Manager and technology oriented but I thoroughly enjoyed the interview.

    The Hiring Manager had a vision for his group. I was really moved by the strategic thinking he had and was desperate to be on his group and finally I got what I wanted.

    Domain Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months - interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (North America) in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    The position details were/are:
    ● Execute breakthrough domain consulting engagements
    ● Articulate & architect business solutions
    ● Provide thought leadership to customer relationships - share industry trends and best practices
    ● Move relationships up the value chain through domain alignment of IT services
    ● Engage with industry analysts
    ● Participate in industry forums and seminars – authoring white papers internally and jointly with customers
    ● Work with industry bodies as MESA, ISA, SCOR and academic institutions to bring in contemporary business expertise, best practices and bench marks
    ● Business Planning & Strategy Formulation
    ● Develop industry specific solutions
    ● Build world class assets and frameworks

    There was a long time line involved. Received interest from the recruiter on 4/3, and finally had a phone interview with one (1) TCS employee on 4/22. Throughout the next 4 weeks all I heard was that TCS needed more time to evaluate the candidates.

    On 5/6/2013 I was asked to be available on either 5/10/13 or 5/17/13 for a face-to-face interview, and that TCS would purchase the appropriate airfare for me. I scheduled the 5/17/2013 interview time slot.

    I thought I would save TCS some money by driving the 10 or so hours round-trip to the interview, rather than TCS paying for airfare and a rental car. All I asked for was one night in a hotel and mileage reimbursement which would have been hundred's less than flying.

    The face-to-face interview took place on 5/17/2013 as scheduled.
    I filed my expense reimbursement form for hotel, mileage, and a meal on 5/22/2013 with both TCS and the recruiter .

    And waited for an employment response and an expense reimbursement.

    On 6/12/2013 I finally heard back from the recruiter "that although I had rich PLM experience, I would be over qualified for the role as a Windchill PLM developer role they were looking to fill".

    Apparently the role I interviewed for twice and the role they were truly looking to fill were two totally different positions.

    And....... I'm still waiting for my travel expense reimbursement.
