    Senior User Experience Designer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Not really.

    Positive Experience

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Interview

    I got my resume into TCS through a friend. They had been courting me for a while. I got laid off from a consulting gig, so I reached out to them. I had a phone interview with HR, then one with a peer consultant. Then they flew me to a face-to-face with the boss. I was very prepared, but he did all the talking. We negotiated salary on the spot.

    Negotiation
