Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I 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 1 day. I interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (North America) (Milford, OH) in May 2009.

    Interview

    Sat in a room with a manager, HR woman, and a software engineer. They asked very general questions about what I would like to do with my career and a few basic techical questions to test for familiarity with technologies...like what is an absolute class in java, and stuff about jdbc. The interview was about 25 minutes, with no further interviews...Probably the most minimal interview for a tech job I've had. The HR woman inititially contacted me during the last month of my college education while I was job searching.
