    I applied through other source. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    They called me up a few times, asked me some excessively simple questions and made me an offer. At one point one of the guys who was supposed to call me just plain didn't. I should have known something was up because of how excessively easy the interview was, and management not calling me back after asking for the call soon became the norm.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Tata Consultancy Services.

    Interview Details

    Met the recruiter at a campus event, and I received an interview about a month later. Interviewers were friendly, and asked very general questions about the software language that you are most comfortable with, in addition to a few of the languages you might have listed on your resume, so it might be useful to review them. The interview was half HR questions and half technical questions.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Panel interview with HR and technical personal. Excellent work culture and ethics. Office location is hard to reach by public transportation especially when coming from downtown or other GTA areas. Interview questions were relatively easy and basic. Focus was mostly on Object-Oriented Programming. The questions were geared towards depth in the skills mentioned in the resume rather than breadth of shallow skills.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through university's online career portal. Received an HR phone interview with basic questions about location, salary expectations, and language familiarity, etc. After a week or so, there was an in-person interview at the job site. The in-person interview consisted of a short 10-min HR interview with similar phone interview questions followed by an technical interview. The technical interview had many unexpected questions. All the questions I would normally expect such as OOP concepts, write an algorithm, and SQL queries were not asked.

    Interview Questions
    • Asked about my proficiency with Microsoft Office and then an Excel question where there's 2 columns of elements and the goal was to find the SQL left join and right join using Excel only.   View Answer

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the job through LI. Got call from HR and subsequently the technical team called after a week. The HR was very friendly and was accomodative of my schedule for the interview and even the technical team was nice. The technical interview lasted for nearly an hour. They started with experience and exposure to work environment, project experience, technical skills and tools knowledge. Then they went into the key skills required for the project and asked specific technical questions in Java/J2EE/JDBC/Spring/Hibernate. The questions started from basic and went into advance levels like multithreading, exception handling , Garbage collection etc. They asked about unix shell scripts and JDBC connectivity, testing methodology and configuration management.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Tata Consultancy Services.

    Interview Details

    Got a call from HR. She was nice and told me that she will be passing my resume into the technical team for my technical interview. That was suppose to be the day after.

    I got a call two days after asking when I would be available from the technical guys. I told them the next day at a specific time. They did not call and called 2 more days after unexpectedly and demanded for me to take the tech interview on the spot while I was at work. Did that and passed it.

    I got a call after 2 weeks in the morning telling me that I did well on my technical interview so they wanted me to go for an in person interview in the afternoon on the same day which I was totally not prepared for. I wasnt even dressed for it as they called me while I was at work. I tried prosponing it, but they didnt let me. I was forced to go for a same day interview. I thought the job was in mississauga, but found out then that it was actually in north york.

    When i got to north york, I realized that it was an interview not with TCS internal staff but with the client which is a bank and that it was an onsite position that I had applied for. It feels so disorganized since i was finding out critical information out last minute. I went into the interview all unprepared and undressed and crashed and burned.

    Got a call a week later telling me that I got turned down.

    Very easy in nature and not so focus on the technical proficiency. There is a psychological evaluation as well which i felt was arbitrary. Any average graduate would get through the interview process.
