I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in June 2012.

Interview Details – I had an initial Technical phone interview followed by the client general phone interview. I then got the offer after about 2 weeks when I received a call from the HR.

Interview Question – I am not too surprised or count any of the questions as difficult because they were the technical stuff I do on a daily basis. Nothing too special.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation, I was offered the job based on a predetermined salary.

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in September 2013.

Interview Details – For people with more then 8.5 CGPA, there is direct interview which is a mixture of both technical and HR. They mostly ask questions from resume and your area of interest. Don't drag answers. Just say up to the point and it'll be over within 10 minutes. If you drag without knowing the answer, they just keep asking questions from your answer.

Interview Question – Why TCS? Where do you see yourself in 5years?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Masters degree opportunity
