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

Interview Question – Did not encounter any such question.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation as it was campus placement and for fresher. They had fixed package of 3.15 LPA
