Interview Details – Resume shortlist followed by Telephone Interview. The resume shortlist is mostly based on Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) and projects. Around 15 were shortlisted out of 50 students. The interview is very generic. They didn't concentrate much on technical aspects. Most of the questions were HR oriented-- Whether my interests match with the profile etc.

Interview Question – Why am I interested in the given profile. Two profiles were given, one on communications and other on embedded systems. I was asked to explain which of those I would like to choose and why   Answer Question

Customer Service Managet Interview

Customer Service Managet

I applied online and interviewed at Tyco.

Interview Details – The process was very straightforward, I'm not sure the hiring manager knew what he was looking for or the HR person, I received very positive feedback. It was so positive I thought an offer was going to be made. This interview was a month ago and to this date I still have not heard back, not even a "sorry we find another candidate" email no communication what so ever.

Interview Question – It was so basic no unexpected questions   Answer Question

IT Operations Intern Interview

IT Operations Intern
Princeton, NJ

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Tyco in June 2011.

Interview Details – I had one initial interview with the two workers who ended up being my bosses. I thought this was fantastic because the social environment of the company is extremely important. The interview was not harsh or overbearing, and was very relaxed and open. They were very kind and after 1 interview I was offered the position.

Interview Question – What makes you qualified for this position?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate when I started and stopped working, and probably could have negotiated a few more items but was happy with the offer.
