    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at TAS (Chennai (India)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    In this round group of 10 people, one person is chairman and he/she will be given a case/problem statement (about 5 lines), then he/she have 1 min to read it. You aren’t allowed to make notes. Then he/she has to present the case to the rest of the group (the group doesn’t get to read the case) – 8 minutes of discussion where it is the chairperson’s authority on how to control the group discussion. 1 min to conclude, panel will inform you that you have 1 min remaining to conclude. The chairperson usually concludes. And this process is repeated for the whole group i.e. each participant will become the chairperson and present a different case to the group followed by 9 minutes of discussion. By the end the group would have discussed 10 cases for 100 minutes.

    HR interview with two panelists. I was asked general behavioural questions. No technical questions were asked. The panelists were rather senior members and kind of old-fashioned. Overall it was a good experience with no technical questions as such

    TAS Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at TAS in January 2008.

    Interview

    TAS has a very difficult and rigorous process. It only recruits from the IIMs and to management institutes in India and It starts with a lengthy aplication which includes 20 odd questions which require essay type answers. Then the applications are sorted and candidates are picked for the "Chairman Group Discussion". This is a specifc type of a group discussion where every candidate has to lead a group discussion by donning a role of a CEO or a leader. After this the best candidates are shortlisted and go on to the panel interview. This is usually a highly stressful interview with the candidates being asked tough questions. This is usually to test if the candidate has firm views and can support opinions with facts. There is also a senior HR head to test on behavioural skills to ensure that the candidate fits in the Tata culture. After this, there is a mandatory psychometric test which gauges the leadership skills of the candidate. Since the process only occurs at the top Business schools in India, each candidate also has to present their summer projects. These presentations also have a panel of senior leaders within the Tata Group criticizing the project and asking tough questions. Candidates have to be extremely confident of tehir work and recommendations to be successful in these presentations. A cumulative weighted score of all these steps are used to pick the final successful candidates.
