    Junior Java Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in May 2017.

    Interview

    I received an inmail on linkedin from an official TCS recruiter. I replied to all his questions in a timely fashion, however, received his delayed responses at 2-3 days gaps. I believe that he was not interested in the recruitment to begin with.
    Its been a week since his last response. Apparently, I've noticed that he had stopped replying once he learned, after a phone interview with me, that I am an F1 student and will be available to work on OPT.
    So, in conclusion, they are looking for GC and US citizens only.
    International students, don't bother wasting your time and patience on Indian companies in US as they have abused their power to H1B intake and can no longer sponsor you.
    Hope this helps.
