    Junior Java Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    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.

    Recruiting Business Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (Atlanta, GA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The organization identified my resume from a resume database. I was contacted by a recruiter that works for Tata off site. I had an hour long telephone interview with the off site (internal) recruiter. She explained the role as a newly created position in a heavily matrixed environment working on very manual systems; however, in describing the opportunity it sounded like an exciting prospect to be able to build something and join the organization in a newly created role. The recruiter was very professional and really piqued my interest in the opportunity and the organization. I then proceeded to the "In office" interview stage with the Manager - Reporting and Data Analytics, Practice Coordinator and Managing Partner of the Consulting Practice. I spent about an hour with the Manager and Practice Coordinator and about 45 minutes to an hour with the Managing Partner. There was a lot of discussion about the company itself but not about the expectations or deliverables.

    Interview Questions

    • The initial phone conversation with the internal off site recruiter was very positive. She clearly enjoys her role and the organization and that added to the excitement of speaking to the team for the in person interview. We talked for over an hour and I was left with a positive impression about the opportunity going forward to the next step.

      Unfortunately, the on site experience was not as positive. Lots of questions about working on Excel and (presumably) outdated or not properly configured systems that don't necessarily talk to each other. How involved were you in any kind of ATS or HRIS implementation/requirement gathering for a new system? They have decided on a new system but have not implemented yet. Could you handle this with minimal support.

      A lot of questions and discussion about working on manual systems and providing fast accurate results despite not having the tools. What is your approach given that situation etc. Questions about gaining consensus with groups or individuals that don't necessarily want to partner and working in a matrix reporting structure. Questions about relationship development (again with those that might not be especially keen on partnering) and working with individuals from other/varied cultures.

      Very small office with 6 or so people. My impression was the team was very intimidated by the local leadership with whom I met. The impression I had was the small team was walking on eggshells abd there was a nervous energy when discussing working with local leadership.

      What exactly they wanted done was very vague. I did not get straightforward answers to my questions about performance measurement, specific expectations, what success looks like at 30, 60, 90 days. I would also note that one interviewer in particular was a bit rude. I said I was looking forward to hearing more about the role and he answered "That's obvious." Interviewer also consistently checked his watch especially when I asked questions about specifics regarding the role.
