    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (North America) (Milford, OH) in May 2009.

    Interview

    Sat in a room with a manager, HR woman, and a software engineer. They asked very general questions about what I would like to do with my career and a few basic techical questions to test for familiarity with technologies...like what is an absolute class in java, and stuff about jdbc. The interview was about 25 minutes, with no further interviews...Probably the most minimal interview for a tech job I've had. The HR woman inititially contacted me during the last month of my college education while I was job searching.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Low pay, and I've read a lot of bad reviews about working for the company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (North America).

    Interview

    Met them at a job fair. First they have a simple skill based test right there (which I kinda bypassed because I just told him what I knew and what I worked on before we got to the questions and he said I was good enough). After that they schedule an on campus interview. After that I got a call a few weeks later telling me I got the job.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you use a switch statement for: I did not know the answer so he asked me another one.

      Say you had user input and you knew that they might enter text instead of a number. How would you handle it.   1 Answer

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Raleigh, NC

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (North America) (Raleigh, NC) in February 2014.

    Interview

    The interview took place on campus during an on-campus hiring event. The whole interview can be summed up to a few questions: Do you have basic programming knowledge, like the difference between list and array? Are you willing to re-allocate when company need you to? Do you have US citizenship or residency?
    My interview was not technical at all. Most of the time was spent on the HR person explaining me what I will expect after joining the company, with some misleading information as well. For example, when I asked about their developer positions, was told that there a many opportunities, but was only after started working I found out almost all of the work my co-workers and me get are technical support instead of any developing that includes programming.
