Interview

Interview process was fair. TCS asked valid behavioral questions for the first phone interview and technical questions on the second one. Also very helpful with letting you know the upcoming steps for your process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I'm entering my final semester of college and met with TCS recruiters at our job convention. The interview consisted of 2 phone calls. The first was with HR and was behavioral. The lady was extremely nice and told me all about the company. The second was with an Indian man in New York and was technical. The technical interview consisted of basic questions covering your 4 years of college. It was tough, but if you attended classes and studied, you should remember and do fine. About a week after the technical interview the HR lady called me and gave me an offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (Seattle, WA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    One interview only. All the questions are about basic object-oriented programming. Nothing about algorithm and data structure which was a little disappointing. It's supposed to be 45 mins however it only took me 20 mins. Then you have chance to ask questions. A engineer and a hr conducted the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    First spoke to a recruiter by email for quite a while working out paperwork, etc. before even speaking on the phone for an interview. Skyped with a recruiter and then had a phone interview with a developer. There was no coding whatsoever, just general conceptual and experience based questions. They seemed to have a considerable emphasis on GPA over anything else.
