    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Someone from TCS Canada called after reviewing my resume in Monster. They were no so polite and instead of asking for the time for interview, they mentioned they'd like to interview the same day in the noon. The interview went on fine. It was very unprofessional and looked like they were faking the interview process. In the end, they mentioned I have done well and they would decide on the offer, but never got back since then. Another friend of mine, had a very similar experience and he mentioned that it is common for them to do such things just to get LMO approved for their employees in India. A mockery of Canadian LMO system.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied by emailing a campus recruitment inbox. The email went out in July, and I received a reply in early September for a phone interview 2 weeks later.

    Phone interview was straight forward - basic behavioural questions, description of the ILP Program (their new graduate position). If there were technical questions, they were simple in nature as I certainly remember nothing of note. I remember the phone call was short - ~20 minutes in length. Campus recruitment runs from Sept-Oct; I was invited at the end of October for an onsite in Toronto in mid November.

    The onsite was one panel interview, 1 hour long. Basic technical questions were asked, mainly regarding OOP and Java. My background is in C, so I was asked to compare and contrast key concepts (e.g. memory allocation, data structures) between how they operate in C and Java. There were a couple questions regarding projects on my resume, as well as 2 formal problems. I received a verbal offer 3 days later, and a written offer the following week.

    If selected you do have to complete a fairly (in my opinion) stupid information form about yourself - education, hobbies, etc., stuff you would find in Taleo/Brassring applications online. Note that the training for the ILP program is made more difficult this year (4 weeks in length still), with more emphasis on advanced Java concepts as well as the inclusion of front-end web technologies (HTML/CSS/JS).

    Overall, drawn out process but extremely simple.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. Say I wanted to print an equilateral triangle of asterisks at the center of a monitor (row 1: *; row 2: * *; row 3: * * *; etc.), with the asterisks evenly spaced out. Describe the process/write pseudocode/code that would implement this logic.
      2. A variant of weighing objects on a scale, where one object is heavier than the rest. What is the minimum number of weightings that must be performed in order to find the heavier object?

    Reasons for Declining

    Declined as I had already accepted another offer. The offer is standard/slightly below for junior level roles in Toronto, with (arguably) subpar benefits/vacation.
