The first round was all about Technical Abilities, where they enquired about your skills in programming languages, algorithms, data base management systems etc. The second round was the HR interview round and the last one was the Management Round.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in November 2013.

Interview Details I attended the recruitment drive held in my college and it was pretty easy for me. There were two test rounds. One for language, and the other checking aptitude. Once I got through the rounds we had an interview in 3 stages, one technical, one managerial and one HR. The managerial round was a little tough but otherwise, the whole process was a piece of cake.

Routers/BRAS Testing Interview

Routers/BRAS Testing

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in April 2014.

Interview Details Interview was arranged by a consultancy but it turned out to be walk-in drive.

Worst interview procedures by the company which claims to be best in the world. Name-sake interviewers who knows little and pretends to know large. And the manager interview round they seems like they know everything like they are the king of the world but worst or worst. HR's are the worst - they think that cost-cutting in salary negotiation would improve their salary but they end up loosing the talented resources.

People tends to opt for this company to get H1 visa after a 2years stay. But only the un-useful resources who flatter the managers end up to go abroad.

Kept my offer on hold since they couldn't afford my salary which I negotiated.

Interview Question – Basics are enough to clear.   Answer Question
