    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the job through LI. Got call from HR and subsequently the technical team called after a week. The HR was very friendly and was accomodative of my schedule for the interview and even the technical team was nice. The technical interview lasted for nearly an hour. They started with experience and exposure to work environment, project experience, technical skills and tools knowledge. Then they went into the key skills required for the project and asked specific technical questions in Java/J2EE/JDBC/Spring/Hibernate. The questions started from basic and went into advance levels like multithreading, exception handling , Garbage collection etc. They asked about unix shell scripts and JDBC connectivity, testing methodology and configuration management.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services.

    Interview Details

    Standard quick HR phone interview, followed by on Campus interview. The campus interview was with 2 other software engineers and 1 HR employee. Went through my resume, explained my relevant experiences and discussed them. Was asked about programming language experience from Co-op and school. Asked about black/white/grey-box testing.
    Then the HR employee asked me some HR questions: Conflict Resolution w/ example, how to handle and deal with criticism w/ example, how to manage tasks with high pressure and deadlines w/ example.

    No real technical interview came which was surprising.

    Senior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied for Java Senior Software Developer position.

    First HR manager checked my desired salary, notice period and other details like work status in Canada. Then book the interview time in the same time. There were three interviewers who asked me questions. First of all, they really struggled to talk in English and sometimes they don't know how to communicate their questions. I answered all the questions properly as I know how TCS interview questions would be. The questions are average and any 3 year Java candidate could answer those questions, especially candidates like me who worked in India.

    The interview went around 40-60 mins and one interviewer tipped me that I don't have web based experience (I worked only on web applications for 6yrs). Still, they mentioned that they would call me back, but never did.

    I would say TCS-Canada interviews for IT positions are nothing but a fake to fool the Canadian LMO policies. In order to bring Indian workers to Canada, they have to show that TCS couldn't find local resources in Canada.

    Let's assume if TCS hired you for a position and the payment is 60k, then they have to keep you forever by paying 60k and benefits. But on the other hand, TCS can bring Indian candidates by paying them same 60k. The real twist is, after 2 years they will send Indian candidates back to India. For TCS, paying 60k for 2 years is easy comparing life long payment to local (Canadian) candidates.

    Don't waste your time with TCS. It's my personal option and it may vary for others.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    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.
