This is Ashutosh Kumar Singh (B.Tech 3rd year CS). TCS conducted a recruitment Drive in my college (V.I.E.T, Ghzbd) on 9th March 2008 (for three days). I cleared the written exam (online). For written exam, just go through the previous papers & Barron's 12 Edition. This will be sufficient. But, b careful not to press d 'Exit' button. It'll lock ur answers.
Interview was a three round process.
• Technical Round
• HR Round
• Mangerial Round
Firstly, I entered the room for the technical interview .
I said "May I come in Sir".
He said "Come in" .
I said "Good Morning" to both the interviewers (actually 1 was male & another female).
I said "May I sit" They said "Sure" .
The first question for me is "Tell me about yourself" .
Then they immediately shifted there focus to technical part. They read (in my CV) about my first Project.
He asked "Wht's platform for dis".
I said "Java Sir" .
He said "You know Java" .
I said "only Core Java" .
He asked "What is Multithreaded ?". Told. (Upto 5 mins he asked questions related to Multithreading, I gave answer to all questions).
He asked "Wht is Inheritance ?". Told.
He asked "Is dere any concept of Multiple Inheritance ?" .
I said "No".
He asked "Then How can we achieve Multiple Inheritance ?".
I said "We can use Interfaces". He asked few questions on Interfaces.
He asked about RDBMS. (My favourite ). I told everything about RDBMS.
He asked "Wht is DDL & DML ?".
They both asked a lot questions on RDBMS & answered all of them.
Finally the lady questioned "Do u know JDBC ?"
I said "Yes ! I used JDBC in my project" .
Then She said "Can u just write the code to connect Java with any Database ?".
I wrote the whole code for connection. And then I came out of the room.
After 5 mins or so, I got a call for Hr interview.
I entered the room "May I come in MAM ?". There were two sweet females.
I said "Good morning Mam" .
They said "Good morning" .
They said "Tell me about yourself which is not mentioned in ur CV".
I said "My hobbies r .., My strengths are .., My weakness are .." . In d weakness section I said "Due to dedicated work my social Life gets affected".
She said "Ashutosh ! U r very smart" . She repeated this sentence thrice.
But I repeatedly said "Mam whether u believe it or not it's a fact". I even mentioned some of my instances where I actually suffered due to work.
She said "Why TCS ?". Told.
She said "If we place u somewhere like Trivandaram ?"
I said "No problem ! Mam".
She told me about the Bond of Rs. 50000, that if I'll leave TCS b4 2 years, then I'll have to pay this much of amount. "R u comfortable with the amount ?". I said "I'll not leave TCS for my whole life. So, I don't have to worry about this amount"
After few more questions, I got out of the room.
MR round (Next Day):
I entered the room saying "May I come in Sir". This time there was only 1 single guy. He seems to b a very experienced man.
He said "Come in" .
He said "Tell me about yourself, Explain both ur projects (2). This time only u'll speak & I'll listen" .
I started off & ended up explaining my both two projects .
He asked few questions on my project (especially from the second project).
Then he asked me some general questions. At last he asked me to solve 1 puzzle "There r 9 points & I was supposed to join dese points with only 4 lines".
I did this.
Then he again gave another puzzle, which was a bit tough for me. I wasn't able to solve dis 1 .
It's like if u dont answer or able to crack dese baffles, u dont need to b worry, coz dese things hardly matters. But, If u can solve dem, it'll b an added advantage for u. Otherwise, I think dat only d Technical interview is important.
It's like 70% - Tech interview, 20% - Hr Interview & 10 % - Mr Interview.
After 3-4 long hours results were announced & My name was there. I was very happy..
