TCS INTERVIEW - 26 MAR 2008 - DURGAPUR
I am Debanjan from NIT Durgapur. I am from Chemical Engineering department. TCS came to campus on 26th March and picked up 202/352 students. But mind you, guys... the whole process which we had to undergo during the 3 days was such we never expected. TCS probably took the toughest selection procedure in recent times. Some of the students had technical interview as long as 1 and half hours.. HR was also quite gruelling... and it was totally unpredictable.. for some of them hr was taken along with technical.. mine was 45 min hr+ tech interview... I am giving an excerpt
