Tata Consultancy Services - Hyderabad, September 17, 2012
I am pursuing B.Tech 4th year from jntu Hyderabad(university), mechanical.
TCS came to our college and took 202 students from various branches all over.
as per my experience interview I definitely say that getting into TCS depends totally on luck.
It started on 15th...had small interaction session with TCS where we were announced that there was no written exam for people having 75% and above..
and also for students who stand amongst top five in their class
On 16th there was written exam for those who were having written. TCS written exam this year was quiet stuff to say..around 460 students appeared and only 113 of them were short listed...cut off was around 17 marks (just guess)
Most of them were eliminated in written only.
On 17th all of those selected candidates had interviews..
1st students without written were interviewed...in our college there were around approx 150-160 people with no written
we were told that all interviews would be done on 17th only...which did not happen because of the crowd.
So people with written exam were interviewed on 18th..BUT INTERVIEWS WERE NOT DONE.
So 19th was holiday...and interviews continued on 20th.. also..
21st results were declared at 2.pm
TCS short lists students after TR&MR...i.e we need to clear this round before going for HR
ass far to my knowledge TCS selects students on spot.
2 interviews were there- TR&MR, HR
In TR&MR 2 people were there...
All my questions asked were from "c" and fav subject and resume- ppts etc
SEARCHING, SORTING DEFINITIONS ETC.
ARRAYS FUNCTIONS BASICS.
SOME SIMPLE PROGRAMS HE ASKED ME TO WRITE WHAT I KNOW...LIKE PATTERNS,USING ARRAYS.
AND OTHER QUESTIONS REGARDING MY FAV SUBJECT.
AND MR ASKED HOW WOULD I SELL PIPES TO CUSTOMER?...LIKE HOW WOUDL I CONVINCE N ALL-told.
Asked why it from mechanical...I told that I dint know anything before I joined my course...that what mech was,,,what cse is n all..(big blunder I said like that) .for this
So he told me..that I should have done some research before joining because after all Its my life matter and 4 yrs of my study...so I convinced him by saying some blah blah
I answered all the questions...and
My tr&mr(combined) were done in 20min..while others had interview for 40-45min
I was very much worried for that reason...
After 1hr I was informed that I was selected in tr and was asked to go for hr..
During my HR..
HR looked very simple and was very good to me..
He asked my name etc..saw my resume and TCS application...
Asked about my acads,,..like were etc..
And why TCS...what expectations I have from TCS.
And why from it being mechanical engineer- I told I was very much interested in software blah blah etc.
How would I react towards my team mate who doesn't show interest in given work
New trends in it- I know only the name...so I told cloud computing...he explained me what it was example regarding my interest in software..i learnt adobe Photoshop...so told about it..
Later asked me about bond...relocation..future studies..etc
And he dint ask anything but I only wantedly told my interests works..etc etc
He was very much impressed with that,,..
And finally my hr was done..he got up gave my a good handshake,,,with a big smiles on his face and on mine too..:)
JUST BE COOL...IF U DON'T KNOW WHAT HE ASKED SAY NO...NO PROBLEM..
No problem if u even get tensed TCS people will definitely cool u down...:):)
So sweet they are,,..
21st results were announced and 202 were selected from around 260-280.
They generally don't eliminated in interview rounds..i.e Where luck depends.
