Tata Consultancy Services - K.L. University, Vijayawada, September 27, 2012
1. Written Exam,
2. Technical round,
3. Managerial round,
4. HR Round.
However there is a concession that whose ever percentage is above 75 (CGPA-8.25), are exempted from written exam. As mine is above cutoff I was sent to TR directly. So I will try to share you my interview experience.
There were about 300 students who were directly eligible to TR. There was no PPT in our college as it was done months back. About 15 panels conducted the interview process. I was called within an hour to the interview. I was in fourth panel. Interestingly there were 4 members before me. I calculated the time for each student when they entered the room, it was about 25 mins each. By the time my name was called it was lunch for them. So I was asked to take lunch and then come. Meanwhile a mam who is managing the process told me to prepare carefully, as the interviewer is having 19 years of experience in TCS. He is very strict. SO my fears increased max level.
Me: May I com in sir.
INT: Cme in.(There were 2 members in the panel).Are u Sree?
Me: yes sir, Gud afternun mam,gud after nun sir. ( In tense moment I lost my control and tend to sit in chair before they asked to).
INT: No problem you can hav ur seat.
Me: Thank U sir.
INT: Had ur lunch?
Me: No mam. After this i would.
INT: No problem u can hav ur lunch and come. We will be waiting.

At around 7'O clock I was called for HR. ( In some panels TR and MR are done simulataneously, mine is one of them)

Me: Yes sir...
HR: Can u work anywhere?
Me: yes sir.
HR: GO, U can leave.
Results were announced on 27th afternoon and I was happy as my name was in the list... My HR interview was a stress interview. Interviewer almost hammered me, but I kept cool, and was answering him politely. At last while leaving the room I simply stood there a moment and said thanku with smiling face. Many of my friends faced same kind of stress interview in HR. HR round was very tough. many were eliminated there.
All the best friends....!
