Tata Consultancy Services - Shimoga, October 19, 2012
I applied for TCS campus drive and attended interview yesterday i.e.,on 19th of Oct...2012
I read many interview experiences in different websites and blogs...so I thought of writing one so that it would be helpful to those who are about to face interviews.
TCS placement procedure is something like this...
1st round is aptitude.
2nd round-Technical interview.
3rd round is managerial round.
and 4th is HR .
In our college TCS gave an offer that those who have above 75% aggregate,they are eligible for TR....they don't need to take apti test and luckily I was one of them.
ME: good morning sir (with smile)
TR: gm...take your seat...give me your apply form and resume..
TR: OK...tell me about yourself
ME: told...(but he completely neglected me...he was writing something...he didn't even looked at me...but guys,don't panic..they will be listening to you carefully than u think)
TR: (he searched for work sheets on his table...since there was no ppr)
ME: Sir,I have brought pprs to work...shall I take out?
TR: No need
(friends,take ppr and pen with u,,,so that interview can get to know that you have cum prepared fa the interview)
TR: Have u studied computer networks?
ME: Yes sir
TR: What's dijkstra's algorithm
TR: Write a network nd apply it
ME: Did what he said
TR: What' your project
TR: What's your approach towards project
TR: Your role in project
TR: (he wrote some piece of code and asked for output)
TR: Logic for factorial of a number
TR: OK...I am done
(friends.... interviewer may talk in a way that may irritate u,he may interrupt u in middle and even neglect you...but don't show it on your face...just keep constant smile on your face...because my tech round went something like that ...I didn't show it on my face...I kept constant expression on my face)
ME: thank u sir...(and left the room).
I waited for my MR round and the co-ordinator called my name.
ME: Gm sir (smiled)
MR: Gm (smiled too)

HR: Tell me recent 5 prime ministers of India

HR: Its OK...who is the current president of India
HR: Now he looked at me and asked who s vice president
HR: CM of Karnataka
HR: Governor of Karnataka
HR: (now he again started to write something on my apply form)do have any backlogs
ME: No sir
HR: OK, thanks.
Friends, my HR round was like quiz round..you can expect any sort of questions out there...u should b prepared for that and I thought that HR round is to check your general knowledge.
Finally results were announced at 10 PM and my name was in the list...only 60 were selected out of 300 students.
They said that...in order to b placed in TCS...u should b strong in your fundamentals and in your communication skill and u should be able to map your knowledge to real life examples and you should be able to ans situational questions.
I am a CS student...so for CS guys they can ask questions from any of the core subjects that u studied from 1st sem. so be prepared for all subjects.
Hope these information would help you.
And all the best :-).
