TCS Interview Experience - 17.12.2015
I am from Dream Institute Of Technology, Kolkata. I am here sharing my interview experience with you.
I first applied for the TCS Off Campus Recruitment Drive from Kolkata and I had my online aptitude test on 2nd Dec. The test was basically consisting of maths and one email typing.
In maths 30 qs will be asked out of which you need to attempt at least 15 correctly. Make sure that you reduce your wrong guess works as (-)ve marking is an important issue. At the same, time management is what that plays a significant role.
I wrote my email well without committing any grammatical mistake. Min. 50 words are to be written in 10 min. And all the keywords are to be used.
After that the results were declared within a week or so and they called for the interview on 17th. I could not prepare well but tried my level best to do a little more.
I had to go to their biggest campus in Kolkata, reporting at 10:45 am. After so many formalities I got inside.
The technical round was quite easy. At the room, there was a panel of 2. All the basic questions were asked from C (as I mentioned it in my CV), like string, pointer, array, function, malloc - calloc, free, pre processor directive, header file... Then they wanted to verify my original mark sheets.
I could not answer all the technical questions correctly but made an attempt. They might see your approach or for others they see your confidence level, perception level etc..
Apart from this, I had to answer certain non technical topics, like:
Why engineering? Why Electronics? Why IT? Why TCS?
What do you know about this company?
These were all..
Though apparently the round appeared to be easy but there was a huge screening from this. Elimination was severe. Out of 800 candidates hardly 250 cleared that round.
I could clear it by luck. Finally I went for the 2nd round (HR). Mainly non technical questions. Like,
Introduce yourself. (Be very specific).
Why B.Tech? Why ECE? Why Software? Why TCS?
Strong points & weak points (He wanted an answer from my heart truly).
Extra curricular activities.
Achievements & awards.
Are you the only child of your parents?
Is your family liberal? (Say YES).
Any supplementary? Any Back logs? Any year gaps? (Be honest).
In which exam you scored the least and why? (Don't tell anything personal).
Are you flexible in shifts? (say YES).
Are you flexible in relocation? (say YES).
Are you flexible in working at extended hours? (say YES).
Do you need any higher study? M.Tech/ M.SC/ MBA (ALWAYS SAY "NO").
At last he asked me to write a program on Fibonacci Series...
Asked whether I had any question for him or not.
As I had nothing to know so I didn't inquire him back, but only replied that, " Sir, that is all, I had a very nice experience with you "
He smiled, I also did the same.
This is the round where your communication skills will be judged.
So please don't be silent. Speak something but off course logically..
We had to leave for the day. After 7 days, they confirmed the job & congratulated me through offer letter.
So guys, stay cool, be brave, go ahead. But prepare at least one programming language prior to interview & arrange your mind accordingly.
All the best for your future and for the big...... :) :).
