TCS Interview Questions, Noida, 4th Nov 2016.
It was my first interview and I was very excited for the same. I reached the office one hour before, and then waited for the H.R to come up as he asked me to wait at the cafeteria. Never the less, TCS, Noida cafeteria is huge enough to accommodate about 1000 employees for dining. After an hour the H.R came again and started to collect our TCS Application Forms and then a mail was sent regarding the Interview process as started. After 15 mins, my name was announced for technical interview. I was taken to another side of the cafeteria where to mid-senior level employees were sitting and I was asked to have a seat. The first thing after that I could hear was "Hi xyz, Had your breakfast" and I knew that my interview has started. Since was coming traveling a long distance from the morning, I replied "no sir I couldn't have". Then one of them asked me to describe yourself. I started by giving a brief introduction about myself, then the academics, family, strengths and weakness. Then they asked me show my internship report and started by asking a description about my project. I described the project, its technologies and its future prospect. Since the project was a JSP based web application, most of the questions were from networking like,
- Protocols used.
- Do you know about HTTP, SSL, TELNET? (TOLD).
- How you implement https in JSP? (TOLD).
- How do servlets work? (TOLD).
- Why did you choose JSP for this project when you could have it in a better way on PHP? (TOLD).
- Which database did you choose? (TOLD).
- Do you know the latest version of Oracle SQL server being used? (TOLD).
- Do you know about PIG, SPARK and some technologies? I had never heard about them so I politely replied "Sorry sir, I dont know"
Then they asked me any newer technology you are working on to which I replied MEAN stack and described how MEAN stack is a great way to develop web applications.
A few questions on SQL and constraints, referential integrity, and error generated while deleting a primary key when a foreign key is being assigned to another table. (TOLD).
We took a pause, and then I was asked an aptitude type puzzle question. I waited for a min and then told the answer which was correct upto best of knowledge.
- They also asked to describe, what is combination?
- Then the another guy started asked me about "What recently took place in TATA group"
Point of advice : Read a lot of newspaper and about the company,a week before going for an interview.
- What are TCS Verticals? (TOLD).
- Who is the CEO of TCS of TCS ? Who was the ex-CEO? (TOLD).
- How many companies come under TATA group. (They asked the exact number, so didn't knew.
- What are the products you use made by TATA?
I answered all of them confidently and then I was asked to wait and the interview was over.
After 15 mins, I was called for the HR interview, where I was asked about my internship experience and was told about the bond policy of HR. He also asked whether I had a backlog.
At last, he said thank you and the interview was over for the day.
After 6 days, received a mail from TCS with the offer letter. It was my first job. Me and my family were very excited and celebrated the success.
Advice to all juniors in 3rd Year: Gear up for the remote internship. It can be great way to get into TCS.
