    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process of TCS included the following stages-
    1.Online verbal and analytical ability test.
    2.Interview: Technical round, Management round and HR round.

    The online test is conducted and the results are announced in the evening. In case you clear the test then you are called for interview the next day.The interview day is a long day so take a good night's sleep and have a nice breakfast.
    My day started at 9 am. You have to wait till your number is called out. I had to wait for 4 hours before my turn came. The whole waiting process makes the interview challenging as the you start feeling tired by that time. After you clear the technical interview. Then you have to wait for the management round. In the management round, they try to build stress on you by criticizing you in-case you answer anything incorrectly. The trick is to be calm and know that it is something they are doing this intentionally! Now, if you get through the MR round, then you are called for the HR round in which they ask basic things like hobbies,relocation etc etc.

    Interview Details

    I had applied off campus on the tcs nextstep portal so first of all i had to give a aptitude test, it was difficult. Then we had a technical round, the questions were pretty general like check if a string is palindrome or not, sum of digits in a number etc. Then there were Mr and Hr round where they just check your aptitude and confidence and communication skills. Thats all.
