    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Tata Communications (Herndon, VA (US)) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Easy peasy. I submitted my resume, and I was called in for an interview after a phone screening. I was interviewed by three or four people. Two interviews were done in a conference room. The interviews were very short, less than five minutes each. They didn't ask a lot of questions. Then there was a longer twenty or thirty minute interview in someone's office. The trouble began AFTER I accepted a job offer. HR did a great job of onboarding, but my manager? She went on vacation the day before I started and didn't tell me. It was all downhill after that....

    Negotiation

    A breeze. Got the salary I wanted. Tata offers bonuses that are very generous and better than other telecoms and tech companies I've worked for.

    Channel Development Manager Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Tata Communications (San Francisco, CA (US)) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Mine was a unique/odd experience. I interviewed first with an 'external' recruiter who thought my experience and skill set was a good fit. He knew they were looking to hire quickly and he had a very good handle on what the job was and who they were looking for. He forwarded my resume and his write-up that same day. He was surprised that he didn't hear back from them for almost 2 weeks. When he did, he found out that a corporate recruiter was now in the loop and that recruiter was in India, making the coordination of interview times difficult. Then, a week later, I heard from the recruiter in India saying that wanted to interview me. Scheduled. It went fine. Another week passed for him to schedule an interview with the hiring VP, then a week to have that interview. The interview with the VP seemed to go well EXCEPT that the job description was a 180 difference from the role I had understood it to be and had prepared to discuss. The VP said he wanted more time with me to discuss how I would execute the duties of the newly described position and that he would ask the recruiter in India to schedule it. Note: the VP is in DC and I'm in CA. I never heard back from the recruiter or the VP regarding scheduling the call. When I reached out to 'my' original recruiter, he said he would try and get an answer. When he did (a week later - now it's 6 weeks into the process) he said they had decided "not to move forward". I see that as very disrespectful: 3 interviews, including with the VP and no feedback whatsoever. My recruiter was surprised and confused by their behavior. I hope anyone hired there has a better experience with Tata than I had interviewing with them.

    Interview

    While the job interview process can be lengthy in general, being interviewed once and getting a job offer is typically a thing of the past. Today, many companies have an involved interview process starting with screening interviews, followed by in-person interviews, second interviews and even third interviews. However, in TATA, interview with phone screening followed by 1:1 is very common.

    Creative Services Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Tata Communications (Burlingame, CA (US)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I applied on the company website and heard back from the recruiter in just a few days, which is astounding; normally going in without a referral means you go into a black hole. The recruiter screened me, then the hiring manager called. After a standard phone interview where he talks about the company & position & I talk up my background, he arranges to meet me in person. After that, I met the team as a group. I was offered the job within 3 weeks of resume submission.
