    Application

    I interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in July 2020.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter through LinkedIn and was asked to provide basic information (resume, transcript, desired salary). After about a week I was told I was shortlisted for an interview. I couldn't make the scheduled date, so I asked the HR representative that contacted me to reschedule to the next week.

    Not even an hour after rescheduling, I was contacted by another HR representative about the interview I had literally just rescheduled. I told them that I had just rescheduled and asked if it was a different interview - I never received a response.

    I was told that I would be able to schedule a time between 9AM and 4PM for my interview and expected to be contacted at some point throughout the week, but I never was and also never received a call the day my interview was scheduled. Overall, the company seems incredibly unorganized and unprofessional. If they contact me again at any point in the future I do not intend to follow through with the interview process.

    Interview

    Called me with no warning and immediately started asking me questions. Scheduled an interview, they never called me, so I emailed recruiter. They scheduled another interview and was 10 minutes late to that. I could barely understand them. They tried to proceed me to the next interview, but at that point I just declined as they were completely unprofessional.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in July 2020.

    Interview

    All of the interviews were conducted over call or video call due to COVID. Talent acquisition personnel reached out a few days after I applied. I had a two phone interviews on the same day about a week later. I was asked to apply on the TCS website then was contacted a week later to schedule a final HR interview. I've been waiting about a week for another call with their final decision. The entire process has taken about a month.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in July 2020.

    Interview

    The whole process was a horribly disorganized mess. I was reached out by several TCS recruiters both through LinkedIn and Handshake. After being reached out for a location that I was interested in I sent out my resume and answered some simple questions. The recruiter called me without scheduling 3 weeks later and set up an interview for me for the next day. I confirmed my availability between 1pm-3pm (when I am able to take a lunch break from work). The interview was supposed to be at 1pm, however the next day I received an email saying my interview was at 4pm. I try to email and call but nobody would get back to me, ultimately I received the call at 4:30pm. After my interview I got calls non-stop from different recruiters asking me similar questions as if they weren't communicating with each other. One of them even facetimed me....the process was very frustrating. I had said I wasn't able to relocated outside of California and every time they called they would try to push me to accept Ohio or Kentucky or places like that for even a lower salary that I had already negotiated. I completed my interview on a Thursday, got positive feedback and was told that I had received the job and was going to receive an offer by the next day or Monday. On Tuesday I emailed my recruiter to follow up and no answer. On Thursday I tried giving him a call and nothing. Finally the following Monday a different recruiter reached out asking about my H1B status. Once I clarify that I was not an H1B the conversation completely changed tone. After doing some research I found out that the company operates on exploiting H1B visa workers especially Indian ones. I declined my offer.
