    Project Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (San Antonio, TX (US)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    There were several phone interviews before one in-person interview with the client. Phone interviews were conducted by 2 recruiters from an agency. One phone interview with Tata rep was horrible, as he could barely speak English and was very hard to understand. Client conducted final interview, but the Tata rep called with the offer. Again, because of his poor English, it took me a few minutes to understand that he was offering me a job!

    Interview Questions

    • The client asked all the expected questions. I was surprised that they asked me to send work samples to the Tata rep, not them, because I was not going to be working with the Tata rep, and he worked in a different field than I do. There was no way he could have evaluated my work correctly.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Lots of back-and-forth between Tata and the recruiter, who originally told me it paid $30 an hour. After the offer, he said $22, which is when I slammed on the brakes. Suddenly he didn't remember the $30 offer, and acted like it would be hard to negotiate. I finally got them to agree to $28, but it took a couple of weeks.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in March 2015.

    Interview

    TCS interview process is very quick and energizing initially then they drop the ball on the candidate. They start with nice salary initially then start bringing the $ down as each level of interview passes. I would advise any U.S Citizen not to apply at TCS because they don't know professionalism 101.Typical Indian company with Indian mentality. Don't know how to treat candidates.

    Interview

    When I started job hunt, I was not getting any calls by applying to company websites directly. Even on linked in, dice jobs I was not getting calls for full time opportunity. My resume was picked up by one of consulting companies and they submitted my profile to TCS.
    With TCS I had very good discussion with the current managers, I was interviewed on my expertise, work experiences, challenges, reason for leaving the current employer after such a long time etc.

    Interview

    Recruitment process is very disjointed. Tata recruiters are very aggressive during the initial engagement process, but fade into oblivion One could be left hanging for months with no feedback.
