    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services.

    Interview

    I had an on campus interview. Since my GPA was above their required minimum I went directly to the interview. There was a panel of 4 people. 3 developers and 1 from HR. They asked a few technical and a few general questions. The technical questions were very easy. They asked basic questions like for loop. The HR questions were mainly to see whether I could work in a team and whether or not I would be willing to relocate.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (Milford, OH (US)) in March 2012.

    Interview

    It was an extremely generic developer interview. If you were to Google the top 20 programming interview questions you would see what they ask. It felt very scripted and it didn't come off to me that they actually cared about my technical abilities. There was no programming test or challenege, and as I later found out from accepting the job and working there, the bar for entry is extremely low. There were many, developers, who were an insult to the feild, they couldn't even write a basic for loop, even if you hand fed them instructions on how to do it. Don't get me wrong there are plenty good developers there, but the bad outnumber the good by a lot.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (Cincinnati, OH (US)) in September 2010.

    Interview

    They called me up a few times, asked me some excessively simple questions and made me an offer. At one point one of the guys who was supposed to call me just plain didn't. I should have known something was up because of how excessively easy the interview was, and management not calling me back after asking for the call soon became the norm.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (East Lansing, MI (US)) in September 2018.

    Interview

    The interview was limited to exclusively technical questions, there were no behavioral questions. Technical questions ranged from database optimization/abstraction, C/C++ programming, and some low level embedded development. Overall the interview felt extremely impersonal due to the fact that technical questions were just asked as quickly as possible.
