    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (Naperville, IL (US)) in July 2019.

    Interview

    Applied through LinkedIn, a recruiter called me two days later. They were interviewing the Saturday of the same week, so I was scheduled to go in between 10:30am-11:00am. There was already a crowd of candidates there, and they had us waiting in a conference room while they called us by name at a time to be interviewed. It seemed very unorganized. They had candidates come in at different times between 9am and 2pm. I was not even called until around 11:30am. Once I was called, I was interviewed by two (what I assumed to be) engineers. They asked me about my resume and background, and would ask questions based on what I talked about. There were some questions I could not understand and did not know how to answer, but it wasn't due to their heavy accents. Maybe it was their poor choice of words or my lack of knowledge. Either way, they seemed to have been irritated and tired of the continuous interviewing, and stopped the interview after I wasn't understanding one of their questions. They got back to me that coming Monday with their response.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (Seattle, WA (US)) in September 2018.

    Interview

    The interview was horrible. I went to the job fair and was able to interview the next day. The person interviewing me was apparently the head or leader of the department in Redmond. He asked a few questions about my resume and gave me a math problem to solve. I thought everything went well, I answered everything correctly and solved the math problem that he assigned. I then get an email saying that they went with someone else. I went to the job fair again to try to interview one more time and the same guy that interviewed me was there and would not take my resume again for a second chance. This was around 8 months after the previous interview. These people are horrible, I never want to deal with these people again.

    Interview

    Hiring process was a complete joke. The person requesting my information barely spoke English and was recruiting for US (which is not to say I’m bad at all with accents but this was literally someone that was not even trying). Above from that, I sent my information that I would assume the person needed but never got an email response or call at all for supposed next email steps that were “going” to be “provided”. I can imagine HR system being a complete joke as well.

    We went over most of my resume and questioned me on what was on it. Freshen up on your resume and you should be fine with the interview and it should go smoothly.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services.

    Interview

    Straightforward, friendly and simple. They sat me down and starting with some basic personal questions like what am I looking for in regards to the ideal job, what technologies I am interested and some basic personal questions.

     They then proceeded with the technical interview was a sort of shot gun approach. They ask a quick questions and you answer with the simplest response. They then proceed with questions based on your top 3 technical skills and finally some surface level questions. It took about an hour, but was not too difficult. If you did not know an answer to a questions, they were very open and supportive on explaining the answer. A very helpful group of people.
