Tata Consultancy Services Interview Experience - Nashik March 02 2016
I am from K. K. Wagh College of Engineering, Nashik. I attended TCS off campus test at Sapkal COE, Nashik on 2nd march 2016.
First of all, fill the application form very properly because many of my friends didn't receive their hall ticket due to improper filling of form.
Test pattern for TCS:
1. Email writing (10 minutes):
I got the topic something like some editor has written an article on intolerance in a newspaper and I am impressed with the article. So write an email to appreciate him for the article.
They give some keywords that must be included in our email. One tip that write those keywords on rough page so that we did not need to scroll down and up many times to save time.
2. Aptitude test (80 minutes):
The first tip is keep your calculator with you because TCS allows calculator and that helps you a lot.
The test is easy but there is negative marking. Out of 30 questions I solved 19 questions but I was sure that all are right. So solve only those which you are sure.
On 4th March, I got the mail that I have successfully cleared the test. I was very happy b'coz I heard that cracking TCS apti is also a big achievement and if you clear TCS apti 80% of your selection is done.
The another mail about my TCS interview schedule was received to me on 9th March. The interview was scheduled on 11th March in Shirpur Dhule around 200 kilometers from my hometown.
11th March, I reached the venue at 10 AM. Around 111 students were present.
Interview process of TCS is divided into:
I entered into the interview hall which was having 8 interviews taking separate 8 interviews. When I reached to my Interviewer.
T - Hello Akash, my name is Rajiv (giving a handshake).
(Me shaking hand with him very confidently and with smiling face)
Me - Good Afternoon sir.
T - Have a seat Akash.
Me - Thank you, sir.
T - So Prakash please tell me about yourself that is not there in your resume.
Actually, I was expecting this question but I forgot to remove the hobbies part from my resume so that I can tell about my hobbies.
But as he was busy in seeing my first page of resume and my hobbies were on 3rd page I started telling. Sir, I like watching movies, listen to the song, etc.
T - (interrupting me in between) so you like watching movies. Which movie you watched recently.
Me - Yes sir I like watching movies. Recently I watched Bajirao Mastani (bcoz I know something about that movie, so I told that 4-month-old movie)
T - So you liked the movie?
Me - Yes sir.
T - Don't you think that the movie doesn't follow the bravery of Bajirao and the love story was very highlighted?
Me - Sir its a movie and some masala are essential for the indian movie to attract people. Like this, he continued for about 20 minutes on this.
T - Akash does you know C and C++?
Me - (very confidently) Yes sir!!
T - Good. and he jumped to my project.
on the project, he interviewed me 20 minutes. They have internet access with them so they search many things on our project for asking questions.
This way ended with my technical interview.
After 2 hours I was called for MR round.
- Introduce yourself.
- About your project.
- Your strengths and weaknesses
- Why your marks goes on decreasing from 10th diploma and BE.
- I think they check your honesty and communication skills here not your knowledge.
Then many students were told to go home after this round.
Fortunately, I was called for the last interview. If you are called for the last interview then you are 90% done to get selected in Asia's largest IT company.
In HR, very calm and cool person was there.
He was just doing formality of asking questions like,
- You have to maintain 60% after your pass out
- Will you relocate to Chennai (say yes even ti seria)
Only 2 questions in HR.
This way my interview was completed.
On the 22nd March, I received mail for selection. From 111 students around 60-65 got selected. In aptitude from around 600 students, 111 got selected.
All the best and hopefully see you at TCS.:).
