TCS Assistant System Engineer interview

I was interviewed on-campus at JNEC for Assistant System Engineer role at TCS
Interview Process
HR Interview
Round 1

HR Interview

Interview Experience
Many of you might get shocked by this but my first and last round of TCS selection process was HR round. I was qualified for direct HR round as I had cracked the 1st round of TCS coding competition Codevita'15. I always knew that I would get an aptitude test exemption because of this but never had thought that this competition would prove to be so beneficial for my future. Waiting for my turn from 8:00 am in morning, I was finally called at around 9:00 pm in evening. I was nervous as this was my first interview ever for any company and I knew as this was the first and last round, they would ask me everything which they couldn't ask me in Technical and Management round, so I was fully prepared for that. After going inside, the only question they asked me was to explain me the code which I had submitted in the Codevita'15 competition just to confirm whether I had did it myself and there was no plagiarism. Once I explained the code, 99% of my job was done. After that they told me that this was just a formality and that I was placed. That moment for me was priceless. I was stunned and shocked because that interview lasted for just like 10-12 minutes. They also told me that I have the privilege to select the domain in which I wish to work and also I would be given the preference to select the job location. One competition and I was through. There cannot be any feeling better than this.
Interview Tips
Only 2 students (including me) from our college got placed in TCS in similar manner, rest all had to go through all the rounds in the selection process. As far as TCS is concerned, 75% of your job is done, if you're through with the aptitude test. More than 50% of your competitors get eliminated in this test. Then for the Technical, you should prepare core subjects of your academics, like for a Computer Science engineer like me, I am expected to know basics of C,C++,C#, Web technologies, Database, Operating System etc. So go prepared with basics of your core subjects and you're through. For HR round you are expected to know the background or history of the company for which you are applying. Never try to bluff the HR with your answers because that way, you'll get eliminated. Also try to be in touch with the competitions of TCS and be a part of them. They are a good value addition to your knowledge.

TCS Java developer interview

185 views
AnonymousExperiencedSelected
Interview Process
Technical Interview Technical + HR Interview HR Interview
Round 1

Technical Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Basic Java questions, OOPs questions, Questions on abstract, Inteface classes, Spring questions, Hibernate questions, Tomcat server questions.
Interview Experience
Interview was for 30 minutes duration. They have started with basic concepts like Abstract, Interface etc. Then they moved to core java. Some basic question on core java related to Exceptions, try-catch-finally blocks. Spring MVC basic questions, bean mapping questions. use of tomcat server in eclipse.
Interview Tips
I was lucky at that day.
Interview was more likely of fresher level. I was first in the interview process, interviewer were not ready, so they directly asked few questions to me.
Level of interview was not up to the mark, I prepared for tougher interview, gone thru 500+ questions on core java, spring, hibernate, exceptions and try catch.
0-3 years in java is equivalent to fresher. But you have to be prepared for worst if you really wanted the job.
Before going to the interview, Do hands-on.

How much I am open up to new technologies.
Where i see myself after 5 years.
What are my career aspirations.
How much flexible I am with shifts and work loads.
Interview Tips
Its simple round, You have to be sure why you want this job. give them a very valid reason of your own. Don't copy anybody else's answer. Be confident. If it is on call, speak clearly, maintain pace and voice. They may throw situations and puzzles. be calm, use your mind. Its fine if you don't know about anything.

TCS N/A interview

7.5k views
Ayan DasguptaFresherSelected
Application
I was interviewed on-campus at RCC Institute of Information Technology for N/A role at TCS
Interview Process
Test HR Interview
Round 1

Test

Interview Experience
The Verbal section requires once to compose an email with a minimum of 50 words (in some cases it may be 70) with a list of phrases mentioned. My topic was the one regarding ‘seeking permission to carry a camera to office premises’, which is already posted on this helpful website. So you see TCS is repetitive with their question set. The important thing to note here would be the names of the recipient and the sender. I would suggest all to type out the salutation and signing off initially (make double sure you put the names correct) and fill in the body after that. Also the phrases need not necessarily appear in your body in the same order as in the question. Try not exceeding 100 words, an optimal measure ranges from 70-85. Needless to say, spelling and grammatical errors should not feature in your mail at all.
And yes, all this in 10 minutes.

For the Analytical round, practice as much as possible from m4maths.com, the list of commonly asked TCS quant questions. Some of my friends reported that they found as many as 22 questions common out of the 30 they had to answer, so one can imagine the repetitive nature of their question sets. The cut-off varies depending upon the reputation of your institute, but I feel you need a minimum of 70% attempt to have your examination considered by the computer.
Round 2

HR Interview

Interview Experience
I had just a single interview round, split into two sections.

First, the Technical part. The interviewer (hardly 3-5 years elder to me) asked me to explain any project I did. I made sure whether he meant the Final Year Project or the Summer Training. He didn’t specify, and so I went on with the latter (considering the FYP is just in the Planning stage). He asked a few questions on it (it’s a site built using PHP & MySQL). What they check is whether you have put in some effort on it or just let your team mates do it. I came up with satisfactory answers. Then he grilled me upon DBMS. Please not that people in the industry deal with DBMS and queries for the major part of their time. So it’s that one subject that they have the best grasp on. Be prepared on this subject. I wasn’t even asked to choose my favorite subject, straight bombardment of DBMS questions.

Some of the questions were, What is an instance of a DBMS? What does one mean by DDL, DML? Then he put up a situation wherein he has a large populated DB and wishes to get rid of the data. What should he do. I said truncate the DB. Then he asked me the difference between the two, i.e. Truncate and Delete. I gave him the answer. He grilled me further asking the transaction level difference (Committing, Logging and all). I gave him the exact opposite to the actual difference, but confessed upon realization. He smiled.

The technical questions were followed by the HR ones. The technical interviewer yielded his seat to a lady and she flipped through my CV. I had mentioned Sports as my hobby, and so was asked to draw comparison between sports and Work-life. I spoke on Team-effort and that really impressed her. Then she briefed me about the Service Agreement Rules and inquired if I had any problems relocating considering me being the lone child of my parents (again a thorough CV scrutiny), to which I convinced her about my flexibility. She then took my WBJEE rank before ending the session.

Skills Tested

Skill Tips
Please be prepared to answer questions on your FYP and Trainings.<br /> Study the basics really well. Have the concepts ingrained in you head. They check your concepts, not how much you can cram up. Usually simple questions are asked. If you’re asked tough questions, don’t panic. Try answering the with some logic, (like the Truncate v/s Delete question in my case). Even if you answer it incorrectly but backed by some logic, they’ll appreciate it.<br /> <br /> Retain your composure. And be involved in the system of preparation. It can’t happen in one week. Devoting a few hours every week for months is what I would suggest, only peak at the right time. And just BELIEVE in your abilities. That’s the main artillery on your side.
