TCS SOFTWARE ENGINEER interview

AnonymousFresherSelected
Application
I was interviewed on-campus for SOFTWARE ENGINEER role at TCS
Interview Process
Resume Shortlist Test Technical Interview HR Interview
Round 1

Resume Shortlist

Interview Experience
The resume was as per the norms of our institute’s placement office. One should mention only relevant points in the resume because if they ask you something from the resume and you are unable to answer then they will reject you bluntly.
Round 2

Test

Interview Experience
In the written test the questions asked were mainly aptitude based. The company had sent us some sample question papers before the written test. The questions in the test appeared from those sample papers only. Most of the questions were tricky – questions were framed in a very lengthy manner and the answers or the data required to solve the question was hidden in the last few lines. Many students wasted their time analysing such questions completely. Out of the 80 odd students who appeared for the test only 11 qualified for the next round.
Round 3

Technical Interview

Interview Experience
In the technical interview he asked me whether I knew programming, I replied in the negative. He asked me to suggest an algorithm to a problem. The problem was based on swapping of numbers. At first I gave a very bland reply. The interviewer wasn’t convinced by my reply and gave me another opportunity to explain me the process. This time I managed to answer appropriately. The interviewer then enquired about my internship and my projects.
Round 4

HR Interview

Interview Experience
The HR interview was taken by some top company official. He asked me to narrate any challenging incident in my life that I had to struggle through to emerge out of it. One important thing to note here is that your CGPA would speak for you – if you have a good CGPA half the battle is won.
Motivation for applying
TCS recruits a large number of students from various colleges across the country. Knowing this fact beforehand I was not much interested in joining the company. I appeared for its process as a last resort. The company had organized a pre-placement talk. I attended the talk and before appearing for the first round I went through the brochure that was given out during the pre-placement talk.



You do not require any specific information regarding the company to ace the interviews or any questionnaire.

TCS apti test is a challenging one. Not demoralizing, but yes to complete the questions in given time is a bit tough job. Don't worry, tips to crack this is quite interesting. TIP 2 is very very important.
Interview Tips
1. Before the actual test, just go through the mock test of tcs available on the website(I don't remember the actual one)
2. Given a chance to select which batch you want to b in for the test, always get into last batch or atleast the penultimate one. The questions in each batch was repeating which gave advantage for last batch students. So , leave ur policy of giving honest exam n be wise to choose the decision.:P

Be confident and radiant. They will check how much you've had to wait and how that has affected you. Don't lose hope. And don't give textbook answers to questions like strengths and weaknesses. Being frank really helps.

Interview Process
Test Other Interview
Round 1

Test

Interview Experience
We had our written test on the 18th of November and I was exempted from the Analytical Ability round as I was one of the academic toppers. I had only VA round where I was asked to write and email about grandfather’s illness. It was very easy and the constraint was, to write a minimum of 50 words. I ended it up with 77 words. We got our results after a week(25th Nov) and around 500+ students attempted the exam out of which 178 cleared the written.
Round 2

Other Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Tell me about yourself.
  • Question 2: What is your mother?
  • Question 3: What is your father?
  • Question 4: Any plans for higher studies?
Interview Experience
We had our PIs on 27th and 28th of November and I had my PI on 28th. Some panels had both TR and HR simultaneously and some had two different rounds. I was in Panel 5 where I had to face two rounds. First was the TR, where there were 3 members and then HR with just one member.

I was called in the evening around 4:00pm and I entered and wished them and I gave my résumé and I was offered to sit. They asked my name. Then I told about my academic details and the reason for me to choose IT as my stream (again they got impressed by my reason). Then I started to say about my projects , then I was stopped and I was asked about the idea of the project and everything. I started explaining about my project (cause I was waiting for that moment), my team and the reason to do the project, who gave the requirements and how we started and all. I took some screen shots of my project (thanks to Ritwick for the suggestion) and I asked whether I could show them for which they accepted. Then I started to explain my project with my screen shots and they really got impressed. They asked whether my 2 projects are being implemented or not, for which I answered “one of that is being implemented”. They wanted to see it, but the unfortunate thing was, our college’s CSE department’s server was put down due to which I was unable to show(cause the project is an Intranet portal). Then at last I was asked a few questions about my project’s team, how did we share our work etcetera.

After 5 minutes I was called for HR and the funniest part is, I was asked a couple of Technical questions in the HR
I was called and she offered me to take a seat. She asked my name and asked, what is a NULL pointer and what is hashing. I answered them and then again regular questions . What is your mother? What is your father? Any siblings? I told about my sister who woks with the TCSL. She asked a couple of questions about her by opening her profile (Is she in her project or not? when did she join? which college?etcetera )
Then she saw my résumé and asked me about my passion and about my percentage in 10th (I got 69.2 in 10th and 81 in BTECH). I explained the reason then I was asked, Any plans for higher studies? Relocatable? and then If you are into the TCSL Hyderabad, then where would your mother stay? Then, what did your sister suggest for this Interview? about my CET rank and that’s it. I was asked to leave!!
General Tips
If you have project and you are pretty confident about it, then try to pull your discussion towards it. Then you can handle your PI.
