TCS Interview Experience
Hi! I have been selected for TCS from our campus placements. Here is how I prepared and how the recruitment process took place.
Where did I prepare from?
I was trained by FACE in my college. They have provided me with materials for TCS preparation. About 90% of the questions were repeated from their materials. I have also prepared from their site faceprep.in and other sites like m4maths.com. These are the best sites for TCS preparation.
TCS conducted 3 rounds in our college
- Online test Round
- Technical Round + Managerial Round
- HR Round
Online test: The online test had 5 sections. Aptitude, verbal, logical, email writing, and C MCQ questions. Email writing was easy. There were hints given and we need to use each of these and write an email. C MCQ questions were very simple and repeated from FACE materials.
Technical Round + Managerial Round The students who cleared the online test were called for an interview. The interview was basically focused on testing skills the candidate is good at. I am from an ECE background. Since my favorite subjects were Computer networks and Digital logic design, I was asked questions about the same. I was also asked to write a few basic programs in C such as a Program to add two numbers, to check if a given number is a palindrome. Questions from Computer networks were as follows:
- About the different layers and their functioning
- About TCP/IP protocol
- Difference between TCP and UDP
- About subnetting
HR Round: This is the final round of the recruitment process. The questions were very simple and focused to test my communication skills. A few of them were:
- Are you a team member or a team leader
- Tell me about yourself
- How do you handle situations when two of your teammates have quarrels.
- Your hobbies
- Walk me through your resume
The interview went smoothly as the recruiters were very patient and polite.
