TCS NQT Interview Experience
Since not being from a premium college, I got the opportunity to attend the TCS NINJA interview through the TCS National Qualifier Test for NINJA. The interview was held on 27th August, 2019. The reporting time was 9 am but by the time my turn came it was about 2:30pm. As my name was called out, I went inside the huge hall where simultaneously multiple people people interviewed altogether. There were approximately about 18 other people being interviewed each by a three-member panel. Since this was an open drive, there were no systematic procedure of asking questions.
First of all, I was asked to introduce myself briefly. The panel was friendly. Different panels had different way of questioning. Some panel preferred to ask from curriculum subjects like operating systems, data structures and databases while some others preferred to ask from mini projects. My panel asked me about my mini project and my main project.
Then came a series of technical questions related to my mentioned favorite subject, Database.
Some of the questions were about NoSql. The other questions were very basic like types of DBs, Database Design, managing DBs, Projects related to DBs etc.
It was a 15 minute interview for me while some of my friends had it for more than half an hour. There were no questions from HR or MR but technical, only for me. For some candidates, the panel asked to do coding right in front of them.
Tips: Different panel means different experience with different type of questioning and expectation. Choose favorite subject wisely. Be ready for a pile of application based questions on OS, DB and C. Knowledge of C and additionally one object oriented language is a plus point.
Hope this gives you some idea about the TCS interview. All the best to all TCS Aspirants.
