Hello friends.

TCS came to MCKV Institute of Engineering on 10th January 2011 for campus recruitment.
Here I am sharing my interview experiences with all of you.

Aptitude Test

First of all, u need to clear the aptitude test which consists of 35 questions in 80 minutes. For that u need to prepare the questions in freshers world very well.
I sat for the aptitude test around 1.10 pm. The results were declared around 3 pm. and I was selected for interview. 

Now, as far as the interview is concerned. It was a combined TECH+HR interview. There were nearly 10 panels each consisting 1 Sir/madam. They were in different rooms and around 3:55pm the coordinator told me to go to room no. 312.
Here is the questions of  interview which was asked to me:

Me : May I come in Sir.
Interviewer : ya sure.
Me : Thank you sir.
Interviewer : (while watching my form) So, Pritam. how's the day going?
Me : It's a fine day sir. But I'm a bit tensed.
Interviewer : why so?
Me : It's my life's first interview sir.
Interviewer : (smiling) Do you need some water? offering me a bottle of water)
Me : Yes sir...Thank you.
Interviewer : Feeling better now.
Me : Yes sir, thanks again.
Interviewer : Fine now Pritam! Tell me something about yourself.
Me : Told. (Please be prepared for this, this is your chance to impress the interviewer at the very beginning of the interview). I gave him my introduction, citing my strong points & I ended my introduction with a question : "Is there anything else you want to know about me sir??"..
Interviewer : No Pritam , That's fine. Do you know binary tree? what is it?
Me : Told.
Interviewer : Good. What is binary search? what is its time complexity?
Me : Told. (I think he liked my answer)
Interviewer : Ok. Do you know about linked lists?
Me : Yes sir.
Interviewer : What are the differences between link list and array?
Me : I told about memory allocations .etc
Interviewer : Write a code for insertion at any position in singly linked list.
Me : Sir, should i write the whole code or just the logic will do?
Interviewer : Ok, explain the logic.
Me : told.
Interviewer : Do you know DBMS? what is the difference between DBMS and RDBMS?
Me : Answered.
Interviewer : What is normalization? Explain the normal forms.
Me : Sir, I can't explain it upto BCNF. I don't know 4th and 5th normal forms very well.
Interviewer : Ok, do it.
Me : I answered with an example. The example i had given was a poor example (i gave a,b,c,d as column names) as I forgot the example i prepared, so be prepared with a real world example.
Interviewer : Fine. Do you know C?
Me : Yes sir.
Interviewer: Write a program to print

Me : Yes sir.
Interviewer : What r the types of polymorphism in java?
Me : I told with examples i prepared from Herbert Schildt.
Interviewer : Ok. Why do you want to join TCS?
Me : I told about the stature of the company, how i can make myself & the company grow in a mutual environment...also told about various awards TCS got, great feedback from my senior who r TCS employee. also told about N Chandrashekharan, who joined TCS as trainee like us & now is the CEO.
Interviewer : (Impressed) Ok Pritam, that's all i need to know. (Smiling) Do you have any question?
Me : Yes Sir. I was going through the TCS website yesterday and the first thing that I saw was Global Network Delivery Model. I am very eager to know what is it?
Interviewer : It's a vast topic Pritam. But to be precise. (then he explained the basic idea of GNDM)
Me : Thank you sir. It's a pleasure to talk with you sir.
Interviewer : Same here Pritam. (Than he willingly brought his hand forward to shake my hand)
Me : Shook his hand with a smile in face. Then again saying thank you, i came out of the room.

My interview went for about 35 minutes. I came out around 4.30 pm. The results were declared at 8 pm...and I was selected. I was like on cloud nine. More so because almost all of my friends were selected. But, some did not get through, I was feeling bad for them. But you never know. a much bigger opportunity may be waiting for them.

So, all aspirants, prepare well, be confidant & never lose hope.
just remember one thing : You need not prepare all subjects at once. Prepare those which you are comfortable...
& then keep in mind that : "You don't have to remember everything...because no interviewer is smart enough to ask you everything".

Finally, thank I thank fresher world for helping me a lot during preparation & giving me the chance to share my experience.
solving the aptitude questions.
All The Best.
