My Experience 

After cracking Codevita, in which I solved three problems. I got a mail from TCS to come for an interview at their Gitanjali Park offices,Kolkata.I reached there at 8 AM, as per instructions. We were made to get our documents verified. The whole deal took 2 hours.


Then the waiting began. One by one names would be called and that person would have to go in the interview room for his/her interview. To this day I wonder why the names did not follow any order, alphabetic or otherwise.

I got my turn at around 5:30 PM, I was called in the small office. There were 3 people on the panel, 2 guys and one lady. I believe the lady was from the HR department.

I sat down and one of the interviewers asked if I have had lunch. I told him I had biscuits if those counted as lunch.

1st Problem

The first question that they asked was to make a pattern. I think it was like this:

0
1 2
3 4 5
6 7 8 9

They gave me a pen and a white paper to solve it. I asked if I could solve it using Python, to which they answered that no one knew Python in the panel.

I solved it using C. My handwriting was a bit rough so they told me to make it clearer, and I did.

After that, they asked if I could write an algorithm to remove duplicates from a list of digits. I said we could do it in one line in Python. They started laughing and said they did not want to my knowledge regarding a language, but with algorithms.

I did the question again using C, by implementing a Hashmap through arrays.They told me to explain the code, and I did.


After that, they took a glance at my CV, asked about my interests to which I mentioned Machine Learning. They asked me the difference between ML and BI. I did not know what BI was, but improvised a bit and answered.


Then the HR lady asked me if I was comfortable with odd hours or relocations, I answered in affirmative.

The interview ended after that. A month later I got to know that I got the Job Role of Ninja at TCS.

 

VERDICT : SELECTED
