TCS Ninja Recruitment Process for Freshers :
Firstly i would like to say that i qualified TCS Code vita 2018 round 1 with an AIR 691 and got a call for interview for TCS NINJA post(primarily).But sadly i got rejected .So TCS NQT was my last chance to get into TCS .I qualified NQT with a very good score (i suppose as marks were not declared).SO i got a call for interview held on Sept 15 at TCS Gitanjali Park , Kolkata at 5–6 pm .As i was familiar with the process after the Code vita interview so i really didn’t have any problem with anything . Firstly we entered the premises (All the govt college students were called on that time slot) and were instructed by a mam to Arrange our documents which consisted of our TCS application form , CV and the Declaration .After that they separated the CS/IT and non- CS/IT branches and took them to different Interview Rooms .
We (CS /IT people ) were waiting after submitting our documents in the hallway .So as time progressed we were called one by one and were told to sit in front of the interview rooms (There were around 30 interview rooms ) .So our CV were dispatched to different rooms and with time we were called accordingly . My HR/TR mam called out my name and said to follow her to one of the interview rooms. There were 3 people in the interview room .(Mam , Sir 1 and Sir 2)
As i was said to sit down ,in the meantime mam checked out my documents and said “ So you have an average of 8.9 CGPA throughout your 6 sems ? .All going well ? .Very good.”
These are the questions Mam asked me
Q1 . Why did you choose a school so far away from home ?
Ans- I gave her valid reasons of taking preparation for Joint Entrance Exam.
Q2. “ So i can see you have mentioned JSP/ Servlet in your CV .You also made a Website(project) based on this.Can you please explain me how is it different from HTML and how does it work ? .”
Ans- This question was my main reason of getting selected i think 😀 .I started to explain with Facebook.How does dynamic web pages work etc.Everything in too much detail.After an explanation of about 10 mins i stopped.Mam smiled at me and said very good (Appeared Impressed ).
Q3. DBMS related -Query to delete table data without deleting schema.Can you revert it back ? (She wanted to know the DDL one not the DML one ).
Ans- I first gave the DML query (Delete from <table name>).But she said “Can you do it any different way ? “ .I said “ Yes mam with Truncate “ .She replied “Ok good.”
Then there were other DBMS related questions as well.I am listing the questions as it will become a very long post if i keep on telling every detail.
Q. What is DCL ?
Q. Can you roll back the data deleted by Truncate query ?
Then she started asking me questions on JAVA.Those were-
Q. What is Method Overloading ?.Explain
Q. Is overriding compile time or runtime Polymorphism ?.Explain why from a compiler point of view.
Q. Is java fully OOPS ?
Q. What is Wrapper Class ?
Q. If we write static public void main (String args ) .Will it give any error ?.Explain
I answered all these questions nicely and accurately except one .So till now my TR was going amazingly . So she started asking me questions from other subjects like microprocessor and OS .
Q. What are the flags of a microprocessor ? .
Ans- I was surprised to hear the question and laughed and said “mam i am a CS student ”.Mam also laughed and replied “I am aware of that but you had these things in 2nd year “.I laughed and said “ sorry mam i don’t remember these except one- two.”.Said them and she said ok.
After that she asked me from OS(Last question of TR round).
Q. What are the 3 conditions for a Deadlock to occur.
Ans- I was totally blank and said only 1 point.Got a bit Scared.I said “mam actually i didn’t prepare this subject for today’s interview” with a smile.Mam said “OK no problem.Tell me what is a deadlock then? “.I answered and she was happy.Here ended my TR round of about 30 mins.
Next the same mam and the two sir’s started asking me some MR and HR questions like –
Q. If you are given the job in Nagaland where the people don’t like outsiders , will you go and work there ?.Why ? .Will your family allow you ?.( Sir 1)
Q. If you are hired how long are you willing to work with us ? (Mam)
Q. Are you familiar with night shifts ? .(Mam)
Q. If you are given any kind of job will you do instead of giving coding based jobs ? .Why ?.(Sir 1)
Q. What do you know about TCS history and all ? (Sir 2)
Q. (Most important question if you get selected) Do you know about the company policy and bond ? (Mam and Sir 2)
Q. “ You have seen experience certainty below TCS logo .What does that signify ?”.(Sir 2 and Mam)
Q. Where do you see yourself after 5 years (Last question of HR round by Mam) .
I answered these questions based on my personal point of view.Honest answers i mean.Got some negative comments from them too. Sir 1 asked me “Do you like cakes ?.Have some .” (Putting a packet of cake in front of me) .I didn’t have them and thanked them for offering .In the mean time Sir 1 asked where do i stay , how do i got to college etc.
The interview lasted for around 1 hour and with the last question of mam ,she asked the remaining two interviewers to ask me anything if they want .They said they were good and didn’t ask me anything .So with this mam said to leave and greeted me with a smile saying “Nice meeting you “.
Result- I got selected and received my offer letter within 20 days via email.
Verdict- So guys just don’t panic if you say something wrong which i did too.Give honest answers and try to cover all of your basics nicely and don’t mention anything in the CV which you are not comfortable with.
Best of luck guys for your upcoming interviews!!
