Team Lead/Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Bangalore (India)

I applied in-person and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in October 2010.

Interview Details I was referred for a position by a TCS employee. He submitted a resume and I ot an interview call in next two days. Instead of HR contacting me , I started directly with the technical round. The interview was for almost an hour. More or less I was asked about my previous experience and how would I use it to bring things in place in the current project. It was a management post so more and more questions were about how to manage the team and work .
Later had a one on one with The HR person.

Interview Question – None of the question was difficult or unepeced   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiation was very straight forward. I told them my expectation. My prior experience was in USA so got a good hike as per my expectation .
