This article or interview experience is kindly provided by my student Mr. Savpril Salwan who got recently placed in this reputed company TCS. I am really thankful to him.
Interviews started at around 3 pm and I was quite nervous initially because one of the interviewer was quite strict sort of and was taking about an hour for each candidate.
My turn came at around 7:30 pm and the process is as follows:
Me: may I come in sir?
Int: yes please
Me: good evening sir
Int: good evening, please have a seat.
Me: thank you
Int: so how are you feeling?
Me: sir, I am bit nervous. Actually I am in an interview for the very first time (even though I had attended 2 times before this).
Int: want to have anything?? Juice?
Me: no, thank you sir
Int: then please have the cake
Me: thank you again sir
Int: arey sharmao mat yaar, le lo

Int: so shall we start the process?
