CTS Interview / Selection Process | AMCAT | Technical & HR Round
Name: K.V.SURESH KUMAR
Company Name: COGNIZANT TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS
Before sharing my interview experience, I would like to thank God, My Parents and especially My Friends who enhanced my strength, speech, ways to tackle this world and so on. Patience, Hardwork, Optimism and Confidence in You and in God are the major contributors than your talents, etc. for a job. I believe this post may help you atleast in some part of your interviews.
It is the unexpected opportunity and still now I did not know that on which basis I have been called for the Technical HR. I have given my AMCAT exam for HCL Technologies and I guess based on that AMCAT score,I have been received mail for the further rounds in Thoraipakkam office.

There were 3 rounds(AMCAT, Technical HR and HR). Results were mailed to me after 20 days from my HR round.
Round 1: AMCAT ONLINE TEST
This round plays a vital role for the process…There are 4 sections(computer programming,quantitative, logical and verbal)…For clearing this test, R.S.AGGARWAL BOOK is more than enough…For Computer Programming, basic knowledge in C, Database and OOPS Concepts is enough…Timing is the important cause for this round…You can go to next question only if u complete 1 question.
PART A-Computer Programming-25 Questions-25 Minutes
PART B -Quantitative Ability-25 Questions-35 Minutes
PART C -Logical Ability-24 Questions- 35 Minutes
PART D -Verbal Ability-18 Questions – 16 Minutes
Round 2: TECHNICAL HR
In this round, there will be one HR, face to face process. Only way to clear this round SPEAK SPEAK SPEAK. Be confident and maintain eye contact. As I am from ECE, the interview is great going since there are no technical questions on programming concepts but questions were asked on Electronics. It took around 25 min…God’s grace, HR was more jolly type and we were talking like friends. Let me share the conversation…

Me: All rounder…But mostly I prefer batting Sir…
HR: What is the reason for India’s poor performance in England Tests? Is Dhoni has to be blamed?
Me: Laughed and said, Definitely Dhoni should not be blamed Sir…Cricket is a team work and each player is responsible for the results…I don’t say India performed poor, because first two matches,we were dominating and England performed well rather than saying India did not play well…

HR: What are the advantages of using LCD,LED TVs rather than olden days picture tube TVs?
Me: Due to its resolution, size and weight LCD’s are preferred…Moreover it does not affect our eyes and we can able to see in HD…
HR: Floppies, Disks have been replaced by Pendrives…What’s ur review about this?
Me: Sir,we have been moving towards Artificial Intelligence…Size,Cost and it makes us to read/write the data easily…
HR: Given a paper and told me to draw the schematic representation of my mini project and explain…

Round 3: FINAL HR
It took around 10 min…There were 2 HRs..
HR 1: Tell about yourself.
Me: Same as in Tech HR.
HR 2: Why did you choose Engineering?
Me: Laughed and said, Sir actually I was willing to become a cricketer but my mother wished me to take Engineering. I believed that achieving for loved ones is always greater than achieving something.
HR 2: Ok if youu mother says you to leave CTS and go to other company,will you change your decision again?
Me: Sir, firstly my mother wont say like that, suppose if it happens I would try to convince her because working in CTS is a great pride for me…To be frank,this is my 31st interview…I have been struggling a lot but I did not lose my hope and moved with my positive attitude…Opportunity has been given by CTS and I will not this golden chance…
HR 1, HR 2: Thank you.
Me: Thank you so much Sir.
After this round I have been sent to other HR for documents verification…
All the Best Frenzzz and don’t lose your hope and hardwork,keep moving as much as you can. Try to write AMCAT EXAM, because most of the companies are hiring through them. You will be directed to Technical HR round if you have good AMCAT score.
