CTS INTERVIEW - 09 APR 2006 - COIMBATORE
Hai , I am sreenivasan
Let me tell u abt the Tech and HR.
mine was the first batch at 9.00am on 9th april. i was there by 7.45 am,
time management is very important coz they set aside all the people wjo came
late, may be they gave chance at last. there were all together 4 batches
9.00, 10.00, 11.00 and 1.00.
they started calling people(330 total) at 9.15 am. A lady came and anounced
that there is TECH and HR rounds and if we feel that u have done enough in
Tech the person in the panel will say u directly to check ur results and in
case if we feel that we need to take u to HR then u will be sent to HR.
the condition here is if u dont go for HR that means u dont find ur name in
the results, TECH round was also elimination round, and HR was selection
round. there were all together 21 panels 18 TECH and 3 HR. nobody knows that
u do have HR panels until u clear TECH.
The candidates who cleared TECH were taken to a seperate place to sit and
then sent for HR only 66 were selected out of 330. i am one of them.
mine was panel 11. There was only one person his site makes u feel
comfortable and says that he is very friendly and has a lot of experience in

before it gores for the call, it would push tha status into a stack sir,
TECH: ok tell me the output of this
