By the means of this article, I want to draw the attention of TCS employees, who are maintaining the given website:
Here, I chose the relevant option, and I was forwarded to an online form which to looked something like
I was happy that the page finally loaded, but then the filling of the form was more painful than I had ever experienced. No keyboard shortcuts, no tabs, field have business rules which don’t even let you write proper English, no regard for punctuation etc. It was a nightmare. But, I was only being prepared for the worse.
After filling out all the details on the subsequent page about my educational background, which, by the way, was another experience. I was forced to submit the details for last 12 years. starting from when I was 16 years old boy. They asked me to give details about my 10th Class enrolment number. Now, luckily I had my degree scrolls with me. I was thinking about people in senior positions who have to go through this process.
Anyways, coming back to the main part. After filling out my educational details, I was asked to put my professional details. I completed my details for my last organization, and tried to add a new row, when system prompted, “Please enter date in proper format”. I thought, I had done something wrong, so I chose the dates again from the “date selection helper”. But alas, I was again prompted with the same error, and it was a deadlock. There was no possible workaround for this, except that I had to put my details in the system without any professional experience.
Towards the finish, I added my contact details, thinking I will receive an auto-generated mail, with details and a provision to change the profile, but again I never received any confirmation mail.
Does this mean that when you want to apply for TCS, you should always look for a headhunters, online job portal of a 3rd party vendor or some other way. Doesn’t this raise the very question on why this system is in place?
Brand Building is a gradual thing, and TCS has done the hard work by investing millions in it. But, mistakes like these somewhere shows the complacency in the company’s attitude towards quality.
Thus, I request TCS to look into this matter and try to do justice to the global brand name they have established over the period of time. You are providing best of the IT products, and services to World’s biggest firms, you must raise your standards to sustain this growth and brand name.
I personally admire TCS, and this post should be seen as an attempt to improve and maintain the TCS Brand name.
