I interviewed for the position of an Auditor at TCS or Tata Consultancy Services in August 2019. I applied for the position as a fresher through my university’s Placement Assistance Cell. The place of my interview was Noida and it was a pool campus drive. Below is a summary of my TCS interview pertaining to my job role, salary offered for it, number of rounds that I faced and other crucial details.

Auditing interview questions I faced in my TCS interview

I faced the following questions in my TCS HR interview round. These are the answers I gave.

Q1. Why do you want to become an Auditor at TCS?

I would like to scrutinize that work was properly done. I will also check if it was done as per prescribed rules and regulations. I will also avoid discrepancies while doing work. That’s why I want to become an auditor in TCS.

Q2. What are tangible and intangible assets?

Tangible assets are the ones we can see or touch for instance what goods lie in the inventory of a factory, machinery, etc. Intangible assets are invisible assets and are mostly goodwill of the company.

Q3. Who audits an auditing firm?

One auditing firm can ofcourse audit another auditing firm.

Q4. What is the job of an internal auditor?

An internal auditor’s job is to contact the board of directors or an auditing committee. Such a committee has to ensure the independence of internal auditing as well.

Q5. How can scope of internal auditing help a company like TCS?

Basically, internal audit is an independent appraisal function. It is generally established by the management of an organization. Its purpose is to review internal control systems as a service to the organization as well as to decipher the scope of internal audit.

Q6. What do you feel will be your role during an internal audit in any firm?

It is a continuous review of operations and records undertaken within the business. It has to operate independently of all other internal checks and the auditor should not divest any one of the responsibilities placed upon him. It is an independent appraisal activity in an organization for reviewing operations as a service to the management. The manager of this team has to measure and evaluate effectiveness of controls. To do so, following areas need to be reviewed by an auditor:

  • Reliability and integrity of data
  • Compliance with policies, plans, procedures, laws and regulations
  • Safeguarding assets
  • Economy and efficiency of resources
  • Accomplishment of established objectives
  • Accomplishment of goals for operations or programs

I would also like to add that I am a hard worker and a diligent candidate. Hence with good preparation, I was able to crack my Auditor-cum-Accountant Interview at TCS. I was a fresher but I had been working for a small company during my college days. That is why during my TCS interview, I already had gathered 1.5 years of total work experience in power audit. I had also spoken to a few seniors and had built a strong network within TCS as referenced. I think all these points culminated together to help me crack the Auditor’s interview at Tata Consultancy Services.
