Things that you need to bring:

1. At least 3 different neckties with matching formal wear
2. formal shoes, sneakers and shoe/wax or polish, sandals
3. tennis / badminton/ TT rackets of you play
4. credit card / debit card to purchase laundry coins (no cash entertained on that)
5. a Swiss army knife if you have one , pair of scissors / knife
6. cell phone and charger (the most convenient way here)

Things that you need NOT bring with you:

1. Towels, soap, blankets, cups/mugs (we have got our own Infosys mug!)
2. detergent, notebook (Infosys provides that), pens, mosquito repellants
3. alarm, hair oil , cream
4. umbrellas / raincoats, hangers, iron
5. Laptops / CD / floppies / pen drives – this is a restricted area of the electronic city..

Regarding the Mysore Campus

We have been allotted rooms at random in the hostel so don’t expect your best friend to be your roommate.

Rooms: Tea bags, coffee and creamers are present all the time for you. Housekeeper makes the beds and cleans the room everyday. Even our towels are replaced regularly. We need not close the lights when leaving the room because they shut off automatically. There is an intercom in each room and hot and cold water is available for 24 hrs a day. Each room has an alarm, wall clock, study tables and electric boiler, A/C and TV with cable connection. We are given our personal “Infosys” mugs for coffee and tea at office.

General: Airtel and Hutch have their shops on campus. So have DTDC, First Flight and Speed Post. There are 3 ICICI ATMs. Power never goes off because Infosys has they have their own mini power plant. There is a general store, book store, saloon, clinic, laundry service (affordable). The stuff here in general is very modestly priced and good in quality. The general store also has a mini bakery for snacks. There is a library and cybercafé too.

Training and Induction: The induction programme is very well organized and managed. People here are very friendly in attitude right from the housekeeper to the HR managers. We almost have a feeling of being pampered. Attendance is automatic. Be sure to get vaccinated because you cannot take any leave here – falling sick can have very unpleasant consequences.

    why u have mentioned not to bring these (hair oil , cream, umbrellas ,ironbox, soap)
    will infy provide these too?

  2. Chintan Patel  

    @ab..

    Infy will provide umbrellas, iron box and soap...

    And dont bring oil, shampoo etc because you can buy them from the supermarket on the first day itself where you will surely go on the day you arrive here... So no need to carry them from your home to here..

  3. Unknown  

    which soap they will provide

  4. Chintan Patel  

    They give mysore sandal soap...

  5. Unknown  

    very good coincidence

  6. Unknown  

    will they keep any interview to test our communication skills regularly.
    Is there any other thing we hav to concentrate other than online tests

  7. Chintan Patel  

    no.. dont worry about anything else except online tests...

    just do well in those...

    there wud be one stupid test in the first week and then you will have ILI sessions in the end to test your english skills in the form of essay writing, GD etc...

  8. Unknown  

    hi, what is ILI?

  9. Unknown  

    what topics they give in GD as i am very poor in having knowledge about current affairs

  10. Chintan Patel  

    @Vikram...

    ILI is Infosys Leadership Institute which handles all these stupid english, personal effectiveness classes...

    @ab...

    they can be anything... you will be given about 10 topics and the team has to decide on one..

    Our topic was "You never get a second chance to make a good first impression".

  14. Chintan Patel  

    @ab...

  16. Ankeet Maini

  17. Chintan Patel  

    @Ankeet...

    I dont know anything worth sharing about this topic. You shud ask someone else.

    Hi Chintan

    My broth gifted me an apple ipod.can i take it with me inside campus??Also u told in one of ur post that on the first day of the training infy will provide us new sim cards?Is it compulsory to buy that..?since i'm a tamil gal can i get tamilnadu sim cards over there??

  19. Chintan Patel  

    @Seetha...

    You can take it with you at mysore but it may not be allowed inside classrooms because it will be classified as storage media. New SIM cards?? I never told that. You cant buy tamilnadu SIM cards. You have to buy local SIM cards in that state. Why do you deliberately want to be on roaming by using TN SIM cards?

  20. Unknown  

    Actually I'll be in mysore only during training na aft tat i need my posting in chennai so i want my number to be permanent one.can u tell me which stream should be chosen which i can prepare myself so tat i'll be getting posting to chennai DC?My parents wont be leaving me out of chennai. so tell me some suggestion to get chennai DC pls??

  21. Chintan Patel  

    @Seetha...

    Yaar, then you can use your existing TN SIM card there. You cant choose your stream. You have to go with the stream they allot to you. Please dont ask repeated questions. Read all the posts and their comments before asking a question.

  22. Unknown  

    yeah i read all ur posts regarding posting.U had clearly explained about the swapping methods and stream allocation.But still it is not sure tat every1 can get what they want..

  23. Chintan Patel  

    @Seetha...

    If after reading all the posts it is not clear, i dont know what to say. I dont know how to explain any more clearly than i have already done in my previous posts.

  24. Selva Babu  

    hi....first thanks to ur informations given on infosys.........i ve got selected in infosys...but during selection i've done a mistake in my first and last names..i've got offer letter in that name only...i cannot change it in infosys website....can it be changed?? how??...does it take any negative effect on the offer??.....please clarify me with this....

  25. Chintan Patel  

    @Selva...

    It does not have any negative effect and you can mail offer_update and send them the proof of your real name. I think it will be done.

  26. Selva Babu  

    thank u very much..........

  27. razu1206  

    hello chinthan,
    i selected job location as mysore in e-joining site ....
    so can i change that....?
    so if cannot change, after the completion of training i will be join in mysore....?
    please reply me soon...

  28. Chintan Patel  

    @Razu...

    I dont think it makes a difference because trainees cannot choose their training location as far as i know. And its not that you will be posted to Mysore because you selected Mysore on e-joining.

  29. Unknown  

    If the shampoo is medicated then can we carry it

  30. Unknown
