Embedded Systems Engineer (Co-op) Interview

Embedded Systems Engineer (Co-op)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at HCL Technologies.

Interview Details – A recruiter called, asked me a few questions about my resume, if I'd be willing to relocate, what kind of salary I expected, if I was a US citizen, and if I had a record. Then he said he would send me the details soon. About two days later during the afternoon he called said the interview would be held the next day at a location 7+ hours away. No transportation or rooming was provided. I was not allowed to go past the lobby of the building at the interview location and we held our interview outside. The interviewers themselves were nice and in casual clothing. They got the notice about the interview about the same time I did.

Interview Question – The followup question caught me off guard:
What's the difference between C and C++?
What are the traits of an OOL? Can you describe them?
What are the types of inheritance?

Human Resources Analyst Interview

Human Resources Analyst

Interviewed at HCL Technologies

Interview Details – Initial communication by e-mail, followed by a screening phone call. Interview was pleasant and about half an hour long. Regular questions including salary expectations were discussed at this stage which was a little surprising. The next was a hiring manager interview which was shorter but more directed towards operational issues. Was told that I would be getting an offer by e-mail but the position did not open up as the current analyst decided to stay. Overall a positive experience.
