I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 4 days - interviewed at HCL Technologies in May 2014.

Interview Details – I have been called twiced between 6 months.I have applied with them through a staffing agency in January 2014.
First time they call in Feb 2014 and took first round of technical interview.But after that no communication.My recruiter told me they will call you for further round but it not happen.
Suddenly i again got a call from HCL in 3rd week of May 2014.They said you have to again go through all the rounds i agreed.

Then again my 1st round techical, 2nd round and HR happened all were telephonic rounds only.All salary negotiation is done in 2nd round my Manager only and i agreed with him.He tell me soon HR will contact you and offer letter will be provided.
Then HR send me some form to fill i fill that form there i need to fill all the details such as Education,Employment etc. no negotiations made.

But its now still i didn't get offer letter after 10+ days.Can you tell how much time they take to process offer letter.

Interview Question – 2nd round is the most difficult round as they asked tricky questions.I belong to SAP functional module.   Answer Question

Associate Consultant
London, England (UK)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 days - interviewed at HCL Technologies in June 2012.

Interview Details – Terrible.

First interview was a telephone interview with HCL. A certain Watford based recruitment manager, Mr SS, also made a long list of false promises.

Second interview was at the customers site - then an offer was made the same day. All of the terms we had verbally agreed were changed within being onsite for 6 months - the contract only said it's all at managers discretion, so couldn't go further forward with it.

Again - lots of false hope and promises of bonuses, sick pay and holiday that was taken away. All seems to be the same problem with the same recruiting manager.

Interview Question – How have you failed to deliver a customers expectation?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Terrible negotiation phase - agreed to everything I asked for, but later removed it. Contracts are generic with statutory minimums and state "Any enhancement or uplift is at managers discretion"
