    The process took 2 months - interviewed at HCL Technologies in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    The first round interview with their new graduate program was two one-on-one interviews. They were the basic behavioral interview style. There was supposed to be a second round interview in which they sent you a case study and then you had a week to solve it. It would be followed up by a phone interview discussing the resolution. The second round was skipped in my case and went straight to the final round. Final round was held in their office as a day long affair. It was a group case study that was scheduled to take most of the day. Then throughout the group case work, members of the group were taken out individually for additional individual behavioral interview and question time. Their graduate program is still in the developmental stage and they are trying to recruit recent graduates and MBA graduates to fill the consultant position.

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 days - interviewed at HCL Technologies in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview went on pretty well. At least, the person who took my technical interview was knowledgeable.

    Reasons for Declining

    The offer was with a 30% hike to my existing package and taking off 15% from my CTC as variable component. I also heard HCL does whatever it can to take as much as variable component they can every year.
    HR is pathetic. They'll cry on their knees to give you more than 30% and say 15% of your CTC is variable pay component.

    Be very careful, you might be joining for a lakh more in fixed component
