    Systems Analyst II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at HCL Technologies in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied via CareerBuilder. Within 5 minutes i was in contact with a recruiter directly from the company. At that time i scheduled a time for me to attend the "Open House" at the company where i would be tested, then interviewed. After hanging up, I recieved at least 10 phone calls from outside recruiting agencies (90% were Indian). I arrived to be seated in a room with about 8 other people, it was clear this was a mass hiring. We were taken to a Lab where we had 40 questions ranging from
    "What network model is described and one computer connected to another in succession where the last computer connects to the first(wording?): Ring was the answer"
    to
    "How to do you set the default paper layout for a printer?"

    These questions were all multiple choice, but they were translated from indian to english, so some of the questions/answers were a bit hard to understand.
    They said i did VERY well, one of the highest scores, yet i received a low C on the test. (You need 20 questions correct to pass)

    Then we proceeded to the interviews. Because you do not apply for a specific position, they have you interview in a layered approach. My first interview went well, he said that i was overqualified for any of the positions he had (I assume tier 1) and i would speak with the next interviewer. The next interview on the other hand seemed very unprofessional. He had a very thick accent so somethings were a bit hard to understand, but his vague questions, "What do you know about application?" "what is your weakness" Followed by the interruption of my questions to the interviewer, only to be dismissed did not set well with me.

    Because it is an india based company, you have to take a drug test and background check before an offer is made.
    I received my offer, but the salary was far below market, no negotiation was possible.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at HCL Technologies in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by company recruiter on Friday afternoon. Asked on Saturday to interview with PMO director in India @ 9:30PM Sunday night. The phone bridge number provided by the recruiter was wrong but the interviewer called me on my cell phone. PMO director described his interview expectations and process. Very refreshing. Questions were technical in nature; requested definition of terms within the job responsibilities. Very easy interview. After 1 hour interview, PMO director said that he was happy and wanted to make a decision ASAP. Next step was a face-to-face interview. I had to contact recruiter to schedule

    Face to face interview was at company office in Frisco TX with service delivery VP. The person was 45 minutes late to the interview due to a meeting with a customer. When it took place, the interview lasted over an hour. Questions focused on personality, description of most current projects.

    Continued questions throughout the process of my willingness to relocate to Dallas. All through the process, I responded that I was willing to relocate. A week after interview, was told that I made a good impression but were concerned about my willingness to relocate.

    I took my name out of consideration due to 2 other offers received.
