    Average Interview

    Interview

    Had two round of interviews with senior managers. It was casual conversation...they asked me about my past experiences. But there was very poor communication in between interviews. They would ask my availability and not get back to me for weeks. I had a bad feeling about the company from the interview process. I was right - the company: its communication, culture etc is aweful.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HCL Technologies.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with the lead, the interview took about 15min. One week later I was called to schedule an in person interview with the manager. This interview was also about 15-20 min. I was asked if I had a problem with performing s background check and of course the answer was no. I never gave him any information besides my resume, citizenship and complete address. I called a week later to follow up and the lead explain the background check is still being conducted and it can sometimes take 4 weeks. It is exactly 2 weeks and I haven't heard anything. I'm getting anxious and ready to began work. Does anyone know how long it took before they started working.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HCL Technologies (New York, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I have been contacted through the recruiter and delivery manager. Initial telephonic discussion about your expectations, roles and responsibilities. Initially they will agree to your all terms and expected compensation, after interview they will negotiate. They will ready to pay certain amount. Then after 2 days there higher management will reduce the budget for this position so they will stop replying you. After follow up you will come to know they don't have budget and they even don't have budget to reply to emails and calls when they don't want to go ahead with selected candidates. Simple don't join and don't even think to schedule interview because initially they will commit everything but when it comes to rolling out offer they keep crying and start hiding there faces.

    Interview Questions

    • Very easy interview process. The people who take interview think that they are Steve jobs, big attitude and ego kind of technical panel. They keep asking invalid kind of questions and approach to solve them, then you cant convince them its not valid statement.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at HCL Technologies (Seattle, WA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied this job from a job board That recruitment was posted by a vendor of this company. So I was contacted by a recruiter. He wanted me to go to interview in the afternoon of same day. I felt it was too rushed. I asked him that would I have another option? He thought about it for a while then said how about afternoon of the next day. I had 2 interviews on that day. First one was their leader of recruiter team. I had good conversation with him. Second one was with his boss. But I was not sure about his position. He liked to change the topics very fast, sometimes I even didnt have enough time to finish current question. He also asked me write down what I do daily on a big white board. Feeling stressful with this boss. Have not heard from them about their decision.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at HCL Technologies (Nashville, TN) in February 2015.

    Interview

    They were hiring multiple people for the position. It was a mass interview event, lots of candidates (used in & out like cattle). Most of the interviews flew in from out of state & some were from affiliated company's not HCL. I Spoke with 2 different people for about 15 minutes each. It appeared that if the first person you talked to thought you did well you were passed onto the next. My interview was at the end of the day and I was not able to speak to a 3rd person from HCL to get any questions answered,about the position as they had all left to go to the airport.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiations - I was emailed an acceptance package with the details. I had to agree to a salary amount through the recrutor before my interview
