    Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Chennai (India)
    Anonymous Employee in Chennai (India)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took a day - interviewed at HCL Technologies in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process was the worst, they send mails to inbox as if it is a scheduled interview but it'll have 500 candidates a virtual walk-in!
    Then they'll ask you to write a written test consisting on silly basic question
    You feel funny and fill the white sheet anyway
    You submit paper (might drink a glass of water) and results will be out in seconds, criteria could be that you must be from a low tier firm so you'd accept any offer also some good answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Offer was too low and off industry standard

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at HCL Technologies.

    Interview Details

    It was an on-campus recruitment at a famous college in Bangalore. There was an initial aptitude test to clear, followed by an in-person interview which was mostly based on the details on my resume and some basic HR related questions which was pretty simple to deal with. Since they were mass recruiters, the interviewer seemed pretty chilled out and eased me through the process.

    Interview Questions
    • Honestly, the in-person interview was pretty simple. The aptitude test requires some preparation.   Answer Question
