    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at HCL Technologies.

    Interview

    It was an interview conducted on-campus for Java developer position. There ware 2 rounds.

    The first one was a one to one HR interview. Just the usual questions.

    The second round was group interview. The interviewer tested many areas, which included knowledge in the subjects, performance in a team/group, general knowledge and interests in extra-curricula.

    I gave the interview about two years ago. So I don't remember the questions asked. But both rounds were easy. The interviewers were very nice and made me feel relaxed and comfortable.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at HCL Technologies.

    Interview

    A recruiter called, asked me a few questions about my resume, if I'd be willing to relocate, what kind of salary I expected, if I was a US citizen, and if I had a record. Then he said he would send me the details soon. About two days later during the afternoon he called said the interview would be held the next day at a location 7+ hours away. No transportation or rooming was provided. I was not allowed to go past the lobby of the building at the interview location and we held our interview outside. The interviewers themselves were nice and in casual clothing. They got the notice about the interview about the same time I did.

    Interview Questions

    • The followup question caught me off guard:
      What's the difference between C and C++?
      What are the traits of an OOL? Can you describe them?
      What are the types of inheritance?

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at HCL Technologies (Cary, NC) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Hiring was with two managers one who really didn't care anything about you only that you worked and the other didn't seem to care at all. The main guy who runs the IT portion in India drilled you on tech questions and day to day operations and the other manager just asked basic IT questions that any IT person would know and it was very straight forward and very relaxed if you know your stuff.

    Interview Questions

    • IT was not difficult they either liked you or didn't like you.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was contracted so no negotiations so I was stuck with the low base pay of 12 dollars per hour.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at HCL Technologies (Denver, CO) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiting company(whom I could barely understand) After a brief phone call from the hiring Manager, who then told me that this wasn't really an management position, more like a Lead position, a face to face was set up. 2 local and 1 remote via video conference. The interview was fairly quick and the questions didn't seem like they were related to the job title. A few days went by and I called the recruiter for a follow up. I was told they wanted to go in a different direction. Almost a month later the recruiter called me to say that after 10 more interviews they wanted to hire me. I found that very strange. After verbally saying I would take the position, i waited 2 weeks for an offer letter. During this time, I had another phone call with the hiring Manger and 2 others at the company that did not identify what they did for the company. Finally the offer was made.
