Software Developer Intern Interview

Software Developer Intern
Redmond, WA

I applied through college or university and the process took 7+ weeks - interviewed at HCL Technologies in June 2012.

Interview Details – Phone call. No coding questions asked. They just asked really typically "What was a project you worked on and a challenge you had to overcome" type questions. It sounded like english was not their first language (I later found out that this company is almost completely indian people). It also sounded like they were just reading the questions off a note sheet. Took near 50 days for them to get back to me...

Negotiation Details – No negotiation.

Human Resources Analyst Interview

Human Resources Analyst

Interviewed at HCL Technologies

Interview Details – Initial communication by e-mail, followed by a screening phone call. Interview was pleasant and about half an hour long. Regular questions including salary expectations were discussed at this stage which was a little surprising. The next was a hiring manager interview which was shorter but more directed towards operational issues. Was told that I would be getting an offer by e-mail but the position did not open up as the current analyst decided to stay. Overall a positive experience.

I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at HCL Technologies in March 2012.

Interview Details – So far I have had two technical interviews and one face-to-face. I applied through a recruiting company back in February. While I was told I was 'selected' as the candidate it seems that there are other candidates from other recruiting companies. Still waiting for final outcome.
