    Software Developer Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Redmond, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redmond, WA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. 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...

    Human Resources Analyst Interview

    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 interviewed 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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redmond, WA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at HCL Technologies in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview that was non technical with an HR lady. She asked me about my experience and what I wanted to accomplish on the job. I then went in for an all day interview where I spent most of the time solving problems in a group setting. At the end I was grabbed for a one on one to answer a few questions on the whiteboard. Basic questions involving data structures, string manipulation, and OOP principles

    There was a salary offer that wasn't really negotiable. I did have another offer at the time but it was less so I decided to go with this one.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at HCL Technologies.

    Interview Details

    Multiple basic interview mostly on work experience. Seemed like a good team to work with but there were too many rounds of interviews than necessary, probably for a lack of better recruitment process. If you're on a fast track mode on your job hunt, this may not be dependable.
