Lead Engineer Interview

Lead Engineer
Hyderābād (India)

I applied online - interviewed at HCL Technologies in September 2013.

Interview Details – There will be 3 rounds of interview, 2 technical as well as one HR, Most of the time questions will be asked on technical knowledge of your area of work. Some times they ask questions related to algorithms and data-structures, may also ask you to write some code like sorting,linked lists.

Interview Question – I fell its difficult for experienced programmers to answer data-structures questions as most of people don't work on them, especially when their framework is already providing all of them without writing any code for that.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Salary negotiation will be very difficult, they don't give you what you expected until unless there is an urgent need.

Interview Details – 1 Telephonic round (45 min) mainly technical, the questions where based upon your previous projects, 1 F2F Technical round (1 Hr) questions where basically on the technology you were presently working on and on your previous projects. 1 Manager Round- Nothing technical only generic questions related to your past projects and experience, Finally HR Round- Only for collecting your personal details, no negotiation.

Overall good Interview process, but the hiring process is dead slow. It took almost 3+ weeks to release offer letter.
