Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 8+ monthsinterviewed at HCL Technologies.

Interview

The interview process took 8 months and entailed 6 interviews. There was a round with someone to test the technical background and a second level check on this as well. Then there were several telephone conversations with onsite personnel, and a final on site interview.

Interview Questions

  • In depth detailed questions on ITIL processes. Like repeat the textbook kind of questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation

Despite earlier speak of salary level HCL tried to go below this level. As onsite salaries do not effectively increase one should take into consideration the amount of pay for the full period.

    Interview

    Fresher Hiring is central. Lateral hiring is done by individual Business units. Two technical panels and a HR interview are the norm. For positions of Group Manager and above the head of the business unit may be involved in the hiring decision. Technical Panel 1 may be by peer level. Technical panel 2 would be immediate supervisor and a subject matter expert. The HR interview is normally a compensation negotiation, post which a background verification would be done. The offer letter would be sent after verification.

    • I was interviewed for a HR role and the questions were well within my knowledge level. The difficulty came when I was offered a choice of positions in HR, nd.Program Management and Operations - since I had experience in all three because my entrepreneurial background   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was not able to negotiate much as I was returning to the world Corporate after 10 years of partnering a business venture that grew from INR 800000 to INR 40000000 during my tenure. The lack of a 'corporate brand' was cited as a reason for not giving credence to my years of experience.
