I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at HCL Technologies in May 2013.

They then take a written grammar test. They then take an online technical test followed by an Interview and they then do a HR discussion round where compensation is discussed.

Interview Question – Why did you not choose an competitor of HCL   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – It was very unpleasant. The HR offered me a package of 30% less what I was getting from my previous employer and never gave any positive response during the negotiation. At several times the HR was extremely rude and commented on my technical capabilities.
