I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at HCL Technologies in June 2010.

Interview Details – Recruiters have you take a skill assessment test to determine your level of knowledge. Meet with recruiter and hiring manager for different projects

Interview Question – The always popular behavior question of "describe a difficult scenario that you fought through in your current job"   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – With mine the negotiation was with a recruiter with a background in India culture. He acted like the below average salary offered was the best he could do

Anonymous Interview Candidate
West Point, PA

The process took 2 days - interviewed at HCL Technologies in December 2011.

Interview Details – I partook in a "weekend" interview for the job role. They were very courteous to let me know when they would be calling. Only the first interview was all of 10 minutes long asking simple hr questions. The second interview the following day was more or less a repeat of the first, lasting about 30 minutes long. The fact that they did not verify my technical skills was a bit worrying. I was thinking, "If they don't screen very well, then what will my coworkers be like?" Anyway, I thought they weren't interested but the following week they had an offer 10 k less than my asking salary.

Reason for Declining – While I haven't officially declined it yet, I'm seriously considering it. I'll update this once I've made my decision.

Tech Lead Interview

Tech Lead
Noida (India)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at HCL Technologies in July 2013.

Interview Details – Hiring process is very professional as expected.
1. Written Test
2. First Technical Discussion
3. Second Technical Discussion,
I dont know what is after this round, I was rejected in this round. Though this was a second technical round, there was not much technical in this round. I was given a array to find duplicates to using single loop which I completed and the question that I could not resolve in time was a - there are two buckets of 3 litre and 5 litre and how to fill the 5L bucket with 4L water. It took me time to think and could not finish in expected duration and may be this pushed me out.
Though there could be another reason, my experience and interest is mostly into web development (I shared this during my discussion) and in my interview invitation e-mail they had just asked for .Net professionals however they were recruiting mainly for Windows based development platform. I don't understand why even big companies cant be clear and specific in their requirement of correct candidature.

Interview Question – Write a program to input an integer and return its Roman value.   Answer Question
