Business Development Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at HCL Technologies in January 2016.

Interview

I interviewed with HCL for a position here in US within their IOT group. The interviewer asked me about my profile and I explained how my skill sets and experience align very well with their requirements. One of my last questions was if my salary expectation would align with what they plan to offer. The interviewer said they pay top dollar and that wont be an issue. The interviewer also told me that he was very impressed with my profile and will set up a follow up interview with the US business lead. 3 weeks go by and I do not hear back from HCL and when I call them back they tell me that they do not want to proceed because they think that I concentrate too much on compensation. According to them I should have gone ahead with all the interview rounds (which is many hours of time investment by me as well as the HCL interviewers), not mention compensation until they decide to offer me the position at the very end. If the interviewer did not like the fact that I asked about compensation (as my last question) then he should at least have not told me that he wanted to schedule another interview.

I dont think I will be every applying to this company again... Glad I found out about them before I got in

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at HCL Technologies (Jersey City, NJ) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Applied online was called up & scheduled a fly-out.

    Met with a guy by the name of Vijay Verma who was incredibly rude, obnoxious, often cut me off during my responses. He also took a phone call in the middle of an interview which is completely discourteous to the applicant.

    As others have noted on this job board, get everything in writing! The company lied about who I was supposed to meet with.
