    QA Automation Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at HCL Technologies (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter from Hcl team to interview for the above position at the hcl office. I attended 2 rounds of interview- 1 programming test and 1 technical f2f interview. The interviewing was pretty thorough. I was informed that I had cleared both rounds and the next step was a client interview. I was told I would be contacted by the hr team within the next week about the date, timings and location for the client. I never received a call from them. I followed up twice and then they sent me the call letter to interview with their client.
    I had furthermore 3 rounds of interviews with the client team-1 programming test(asked to write code on paper), 1 hands on automation test and 1 technical f2f.
    It was a harrowing experience, more so because the interviewer repeatedly insisted that his wrong answers were right. Please note that the questions were logically straightforward. He kept insisting that he ran my code and didn't get the output he was expecting.
    I don't understand why I was called for an interview when clearly the interviewer wasn't interested in hiring me from the get go.
    I heard similar experiences from people who interviewed there. It is extremely disappointing to see how little they value the interviewing canditates time.

    Although the experience might be team dependent, my team was fantastic, project was great, manager was super chill (got to go golfing with him), and the support for interns is fantastic! We had SO many intern events and were definitely well taken care of.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at HCL Technologies.

    Interview

    Got invited for in-person, first and only interview. First part was technical based, basic OOP, software development process questions. Three simple coding questions on white board (involving C# and SQL). Second part involved another coding exercise with a manager, then more question and answer about broad topics.

    Got an offer but after asking questions to learn more about the job itself, benefits, I learned about 7 weeks training in another state very far away, which wasn't mentioned at all in the offer letter. There were even phone calls to even ask why I haven't accepted the offer. You cannot press candidates to sign something immediately after you give them the offer. I got put off this company completely.
