    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

    Java Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at HCL Technologies (Redmond, WA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The interview started late and seemed disorganized from the start. I went in for Java Developer (Fresher) but instead was asked if I was interested in Devops positions. They pressured me to answer during the interview, even though I had only just learned of the job. Shortly after while I taking a test for the Java position they told me I could leave. I didn't even get a chance for the developer position. It seems like they didn't tell me exactly what I was going in to interview for and made me look bad coming in for one position when in fact they needed another position filled.

    Help Desk Analysis Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cary, NC

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at HCL Technologies (Cary, NC) in September 2015.

    Interview

    You arrive early to make a good impression and your not seen for over an hour and half later. Interviewed by 2 project leads who didn't have much of idea how to interview. Questions were very vague and unprepared. They also didn't seam very interested in my answers only that I was able to talk fluently. That was a point they kept bring up. How do you feel about talking on the phone all day. My response was this is a help desk position correct? Questioning only took about 10 mins since I wasn't able to finish a complete explanation before they cut off my answers and said thank you will call you with an answer. I received a phone call before I even got home offering the position. Seems like they only cared about a warm body taking a seat. I have been a hiring manager before in numerous positions and I can honestly say I wouldn't have hired either of these people. The only reason I applied for this position was to fill my time in between other contracts.

    Teir II Technician Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HCL Technologies (Arlington, VA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Terrible! I was asked to meet the recruiter at a hotel not a office. The interviewer did not inform the front desk they would be there, so I had to call the recruiter to try an make contact with the interviewer because he would not his phone when I called it. After waiting an hour and half after my scheduled time he finally shows up (Mind you he walked pass me 3 times before even asking if I was there for the interview).
    The interviewer admits during the interview they do not have an office in the area yet this company claims to be big money.
    He explained the position and what I would be doing BUT, never got a chance to do anything that was mentioned. And I could sense a slight language barrier.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked the standard IT Support questions: Have you worked at a helpdesk before? What kind of problems did you solve?   1 Answer
