    Help Desk Analysis Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cary, NC
    Accepted Offer
    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.

    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.

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Had two round of interviews with senior managers. It was casual conversation...they asked me about my past experiences.
    But there was very poor communication in between interviews. They would ask my availability and not get back to me for weeks.
    I had a bad feeling about the company from the interview process. I was right - the company: its communication, culture etc is aweful.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiation my salary a little bit. They reluctantly gave me a small increase from the initial offer

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HCL Technologies.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with the lead, the interview took about 15min. One week later I was called to schedule an in person interview with the manager. This interview was also about 15-20 min. I was asked if I had a problem with performing s background check and of course the answer was no. I never gave him any information besides my resume, citizenship and complete address. I called a week later to follow up and the lead explain the background check is still being conducted and it can sometimes take 4 weeks. It is exactly 2 weeks and I haven't heard anything. I'm getting anxious and ready to began work. Does anyone know how long it took before they started working.

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HCL Technologies (New York, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I have been contacted through the recruiter and delivery manager. Initial telephonic discussion about your expectations, roles and responsibilities.
    Initially they will agree to your all terms and expected compensation, after interview they will negotiate. They will ready to pay certain amount. Then after 2 days there higher management will reduce the budget for this position so they will stop replying you. After follow up you will come to know they don't have budget and they even don't have budget to reply to emails and calls when they don't want to go ahead with selected candidates.
    Simple don't join and don't even think to schedule interview because initially they will commit everything but when it comes to rolling out offer they keep crying and start hiding there faces.

    Interview Questions

    • Very easy interview process. The people who take interview think that they are Steve jobs, big attitude and ego kind of technical panel.
      They keep asking invalid kind of questions and approach to solve them, then you cant convince them its not valid statement.
