    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.

    Reasons for Declining

    The position I applied for seamed great on paper and I was very interested. It was for an Operation Manager at one of their clients. I was able to get through multiple rounds of interviews only to be held up constantly by them. I met with the hiring manager and won his approval. I had a phone call by the time I got home from HR informing me that they were going to make me an offer. We spoke about money. My salary was requirements were $5k higher than they wanted to pay for the position. I wasn’t willing to come down. I got an email the next day saying that they wanted me to meet with another senior manager due to the criticality of the position. I didn’t think anything of it, only that they should have said that before offering me the job. I was not sure if this had to do with my salary demands. Due to scheduling conflicts it took 2 weeks to setup that next interview. I didn’t hear back from them for 3-4 weeks. I left a couple messages with HR and sent a couple emails. No response. I wrote them off. Out of the blue they contacted me again saying they got the approval for the job offer. We spoke money again, and this time I was able to get $15k higher than my previous request. I was told that they hoped to have the offer to me by week’s end. It took 3 more weeks to get me the offer. All in all, it took 8 weeks from when they initially verbally offered me the job to get it in writing.
    I ended up declining the offer. In the time they were processing my offer, I successfully interviewed with another company that was US based and handled matters much more efficiently. The whole process was completely unorganized. I felt that there was a lack of coordination, and a disconnect between the US and India sides of the company. For a company that is trying to win US business, they are very much an Indian company, and run like one. After receiving the offer, I was doing my due diligence and didn’t find a single person that praised them. Most recommended avoiding them. They all stated they were cheap.

    Entry-Level MBA Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jersey City, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HCL Technologies (Jersey City, NJ) in December 2011.

    Interview

    I was referred to Axon through a friend who is employed at another division within HCL. I had the initial phone interview with the recruiter, and she asked your standard questions. She then gave me a case study to complete, which required some research. After I submitted the case study, I received a call from the recruiter that I would be speaking with the HR partner and I would also present my case study.

    The morning of the call, I took time off from work that morning so I could be give the call my full attention. Granted, I work full-time and go to business school part-time. Anyway, the call was 20 minutes late. Imagine if you show up 20 minutes late to an interview? Because I had to be into work, I kindly asked if I could reschedule, stating that I had to leave for work soon. She said we would finish within 40 minutes and I would present the case if I was selected to the next round. Anyway, she asked basic HR questions and had me read from my job experience from my resume. Keep in mind that I went to business school for a career change and have been an engineer at a manufacturing firm, so there was very little that I could transfer from previous experience. But I have developed transferable consulting competencies through my contributions to professional organizations I belong to, which I mentioned were more applicable and discussed in greater detail. No follow-on questions were asked to clarify my answers, no questions were asked about challenges that I have overcome, and no question was asked about the value I would add to Axon. And I did not even get a chance to present my case study, which I took a day off to complete.

    The following week, I received an e-mail that I was not a fit for the firm. And that assessment came from an interview where the call was late, the interview was truncated and lacked depth, and I was not able to present any competencies through the case study.
