    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at HCL Technologies (Chennai (India)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I got a call from one of the HR's to come for a F2F interview on Saturday. The HR asked me about my expected CTC and I told her what I wanted. I demanded 70% but she said they can give upto 60%. Anyway I accepted and went for the interview. There, they made me wait for two hours and the contact person comes upto me and asked if I was willing to work in production support or am I willing to relocate to another location. I said no to both and told them that I was called for this interview for a Developer position in my current location. I was then again asked to wait for an hour. Then they called me to write a coding test in computer. Although the test was challenging, there was no proper invigilation or anything. I could see people opening the IDE to find the answers and some were also Googling for the answers. I cleared the test and was told that I will be called during the weekdays for the second round. Two days later, a HR called me and told me that they can proceed with my application only for a hike of 25%. Even the tone , the HR spoke was really rude. It was more like a 'only if you need to'. I said staying in my company for 3 more months will actually get me that hike and that I do not wish to ever consider HCL for any opportunity in the future and hung up. I had other company interviews on Saturday, but I chose HCL over them only because they had a good reputation inside me. But this behavior of theirs is really bad.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at HCL Technologies (Noida (India)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Pathetic experience. They wasted so many weekends for me. They schedule your interview on weekends and they at last minute will say it got postponed to Monday. Advise to all, please don't waste your weekends for this company.
    The questions they asked on the phone were pretty straightforward and easy. I gave all the answers but still after wasting my 1 months or so they said the response is not positive.
    They won't even given you a response in case they don't like you, the lady HR should have some curtsy to give a response to the person who is giving their interview for last 1 month.

    Interview is not that much difficult If you are good in basics and some programming logical skills it was good enough to crack the interview.The Technical Panel are good, I have cleared the 2 Technical rounds after waiting for more than 4 hrs .
    Finally HR round . HR asked about some details and salary expectations,I was informed that in a day or two we will contact about the further process.
    Even after repeated reminders for more than 2 weeks no response from HR/Recruiter.
