    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.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chennai (India)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pune (India)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at HCL Technologies (Pune (India)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was supposed to be scheduled interview on 13/11/2016 but was kept waiting from morning 10:30 a.m. to evening 7 p.m.No round was conducted till 5 p.m. Hundreds of people were kept waiting. Multiple interviews for various skills were going on. Nobody was concerned about the candidates waiting. Poor HR guys were also burdened with the large number of candidates waiting. Some of the people who had come earlier had to wait coz their resumes were misplaced. Very poor management. No food or refreshment was provided. Extremely disappointing when such big names treat candidates so poorly. By the time my turn came the recruiter was already bored and was in a hurry to leave. The required number of candidates had already been frozen. That day decided never to go for big companies on weekends sheer wastage of time.
