    Informed me to be a Face To Face SCHEDULED Interview but it turned out to be walk-in kind, with more than 200 candidates we were made to wait till 2pm from 9am. So I just moved out without any interview. Time waste

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bengaluru (India)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at HCL Technologies (Bengaluru (India)) in January 2019.

    Interview

    I applied through a job portal and within 2 days was called for face to face. I have over 12 years experience and was a Team Lead at the last job. This was for the new HCL Products Lab at Jigni. I wouldn't have applied to this company had it been for services. The senior candidates were sent to the interview directly (juniors probably took an aptitude test).

    The interview was a disaster. I should have known looking at the wry smile on the previous candidate's face as he came out. It was conducted by two obviously junior level engineers. Their English was atrocious, but more importantly they kept asking pretty basic coding questions and never seemed like ramping up to questions suitable to my experience level, like system design and architecture. Their lack of experience showed in how they wanted to know implementation details of C++ vtable which is not a standard and no sane engineer would care about the nitty gritties, unless they are writing a compiler, and the JD didn't need that . Then they asked CS textbook questions that only recent graduates could try. Worst was the riddle question disguised as a system thread question. I refused to answer these silly questions and the interview ended, Further, I had a resume filled with interesting things (having worked on GUI and graphics of many scientific and engineering products, created cross language framework etc) but none of them was discussed at all.

    I complained to the HR contact and she assured me that my resume will be considered for other products. I am not banking on it but wanted to point out that at least the HR was gracious enough.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at HCL Technologies (Bengaluru (India)) in March 2019.

    Interview

    I came for interview, then I waited for 3 hr and
    no interview happened later when I spoke to my contact person.
    They forgot to schedule it. After searching my profile,
    they told me to leave since I am not matching their requirement.
    I clearly asked for the profile before acknowledging the interview.

    So disappointed.
