Tech Lead Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Point, PA
Declined Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

The process took 2 days. I interviewed at HCL Technologies (West Point, PA) in December 2011.

Interview

I partook in a "weekend" interview for the job role. They were very courteous to let me know when they would be calling. Only the first interview was all of 10 minutes long asking simple hr questions. The second interview the following day was more or less a repeat of the first, lasting about 30 minutes long. The fact that they did not verify my technical skills was a bit worrying. I was thinking, "If they don't screen very well, then what will my coworkers be like?" Anyway, I thought they weren't interested but the following week they had an offer 10 k less than my asking salary.

Reasons for Declining

While I haven't officially declined it yet, I'm seriously considering it. I'll update this once I've made my decision.

    Interview

    The interviewer had no knowledge of the technologies he was interviewing for. He was reading my resume like a chapter from a book, ans was asking questions like why did you write this line here.
    Later I got to know that he was just a software engineer with no relevant experience in the technologies.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at HCL Technologies (Noida (India)) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Hiring process is very professional as expected.
    1. Written Test
    2. First Technical Discussion
    3. Second Technical Discussion,
    I dont know what is after this round, I was rejected in this round. Though this was a second technical round, there was not much technical in this round. I was given a array to find duplicates to using single loop which I completed and the question that I could not resolve in time was a - there are two buckets of 3 litre and 5 litre and how to fill the 5L bucket with 4L water. It took me time to think and could not finish in expected duration and may be this pushed me out.
    Though there could be another reason, my experience and interest is mostly into web development (I shared this during my discussion) and in my interview invitation e-mail they had just asked for .Net professionals however they were recruiting mainly for Windows based development platform. I don't understand why even big companies cant be clear and specific in their requirement of correct candidature.
