    Cloud Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at HCL Technologies (London, England (UK)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Several phone calls with the recruiter regarding the salary on offer being too low, then they came back and offered a 25% increase in salary and an interview. Spent the first 10 minutes of the telephone interview having technical problems, with the phone call from India, then once that was sorted out, had a 20 minute discussion with the Interviewer about cloud migration strategies,

    I was not asked one single question about my CV, or about me. The interview ended with the Interviewer telling me that I would hear feedback with two days, which never happened. I tried on several occasions to get the recruiter to get feedback about the Interview from HCL, but nothing. Since then four other recruitment companies have been given the same job specifications, again offering the low salary.

    All in all, I wasted 2 days of my life, dealing with recruiters for HCL, never again. My advice to HCL is that if you really need a Cloud Architect that you need to improve your recruitment process and to employ better interviewers.
