    Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at HCL Technologies.

    Interview

    Call by the recruiter, followed by a phone conversation with the hiring manager and an onsite interview. Finally an interview with the customer. Pretty straight forward technical questions. Salary negotiations were a bit sticky. Requested salary was denied but for some reason they came back to it after a week. Not sure what happened there but since I already accepted the offer I had no problem taking the salary that I asked for originally.

We were supposed to do a vocal call but I called then no answer.. then the interviewer rescheduled for next monday and refused to answer some of my questions. they trying to find remote people to move from coast to coast on a simple no garantee contract and dont even pay for moving expenses. It is obviously a pro outsourcing company. I dont like that .

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redmond, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at HCL Technologies (Redmond, WA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    If you have real-world professional web development experience and did not recently graduate with a bunch of programming knowledge from college that you will never use, I wouldn't bother with this interview process. Don't waste your Saturday. I ended up just walking out to go home and work on my current ASP.NET MVC project.

    I was told there would be a .NET/C# exam by one of their recruiters. Instead, it was one of those pointless exams asking old college questions about contiguous integers, and pouring different amounts of liquid from various jars to reach the desired amount. I'm surprised that they didn't ask me why manhole covers are round. Apparently they think they are Google. As soon as I saw the test, I knew it was a joke. If you want to see how "creative" I am, look at the work I have produced professionally and ask me questions about those projects.

    Red flags I ignored: 1. They wouldn't even work with my salary requirements. 2. Saturday interview. 3. Bad reviews from current/former employees.

    If you recently graduated college and have no professional coding/engineering experience, this might be right for you to get your foot in the door, but I would be wary, the employee reviews are still bad.

    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at HCL Technologies (Bellevue, WA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied from CraigsList and got an email/phone call the next day asking to come in on the weekend for a technical exam. The exam was a paper exam with ~30 questions. There were about ~75 people all taking the same exam. The exam was all multiple choice and even though I was applying for the Java Software Development Engineer, the majority of the questions were not java related. I was told 15min later that I did not have a qualifying score to move onto the next round. The pay was too small to begin with so I took the exam half-heartedly. I briefly passed the work area to the exam room and the work area is completely filled with cubicles that nearly reached the ceilings, blocking out everything.
