Business Development Manager Interview

Business Development Manager
Toronto, ON

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at HCL Technologies.

Interview Details Contacted by a recruiter for this position who detailed out the requirements & expectations. 2 rounds of interviews one by Sales Manager and the next by Global head of new business SVP level. This was followed by a chat with HR manager. My perception of the company grew progressively engaged; good understanding of the market and what it takes to succeed. HR function moved fast to make an offer after the process.

Interview Question – It's not the most difficult question, but be prepared to walk through instances of one of your largest opportunity or deal worked on, and articulate how your worked to win   Answer Question

Systems Engineer Interview

Systems Engineer
Chennai (India)

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at HCL Technologies in August 2014.

Interview Details The process was the worst, they send mails to inbox as if it is a scheduled interview but it'll have 500 candidates a virtual walk-in!
Then they'll ask you to write a written test consisting on silly basic question
You feel funny and fill the white sheet anyway
You submit paper (might drink a glass of water) and results will be out in seconds, criteria could be that you must be from a low tier firm so you'd accept any offer also some good answer

Reason for Declining – Offer was too low and off industry standard

Systems Analyst Interview

Systems Analyst

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at HCL Technologies.

Interview Details It was an on-campus recruitment at a famous college in Bangalore. There was an initial aptitude test to clear, followed by an in-person interview which was mostly based on the details on my resume and some basic HR related questions which was pretty simple to deal with. Since they were mass recruiters, the interviewer seemed pretty chilled out and eased me through the process.

Interview Question – Honestly, the in-person interview was pretty simple. The aptitude test requires some preparation.   Answer Question

Senior Software Engineer Interview

Senior Software Engineer
Chennai (India)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at HCL Technologies.

Interview Details I got a mail from the internal HR team and it was stated that it is a scheduled walk in interview. But after reaching the campus only realised that many people had came and it was walk in. Interview took almost my whole day and it was not that worthy experience.

Initially had a technical interview where I was asked few basic questions from my day to day activities. Then a manageral interview. The guy seems to be bit techy and asked few techy questions. Later the world's best idiotic HR took my HR round of interview. He asked me to join the company for a package lesser that what I was drawing by that time. I just came out without replying him. After a week I got call from them again and negotiated for certain package. The HR who called this time was so kind and understood my situation. Then they have released the offer in the same day itself.

Interview Question – Nothing like that, I am from mainframe technology   Answer Question
