    Technical Lead Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at HCL Technologies.

    Interview Details

    Having an experience of more than 7 years, I got a call from a recruiter for a tech lead position. I was made to go through the walk-in process, which was a turn off. Anyways proceeded with it. The first written test was of 30 mins and 3 very simple questions were asked. But the written test checkers are severely technical deficient and don't check the solutions by actually coding them. I have written questions in the next section.

    Interview Questions
    • 1. reversing a linked list - didn't bother to write down the recursive solution, a single iteration is enough too(if we take pointer to pointer to head).
      2. singleton pattern implementation. nothing wrong in that.
      3. difference between const char* p & char const *p

    Lead Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at HCL Technologies.

    Interview Details

    I applied from HCL career site, to my surprise, I got a call from HR within 2-3 days for scheduling a telephonic round. I got it scheduled in the next week, and around 40 minutes of technical questions (all average questions) were asked to me.
    Next I was asked to arrive for a f2f round in Noida office.
    The f2f round was preceded by a written round which asked for 2 programming questions (involving data structures), I did one very well, the second one was half done.
    After 2-3 hours, I was called for the interview. The interview was first going in a right pace, me answering each and every questions and the interviewer looked very satisfied, but then after 15-20 minutes, the guy who took my telephonic interview came up in the cabin and both had a quick chat.
    The previous interviewer went away and this guy started with the programming problems done, logic etc. He somehow proved that my logic was not very good for the problem imposed. I almost agreed to that.
    Later, he asked some networking questions, I had no idea about. So, Overall, this guy looked un-impressed, and with a note of sadness I had to leave the venue with a message that "if you got selected, the HR will contact you".
    I felt real bad about how I couldn't make it and have to study a lot.
    But..but...but...
    after 2-3 weeks, I got a call from HR. She told me nothing about my interview, just asked about my notice period and hung the call up. Again, till next 1-2 week, no communication.
    Later, I got one congratulation e-mail from them for my selection. I was not very happy, but very very surprised.
    I sent them all the docs, later the HR person called me up for salary part, and they were offering way below my current CTC, when I asked if there is any negotiation, he said no. I felt dejected, but politely rejected the offer.
    Next day, he again called me up for my last expected salary, he seemed ready to turn up at my words, but I didn't accept the offer.

    Interview Questions
    • not difficult any, in fact I was not prepared to that extent   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining
