    Interview Details

    Total 3 rounds of interview

    First round we had a written test on Java/J2EE/Hibernet/Struts/Spring. I think they are placing cut off based on number of people attending the interview at my time there was around 500 people.

    Second round was technical round where interviewer was concentrated on basics of all the technologies I have worked on.

    Third round was formal HR discussion about packages an etc.

    Recruited through walk-in but had to clear a written test followed by two rounds of interview. The second one was a client specific grueling round.

    Expect no plush comfort during the interview, they are very raw people. Took a long time for the background check and the joining got postponed many times.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at HCL Technologies in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    After arriving on time, there was wait of 2 hrs for which they gave me lame excuse that the interviewers have not yet arrived. when they started my interview, it was 12 in the afternoon.
    Interview consisted of three rounds. This was for C++ with linux exp.

    First technical round:
    Implement a class with copy constructor, overload = operator, reverse iterate a linked list, explain virtual keyword, static_cast, dynamic_cast, . Strangely, the guy who interviewed me was pretty dumb and he had no idea of even STL(weird!)

    Second round:
    This was interviewed by a team lead. He was conducting a stress interview and asked lame questions from my previously written code. I just kept my cool :)

    HR round:
    Nothing but negotiating my expected salary.The salary that she offered was a joke and almost laughed.

    My feedback:
    If you are talented and are in a good product company, don't attend service company like these. Waste of time. I regret giving it a shot just to kill some time on a holiday.

    interviewed at HCL Technologies in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    i had attended a Off campus drive of HCL which was conducted by Aspiring minds on 6th and 8th dec 2014 at SMK Fomra Institute of technology,Chennai .Little did i know about the cruelty and harsh reality i was about to face then.They conducted an AMCAT test on 6th dec which i found very easy and cleared it without much of a problem.The next round which was a technical round was about to be conducted on Monday. I went there early and was waiting for my chance .But it was not difficult to notice that some people were given preferential treatment by the ASPIRING MINDS employees.Some people were called early and those people were clearly made to go the one particular room of interviewers.As i was watching it unfold in front of me . I did not have any doubts or anything.As luck turned out to be , i was also assigned to the same room .I was confident in myself as i had good knowledge and even work experience where as other people did not have any.So i go in and explain about myself and where i studied,where i lived and all those stuffs,then i was asked about my project which i was able to explain in detail .Meanwhile i was well versed in SQL and R Prograaming which i had clearly mentioned on my resume.But i was waiting for them to ask me anything related to technical .But nothing not a single technical question they ask,not even a single simple syntax.For everyone over there ,the results were immediately announced whether they were selected or not .The earlier group of students who had been particularly brought to this room by the aspiring employees were told immediately that they were selected but for me alone they asked me to wait,In fact i was the only one who was asked to wait.I was little perturbed for making me to wait so long and i noticed that only very few had been rejected in my room that being the reason because all the preferential candidates were brought here and after 2 hours of waiting ,they tell me that i'am not selected and i was mentally broken to say the least and when i asked the aspiring employee the reason for not selecting me .He told my communication skills were good but my technical skills were bad it seems.I really do not know how they managed to find my technical skill was bad without even asking a single question.I just found the whole thing to be a farce and spam .It felt as if they just conducted my interview for fun .I just wasted a day of my life and my day's pay by attending this interview.I cant blame the HCL company but the Aspiring minds company which help them recruit people continues in the same way,then the company HCL is not going to get better if not worse.I just hope some people realise that they are mentally scarring a student and pulling down an individual when things like this happen.I can give one advice,If you find an HCL interview conducted by Aspiring Minds ,dont attend it if u dont have any referrals or you know someone over here ,It's just a complete a waste of time and if u know anyone over there.Just go and attend for fun,You can surely get placed in HCL.
