    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 Details

    The interviewer had no knowledge of the technologies he was interviewing for. He was reading my resume like a chapter from a book, ans was asking questions like why did you write this line here.
    Later I got to know that he was just a software engineer with no relevant experience in the technologies.

    Interview Details

    There will be a Written examination at first followed by a Technical Interview. Most of the people get screened out at the first round itself. Be very confident in the interviews. And then if you are clearing these two, you'll be taken for a HR interview.
