    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HCL Technologies.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly quick. The recruiter gave entirely inaccurate information about how the interview would work. I was told an in-person coding test on a computer followed by a panel interview. What I got instead was just an interview with two team members. They asked a few questions about resume projects, 3 coding questions, and we just wrapped up with my questions. I was on time as well and had to wait over a half hour after the scheduled interview time to begin.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at HCL Technologies (San Francisco, CA (US)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    they scheduled me several times for same day interviews and the interviewer would not even show up or come very late even though they knew I was busy with personal project.

    once they got approval that they want me, they would not even give me a written offer.

    It seems like they want you to be treated like a third class citizen highly disrespectful.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at HCL Technologies in September 2018.

    Interview

    They give you a pen and paper test that has trivial questions related to Java that you can search the answer to in 5 seconds. Rather than testing your programming ability they only test theoretical knowledge. Very poor interview process.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA (US)

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at HCL Technologies (Bellevue, WA (US)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    This was a strange one. To tell you the truth, it's not really an interview
    that they call you to. I was contacted by a recruiter who told me that I was going to
    interview for a Java software developer position, but actually it's a mass hiring event
    and when I got there I found out they were actually hiring for .NET developers.
    There were groups of about 30 people coming in throughout the day, and from what I
    heard there were only about 5 positions available.

    They take you in to do a hand-written
    test, and if you don't score in the top 10% or something like that they won't even talk to you
    (you will not interview). The test everyone was taking when I was there
    was supposedly for .NET (yes I spent the whole week studying Java stuff because of what
    my recruiter told me), but there was not even one .NET question on the test. There was
    one page of SQL questions and one page of general aptitude crap that had little or nothing
    to do with software engineering.

    I waited in their cafeteria with the group for 2 1/2 hours, then they called my name and told
    me (among many others) that I wouldn't be getting an offer. Also, literally every engineer
    I saw working there was Indian, and literally every other person I saw working there that was
    not an engineer was white; you can draw your own conclusions... The test papers where also
    chalked up with typos and improper grammar. From what I've seen I don't think I would want
    to work for this organization.

    Interview Questions

    • Write a SQL statement that gets [3 things] from _______ table and this information,
      sort it by date and group by such and such. What are joins? Explain the various joins
      and how they work. What statement would you use to clear all the data in a table?
      Question about having 3 containers of water and how to measure out 10 gallons from
      what you have. Story problems like "This person is selling oranges.
      She sold 1/2 an orange more than half of what she had, then sold 1/3 of an orange
      from what she had left. Also, she didn't cut any oranges. How many oranges did she
      have to start with?" Pretty ridiculous.   1 Answer
