HCL Technologies Interview Experience - GKM College Of Engineering Nov 6th 2014 @ Chennai
I was like in an oscillation whether to go or not to the Chennai, why because of am at Bangalore. Most of them are suggested just to give a try instead of roaming here. On 4th November night boarded to Chennai bus and in the morning I reached to Chennai. As usual done with all my routine and dressed up with the kind of formal dress but not exactly formal.
On 5th November at the time of 9 AM reached to GKM College, there it was of around 1800 people. Finally all my hopes went down. Decided that, at least to come here will attend and go. After 3 hours of waiting in the College, they called me for the 1st round of interview. But, it was AMCAT round.
First round sections is:
- Technical (Not exactly don't what I have answered everything is inky pinky answer).
- Verbal (Very difficult but I had answered well).
- Quantz (Very easy).
- Logical (Easy and very confident).
Done with first round and they said results will be announcing at the time of 6pm in the evening. But, am very strongly knows that I won't clear, why because of technical section). At the time of 5 pm reached to Chennai bus stand to get back to Bangalore. I clearly know that I won't clear. I was so bored at the time of 5.55pm, so I have decided to switch on the data to chat with my friends. There its comes one more miracle, its mail from AMCAT that I have cleared the first round and told me to report by the next day at the time of 8 AM. (There it started my cloud nine, Thank God).
On 6th November:
Again, reached at 8 AM, as usual made me to sit for two hours along with HCL Presentation. But, Presentation was good.
Waiting, waiting, waiting Finally it's my call for technical round.
