HCL TECHNOLOGIES PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 01 MAR 2007 - KOLKATA
This is Sourish from MCKV Institute of Engineering, I am going to share my experience about the HCL Technologies Campusing procedure which took place in our college on 1st March 2007. It was an ON Campus. It took 2 days for the whole process to end
First Round - Aptitude - 35 Apti questions + 20 Technical questions
The Aptitude part was quite tough as most of the problems were in the form of puzzles
[PLEASE NOTE: There are negative marks as well, sometimes they dont apply the negative marking if the performance on the whole is not so good], so answer your questions accordingly.
Make sure that you tick only those on which u r confident. The English questions were quite easy. There were some small passages and u have to answer some questions from those passages Arranging the sentences in perfect order were also there in the paper,
[They gave 60 mins for Aptitude section and took the papers, After 5 mins they gave us the Technical paper which was to be solved in 15 mins]. The Technical part was a bit easy and I managed to answer 16 out of 20 correctly
[Tips : Try to go through the whole test paper first and find which questions can you solve confidently, because sometimes most of the easy are placed at the last, or in the middle, so dont get panic if the first question is too difficult]
About 130 students gave the aptitude paper and 91 were selected for the next round and I was one of them
Second Round - Technical Interview
The selected candidates were divided into two panels, Panel A and Panel B. My name was the third in Panel B So as soon as I cleared the Aptitude round my name was called within 30 minutes, I went inside the interview hall
Me : Good evening Sir, may I have the seat ?
Sir : Sit down Sourish. May I have your CV ?
Me : Sure Sir [ and I handed over my CV to him] [At that moment he took out a form and asked me to fill it]
Sir : Sourish please introduce yourself
Me : [I started introducing myself and chatted a lot on my extra curricular activities, I also chatted about cricket for a while as I had written that playing cricket was my hobby]
Sir : Why u chose IT as your career line
Me : Blah Blah
Then he asked me many Technical Questions which are as follows
1: What is class ?

There was a mam taking the interview and I entered the room. The HR questions were as follows
1: Family background
2: Why MCKV ? [ MCKV - my college]
3: What do u think about the aptitude paper?

6: What if I send u abroad ?
Me : Still I dont have any problem

Me : I am afraid of spiders Mam [ suddenly a funny environment was created]
[Tip : Try to make the conversation as much lively as possible and whatever you speak always speak it loud and clear]

Me : C, JAVA, Data structures mam
9: If you were given a project in HCL, can you do it ?
Me : Yes mam, I can and I will do it
Mam: Ok Thank you Sourish
Me : Thank you Mam
It took 15 minutes and I was fully satisfied by my HR interview But now the real test had begun for me, I had to wait for a full one day to know the results The next day at around 8:45 pm the whole process ended. Out of 91 students 59 cleared the Technical round and out of 59 students 35 students were finally selected and by GOD's grace I was among those 35 students, after one sleepless night and the tensed next day I got a sigh of relief by hearing my name as soon as it was announced
Now I am a part of HCL Technologies, And I am proud to be called as an HCLite !!!! Believe in yourself and believe in GOD and success will come in your way
BEST OF LUCK
