HCL Interview Experience 3
Name: Shivam Adhiban
College: ITM University
Branch: Computer Science
Type of Interview: Off-campus Interview
I had applied for the interview in HCL. I was a little worried about the interview as the HCL interview is quite lengthy as well as difficult. To prepare for the interview, I used PrepInsta’s question material where I fortunately found every bit of detail about the whole HCL interview process.
It was an off-Campus interview where all the necessary information was to be taken from web. It was a rigorous interview process with a number of rounds followed by a face to face interview.
Before face to face interview, there were several rounds in which Written test was one of them.
The test was 65 minutes long where I had to crack 5 sections of questions related to Quantitative Aptitude, Logical Reasoning, and Verbal English, Computer Programming, General Knowledge. Some of the high weightage questions related to the above topics are discussed below:

After clearing written test, i moved towards next rounds of HCL Interview. Before the interview there was a Group Discussion round. In group discussion round several groups containing 8-10 members were created by the HCL interviewer. We were 8 members in my group discussion round.
After group discussion round, we have to wait for sometime till the results were declared. After the results we moved towards the next interview round. The HCL Interview round is divided into 2 sections-
- HCL Interview- Technical
- HCL Interview- HR
HCL Interview- Technical
Technical Interview is basically to check the technical knowledge of the student, that whether is capable for the desired profile or not. There were 3 people in the panel at a time which made me nervous. Few questions were from the aptitude. General questions of HCL history were asked to me by one of the panel members followed by others. Some of them are listed below:
- What do you understand by Functional dependency?
- What do you mean by Node?
- What is an operating system?
- What is virtual memory?
At the end of the HCL Technical Interview they asked me about my final year project, which iclude-
- Tell me about your final year project
- Why did you choose this project to be your final year project?
HCL Interview- HR
The HR Manager of the company asked me some basic questions-
- Why do you want this job?
- Where do you see yourself in the future or in the coming years?
- What are your short term and long term goals?
- Why should we hire you?
The HCL interview went for about 15 to 20 minutes and after that I was out of the cabin. They told me to give a confirmation mail if I get selected for one of the positions in the company. After 2 weeks, I received an auto-generated email from HCL declaring that I am selected for the position of trainee in the field of Software Engineer in the company. I received my joining letter after 3 months.
