Hi Guys !!!!
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
It started at around 12:30 pm
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 by 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
It started at around 3:45 pm
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 was called at 4:15 pm
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 ?
2: What r objects? Explain its uses
3: What is polymorphism ? What is Inheritance ? Give a real life example of both
4: What is Abstraction ?
5: What is function overriding ?
6: What is LAN , WAN , SAN with examples
7: Write an SQL query using Select statement

I answered them

Me: Thank you Sir It was a 30 minutes interview I was satisfied by my interview and was hoping to get selected for HR round
And yes , my name was 1st in the HR list and so I was called within 15 minutes for the HR Interview
Third & Final Round-> HR Interview
I was called at 5:05 pm
There was a mam taking the interview and I entered the room

Mam : Yaa sure
The HR questions were as follows
1: Family background

3: What do u think about the aptitude paper?

6: What if I send u abroad ?
Me : Still I dont have any problem
7: What r your weakness ?
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
10: If you were given a project in HCL , can you do it ?
Me : Yes mam , I can and I will do it

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
