8000 Unemployed Youth Turn Up In Shockingly Long Queue For HCL Walk-In

STORY MOOD : TECHNOLOGY AND HEALTH Mood




According to a report in Bangalore Mirror:

1,200 posts and 8,000-plus candidates lining up on the not-so-broad Velankani Drive in E-City. The post on offer — Engineer Trainee — came with an annual package of Rs 2.75 lakh. The candidates invited were 2014/15 grads of information technology, electrical and electronics engineers, electronic and communication engineers and BTech. The interview was scheduled for 10am to 2pm, and when the company saw the queue starting to pile up around 7am, it began the written test at 9am. Around 800 took the test, which is when, around 9.30am, the company took stock of the situation. What is horrifying about this whole ordeal is that after waiting in this crazy queue all day, most of the candidates were sent back without an interview!

Sajid B from Bihar said, “This is not the way to conduct an interview for thousands of unemployed youths who stood there for hours thinking their turn would come in some time. Within two hours the whole crowd was scattered and it was utter chaos when police arrived and asked us to leave as the interview got cancelled.” A spokesperson of HCL Technologies Ltd at the venue said, “We did not expect so many people to drop in today (Sunday) for the walk-in recruitment drive. We had to stop the interview process and ask the jobseekers to drop in their resumes with us.”
