Hi,
I got an email that I am selected in HCL interview, HR called me after that and talked to me very rudely, asking same details that was in the form at the starting, and finally told me that he can max give me 40 % hike on my present CTC which is 9Lac/annum with an experience of 8 years. I was unable to negotiate because of his rude talking as he didn't allow me to speak and disconnected the call after few minutes, didn't even say as bye before disconnecting 😂.
