Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Sogeti (Baltimore, MD) in May 2015.

Interview

I was recruited based on a mutual connection and immediately offered an interview with minimal review of my resume. Strike one. Before my interview, I found out they had hired another recruit the day after their interview. Strike two. Finally, in my interview I was able to discern that Sogeti is merely a staff augmentation company looking to bill clients. Strike three. The business model is built on working with "small to mid size local companies" but this IT we are talking about - implementing cloud based solutions. If you are seeking high quality IT work, you need not to consider location. The notion that those are the clients they target is silly, as those are the only clients they can get. Stay far away.

    Interview

    An initial phone screen with a HR rep, got invited to the office. Chat with the same rep for over an hour about the company. Then spoke to a developer who wasn't very friendly. He just didn't seem like he was having a good day and it rubbed on me.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted within a week or so. A phone interview was scheduled and the interviewer called at the expected time. We discussed the company and its operations before addressing the job itself. At this point, it was mutually determined that their office was not a good fit for me, but that my skills might fit the needs of another Sogeti office. Overall, a positive experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Sogeti (Dayton, OH).

    Interview

    I applied through my university's career website and got a call about a week later. I did a phone interview then went into HQ for an interview with the execs. It was nice to see the execs cared about meeting prospective employees fresh out of college. But the actual interviews with them were revealing. My supposed 'technical interview' was with an executive who had not done programming in years. He asked me to explain what Github was. This is very ironic considering the 5 hours I spent there they preached about adapting to new technologies and challenges. I didn't get an offer from them but I think it's because I've never programmed in java. I was frankly surprised I got as far as I did considering everything they build is in java. PS some programs (like the one I was applying for) require you to do a two week bootcamp in Dayton. They don't explain this up front. There is nothing to do in Dayton.

    Interview

    A couple phone interviews that were pretty much small talk. In person interview went well until I was paired (unplanned) with a developer to chat. The person was in a very foul mood and wasn't friendly.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sogeti (Denver, CO) in September 2012.

    Interview

    I was first contacted by a recruiter through my University's database. Unfortunately, I had moved but I went forward with the phone interview and found out that they had a branch location nearby and was put in touch with the recruiter here. I had a 1:1 interview locally. Culture-wise it felt very corporate and the benefits levels seemed rather dubious. You're ranked by percentile with several different criteria by an automated HR system. It sounded like one or two of the variables were reserved for manager reviews, but the others such as billable client hours are all done automatically. Perhaps that works, perhaps it doesn't depending on the project, I can't say. But something for you to think about.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Sogeti (Charlotte, NC) in June 2012.

    Interview

    The process started out well with the internal recruiter that I found on LinkedIn, she provided information and was quick to reply to emails. I was scheduled for a phone interview with a project manager who indicated that he would not be making a decision but simply evaluate me. The interviewer was not engaged and seemed to want to end the call almost immediately. He did not ask me about my skills or technical knowledge. He did not even give me the opportunity to ask him any questions. I wrote the prospect of working for Sogeti after the interview; between the reviews on this website and the interview I decided my talents can be used by a more serious IT company.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Sogeti (Dallas, TX) in April 2011.

    Interview

    I got this interview via a career fair on my campus. I was told on the day of the interview they would be in touch the following week. Long story short after a month of "we'll let you know next week", I stopped calling and never heard from them again. The interview consisted of three parts; only one of them consisted of technical questions. These were easy, generic OOP and SQL concepts. Overall the experience was very pleasant, low key, and friendly... I'm rather disappointed that the recruiter would not return my calls.
