I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Cogent Infotech Corp in September 2011.

Very Easy Interview

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Cogent Infotech Corp in April 2014.

Interview Details – I was contacted by the recruiter after I had applied online on my school's career website. I had a 20 minutes screening interview after a few days.
The questions were basically on my resume and background and there were a few behavioral questions too. He asked about my experience in Java. I had none but was willing to learn because I had ample of coding experience in other languages like C/C++. It was a smooth sailing interview and the interviewer seemed calm and satisfied with my answers.
I unexpectedly got a reject after such a trivial interview. I emailed them and asked for the exact reason, but they never responded.

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Pittsburgh, PA

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Cogent Infotech Corp in November 2012.

Interview Details – It seems like they get a good crop of candidates which makes it very competitive. I had an interview with the HR and then a technical interview. In some cases they do Skype as well. Technical interview was very intense which is not common for service based/consulting companies. I guess that gave a lot of positive vibes. The tech interviewer started off with knowing my background and slowly drilled me with some scenario based questions.

Interview Question – Discuss why Java is/is not platform independent?   Answer Question
