    Senior Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Cogent Infotech Corp.

    Interview Details

    This company does not have its act together, I interviewed over the phone for a mid level sales role- seemed ok initially however my expectations were low. The overall salary and commission were never fully discussed (they agreed to a range but my sense is the owner never wanted to pay the basic market rate for this position).

    Overall a bad experience- the sales manager was quite inexperienced and not terribly professional- seemed to be in over his head and the owner of company lacked integrity.
    I would be very wary-m not worth your time. made an offer but withew it - no real explanation... I suspect they want someone very green with no experience and pay is way below market rate.

    Data Management Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a day - interviewed at Cogent Infotech Corp in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    Hired from resume. Was asked questions about past experience managing data. Had previously been a data management specialist for another industry. Expected to be more for the interview process. The operations involved were simple but I was never allowed to do anything on my own and they wanted to draw out training as long as possible. Would only allow 8 hours training per week. Seemed to be attempting to MAKE me fail so that the girl from India could have a reason to have her Visa renewed.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. 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.

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Cogent Infotech Corp.

    Interview Details

    I got a phone interview two weeks ago. It is about relative project and work experience what you have done, and a varied of behavior questions such as what the different between in-school project and internship? What do you think about individual work and teamwork? Something like that. At least, the recruiter will ask you to rate professional java level for your self.

    Detailed technical interview process
    Soft Skill interview was meaningful.
    Please detail all your interest, they definitely keep a record and try to fulfill, or else they will tell you that they cannot do it.
    It was not a typical consulting company interview

    I applied through college or university. 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.
