    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Got an initial call from HR in which he took my details and also told me base package CTS can offer to me. Their base packages has a range for a particular range of experience. After that he told me that I would be getting the interview call in couple of days. But I got a call after 15-20 days. Interviewer scheduled a Skype interview for PL/SQL developer position. He asked me technical questions from the topics that I had mentioned in the resume. He told me to be very specific and to the point with my answers. Interviewer went on for around 30 mins. He was quite satisfied my answers and also gave positive hints about my further round of interview.

    Second round of interview was a telephonic round and there were two ladies on the conference. They also grilled me on technical questions.Interview went on for around 30 mins.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions.

    Interview Details

    Hiring and interview process was very straight forward and easy. Just a bunch of easy questions. The interview questions was a list of the most simplest questions you can ever ask. I am not sure if I was lucky or unlucky to have such an interviewer. To me it feels like the interviewer has very little knowledge.

    Interview Details

    Applied through the regular walk--in interviews.
    The company, at least in 2010, was in a heavy growth mode. They have been outstripping the competition anyways. So they were looking for a lot of new people, especially those with big company names on their resume (to brag about it). That worked in my favor.
    Interview was mostly normal - usual Java related questions for area. Had one tech round and one HR round. Nothing extra-ordinary there.
