    This is the company ladies and gentlemen where recruitment HR behaves like they are doing some big favor on you and no other place on earth exists where a person can work.
    They are giving serious competition to JP Morgan on how worst a company can go on recruitment process .
    I never applied for Cognizant but got call from HR and without checking my availability he scheduled the interview(this was before he gave me call). Gave reasons like managers are too busy
    So I said ok, I will make time for the interview which was supposed to happen over phone call and was waiting for the call.
    I didn't get any call from the interviewer at the scheduled time, I contacted and came to know that interviewer had no idea that my interview is scheduled.
    Then HR called me again and without checking my availability or asking about it he was giving me instruction on(I am doing a big favor tone) rescheduled interview and telling me how managers are so busy and that is the only time which is available.
    My suggestion is think of this company only if you don't have any other option otherwise don't waste your time. Their behavior is completely unprofessional.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions.

    Interview Details

    Single Round which is technical round in Java and Hibernate. More questions from Hibernate were thrown. Questions from Core Java were less but tricky. For experienced people, basics must be strong like OOPs concepts, Wrapper classes. More importantly Collections are the toughest part in the interview process. Questions from collections can be more tricky. Must be ready to face that.

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions.

    Interview Details

    For this process more than 300+ candidates attended and the 1st round was "Just a minute" and it was quite easy and they wear checking only the basic communication skills and the second round was "AMCAT" Exam which is a Online Exam where English, Quantitative Ability, Logical Ability and Basic Accounts questions are asked. But after the exam they need to reveal the results but they said the short listed candidates will be mail for the next rounds but no one got mail who attended the interview. I am very disappointed by this, they need to reveal the results as soon as the exams is completed so that we will get prepared for the next rounds.

    • " AMCAT" Exam was little bit difficult but we can clear it easily   Answer Question
