    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions.

    Interview Details

    Just Telephonic followed by Client interview I was asked generic question some around domain and some around previous/ current work experience. Nothing there difficult to be handled. The HR guys are tough negotiator. If you getting into an old account then mostly salary negotiation will be cut throat. One good thing is no false promise, atleast to me. This is an organized body shop .

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions.

    Interview Details

    Initially I received a call from someone from Technical team asking if I am ready for Skype interview but I was not informed by anyone that there is going to be interview. Also the person did not tell what position it was for.

    On the day of interview I was asked questions on data warehousing which I was not aware of as I was thinking it was just a functional testing interview.
