I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions in January 2011.

Interview Details – Initial interviews were done over the phone with HR and then with someone from the hiring department. The in-person interview process was very streamlined. I interviewed with four people during the morning - one after the other - some on technical aspects of the role, while others had a more business focus. There were tests performed to determine how well i can solve problems. Overall, the interviewers were very knowledgeable and pleasant.

Interview Question – There were some questions to determine the approach to solving a problem. There were no right or wrong answers, they just wanted to see if there was a logical approach to finding a solution.   Answer Question
