I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions in February 2012.
Interview Details – 3 rounds of interviews-final round with the client for whom I'm currently working
Interview Question – Nothing unexpected as such Answer Question
The process took a day - interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions in September 2009.
Interview Details – Was contacted through a recruiter, Wolftec, that outlined a completely ridiculous interview process that included included phone interviews, 1:1 interviews, panel interviews, then I would have to submit my past three years w2's so Cognizant could confirm my salary. Wolftec kept pointing out that this was Cognizant's process, which rang a little false to me. I was then contacted by a recruiter from Cognizant, who declined my credentials. I then sent a follow up email addressing the recruiters concerns and I was granted a 1:1 interview/tech screen, passed that fine, and then flew to another city for a 1:1 panel interview. Everyone I spoke to from Cognizant was very friendly, didn't really discuss a lot of the job stuff so much and I thought I made a good presentation of myself but a few days later I was told that Cognizant decided to pass. Easy interview, probably should have steered the conversations back to why I would have been a great candidate. Never received a reason why I was declined. Experience with the company was positive, but headhunter get's a check-minus.
