I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions in January 2013.

Interview Details – Worst Hiring process I have ever seen particularly [ISIS section of Bangalore]
They just announce walk-ins to advertise / create hype.

I know many people who have been told that their technical interview is cleared.
HR will let us fill Application form and after that they will inform that we will get a call for HR round.
Thats the end, nobody calls for next process.No reply for your mails from HR.
This happened twice to me and to some of my friends.

Interview Question – Nothing much difficult atleast for me   View Answer
