I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Sogeti (Phoenix, AZ).
Interview process was very clear. Technical round(2 on 1), followed by HR and then Meeting with VP.technical round was approximately 45 minutes, HR was 30 minutes and meeting with VP was close to 40 minutes. Technical interview was more about the projects in the resume and questions revolved around the skills mentioned in the resume.
- In Technical Interview, they asked about projects mentioned in the resume, gave few scenarios and asked how would I approach to solving the issue(eg. if you need to code a software from scratch, how would you go about designing the code), Object oriented principles. HR interview was more about what your passion is, what motivates you, what value will you bring to the company other basic questions. Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Sogeti in March 2015.
I was called by a recruiter for a phone screening, then set up an on campus in person interview with the recruiter. I was then invited to a cocktail hour at a restaurant near their office where I mat almost every consultant and the heads of the branch. I then went to a final interview where I had 5 rounds with a number of people in the company. Finally, one of the executives gave me a call and we had about a half hour interview. I was offered the job within a week of my final interview.

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sogeti (Indianapolis, IN) in March 2015.
First, I spoke to an HR representative. After having an overview of the company, I assumed that things went well so I was asked to interview with a peer. The peer interview was a bit more technical and detailed. Following that conversation, I spoke to the hiring manager via phone and then finally we had a face to face meeting.

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sogeti (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.
Human Resource Manager and Manager for getting to know you session, a consultant for technical interview, and the recruiter for reviewing benefits. Each section of interview took about half an hour. And after that, there is treatment for all candidates, which is assumed to be a hidden interview. About 5 days later I received rejection. But some interviewees I know they never get any response.
- Just Java basics, like difference between private and protected, function overload, and other question based on your resume. But Java part is the most important. HR question is general one, like where do you see yourself in 3 years. Answer Question
- No OfferNeutral ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Sogeti in March 2015.
Met with Recruiting team over the phone and was told they weren't sure if they were going to hire or not, but that I "had to meet" the senior executive responsible for the area. Over the following 2-3 weeks I had 3 1-hour phone conversations with this individual during which we did have a rapport, and there seemed to be a fit for the role. There was an occasional mention that he wasn't sure if they would hire for this role or not, but wouldn't provide details on the decision making process. I suspect that I was being interviewed as a possible replacement for an employee who was not performing, and they had not made the decision. The last communication we had was a promise to meet in person the next time this person was in my city location, which was set to be within the next 2-3 weeks. He indicated he makes frequent visits to this location. After that, they went dark, completely, didn't return calls and didn't provide any feedback. Obviously I understand that if there wasn't an opening, or if I wasn't a fit. I am disappointed in how they handled it, however, especially because our last communication was trending toward an in-person meeting. If something had changed, I would have appreciated the courtesy of a call to notify me that I was no longer being considered, especially because of the senior nature of the role in question and the amount of time investment we mutually made into the process. This is not an unusual practice when a recruiter contacts you to discuss a possible role - in fact it is quite common. I have no negative opinion of Sogeti as a result but I do think that truly exceptional companies strive to do better.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sogeti.
Applied through an online service, went to corporate office for interviews, then went to local office for more interviews. Received an offer a few hours later. The whole process was very weird.
- Almost no technical questions whatsoever. Very laid back. Answer Question

The initial communication from their campus recruiter was very friendly and professional. We met at a coffee shop and spoke about my collegiate experiences and what I was looking for in a career. The in-office visit consisted of three interviews (tech, HR, and from an account executive). The tech interview went over what technologies I learned in school and how I've applied them in projects. HR interview went over my resume, GPA, coursework, etc. The sales interview went over behavioral questions (fit interview). Great overall experience.
