- Accepted Offer
Career Fair, then interview or just referral typically an offer will occur about 3 weeks after the initial process is started. Interview was long about 4 hours with a decent amount of technical questions.
Helpful (2)Accepted OfferEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Sogeti (Cincinnati, OH).
Basically did high level overview for you and wanting to know what you can offer. They have an hiring manager that you will first interview with. Then you will probably meet up with employees similar to you.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Sogeti in May 2014.
I interviewed with a recruiter, two hiring managers and a technical peer. Nothing out of the ordinary here and everyone was friendly and nice. When my salary requirements were higher than the first position I applied for, the recruiter even got me an interview for a better position.
- Nothing unexpected. Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
The negotiation process on the offer really left a bad taste in my mouth. First, the hiring manager lowballed me, even though the company seemed very interested in me and I told them I had other offers in the works. Then when I said I wanted to make a counteroffer, I got silence for a few days followed by "Take it or leave it." So I started to move on to other options. Days later, I get a another offer from them, which is still too low. I decline it. Days later they make me yet another offer. Looks like "take it or leave it" was a bluff. Clearly by refusing to listen to my counteroffer, they were trying to keep the control in their court and offer me as little as they could get away with. Not a professional move for a company who was clearly interested in me. A waste of their time and mine, and now I'm left with a bad feeling about their negotiation processes and their ability to make a fair offer.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sogeti (Austin, TX) in May 2014.
Very laid back 2-3 step process. HR recruiters were so nice and welcoming and made interview a very pleasant experience and truly what sold me with the company along with competitive pay and benefits.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sogeti (Columbus, OH) in May 2014.
I met an on-campus recruiter and had a very positive interaction. Over a month later I was contacted to schedule an on-campus interview, which took place some three weeks later. It was short- about 20 minutes and covered my background and entry-level questions about consulting- what is consulting? what is the process like and what does it entail? etc
- Give me a time when improper requirements discovery resulted in scope creep of a project Answer Question
Very easy- they offer the same starting deal to all new hires which is very reasonable.
- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sogeti in May 2014.
Long and tedious. Very relaxed and enjoyable.Met a lot of great people and they were all very friendly. Phone interviews were much more relaxed than expected and flowed like normal conversation.
- What is the SDLC? Answer Question
- Accepted Offer
My hiring process came as a referral of another Sogeti employee, so it was short and direct.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sogeti (Houston, TX) in April 2014.
I applied online as a new graduate looking for a full-time positioin around March 26 and got a call from a Corporate Recruiter on April 1. We discussed the role and expectations of a Sogeti Consultant. He was mostly interested in my interests and whether I would like to interview as an Applications Development role or a Testing Services role. After chatting for about 15 minutes, he emailed me a date and time for the next phone interview with a different Recruiter. The very same day he also emailed me a Skills Test where you have to code in C#. I had the phone interview with a different Recruiter the very next day. He was also interested in my interests and the skills I had for the position. This interview focused more on the candidate where I was asked hypothetical questions pertaining to situations QA/Testing analysts would encounter on a daily basis. There weren't any behavioral questions. After speaking for about 45 minutes, he also explained to me the benefits of the company. I was then asked what day I would be free for an in office interview. I chose to interview a few days later. After the conservation ended, he emailed the details of the in-office interview a day after our phone conversation. The in-office interview consisted of speaking with HR and the Unit Manager in the Houston office. I spoke with HR for about 30 minutes. She asked me the typical behavior questions: 1. Tell me about yourself. 2. What are your strengths? 3. Explain and give more details on some points on your resume. After the questions, she explained the benefits of Sogeti and what the process was for new graduates. This interview was more set as a conversation between the two of us. She didn't ask many questions, but I believe we were expected to ask them questions. We had a nice conversation about our experiences and background so prepare questions that you would like to ask, especially about Sogeti! She then took me the Unit Manager. He again asked me to "Tell me about yourself" which I gladly did as he did not have the chance to look at my resume yet. He then asked me about my interests and what class I enjoyed the most in school. The only question he asked after that was giving me a scenario of about 5 tables ( Product, Order, Salesperson, etc.) and gave me the question, What product does Tim sell the most?, and asked me how I would figure the SQL statement that would produce the answer. He proposed this question to me after I told him that I was interested in SQL. I believe I sopke to him for about an hour and it was mostly me asking questions to him after he asked those 4 questions which went rather quickly. So again, have intelligent questions prepared! After about 2 weeks, I was told that the Houston candidate cap had been filled. I was then asked if I was willing to work in other cities which I agreed too. I gave her the cities I was open too and she explained to me that she would pass this information on to the other recruiters and that they will contact me if there is an open position. I was contacted the next day via phone with a full-time offer from HR. I had a few days to think about it.
- The Unit Manager gave a scenario with imaginary tables and asked me how would I go about solving this SQL problem. Answer Question
I actually didn't have to negotiate. After I spoke with HR on the phone, he raised my salary slightly when he sent me an email of my offer. I was quite surprised but happy.

I applied in-person. I interviewed at Sogeti (Omaha, NE) in April 2014.
The process was efficient, transparent, and what you'd expect. Interviewers were prepared, cordial, etc. - again what you'd expect from a consulting services organization. Feedback was provided promptly - again what you'd expect.
- What do you see your 30/60/90 day plan being if you get this role? Answer Question
