    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Cognos in May 2008.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was pretty fair but rather lengthy. Phone screening led to HR interview and then second set of phone screening. After that it took a while, and then face to face interviews were scheduled onsite. That took about another few days. That interview was across management and technical team. There were couple 1-1 interviews and some group panel interviews. It was interesting interview as there were some scenarios laid out for me to do some hands-on work to prove my knowledge, skills, and background. Overall very good experience.
