    Big Data Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Atlanta, GA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    TAG team is totally inefficient and not taking anything serious. Each stage in the interview process takes a long time and finally the project is no longer with Cognizant... this is one of the reason why they have so many resources on beach.

    Interview Questions

    • Generic BigData and Java concepts? They actually don't measure you in depth on any technology   Answer Question

    Sales - Insurance Vertical Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Atlanta, GA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    What a nightmare!!! The most unorganized, unprofessional group of people I've ever dealt with!! STAY AWAY!!! Time after time, my scheduled phone interview was cancelled last minute, or the interviewer would just stand me up--happened at least 8 or 9 times...so many I lost count. I finally called the internal recruiter to remove my name from consideration--because if this is how they handle the interview process, imaging working there!--and she literally BEGGED me to stay in the process, said I was exactly the person they were looking for, what an amazing company to work for, etc. I finally agreed (against my better judgement) and gave her available dates and times for the next phone interview--she said she would get back with me to confirm---I NEVER HEARD BACK! STILL WAITING! That was 2 months ago! I followed up with her twice, because who would beg someone to set an interview and then never follow through. It's shocking, really..I've never been treated this way in my entire professional career. Who conducts business this way!! It's amazing that anyone gets hired given their interview tactics--DO NOT GET SUCKED IN!!!

    Interview Questions

    • The one interview call they finally attended was very surface, no deep questions. He did ask if I was OK traveling to India and the Philippines because a lot of their business was done overseas.   1 Answer

    Interview process was not so good. It was a tedious and would take more time . there would be 2-3 rounds of interview.Knowing tamil would be an advantage here .
    they are looking for developers and filtering people without any problem even if they answer all good.
    They wouldn't keep up the words.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Atlanta, GA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    The HR coordinator are really good in scheduling the interviews as per the convenience and availability but the panel is not really competent enough to take the interviews.

    The fun starts now, the scheduled calls were cancelled 4 times saying that the panel was not available. And finally when it happened, I am not sure if I want to take it up.
    My first interview was ok, I believe I answered 80% of what they asked but the panel was always concentrating on one area which they worked on rather than talking about my expertise.

    The second panel was really inexperienced(maybe 2-3 years exp and I was close to 10 years) very arrogant, cut short the interview duration for 10 minutes saying that they got what they needed and asked very ambiguous and irrelevant questions. They really did not even understand what I was saying and never gave a chance to speak.

    I am not sure if I would get the offer, but please do think twice before getting into such unethical work culture. I wouldn't want to rate it based just on one interview experience, but I think it is a misrepresentation of any organization.
