Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2018.

Interview

Extremely unprofessional interview process. Began interviewing with Cognizant in September 2018. Made it to the final round and was extended an “offer” in December 2018. In January 2019, was told they are no longer interested in extending the offer (after multiple follow ups on my end) and many false promises from the HR recruiter that promised she would keep me in the loop after they literally never followed up with the written offer after the verbal offer was confirmed. I strongly advise avoiding working for a company that treats their “top candidates” this way. I cannot imagine how they treat their actual colleagues.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions.

    Interview

    Interview process overall was pretty quick and professional.

    However, I was offered a verbal offer prior to a pre-planned vacation. After returning from the vacation, no one that I spoke with or that I worked with returned any of my calls or emails.

    I ended up providing my two weeks notice from my previous job and have not been able to find a job since. The only response that I received was when I reached out to one of the HR representatives on Linkedin a month later. She let me know that she is no longer with the company and that the HR team was supposed to follow-up.

    It has now been 4 months since and I have not even received any response from anyone actively working at Cognizant.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions.

    Interview

    Terrible. They seemed to care very little about me as a person and just viewed people as interchangeable parts. Demanded I fill out some form in 5 minutes. Didn't ask any relevant questions about my experience. Communication post-interview was spotty and weird.

    Interview

    Had 3 rounds of interviews all in one day. 3 different Sr. Manager/Director level people interviewed. Nothing crazy. Basic questions mostly about my previous experience, type of projects I did, what I want to do next. Interviewer was very nice.
