    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions.

    Interview

    Very friendly and cozy interview process. The interviewer made me very comfortable and friendly enough to even offer refreshments. The questions were very specific to my area of expertise. The interviewer also made sure I have the right attitude to be hired as a Business Analyst, by focusing on personality quiz and real time scenarios.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (New York, NY) in June 2018.

    Interview

    Hiring process is very unorganized and pathetic. After you reach the venue you won't see the HR for aleast 2 hours. There's no briefing done nor any direction given to the candidate who comes for interview. Just like cattle herd everyone is made to wait in a place and people just gaze at each other. It was the worst ever interview experience.

    SFMC (Title Was Undefined) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Las Vegas, NV) in May 2018.

    Interview

    They started with a technical interview over the phone. The first time they forgot to call me. The second time, they called 6 hours before the interview time then called me again 1/2 hour before the set up interview time. The interviewer was sitting in a casino in Vegas. He was hard to hear, and most of his questions were nonsense. The interviewer kept asking if I was an expert, but his questions were more about my current employer and how they did things, like he was trolling for more business rather than hiring. Eventually I declined to continue and thanked him for his time. He then belittled me and hung up.
