    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    I was contacted by someone affiliated with this organization and was told to send my resume to a specific person. A few days later another individual in another state conducted a brief phone interview. Was told to report to their Phoenix operation for a face-to-face. That interview was moved from location to location during the interview. Ended up concluding the interview in a hallway.

    Business Development/Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions in July 2017.

    Interview

    I got the interview through internships.com, a service through Chegg. I was told to conduct the interview via Google Hangouts, which was very unorthodox. However, after checking Glassdoor and seeing 3 other interviews done this way, I moved forward with the interview.

    This ended up being a SCAM. Cognizant itself is a great company, but there are people out there posing as Cognizant Technology Solutions and preying on recent college graduates that they can serve as an intern who'd work from home.

    After "passing" the interview and getting "hired" they told me they'd send me a check so I could buy certain supplies to create an in-home office such as an Apple laptop, printer, and more. Lastly, they stated I'd go through a week-long training process where I thought I'd go to the nearest office to be trained. However, they mentioned that the supervisors would come to my home to train me.

    After putting the puzzles pieces together, it ended up being a scam and I reported it.

    PLEASE BE AWARE OF SCAMMERS!

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions.

    Interview

    Phone interview followed by in person, then HR interview. The offer was sent one month later. Total time taken was close to 45 days. The interview process is smooth, very professional. They were very nice regarding treating the new joiner and help to navigate the environment. Interview process details were given in detail along with expectation. It was one of the best I had.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Short and super rushed conversation with HR. Cut me off multiple times when trying to answer the questions THEY asked. Could barely understand they were talking so fast and jittery. I remained calm and tried to answer concisely. Asked me if I could talk a technical recruiter. Said yes. I asked when. They asked when I was available. Gave availability for the next few days. Never called back. Then calls one morning a week later and asks if I can do a web conference in two hours. I said yes. They said would send email. It never came. I had an appointment so I headed to that. They call on my way in saying they meant their time zone and the conference was NOW. (Still no email.) Said I couldn't do it - asked me to do it in 30 minutes. I rescheduled my appointment and headed back. Got home, finally got email, set up my laptop and changed to business attire. Logged into the web conference. Interviewers don’t have a webcam so it becomes a phone conversation. Interviewers go through the job description....it was for a tech support technician in another state. Not what I applied for. Not even close to my skill set. Unorganized, waste of time. Not sure if this is normal but it surely didn’t give me a warm fuzzy about Cognizant.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Seattle, WA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted via e-mail and instructed to set up a google hangout profile. One I was logged in I attempted to schedule an interview as I was unable to talk on the phone at that exact moment. Instead I was told that the interview could be conduct via IM, which was very unusual. I was continually told that my responses needed to be prompt. Over all the interview was very unusual and awkward.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Saint Louis, MO) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by email two days later. I participated in a phone screening interview and was invited to an in-person interview, which took place approximately 8 days from initial contact. I have completed numerous in person interviews in my career and I would rate my experience as one of the best I have ever had. The interviewers were the manager over the department and one of the senior analysts. They were casual, and yet still professional. They were knowledgeable about the position and open about the culture, responsibilities and direction of the company. I currently have a great job but was interested in this position because it's an area I am interested in pursuing after obtaining my MBA degree. If they would have asked me to quit my job that day and come aboard, I probably would have done it! Maybe I'm terrible at reading these things, though, because I was not offered a position. I appreciated the opportunity, though!
