    Software Testing Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Teaneck, NJ

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Teaneck, NJ) in January 2013.

    Interview

    I received an email that they wanted me to go for an interview in Teaneck. They would provide a car service, flight and hotel for that night. Interview was about 2 weeks after the email.

    The hotel was right next to the office, so I walked right over in the morning. There was 3 other candidates, and 2 more coming later that day. All the candidates were referrals. Started off with some light breakfast and a brief introduction from the manager. We were given some fact sheets to look over. After we were split into rooms, where we met with a Technical interviewer and a Behavioral interviewer. My technical interviewer didn't ask me much technical questions, which reviewed what I knew from my resume. He was mostly trying to see my thought process, and how I demonstrated any leadership or teamwork skills. I heard other candidates were asked some technical questions though. The behavioral interviewer read off a sheet of questions. Typical behavioral questions. Name a time where you had a bad teammate and how you handle it. Strangely, the interviewer was only writing one word responses on the sheet. After finishing, we applied once more to the position on a laptop. I was given a departing gift. I was finished by 10:30AM, so I got to leave early.

    I heard back just 3 days after, that I didn't receive the job because there were better candidates that suited the position. I was confused because the manager said it was possible that we would all get hired. My technical interviewer also indicated that I would do great in this position, since I was a CE major, while there was a biomedical, EE, and IS major there.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Stony Brook, NY) in October 2012.

    Interview

    I did not get too far in the process, but it began with a presentation by 5 representatives of the company. They gave an overview of the company and explained their personal experiences with it. The next day was a one on one interview with all selected candidates. From what I saw, most people took about 20 minutes for the interview. Mine took 40 minutes. I was able to speak very candidly with the interviewer. I was asked about my past experiences, what my goals for the future were.

    He asked me for an example of a time when I had to deal with difficult group members for a project.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Hyderabad (India)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Its very confusing experience to attend interview with cognizant, Hyderabad.
    1. I had an interview one week back with cogni. I reached on time and first round conducted at 12 PM. The interviewer was very happy with my answer and promoted me for the next round.
    2. I cleared the second round and they gave me a HR form to fill up and submit. Along with me one other is there who was selected in second round. He also filled the HR form and After verifying HR form they told him to leave. Then my turn came . They told me that you will get a call within a week from HR. Unfortunately did not get till now. I have sent a mail but till now no reply.

    I am having few question regarding the interview process of Cogni.

    1. Is it the hiring purpose you people are conducting the interviews or you have another mean to it.
    2. Its the minimum curtsy to inform the candidate by mail if you have any issue to take him(as it is followed by other company like: Infosys).
    3. The time is valuable for both company and candidate. Do you have any right to wasting it in your way.
