    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Boston, MA).

    Applied through my college and had two 30-minute interviews on-campus. Both interviews were casual, and asked typical behavioral questions and some technical questions. Overall, a good experience. I got an offer a week after!

    Social Media Delivery Lead/Associate Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Austin, TX) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I had three rounds over the phone with the recruiter, and two Directors from India. They just scheudule interviews without checking with you to see what your schedule is like. If you don't take the interview, it could be weeks before you get another shot, so you have to take it no matter how inconvenient. I was supposed to hear back from them "this coming Thursday" and here it is 6 weeks later and nothing. I applied on April 24th, first round started on May 1st and went through the 8th. The recruiter's voicemail was perpetually full and she never returned a call. When I finally did get in contact with her (after sending 2 emails and cc'ing everyone I had talked to previously and reaching out on LinkedIn), she acted like I was bothering her, despite her finally responding the 5th or 6th attempt to reach her. Never an apology, but she was very snippy when she told me they were supposed to have some answers the coming Thursday. Clearly, Thursday hasn't come yet, because I still haven't heard from her. Overall, the process was extremely unprofessional. It was a total waste of 4 good hours of my time.

    Interview

    Pretty easy. The interviewer was really nice and since I only graduated then from college, he was less strict and focussed mainly on questions related to IQ and standard data structure.
