    AIM Graduate Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (London, England (UK)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Quick telephone interview to start with. All simple questions and an invite to an assessment day. I was sent a case study by email and was required to prepare a presentation based on it, where I role play as the business analyst and they are the client.
    On the day we had a short induction, did the presentation, a group assessment and a one to one interview. I got the decision on the same day after a short wait.
    Overall the experience was good, they were friendly and it went well because I was well prepared.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (London, England (UK)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Invited to interview, the job I was interviewed for had grown arms and legs since I'd applied and wasn't really the true specialist role that was advertised. They wanted a jack of all trades which did not come across in the advert.
    Short 1 hour interview, all experience based, no competency questions (which I find odd.) This was three weeks ago and I haven't heard a peep from them. Not a good candidate experience at all.

    Solutions Architect Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (London, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Three stage interview: Preliminary phone interview, phone interview with consultant, face to face.

    The consultant in the phone interview was rushing through questions to leave for other work. He showed no concern about doing a good interview.

    Very poor experience.

    After completing the face to face interview Cognizant didn't even contact me to let me know how the interview went. Very unprofessional and poor experience. This is why I give them the a poor rating.

    Interview Questions

    • They will ask about your background and projects completed.

      They will ask about how you applied formal frameworks such as TOGAF, and ITIL on projects.

      The face to face will involve doing a case study and coming up with a solutions architecture that satisfies the requirements of the case.   Answer Question

    Manager - Org Change Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I only had one interview with the team leader. It lasted 30 mins and no feedback was ever provided. It was a bit of a sham.
    There was a big disconnect between the recruiter's and the company's description of the role.
    The Senior Manager/Associate director who interview me showed meekness, low energy and little interest (he seemed to be falling asleep in his chair...), so the interview was more of a seemingly never ending casual conversation without a frame.
    There was no domain or technical questions and the recruiter avoided my questions at the end about vision and team track record.
    So overall, a very uninspiring experience that didn't send a positive image of the company despite what it looks like on paper.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you think of change? Do you know who our CEO is? Take me through your CV.   Answer Question
