    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    First round was on campus and had a behavioral and case component. I was invited to the second round for which I had the choice between going to their NJ office or doing it over Skype. Due to a conflict I chose to do the Skype interview for which the interviewer never showed up. Cognizant did not apologize, but instead said I could interview the next week. However, they failed to set up an interview then. Three weeks later they emailed me saying they could set up an interview for that week. I agreed, but again they did not follow through. After that I withdrew from the process.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you define leadership?
      What is the difference between leadership and management?
      What is something analytical you did?
      About 8 other behavioral questions. It seemed like everyone is asked the same questions, which were all pretty standard.

      The second interview was a case. It was pretty basic and did not involve calculations or secondary information. It had to do with an international expansion strategy.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2011.

    Interview

    30 Minute Interview with the HR Recruiter, referred to an Administration person to coordinate further interviews.

    1st scheduled interview rescheduled. Next interview was set up with a different person, and finally I was provided with a further person for the interview. This last interview was postponed at the last minute twice and finally I was called without prearrangement by a practice lead who I can only describe as being extremely hostile.

    It was clear two minutes into the call that he had some definite ideas on who he was looking for and I was not it. I asked a question and was told "just answer my questions".

    We spent the next 15 minutes in difficult discussion - him asking for deep details of my current employers methodologies, current projects and other details that I was not comfortable sharing with a potential competitor. He also started asking for deep technology details, which ended up with us discussing disk subsystems (at cache schema level), while he continually mentioned that I was not answering with a deep enough level of detail.
