    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.
