    Manager - Projects Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions in September 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was 3 rounds. One for technical discussion, second for client/manager discussion and 3rd with HR for salary negotiation. The technical interview was conducted on skype and questions related to the technology I applied for were asked. The questions were not tricky and a person working on the technology should be able to answer it. Managerial round was more of a process interview on how you will approach an issue, how will you work with team and how will you rate your sub-ordinates. HR round was more or less about the salary negotiation and the process related to your joining.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions in July 2014.

    Interview

    There were altogether 3 rounds of interviews, 2 of them being more of HR rounds and one was a technical interview covering several technologies. Questions ranged from basics and graduated to more difficult topics, they also had questions on processes followed in previous assignments.
    Interview process took a couple of weeks and entire recruitment process took almost 2 months!

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were around memory leakage, heap configuration,integration protocols,collections etc   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There wasnt a much scope for negotiation on the salary in first HR round, I would suggest to re-negotiate the salary once they have decided to make an offer.
