    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions in July 2016.

    Interview

    Got a call from CTS saying that I will be having technical screening on one of the technology . Skype Interview was schedule for next day. Samik Balial was the person who called me from India. This guy asked me questions related to technology they initially told, which I answered well and there was one question where the question itself is wrong which I corrected him. Slowly he started moving to other topics which are not related to what they wanted for and which they didn't told me will be part of the interview. I didn't answered some questions but for the ones which answered correctly (I checked my answers after the interview), he was not ready to agree. He was so indecent and doesn't know on how to behave in an interview. CTS should start training their interviewers on how to conduct or behave during an interview. Being an interviewer doesn't mean he/she knows everything and I don't think Samik Balial knows everything, especially courtesy.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (New York, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was a little interesting and novel to me.
    Cognizant: Applied for a position via LinkedIn and got a phone screening from HR the next week. Just basic HR questions. Then a phone interview with the Director, where he asked about my background and technical skills. He stated that there will be multiple interviews with the client for the position, and prepped me a little bit on it. It was useful.

    Client: 2 Phone interviews with the hiring managers. Then onsite interview with more members of the team.

    Interview

    The hiring process was typical . I had a technical discussion, and because I was out of state one of those interviews was over telephone. The technical interview was very much based off of my previous experience.It was pretty much easy to get through the interview.HR offer letter was also pretty fast.
