    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Teaneck, NJ).

    Interview

    After talking to them at a job fair they flew me out from college to interview. Interviewers seemed uninterested, and there were a ton of other applicants. I got an offer but the process gave me a less than optimal view of the company so I ended up taking an offer elsewhere.

      What is the difference between an abstract class and an interface, when would each be useful?

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions.

    Interview

    I applied for a job opportunity with Cognizant and everything looked like moving very smooth until the interview. They will schedule the interview time and who is going to take the interview. But you will never get a call on time. When you follow up with them, they never pick your call. They will make excuses that they were busy with client meetings and whole lot of things. And reschedule the same interview the next day and it continues for few days until you decide to drop. I mean if you are buying someone's time then you should respect it as well. Everyone is busy. I would never suggest to join such a company who cannot meet their commitment (unless you have a real need to). Unfortunately this has happened to me 2-3 times until when I finally decided to never work for this company. I have inquired about this attitude with lot of my friends and all have the same review.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions in April 2014.

    Interview

    My over the phone interview was very easy. I was looking for something out of college, and was asked three basic high level questions, and was offered a job on the very same call for a position working with a software product in the healthcare realm. After being hired I was required to do a background check, drug test, and an AHM-250 certification. I was trained in the product and put on a project a few months after.
