    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Jersey City, NJ) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Two different interviewers. Very nice people. Did not ask any technical questions. Mostly wanted to know your background, career interests, and personal character. Tbh, I didn't have the strongest software background on my resume.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (New York, NY) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Interviewed at a campus recruiting event, moved on to a pair programming interview then a technical interview via Skype.

    The interview process was very disorganized and I was even double booked for an interview. At every step, I was promised that I would hear back from HR but had to reach out to my HR contact with multiple calls and emails. Overall, the interview process was unnecessarily long, it took me over 2 weeks to hear back to schedule my 2nd interview.
