    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.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    One of the recruiter told me that there is a company called Cognizant and they are looking for software engineer due to new project for their client. Few days later I got an email to prepare for phone interview at specified date & time. Unfortunately nobody gave me a phone call that time. I got email that they are apologizing for that and let's setup new phone call tomorrow. That day I had a 30 minute call with guy, but it was very hard to understand him and moreover line quality was very bad. After phone call I have not received any feedback so far. Moreover about two weeks later, different recruiter who worked for them reached me once again asking for the same job! Unimaginable!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Bengaluru (India)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Worst experience in my life. Applied through their career website. They have scheduled the interview and I have gone through 2 technical, 1 HR round. The entire process took a day by making us wait and without asking us to go for lunch or anything for the whole day. After clearing the 2 technical rounds the HR asked all my past experiences and nothing else. Later she informed that I will get call for next HR discussion and will let you know the formalities. Its more than a month still I didn't get any update on my candidature. After sending a lot of follow ups they don't give a damn to reply. Careless ruthless, laziest and full of attitude people. Your very existence of your HR job is because of technical fellows. If they are not there you don't even have your jobs. Show some respect to technical guys. They are not your road side daily labors.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked few questions basic questions which even they don't know the answers when I have explained them clearly. They expect the definitions which are there in books. Grow up guys you are not in school   Answer Question
