Average Interview

Application

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

Interview

The process was fast and the level of difficulty was moderate. I was directly called by the Team Lead and we discussed about the position. Later I had 2 rounds of technical interview , followed by a manager interview and then a HR interview.

Though the HR forgot to call me because of some communication gap. Fortunately I has his number and was able to get the offer letter in time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions.

    Interview

    It was a typical interview where the company was just looking to fill someone in but not sure of what they want. I applied for the job for city A and the HR called me and said that job would be in city B or anywhere else but not city A for which I applied. I went ahead with discussion and they were paying below the industry standard. After the HR round, I had a skype interview with one of the developer and it was pretty clear to me that interview was not going to end well right after the first question.

    The interviewer to explain the internal working of Hashmap. I explained that in detail with examples but he insisted the bookish definition. He probably had a website open in front of him and was reading out from that page. Eventually after 15 minutes I got frustrated and opened up java documentation and read out to him to prove my point. To my surprise he said that is wrong. At this point, I knew something was wrong. On the other hand it was hilarious when he said no and read out from his sheet the answer he was looking at and said he has to follow the procedures and questions that has been handed to him.

    I was applying for a java position and he started going on DBA type questions and I explained couple of them but then he started asking advanced configuration level question at that point I had to stop the interviewer and explained that in any company java developers are not given access to change or modify production database configuration. That is job typical of database developer or DBA. He insisted that as Java lead I should know Db configuration which is pretty uncommon for "me".

    On couple of topic we had worked on different flavours of technology and the interviewer had the audacity of saying I have not worked on X but I am going to ask you about Y because that is what I am familiar with and didn't care to read my resume that I don't work on Y. He never went over my past work experience.

    Here's the last straw and funniest part:
    In the end when I asked him if he knew what position was Interviewing for? The Interviewer said that it could for any position and I could be on a project which did not involved coding at all as it could be onsite offshore coordination or development position or an architect.
