    Manager - Org Change Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I only had one interview with the team leader. It lasted 30 mins and no feedback was ever provided. It was a bit of a sham.
    There was a big disconnect between the recruiter's and the company's description of the role.
    The Senior Manager/Associate director who interview me showed meekness, low energy and little interest (he seemed to be falling asleep in his chair...), so the interview was more of a seemingly never ending casual conversation without a frame.
    There was no domain or technical questions and the recruiter avoided my questions at the end about vision and team track record.
    So overall, a very uninspiring experience that didn't send a positive image of the company despite what it looks like on paper.

    Graduate Scheme Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (London, England (UK)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Interview itself was fine, but came out with a poor impression of the company. I was invited to attend the assessment day less than a week beforehand, which meant I had to decline a temporary job I had been offered due to a conflict of commitments. There was very poor communication afterwards, I sent five emails over the following months and never received any feedback or even any information if I had been succesful. Definitely wouldn't recommend.

    Interview Questions

    • Was asked about 25 questions, some examples including when did you make a mistake and how did you resolve it, when have you worked in a team, etc.   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (London, England (UK)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Initial communication was good. Got contacted in a timely manner. They gave me a lo of information about company but not enough about type of interview. Had to prepare for various types of possible questions. Got to the final stage of the process. Met with the HR personnel. Was told they really liked me and she would contact me in a week whether or not I got the jobs. She did not. Really poor communication at the end. Asked for a feedback about my interview process, got none.
