    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Sogeti (Indianapolis, IN) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Went through an initial phone screen with HR, then a quick technical review with a PM. Apparently that went well enough for them to schedule an in person interview with the client liaison. Met at a coffee shop and everything seemed to go well. Had a follow interview scheduled with the client, but it got cancelled last minute. No further information or follow up from anybody. Take the information presented with skepticism and a grain of salt.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sogeti.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the recruiter who I had a brief interview with. We covered my resume and some details about the position. After I scheduled another interview over the phone with another person. Went more in depth over the position and started getting technical. Had a really good conversation. Scheduled an in person interview after, however, they claimed to be really excited and couldn't wait for the in person so we scheduled over the phone on short notice. Covered the same stuff. The the recruiter then said they would make their decision by Friday but said my odds looked good. Did not hear back. Then they changed to Monday, again did not hear back. Emailed them one more time they apologized and said the hiring manager was busy and would get back to me tomorrow. Never heard from them again.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sogeti (Overland Park, KS) in March 2017.

    Interview

    "Technical Screen" that wasn't technical at all. This was more about what the interviewer already knew from reading my resume and people we knew in common. This was more about the interviewer's ego than my technical ability.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sogeti.

    Interview

    Negative experience. 3 individual interviews back-to-back. Interviewers obviously did not care about the process, and did not read my resume. Mostly discussed their own irrelevant job/life experiences, and oddly enough all of them were unwilling to discuss any past projects they had worked on Sogeti. Left me completely in the dark on the job I was applying for. Interviews were unprofessional and condescending. I wouldn't recommend applying.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Sogeti (Houston, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of technical questions and background. They wanted to make sure that we would be able to communicate between clients and developers. The interviewees were extremely nice and kind, however there was extreme confusion and then the job just disappeared. It was disappointing that the company had miscommunication, and I never received any feedback.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sogeti (Minneapolis, MN) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Someone from Sogeti asked to set up a phone interview with me after seeing one of my profiles online. I arranged a meeting with them, and they got back to me one hour before their preferred meeting time. I accepted the meeting, so they sent me some questions to fill out in preparation for the interview. After I filled out the questions, I didn't hear back from them. After 10 minutes, I asked about what was going on. No reply. After an hour, I gave up waiting. I never heard from them again.

    My takeaway is that you shouldn't feel disappointed if they contact you and then drop you. That's on their end, not yours.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sogeti.

    Interview

    It started out with a recruiter contacting me, and explaining what Sogeti does, and it is a consulting firm so traveling throughout the valley is typically what a Sogeti employee does. After that, the recruiter schedules a technical phone interview based on your schedule. The phone interview was quite technical and included a variety of questions. It included questions about Object Oriented programming, processes and threads, and Microsoft SQL Server. Phone interview lasted about 30 minutes. Never heard back from Sogeti.

    Associate Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sogeti (Dallas, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Met them at a college career fair. Given a phone interview then invited for an in-person interview from 9am to 2pm. There were 4 interviews. First one was with HR. They are all behavioral questions. Simple and typical questions. Next interview was with a vice president or someone high up. It was also behavioral and conversational. Next interview was technical. This is were I did bad. They expect you to know way too much coming out of college. For example, on my resume I have a few months experience with an ETL tool. The interviewer asked me very advanced questions which a beginner should not know. She was asking about cache and performance improvement. She also asked about a joiner transformation. I told her I only had experience with about 5 out of 30 transformations because again, I'm a beginner with only a few months experience. You will not see any college students with experience in this tool by the way. So even though I knew a little, I knew much more than a typical college grad. The other interviewer asked me SQL and database questions, which were pretty tough. Again, they don't have good expectations for entry level people. I guess they forgot what it feels like to be a college student. The last interview was behavioral and conversational. Overall, I had a bad feeling about the place. I think it started when they told me you only get 2 weeks training coming out of college and are then expected to have a client. This is way too fast. 2 weeks later I get a phone call from HR. Usually a phone call is a good thing so I was excited. On the phone they said "we are hiring about 4 people and we loved our interviews with you. But we aren't hiring you. You don't have enough technical experience." This is such a shock. A company should send you an email for news like this, not a phone call. It is common knowledge that a phone call is good news. I will not recommend this company to anyone.

    Marketing Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sogeti.

    Interview

    -I was introduced via personal connection's referral. Initial phone conversation was great--very clear and helpful.
    -I was then connected with a couple of other team members, and then HR reached out to schedule an in-person interview.
    -HR was very helpful in providing information about the company and interview process prior to the interview.
    -I had onsite interviews with 3 team members. Two of them were friendly and respectful, the other one, not so much as he/she cut me off in mid sentence, cut the interview short, and was not friendly/respectful during the interview. I understand his/her position is much higher up, but his/her attitude made me uncomfortable.
    -After my interview, I reached out to HR and HR said he/she will get back to me in 2 weeks max. I followed up again in 2 weeks but still have not heard back after 2 months. So it's safe to assume I did not get the offer.

    In general, this was a negative experience. The work environment is very lethargic and old school. Most importantly, the lack of respect by one of the interviewer and the lack of follow up are unprofessional.
