Cognizant Technologies & Solutions Interview Experience - Chennai, Jan 11 2015
I gave my online test on jan 4 based on amcat and I got my result on jan 8th. It was too easy actually I'm very bad in apti but even I felt it was too easy so you can guess the questions that how it would be.
Then moving on to tech round.
TR : Good evening.
Me : Good evening sir. Can I have a seat?
Tr : Ya please be seated. OK parkavi tell me about yourself.
Me : I blabbered something.
Tr: Then he asked me about my mini project.
Me : I explained the logic and I was praying god that he should not ask me to do a pgm bcs I'm damn dumb in programing.
Tr: Then he asked me a logical question and asked me to do a program for it.
Me: oh my bad luck I got it. I wrote something and I gave him. Oh he asked me all cross questions and I blabbered continuously.
TR: Parkavi you are very weak in programming and I don't know how you did your mini project even you were not able to find a simple logic.
ME: I didn't say anything I was just looking at him (bcs I know that I am very bad in pgming and I can't justify hm).
TR: OK Parkavi let me give you a last chance do any sorting program. But then he itself asked me to do bubble sort.
Me: Even I'm very bad in that but I wrote something and I blabbered continuously.
Tr: He said again the logic is wrong. You are very bad in pgming let me check your analytical skill and he gave one question.
Me:oh god I was trembling but I didn't show up in my face, I said something bla bla again its wrong.
Tr: Ok parkavi thats it do you have any question.
Me: Sir may I know the answer for that analytical question.
Tr: Oh you want to know it. , if I tell you the answer you will get rejected is that ok for you?
Me: sir if you are going to select me you don't need to tell the answer bcs anyhow I will get a chance to meet you at any point of time in office that time I will ask you. If not tell me now itself sir.
Tr: Oh ultimately you want to know whether you have got selected are not am I rite?
Me: No sir I want to learn. And he gave me the answer and also he said me the result that time itself that I have got selected.
Then HR went normally, I got selected. Clearing tech round is a major barrier. Only thing is even if you don't know anything be confident and say something because they are expecting how we are confident and how we are managing a question.
