    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Teaneck, NJ (US)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Teaneck, NJ (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through my school's career network in January.

    I was chosen for a first round interview in late February on my school's campus. The interview consisted of walking the interviewer through my resume. We talked through how I solve problems; they want to hear that you break down the problem into different parts to analyze them individually and then analyze the problem as a whole. The interviewer was asking rapid fire questions one after another. She also asked me how many golf balls could fit into an airplane, so brush up on how you would go about solving these types of problems. I didn't think the interview went too well but I got an email the next week inviting me to final round interviews.

    The final round interview in Teaneck got pushed back multiple times due to inclement weather. I finally interviewed at their headquarters in late March, over a month later. The interview day consisted of two interviews: one case and one behavioral. Brush up on your case interviews, especially SWOT analysis and estimation questions. There weren't really the typical hard case questions from what I heard.

    Everyone at the office was extremely friendly on the interview day. The behavioral interview was just talking about my experiences. This interview started late so I didn't get the full 30 minutes with the interviewer.

    The case interview was a little frustrating. He asked me how a pharma company could develop a marketing strategy and sales approach for a new diabetes drug. He was expecting me to walk him through a SWOT analysis and seemed annoyed at the approach I took. We stopped the case after a little while and just talked about problem solving. I didn't think this interview went well at all.

    A month later I heard back from one of the managers that I was getting an offer. I received the official phone call later that week and the official letter the same day as the phone call.

    I chose another firm because of location and compensation. Overall I thought the process took a little too long and was very drawn out, but the atmosphere at the firm seemed great and I liked everyone.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (New York, NY (US)) in November 2013.

    Interview

    It was through referral. They interviewed for a position so all the questions were more inclined towards what I can do rather then what I have done in the past. They took 3-4 rounds of interviews and it was all smooth. The HR bargaining for compensation is really hard.

    It's important to treat people well during the interview process. I never want to lose a potential customer or cause a candidate to have a negative impression of our company." Your interview process reflects the value your company places on each candidate and, by extension, each employee.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Teaneck, NJ (US)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through college job site, interviewed on campus, went to Teaneck, NJ for final round interviews at HQ. Both rounds of interviews consisted of one case interview and one behavioral. As someone without prior BA experience, the senior manager doing my behavioral interview really dug into the details of my other experiences to assess my fit. It was challenging and engaging, but I ultimately didn't get an offer. I requested feedback from HR and was told the recruiter would ask and get back to me. I'm still waiting to hear back.

    Took over 3 weeks to get a decision after the final round.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions in April 2011.

    Interview

    I was hired as part of their "US Campus Program". Which is a program that they recruit out of US Colleges. I was first interviewed by Jeff Comerford at my school where I learned more about Cognizant. He also asked the basic "who are you" questions, and invited me to ask my own. I was called into a second round of interviews with many other candidates in Teaneck New Jersey. There were 3 separate but equal interviews, Technical, Personal, and Professional. The technical was the most difficult.

    Interview Questions

    • During my technical interview i was faced with questions on technologies I had no idea about. But the interviewer was kind enough to excuse me and told me not to worry, that I would learn more about them as I grew in the company. And I most Certainly have.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation.
