[Resolved]  Cognizant — interview status as "select" from cognizant talent acquisition (tag) team - still not received offer letter

I had completed face to face technical round (.net mvc position) even hr discussions on the same day feb 03 2018 at cts kandanchavadi chennai. And i had received mail "interview status as select" from cognizant talent acquisition team on feb 09 2018. And follow to that i had received photo upload mail from cognizant. I have uploaded on the same day.

Again i had received hr discussion form from hr on feb 24 2018. Even completed another round of hr discussion on feb 28 2018. And he confirmed that i will receive offer letter within a week. Still i have not received any letters or response from cognizant team.

And today i have been approached by a cognizant hr mvc position in chennai cts. Are you guys even serious?!

I understand your plight. Same here, attended interview for .net MVC on Feb 10th Kandanchavadi office. I was selected, completed HR round, salary discussion. I got a photo upload email on Feb 20. Till date no sign of offer letter. It has been a month and sent repeated emails to the HR and no response from any of them. I still get calls to attend the weekend drive every week for the same role.
Did u get your offer letter ? Please let me know.
I appeared interview for .net MVC on 9th March in Kolkata. I was selected, completed HR round, salary discussion.
After that I am still waiting for Cognizant.
I still get calls to attend the weekend drive every week for the same role.

Is there any hope for this selection?
ArunRaj.NET's [Complaint's author] reply, Apr 25, 2018
Definitely you will receive offer bro. My kind advice is don't attend week end drives once you are selected. This will duplicate your profile. If you receive any calls for weekend drive tell them you are already attended two round of interviews and waiting for your offer letter. Please be patience!
Same like Abhijit86. I appeared interview on 17th March for .Net MVC. I was selected and completed HR round on same day. I received auto generated selection mail from [protected] with the titled "Cognizant Interview Status-Select" on 22nd March 2018. Mail body ends with "You will receive your offer and other pre-joining details shortly" but still not receiving any offer letter and joining details.
I also get calls to attend the weekend drive every week for the same role.

Hi Sopu, have u got the offer From CTS.

Myself Renganathan, i attended interview on June 8 for Core Java. i have cleared 2 round and completed HR on same and finalized . similarly i got the conformation mail from [email protected] like what you received the same.
After that still im not get the offer letter. Any idea about surely they release offer letter ...?
Sopu Maiti's reply, Jun 25, 2018
Yes I received a call regarding that interview on 19th June. But I did not wait for that call. I interviewed for the second time, got selected and received offer letter within one week.

I suggest you if it delays more than two or three months, do not wait just give interview again or try to communicate with HR.
Same here attended interview on 7th April 2018.after one week i got select status mail, but no response still. Please let me know how to follow up this.

Hi Rahul,

My situation is also same as like you,
Can you let me know do you got any update
Rahulk90's reply, Sep 26, 2018
Hello Santhosh,

Yes, i got some update from CTS hr department is like currently there is no project on my specific domain that's the reason they are unable to release the offer letter.
Kindly let me know your specific domain name (like which skills you have attended the interview)

SanthoshKumar Ravichandran's reply, Sep 28, 2018
Hi Rahul,

I have attended for the skills like java, spring, hibernate.
May i know that for which specific domain (like which skills you have attended the interview)

Hi i attened interview on 1st sept @ Bagmane tech.
Received a mail saying Interview status select on 18th September, still I haven’t received the offer letter. HR says you are selected for future requirements, what does this mean, will I receive offer letter or not?
It's been 6 months and I haven't received offer letter yet. I do get calls from CTS HR stating that they will update on the offer status but no luck yet. They are not even serious. In between I got selected in Infosys and joined there. It's been 1 month I joined infy.
I am Chitrada Hemanth Krishna from Anil Neerukonda institute of technology and Sciences who have been recently shortlisted for cognizant employment in a pool campus drive conducted at RaghuEngineering college on 28th September 2019. To get registered into this I was supposed to submit my credentials through the Microsoft database, the link of it is in my offer letter, When I opened the link I got the page with my Microsoft I'd already created. I Never created my Microsoft accounts in prior. I am appalled to learn that my Microsoft I'd already created. tried to reset it but the reset rights were with our admin. For the factour college never had a Microsoft account and I have no admin.
I have mailed about these issue to c2c but no response from them.
