The film's official novelisation (considered a canon source of information about the movie) indicates that yes, Poe's mind was indeed violated by Ren using the dark side of the Force to read his innermost thoughts and discover his secrets.
Slumped and shackled in the seat, Poe was still breathing. Beyond
that, he no longer cared much what happened to ...
You're damn right he does. Poe is extremely proud of his customised X-Wing and likes to keep the flight systems just the way he likes them as this maintenance report (from Poe Dameron: Flight Log) shows.

The film script offers the following information
INT. STAR DESTROYER HANGAR - NIGHT
Poe, shackled, is ushered from the transport through the hangar. He is
awed by the imposing space.
POE: All right. All right!
The film's official novelisation concurs, stating that it's "enormous and impressive".

I daresay at this point in time, we can only quote Supreme Leader Snoke:
We shall see. We shall see!
