    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hopkinton, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at EMC in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had a two step interview with 5 managers total. Mostly I have been asked about my leadership abilities, any positions that were related to possible leading assignment. Any achievements that I had made over the last couple months. At the time of my interview I was doing my internship there, so there were a lot of questions on how do I find a company atmosphere. Do I work easily within a team, but at the same time can I lead the team or work on myself.
    There were very few technical questions. Overall both interview were very friendly and left only positive emotions.

    Business Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hopkinton, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hopkinton, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at EMC in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    It was a long process from application to offer (about 3 months). Expect to have 4 phone interviews and 1 in-person interview with 3-4 people. Way to political... no one wants to make a decision without vetting it with a commitee.

    Interview Questions
    • Many managers at EMC are "Lifers" meaning they have been with the company for 15+ years and they look with skepticism on people who have worked for more than 2-3 companies in their career. It is most difficult to explain to them why you haven't been with the same employer for 10+ years.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Yes, I was able to negotiate a little for salary, stock and vacation time.

    Got an e-mail from a team leader about an open position. He came across my resume and got in touch with me. After the initial e-mail, he asked for a phone conversation, 4 days later we had a phone conversation and he invited me for on-site interview.
