    GSAP - Associate Technical Services Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at EMC (Raleigh, NC) in June 2015.

    Interview

    There's a brain teaser they (there's two of them) want you to solve (I did one and others I talked to did two). No pressure since they will help you if you're stuck and they are patient but I got it down pretty quickly.

    They want you to know about Linux since they work with that. I was a bit worried since the technical interviewer told me if I didn't get one of these positions, this would probably be the reason.

    They ask about DNS.
    How I would troubleshoot a network issue.

    Behavioral questions (easy).

    Overall, it was fun. They laughed. I laughed. I was being myself the entire time. Be honest. Be friendly. Ask questions at the end because it shows initiative. The environment was relaxed.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I did not want to negotiate because the benefits package is more than I ever could have hoped for being an entry level individual.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at EMC.

    Interview

    Very long (over 5 months), poorly coordinated interview process by both Recruiting team and interviewing team. No follow up from Recruiting team unless asked. I did not feel the company treated candidates with much respect. The system used for applications submissions is hard to navigate and outdated. Interviews are typical 30-45 min conversations.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical questions about relevant exprience and skills, as well as behavioral questions about difficult situations.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at EMC.

    Interview

    Turned in my resume to emc employees during internship fair that was hosted by my school career center, and I had a very nice talk with both of them. They told me that they are going to turn in my resume to the HRs, and they will contact me if I was chosen. The recruiter emailed me after a week, and set up an interview with me. After interview, I got another phone interview from another recruiter. After the second round, I waited about 2 weeks, and they called me to offer me the internship.
