    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 The system used for applications submissions is hard to navigate and outdated.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.

    I'm grateful that they offered me an internship, so I didn't negotiation anything

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at EMC (Hopkinton, MA).

    Interview

    Brief interview during campus career fair followed by mass onsite interview followed by interview with specific team. After completing 3 rounds of interviews, I got a verbal offer but it took almost 9 months before the written offer was extended. In the interim, the position was put on/off hold several times so it was a bit frustrating. EMC was the first place I interviewed and the last place I heard back from, only after I had other offers to consider.

    There were two different interviews with the second round being speed-dating style on site, and the first being a 1:1 interview on campus. Mainly just behavioral questions and questions on resume. Nothing too tricky. The interviews were very conversational and not as structured as usual, which was a breath of fresh air.
