    Interview

    Set up a phone and changed the schedule 3 X's. Got frustrating. Obviously read a script and knew very little about the deal, process and job. It was more a PR stunt

    Application

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at IBM.

    Interview

    I went through the interview process again for the second time in the past 5 years, and again, they permanently put a position on hold. My references checked out and passed my background check. IBM should not tease candidates in thinking they have an opportunity just to turn around and let them know it is on hold. I've missed opportunities because I couldnt give them a deciding answer since waiting for IBM to give me an answer. Very unprofessional!!!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at IBM (Tulsa, OK) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The process was great. Met wonderful people. I was applying for the job from which I was laid off. However, they all but offered me the job at the final interview with the hiring manager. I was told I was the perfect candidate and to expect an offer. After all, it was the job I had for 15 years. I heard nothing for nearly 2 weeks and I followed up with them. I was shocked when I was told they were going to keep looking for other candidates. I thanked the recruiter for her help. She assured me that she would be getting back to me with new opportunities, as I was a perfect rehire candidate, that my skills were extraordinary and that I had very good recommendations. It's been over a month and I have heard nothing.

    Interview Questions

    • Mainly about my experience at IBM previously. I was a rehire.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at IBM (Austin, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through my university's program. After about a week, they contacted me through email. We scheduled a phone screen to see if we would be a good fit for each other. The phone interview was with 2 members of the team and consisted of details of what the job was about, both technical and behavioral questions relating to Computer Science, and technical questions about the projects on my resume. They wanted someone with strong Java and Javascript skills, and I was looking to get away from Java and only into Javascript. We agreed we were not meant to be and parted ways. Overall, very nice and professional.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at IBM (Austin, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Overall very fun. We were taken out to dinner the night before and had a full day of interviews the next day. We had a group project, portfolio presentation, one on one interview, and a side project presentation. I had technical difficulties that probably contributed to my lack of offer. I was also told that they love memes...
