SAP Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and interviewed at IBM.

Interview Details – Two back-to-back interviews during University Recruiting session followed by more detailed telephone interviews with the team leader. First set of interviews are mainly to get a feel for broad level skills, while the interview with the team lead was much more granular about the specific role.

Interview Question – How many golf balls fit in a 747.   Answer Question

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at IBM in April 2012.

Interview Details – Within a half hour of my resume hitting IBM, I got a call from an excited recruiter. He asked me a few questions and said that he was going to discuss my resume in a meeting the following day. I heard nothing for a week and a half. I called the recruiter back, the call went to voice mail, I left a message asking if there was any update on my application. He called the following day and said I was still on his spreadsheet. Later that day I got an email from another person scheduling an interview. I had the phone interview and it was more of a personality survey than anything else. It seemed to have went well.

I never heard back from them. I did check on line and it says not selected for position. I do with IBM would have sent some form of notice. I would have liked to know what I could work on to be a more appealing candidate in the future.
