    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at IBM in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted in August for a resume drop, then contacted again in September for interviews. Flown out to NYC office for interviews in late September. Interviews lasted only one morning, consisting of 1 case and 2 behavioral. My interviewer for the case was very unprepared and was looking up her case while I gave my "tell me about yourself" talk. Behavioral interviews were pretty standard. After the interview, I was told decisions would not be made until November. In the first week of November I was emailed saying I was still under consideration. After 2 weeks of not hearing anything, I emailed the recruiter and was replied to with a rejection.

    Associate Partner/Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4 months - interviewed at IBM in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had an opportunity to interview with IBM for consulting/transformation positions. I was kind of disappointed that despite being an internal referral, the whole interview process took over 90 days plus and I was connecting with people in person that I had already spoken over the phone. There was no emphasis put in to connect me with the right folks who had a better understanding of my background as well as aligning me with the right opportunity.

    There was a gap of over a month or so to connect with each interviewer, interestingly enough all interviewers were local. Then during the in-person session, I had to wait for over 30 mins or so to connect with the interviewer. The rest of the sessions were also conducted in haste and were poorly planned. One interviewer was preparing for his GMAT and was really not in the frame of mind. What really threw me off was that a person with 12-15 years of experience was interviewing with candidates who were in 7-9 years work experience bracket. Although smart, but they could not comprehend or connect the dots.

    In general, I would recommend to ensure the role you are interviewing for, the level, who are you going to connect with in-person, what's their background and so forth to avoid a very lengthy cycle of interviews.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at IBM in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Straightforward 1:1 interview on-campus with the recruiter. The recruiter was smooth about asking questions/jumping questions that he thought were redundant after hearing some of my answers. It was a very comfortable 30 minute conversation.
