    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at IBM (New York, NY) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I had an internal referral, so that speeded up the process.
    -Three face to face interviews
    -Two phone interviews
    -Verbal offer of role
    -Official offer letter

    The entire process was about two months. Part of that was slowed down because I had some travel at some points they wanted to meet. IBM does seem to be process heavy in the interview process, but the individuals themselves find ways to focus on the right conversations/speed.

    Interview Questions

    • What type of work from your career do you NOT want to do again?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiation wasn't much. I had a competitive offer so they negotiated a little, but I get the filling that salary's, benefits aren't easy to change a lot.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at IBM (Hopewell Junction, NY).

    Interview

    My interview process was less formal than I anticipated. I had a brief phone screening to discuss the role, and schedule the interview. I then went to the IBM site, and met with the hiring manager to interview, and met 2 other Senior people in the department. I received an offer a few weeks later. I know that this process is less rigorous than others have experienced for the same type of job in other departments. I believe the structure of the hiring process is left very flexible to the discretion of the hiring manager(s).

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at IBM (New York, NY).

    Very long process. Three telephone screens -- first with HR, second with peer consultant, third with consulting management. The next phase is a face-2-face all-day interview blitz. 4 more rounds of interviews and finish the day with a group case study.

    • The case study is fairly quick, but lots of pressure. There's a final presentation at the end of the day.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Fairly simple. There's room to negotiate on both the base salary, as well as the starting bonus.
