Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Santa Clara, CA) in November 2013.

Interview

Met two recruiters at school career fair. 4 interview events total- 1 at the career fair, 2 after driving to an office location (1 in-person and 1 on phone, 30-45 min each), 7 speed-dating style interviews at their headquarters in a room of over 30 people (30-35 min each- pretty exhausting, but everyone was friendly and they kept us hydrated/fed), then one follow-up phone interview (30 mins).

Interview Questions

  • -Some stats you should know if you've done research on the company before going in for the interview: CEO, market cap., P/E, share price, etc. -What makes you qualified for this program and position? -Give me an example of how you know how to problem-solve. -Give me an example of real work experience you've had working in finance. What were you trying to achieve in that project?   Answer Question

Negotiation

No negotiation phase at all.

    Interview

    Applied via Campus Recruiting. Had one interview with alumni on campus and was called back for second (and final) round at headquarters in Hopkinton, MA. 28 candidates with 28 tables in one room. Seven speed dating-style back-to-back 25-35 minute interviews in a row for a few hours. It was pretty exhausting but the people are very friendly.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Hopkinton, MA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Relatively simple, only met with 2 managers. There were no case studies, problem-solving questions etc. Felt like more of a conversation than an interview.

    Interview Questions

    • No unexpected questions, just your typical STAR interview process inquiries.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EMC.

    Interview

    Wasn't able to land an interview until somebody submitted my resume internally. Once submitted internally, I received a call the next day from HR for a phone screening and was scheduled to come in the next week. Met with 2 individuals for about 30 minutes each and was set on my way. Received an offer about a week later.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing outlandish. Just talked about my experience and my thoughts about the company and its growth.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They wouldn't move at all even though the salary offer was lower then what it should be given my credientials. It was a case of the economy not being very good and there not being many jobs out there and them taking advantage of the fact.
