    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at EMC in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was invited to their campus directly from EMC HR team. Had one-to-one technical round, one telephonic-technical round from US after 2 days, one technical/managerial round in Bangalore office after 2 days of previous round. All interviewers were very nice and they made me very comfortable while answering to them. They were particularly looking for Java, Spring, Web Services candidates for their one of the project/product. HR round was telephonic and there was nothing much discussion except salary negotiations and joining date negotiations. Overall, it was nice experience.

    Associate Consultant II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at EMC in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was easy and informational. The interviewers asked about my past experience. The questions were practical and scenario based. The questions were around my experience and subject area. The interviewers asked anaytical questions related to ETL, Databases, Shell scripting. The basic questions were around SQL tuning and databse performance. I declined the offer due to HR recruiter attitude.

    Reasons for Declining

    The HR recruiter with whom i interacted for the HR round didnot know how to talk to candidates. As recruiter is the first person with whom you interact. The recruiter started abusive language when he found my expectation rather if would have told that we cant offer that much.After ridiculing and all he started negotiating. When i declined he called me to send the offer. 2 days later he called to say that they cannot offer what was promised in first place. I took the offer as i have resigned taking the offer breakup considering it from a tier1 company and started searching desperately for the other one and to my luck i got the offer a day before joining EMC, so when i mailed that i cannot join, he again started abusing me and also threatened me to bar from al the companies as if he is a GOD. I think the management should check on the people they are taking in as recruiter and put them on some behavioural training.

    Associate IT Generalist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at EMC in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    This is for the IT leadership program.The many rounds it had was quite annoying since the package offered was mediocre. There was an online aptitude and technical test in our college.We were then shortlisted and called to their office.We had a technical and HR face to face interview.The candidates that were shortlisted were again called for an HR face to face interview. They told me that if i get a call and email I would be selected for the next round.Accordingly I got a call telling me i qualified to the next round and to come the next day.I even received a confirmation email.

    When i went there the next day in the afternoon ,they tell me they interviewed a few more people on that day in the morning and since they were better I'm no longer a shortlisted candidate.But I realised this was a lie, because some of the people who interviewed on the same day as me got a call on the day of the interview in the afternoon asking them to come(just a few hours before the scheduled interview).How did they suddenly decide on the day of the interview that I who was already selected should be removed and someone who wasn't selected should take my place instead?

    I felt very disappointed to be rejected after making 3 long distance travels and all the preparation for the interview.They should respect their commitment no matter what the reason. If the company treats its candidates with such insensitivity I wonder how the work environment there is. I'm happy I'm not in such a company.
