    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Franklin, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Franklin, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at EMC in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very fast, as I met with 2 HR recruiters for 10 minutes each. They asked me simple questions about why I was qualified for the position, as well as why they should hire me over someone with a sales degree. They told me they were interviewing about 4000 candidates, hence the feeling of being rushed through the whole process.

    Storage Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hopkinton, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hopkinton, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at EMC in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    Received a call from an EMC recruiter. After telephone call he set me up with additional phone screen with two EMC associates, one technical person and one program management person. The technical person asked me several technical questions regarding EMC technologies. After the telephone screen, the EMC recruiter called me and told me they were very impressed with my technical skills (I had previously worked for EMC for two years). The hiring manager was in Ireland and did not interview me at all. I was told they wanted to meet with me in person. I went on site to Hopkinton and met with 4 members of the RMS team which I would be working with. The interview went well but they appeared concerned that I expressed an interest in management as a future goal. After a day or two I called the recruiter who said they had one more candidate to interview and they would let me know by weeks end. After feeling like I was getting the run around I called the recruiter who told me I was still very much in the running for the position. Two days later I received an email saying that they brought an internal candidate in for an interview and if all went well he would be getting the job.

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hopkinton, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hopkinton, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at EMC in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Received call from HR within a day. He yawned in my ear for the entire call and apparently thought that was okay. Was a bit rude as well. After a few standard questions, went straight to salary requirements. This Sr. position salary was $6K lower than my previous job which was not sr. level. He said he would check on bonus or any other way to match that and get back to me the next day. I never heard from him again. Sent a follow up email a week later but he didn't have the courtesy to answer it.

    Very disappointing experience with this company that allegedly has such a great reputation. Imagine listening to someone yawning in your ear during an interview!

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hopkinton, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at EMC in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    The process began with a phone interview mainly asking if I was still interested in the position and to schedule an in person series of interviews.
    The following week, I went in for what turned out to be a series of hour long interviews with each member of the Product Marketing team.
    The interviews were not difficult, but were rather more of a "fit" interview.
    I found out the following week that I had been offered the position pending a drug test.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Franklin, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Franklin, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at EMC in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    EMC interview process consisted of an initial phone interview with a recruiter in Franklin. He was very friendly, it was mostly behavioural questions to get a sense of your personality. THe next was a one on one interview in the EMC office in my location. This interview was more in depth, but still mostly behavioural questions to get a sense of my character, and to figure out how I would fit in. Then there was a second phone interview with the recruiter again in Franklin. This one was pretty short, as they had already talked to me quite a bit.

    Software Quality Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cambridge, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cambridge, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at EMC in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    My recruiter set up the interview and gave me the first names of the five people I would be speaking to. I did not have an avenue of communication with them prior to the interview day. I arrived and was met at the security desk by the person who was to be my second interviewer. The order of interviews had been changed. I alternated between speaking to each of the five people (two potential colleagues, one project lead, one team lead, one manager) and seeing different parts of the facility (office, break area, data center). Each of the interviewers asked me different questions about how my qualifications applied to their area of expertise. The first four people were very fun to talk to and seemed rather excited about the projects I would be coming in to work on. The final person, the department manager, was rather somber.
