    Inside Sales Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at EMC (Franklin, MA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen. Then onsite 1 on 1 interview. Then I was then brought in for a group interviewing process throughout the day. The day consisted of background on their sales development program, projected career growth, as well as one on one and panel interviews all consisting of behavioral based questions, as well as a role play session with one of the managers imitating a cold call. Honestly, I was ultimately disappointed in the company and their selection process. I was told I did not get an offer which is fine, but their reason was that I did not have enough sales experience.....for their development program? I went into the interview with more experience than many of the other candidates and was just disappointed that they could not offer real feedback after such a long process.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at EMC (Hopkinton, MA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I had a two step interview with 5 managers total. Mostly I have been asked about my leadership abilities, any positions that were related to possible leading assignment. Any achievements that I had made over the last couple months. At the time of my interview I was doing my internship there, so there were a lot of questions on how do I find a company atmosphere. Do I work easily within a team, but at the same time can I lead the team or work on myself. There were very few technical questions. Overall both interview were very friendly and left only positive emotions.

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at EMC (Hopkinton, MA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    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!
