Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hopkinton, MA
Application Details

I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at EMC in September 2012.

Interview Details

Hiring process was very smooth. The EMC recruiter contacted me and scheduled a phone interview with the hiring manager. After the phone interview an onsite interview was scheduled. After the onsite interview an offer was presented about one week later. The onsite interview consisted of 5-6 individual interviews with other engineers.

Interview Questions
  • I was not asked any difficult or unexpected questions. I did have to take a drug test which was a little inconvenient; however it's well worth the trouble.   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
The negotiation was fair. They offered near the top end right away so there wasn't much room for negotiation.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at EMC in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    There was not a "pre-defined" interview process or set of questions. I interviewed with several members of the team. They explained that they were looking to do and I pretty much explained my experience and how I would go about doing what they were looking to do.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    This was a contract-to-hire position. The negotiation on the hourly rate was with the intermediary consulting company but I had a discussion on the desired full-time salary if the conversion to full-time happened. Four months later I got a full-time offer and the salary discussed during the initial hiring process was honored.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at EMC in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was initially contacted by a member of EMC HR, I had not applied for any job.
    I went through two rounds of interviews, about a week apart. Each time I interviewed with 3-4 people.
    The questions were mostly technical and I was expected to use the whiteboard to explain some concepts and systems I'd worked on in the past.

    It took them about a month after interviewing me to give me an offer. After I received that I was required to take a urine drug test. That wasn't an issue for me, but it's the first time in 30 years I've ever had to do this.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no unexpected questions. The normal challenging ones: what were my weaknesses; what was a challenging situation I encountered and how did I handle it. I had prepared some general responses so I didn't flounder when asked. The interviewers were all reasonable.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I tried negotiating for more vacation time (I'm a very senior engineer with a lot of experience). But no luck. After joining I heard the the HR rep I dealt with was not very good.
