The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at EMC in March 2012.

Interview Details – I met 5 people in total, most asked technical questions and some open questions as to how to solve a business problem. Overall, the whole team is a knowledgeable, fun, and friendly group of people.

Interview Details – Besides one person of the interview team, it was great. There was a good two-way flow of information until the bad apple brought the communication to a halt. Unfortunately, this terse person was the hiring manager. Probably not good to work for anyhow.
