    Systems Integration Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at EMC in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview questions were all "softcore" by most standards and only asked about my background, previous experience, etc. There were no unexpected questions, and they were all fairly easy and reasonable. The manager purposely tries to make you feel uncomfortable to try and catch you off guard. Don't let this get to you as the questions are not difficult.

    Systems Integration Engineer, Coop 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 day - interviewed at EMC in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    The setup was in a presentation room and involved everyone from the group, the manager, the team leader, the engineers and the current coop students. The method used was rotational interviews.

    According to the numbers of interviewees they were split up and spread out in the room such that every group was interviewing one candidate at a time. Starting from a random table in the room, each candidate had about 7-8 minutes to interview with each group.

    The total procedure was about two hours long, as each candidate had to interview with every group. Free pizza and soda was served before the interview process.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were generally targeted to personality rather than technical mastery, but this might be since it was a coop position. "Tell us about a project you have worked on" and "Why I should hire you?" were used and should be expected.   Answer Question

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

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

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at EMC in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Multiple interviews. First round was like speed dating with 9 different managers or employees. Second round was onsite with 2 or 3 of my potential managers. The process was not overly stressful, but if you don't really want the job the interviewer will know and you won't get the job.

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

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed 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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Franklin, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed 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.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Franklin, MA
    Application Details

    The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at EMC in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview. If they like you, they'll fly you out to their location for a one on one at their expense. One on one was fairly easy. Make sure you know the company and what they do. You meet with a variety of different managers. If you move from manager to manager fairly quickly, you know you are doing well and they want to get you in front of as many people as possible to get a good look. Make sure you close them and share why you are excited about the opportunity. Prepare. Understand the company and it's technology.

    Interviews went well. Felt comfortable with most interviewers. Fluid conversations. Tested my wish to purse sales, work at EMC, and knowledge of EMC.
