    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at EMC (Hopkinton, MA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I really enjoyed the interview process. I sat in a room for a few hours while I interviewed one on one with different engineers at the company. They assessed my current knowledge of the industry and made a decision based off of that. The questions were straight forward and most of them were aimed to figure out how much I knew already and what I needed to learn. Being young, they were mainly interested in what I had done in school.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at EMC (Hopkinton, MA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    The Manager gave an introduction about the group, and its interaction with other organizations within EMC. Two more 1:1 interviews about 40 minutes each. Questions mostly on the components of a storage system, ways to evaluate the performance etc. After 1:1 interviews, a short session with the Manager again who pointed out the next phases. No word about the salary till this point.

    Negotiation

    I received a verbal offer from the HR, next day of the interview. I asked him to give me a couple of days to think over it. He was a bit reluctant but then agreed. Called me again after 2 days. I suggested he increase the base salary by 5%. He came back after an hour and agreed to it. Note that the negotiations are more likely to succeed for higher level positions compared to entry level ones. The base salary may vary from one group to another as well.

    Interview

    multiple rounds of interview. good thing is no one interviewer can easily kill one candidate. simple technical question, especially compared with paper test. suggest to increase the test strength on the personality such as adding character test.
