    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at EMC.

    Interview

    Was referred by a friend for a position in the east coat. HR got back to me that same day. They scheduled an over the phone interview. The interview went great. The only reservations they had were that they wanted me to gain more sales experience before starting this job. Then they called me and said to contact them again once I have that under my belt.

    Interview Questions

    • Why EMC? Why sales? Do you have any sales experience? Tell me about a time you had to admit to something you did wrong? Lots of behavioral questions and some open ended.   Answer Question

    GSAP - Associate Technical Services Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at EMC (Raleigh, NC) in June 2015.

    Interview

    There's a brain teaser they (there's two of them) want you to solve (I did one and others I talked to did two). No pressure since they will help you if you're stuck and they are patient but I got it down pretty quickly.

    They want you to know about Linux since they work with that. I was a bit worried since the technical interviewer told me if I didn't get one of these positions, this would probably be the reason.

    They ask about DNS.
    How I would troubleshoot a network issue.

    Behavioral questions (easy).

    Overall, it was fun. They laughed. I laughed. I was being myself the entire time. Be honest. Be friendly. Ask questions at the end because it shows initiative. The environment was relaxed.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I did not want to negotiate because the benefits package is more than I ever could have hoped for being an entry level individual.

    Interview

    You meet with a ridiculous amount of people and have to do a presentation. You can end up spending a lot of time preparing and interviewing, then they end up giving it to someone internal. They need a least 3 people to select from so you may be used just so they can check the box.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at EMC (Hopkinton, MA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I spoke with a team member on the phone, then came in and had 4 ~45 minute interviews with members of the market research team. They were all respectful and informative, and seemed happy to be speaking with a prospective employee. The company is very large and it was nice to be able to talk to people who work as a part of a focused team. They really gave me a good idea of what working for them is really like.
