    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at EMC (Sacramento, CA).

    Interview

    Multiple interviews with Program Manager and Regional Support Managers over a six month period. I was referred by a Sales Engineer so the interview process was relatively informal. Focus on the interviews was mostly on my prior experience and contacts with State of CA agencies and departments. Very little on project management capabilities or methodologies.

    Application

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

    Security Researcher Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at EMC (Hopkinton, MA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed with 5 different people and it felt like 5 different companies. None of the generic 'can you solve problems' questions, mostly about my experiences and knowledge. Every interviewer seemed to have their own agenda, and the result was very much a 'three blind men describing an elephant' experience for me, so I was not really quite sure what the role actually involved.

    GSAP - Associate Technical Services Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed 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.
