    Interview Details

    The interviewer asked me some questions about my background and working visa status. Unfortunately, the company does not provide sponsorship for this position.Hopefully in the future, I still have the opportunity to be interviewed for the positions in EMC.I like what EMC is doing, especially in the storage area.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at EMC.

    Interview Details

    In order: Short phone screen with talent acquisition specialist, short phone interview with division leader, programming test, in-person interview. The team leader of the Watch4net division seems to really care about his employees and likes to maintain a good working environment. Programming test performance, ability to fit in to the group, and bilingualism are probably the most important traits here.

    Associate Consultant II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at EMC in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was easy and informational. The interviewers asked about my past experience. The questions were practical and scenario based. The questions were around my experience and subject area. The interviewers asked anaytical questions related to ETL, Databases, Shell scripting. The basic questions were around SQL tuning and databse performance. I declined the offer due to HR recruiter attitude.

    Reasons for Declining

    The HR recruiter with whom i interacted for the HR round didnot know how to talk to candidates. As recruiter is the first person with whom you interact. The recruiter started abusive language when he found my expectation rather if would have told that we cant offer that much.After ridiculing and all he started negotiating. When i declined he called me to send the offer. 2 days later he called to say that they cannot offer what was promised in first place. I took the offer as i have resigned taking the offer breakup considering it from a tier1 company and started searching desperately for the other one and to my luck i got the offer a day before joining EMC, so when i mailed that i cannot join, he again started abusing me and also threatened me to bar from al the companies as if he is a GOD. I think the management should check on the people they are taking in as recruiter and put them on some behavioural training.

    Software Engineer II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Research Triangle Park, NC
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at EMC in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    3 technical phone interviews followed by single 1-on-1 interview. The questions were mostly java oriented and focussed on my previous internship work and tested my technical communication skills. The process tested my knowledge of java and I had some upper edge because I had done an internship at EMC previously. This helped me demonstrate the work I did and thus helped me a lot.
