    Interview Details

    I did not go through an interview or hiring process. I came to EMC by way of an acquisition. I did speak with a few HR resources as we got going, after we were purchased, but nothing formal like a sit down interview with questions.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at EMC.

    Interview Details

    Met an employee at a showcase, had my resume forwarded to his manager. The interview process was with 3 team leads and the head QA manager. Each 30 min interview just drilled down my resume and only one technical question because we ran out of things to talk about. It seemed like as long as you can get one team lead to like you then you'd get the go ahead. All interns also start in QA apparently.

    Senior Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Alexandria, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Alexandria, VA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at EMC in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very impersonal and matter of fact. Nice folks but lacking clear focus and direction; seemed to be reactive as opposed to proactive in their workplace. This is clearly a large company with process and policy hurdles at every turn - if you're OK with a company that moves at a snail's pace, than go for it. Just remember, what you see in the beginning is likely what you'll see once you're hired.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really - most of their questions came straight out of book on interviewing as opposed to the position in question.   Answer Question

    CollegeStudent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at EMC in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was first contacted at my college career fair and I made great conversation with one of the representatives who then decided to take two of my resumes and put one in a general application pool and the other in his departments own application pool. I contacted them the next day to make sure they got my application after applying online and to show initiative. I had a phone interview not too long after this maybe 2-3 weeks later while maintaining contact with the company. The phone interview was the only interview I had and in this they just wanted to know my interests and to get a more detailed look into what I do and why. I was told that they were going to move forward with other candidates so I asked the manager what I could improve on in my interview or skills and he said I was great in everything except talking about what I knew about EMC. I was contacted several months later and was asked if I was still interested in the job so I accepted the position and I feel very lucky to have been given the opportunity.

    Interview Questions
    • Make sure to do your research on a company it really pays off to do a simple google search and try to get an understanding of their products or what they do.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate anything I felt that the pay was more than fare for a college intern, and the vacation days were nice.

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

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at EMC.

    Interview Details

    After the phone screen, I met with both the manager and the tech lead via phone. Both help strong conversations. The in person interview was with the same two folks, so more of a formality.

    Interview Questions
    • Past experience was tricky, as I was still in college, so relating stories as an intern and help desk deck to an enterprise IT org was tricky.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation, as I had no leverage.

    I applied online – interviewed at EMC.

    Interview Details

    The questions were easy. They asked what you put in the resume. Make sure you could answer what you have in the resume.

    The challenge was the question asked by the leader of the group. He asked non-technical question to see how you handle the situation.
