    Sales Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at EMC in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Screening interview with recruiter - asked basic questions that other websites covered online. Would not let me move past salary expectations - then said that i should think of this as a "lateral" move.... I assume that means my experience from a prior position has no relevance if they weren't offering a salary increase.

    Systems Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at EMC.

    Interview Details

    I was referred to the company via my network reaching out to the retained recruiter. The process, stalled at first, went very quickly to the offer. The process started with the recruiter then hiring manager, and finally with the Division Manager. My recommendation is to use your network to help you coach you on what is important to the company and the interviewer's style.

    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.
