    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at EMC (Hopkinton, MA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online. Received call from HR within a day. He yawned in my ear for the entire call and apparently thought that was okay. Was a bit rude as well. After a few standard questions, went straight to salary requirements. This Sr. position salary was $6K lower than my previous job which was not sr. level. He said he would check on bonus or any other way to match that and get back to me the next day. I never heard from him again. Sent a follow up email a week later but he didn't have the courtesy to answer it. Very disappointing experience with this company that allegedly has such a great reputation. Imagine listening to someone yawning in your ear during an interview!

    Service Account Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at EMC (Phila, PA).

    Interview

    It was many years ago when EMC was a few hundred people. I interviewed with two managers and was hired the next day. They didn't seem too concerned about whether I would cut it or not. They also hired another 20 guys, across the U.S. the same month. About 50% were gone 3 months later, by their own choice. It was a very hard company to work for then, If you didn't like the travel, all nighters, weekends, being called out of bed for a service call, you didn't make it.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Offer and acceptance. They offered a 20% raise from my previous job and I was 23. I said yes.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at EMC (Research Triangle Park, NC) in June 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing really difficult if can talk fluently about everything on your resume. It is very important because I was specially asked on projects I had put on my resume and given scenarios and told to explain how I would implement those in my projects.   Answer Question
