Very Easy Interview
Sales Executive Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at EMC in October 2013.
Interview Details – Initial interview was with the Recruitment team after they spent months hounding me. No indication of the expectation for the meeting, which was conducted by a typical recruiter who knew little about the Industry and read from a sheet! They did know the structure of the organisation which they insisted spending 25 mins of the allotted hour taking me through!
