Very Easy Interview

Sales Executive Interview

Sales Executive
London, England (UK)

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!

Consulting Interview

Consulting
London, England (UK)

I applied through other source and the process took 2 months - interviewed at EMC in November 2011.

Interview Details – Hour long telephone interview with a person doing the role, followed by two three hour interviews. Found out two weeks later that their preference was for an internal candidate, despite the fact that they approached me asking was I interested in interviewing for the role! which was also advertised on the web and the EMC web site. All told they don't seem that organised, the people i was talking to seemed to reach decisions by committee.
