Senior Technical Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee
Salt Lake City, UT

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3+ months - interviewed at EMC.

Interview Details – The overall process is usually 3 to 6 months. Best way to get hired is to already know someone who works there or be a good customer. The pay is usually pretty good but the pressure can be intense for long periods of time. Average work week was about 60 hours and there was a lot of travel! Typically you will be asked how you feel about travel and working a few extra hours.

Interview Question – Describe a time when you have had to diffuse a potentially volatile situation in the work place. Describe how you diffused an angry customer.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was pretty much told what they were willing to pay and to take it or leave it.

Very Easy Interview

Senior Technical Consultant Interview

Senior Technical Consultant
Sydney (Australia)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at EMC in July 2010.

Interview Details – Was referred by an existing employee I met at a conference.

Steps:

- Phone
- One-on-one with the hiring manager
- Technical/Strategy with the team-lead
- Personality with executive 1/2
- Personality with executive 2/2

Overall, of any interview I've ever been involved with, this the most in-depth from a background perspective.

My online activity for blogging, twitter and various commenting on sites was brought up. Something as recent as I posted on a site the night before, was a discussion point in the interview the following morning. I was extremely impressed with their HR.

Interview Question – What do you think of product X for market Y. Can it be improved? Would you scrap it? Would you merge it with another?, if so - which?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I was very happy with the offer, negotiation wasn't necessary - as they simply doubled my previous salary.
