Senior Technical Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Salt Lake City, UT
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
Application Details

I interviewed through a recruiter. 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 Questions
  • 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.

    The initial interview was at a recruiter's office and was strictly technical. The second interview was made up of 3 pieces.

    A: 5 separate interviews wit 5 different people, each once focusing on a separate area (personality, resume, networking, OS, storage)

    C: was an 1:1 with the hiring boss.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney (Australia)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. 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 Questions
    • 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.
