    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at EMC in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    From the perspective of a recent college grad: the hiring process begins with a phone screen, basic in nature with topics such as what the company does, what the position entails, some soft skills questions, etc. Another phone screen occurs a couple weeks after, this one more technical in nature asking about programming concepts in a programming language the interviewee is comfortable with and some general programming knowledge.

    After this is an invitation to interview in person, on-site. This is a two hour or longer interview that is conducted by multiple interviewers. Some interviewers test soft skills, others technical knowledge. Interviewees may be asked to solve problems with psuedo-code or demonstrate execution of algorithms. After some time an offer may be extended to the interviewee.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions regarding the scalabilty and efficiency of an algorithm or method.   Answer Question
