    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at EMC in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview processes were very straight forward. I was contacted by HR for an initial phone screening before being contacted by the hiring manager for another experience screening (essentially wanting to hear about what I did at previous jobs/projects work on). They then brought me in for an onsite interview which took almost a full work day before giving me an offer a couple days later. The whole process took about two weeks.

    Interview Questions
    • I was given an hour, a computer with a set up environment, and an hour to create as much of a "database system". The general idea was to create a program that allowed users to interact through a command prompt interface and create/modify new and existing "databases" in the form of xml documents. The problem was intimidating at first, but once broken down into steps it really wasn't too bad.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    EMC sent me a benefits package to look over, as well as a base salary and additional bonuses. The offer was significantly higher than I expected, and any other companies had offered up to that point. I took it without hesitation.

    Interview Details

    Contact via email to set up a talk. I expect it would be a talk with HR. But, it turned out to be a technical interview. I didn't prepare for that. I was asked about very low-level C programming questions, such as address computation and pointers. The interview process is really bad.

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at EMC.

    Interview Details

    There was a written test which mainly tested on aptitude. Then there was the technical round of interview which focused on concepts; I was asked to write a program to implement binary search tree and other OOPS related concepts. Some folks were asked database heavy questions. Then the final HR interview which was just a formality.
