    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at EMC in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    EMC is more worried about soft skills in the interview rather than technical expertise. The better your expertise the better the salary and position. However, without the soft skills you will not work here. I was picked up by an internal EMC recruiter then contacted by her for a 1:1 interview. She met me and walked me in to a 2:1 session. Afterwards I was asked to come back in for a final interview. It was to be 2:1 again but the person opt'd to go 1:1.

    Interview Questions
    • Most positions require RAID, networking, enterprise storage knowledge. They will ask you how much you know about EMC. They like it if you know their history a little bit.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at EMC in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had 7 rounds to clear Communication,analytic, 2 technical, Managerial, Senior managerial, HR and Director round.
    The toughest part is with the managers.. Most questions are based on your resumes. The more skills on technical language you put, the more questions are expected[ex. my resume had C, C++, Java, Unix etc]
    Make sure you know the basics on what you have updated.
    Communication and confidence will be your plus point.
    Talk only upto the point and know much on the networking part.
    EMC is one of the best place to work at.

    Interview Questions
    • Most difficult, when you are not able to connect to a server what would you check first?
      what is DNS and how does it work?
      Few questions on C++, JAVA were also there like what are class, call by value and call by reference example.
      Top down approach, bottom up approach. How does the operating system works?
