    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Electronic Data Systems in April 2008.

    Interview

    I was a contractor and there was a contractor to employee conversion. The regional manager called me and offered me a job. The manager was straight to the point and told me what I could expect and what not to expect. After this verbal interview was done the manager offered me a salary with the condition of satisfactory passing of the background check and the drug test. After both of these were complete I received my offer letter and all the paperwork necessary.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Electronic Data Systems (Plano, TX) in March 2008.

    Interview

    Phone interview focused on current work and possible opportunities at EDS, there was not an open position applied for. Conversation led to a in-person meeting. Once on-site further discussion did not identify a real need for a senior manager at the time but the discussion was extremely positive and professional and seemed a very good fit in the future.

    System Administrative Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Electronic Data Systems (Tulsa, OK) in November 2007.

    Interview

    Questions were asked that pertained nothing to the job / field of work I was applying for. It seemed like the interviewer went out and googled "questions to ask in an interview" and them read them off of the paper. Questions asked were somewhere along the lines of "Have you ever been stuck in a jam and how did you get out" "Do you work well with others?" Nothing pertaining to my skills aimed at the position in question.

    Interview Questions

    • Have you ever come across a period of time where you failed at something and how did you handle that situation?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Nothing. These people are focused on one thing and that is money. The less money they have to spend on you or your salary the more money they can use to take corporate fat cats out to eat at fancy restaurants in an attempt to etter present themselves. It is every man for himself at this company with no bartering.
