Application Details

I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at IBM in May 2011.

Interview Details

Received an email months after I applied saying I was selected for a phone interview. Selected a date and a representative from the local IBM office called me. 14 out of the 15 minutes we talked, I was asking various questions about the position. Received an email the next day to take the IQ/Reasoning test which was simple considering I took it 2 am in the morning and passed. In a few weeks another phone interview was setup and 14 out of the 15 minutes I was asked questions about how I would react to certain situations. Very simple and straight forward until 3 months went by and I did not hear about any updates. Then received a phone call and an offer in my email for a part-time position.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at IBM in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    There was two rounds prior to interview. Initial round was aptitude; half of questions from numerical patterns(Series) and others from sections like percentage,ratio, work etc. both has 18 questions. There was time barrier of 2.15 minutes. No negative marking were in that. Second round was easier than first one; consists of language assessment questions consists of grammar, active passive, business letter formats and all. Those questions can be answered quickly by practicing previous year questions from indiabix and m4maths. Again time limit was there, but that time limit was less stringent compared to first round. on second day there was one to one Interview. it was the easiest round in that they are checking your confidence and communication skeel only. interviewers are very friendly. overall it was a best experience.

    Interview Questions
    • interview questions were easy
      they asked me about my academics interest and gave some situation like if you are project team leader of five members how will you manage team? or asked about why you want to join IBM ?
