    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IBM (Atlanta, GA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    It was far easier than I expected it to be. The interview was primarily a behavioral interview, and the conversation was focused on what I wanted to do at IBM. The manager seemed eager to place me where I thought I would fit the best, so in that respect, it was a great talk.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IBM (Atlanta, GA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through school. On campus first round interview. 2 cases (one about creating single IT system for federated financial institution) and 1 behavioral ( all star stories.) Second round was in Chicago- group case, 1 individual case, 1 fit interview (less star stories, more tell us about yourself). They notified you on time about moving on to second rounds. Our school alumni were very good about doing a practice case and group case before the final round which was the end of Oct in Chicago.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at IBM (Atlanta, GA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Three one on one interviews in a row, two of which were behavioral and the last was a case study. The case study was very simple and behavioral interviews were just like any other behavioral interview. The questions were mostly "Tell me about X on your resume," "Tell me about a time when...," and "Why IBM?" It was a fairly straight forward interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at IBM (Atlanta, GA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Interviewed with my school's IBM recruiter and went on to apply online to the job postings I thought would best fit me. The recruiter sent the hiring managers a personal note along with my resume and application. I received an email a few weeks later asking to schedule a phone interview and asking me to rank my software skills. Phone interview went well and I got invited to an in office interview a few weeks later. Office interview started with a technical interview with a current Software Engineer and ended with a standard interview with the Manager. Received a call a few weeks later from the Manager informing me of the offer I would be receiving later that week and accepted the offer.
