Application Details

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at IBM in July 2013.

Interview Details

applied online and received call from manager's assistsnt to schedule interview by phone. all parties were professional and friendly. the interview took place within one week of the initial application. the interviewer asked standard questions, and spent most of the time inquiring about previous experiences and skills acquired. after the call, the only response came from the online tool for which you needed to check for new status. the post interview communications is weak compared to other company processes I hsve been exposed to.

    Usually through the internal network or promotions. When there is a specific need for an industry or technical expertise, they post a job position for this. Go through a HR screening process first followed by 2-3 rounds of interviews.

    I can't really remember much. Received a call from the recruiter who asked if I was interested in the position. I then had a phone interview with the HR department. After that I had to take a personality test. Once that was completed, I had an in person interview with HR. After that process I met with the supervisor of the deaprtment and discussed the duties of the job. I walked around the office to take note of the cubes, offices and all around location. Once that was completed, I met with her boss and discuss speciifics. Salary, benefits, etc.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days - interviewed at IBM.

    Interview Details

    I was approached by a recruitment agency and invited to interview. I was met by an local interview board consisting of the HR Manager, the Ops Manager and the Marketing Manager as well as an head office Associate.

    The local board asked the normal questions about my resume and background and the Associate asked more penetrating questions about how i would approach certain situations. This was for about an hour.

    After that interview, I was asked to come back the next day by the Associate from Calgary and we had another much more informal chat.

    The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at IBM in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Phone interviewers were very nice and encouraging. I was pushed to attend a day long interview process in NYC before I felt I knew enough about the position, however. The day long interview was shockingly amateurism. A number of people were invited to the same location, but no one was there to greet us so we had to figure out what to do and where to go. When the HR people arrived, they did not have enough rooms for one on one interviews or enough interviewers so they were scrambling. They had us do a group exercise first with the same people competing for the same job, so it was rather awkward. Then we had to wait in the same room as we were called into different interviews with the same interviewers. It was not what any of us expected and most everyone commented privately how strange the process was. It was not the right cultural fit for me and my strong impression was that others felt the same. They made a bad impression on almost all of us.
