Business Development Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and 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.
Interview Question – If you wanted to market IBM services to a company how would you approach them, what would your initial steps be? View Answer
Negotiation Details – Long and arduous and the local office was at odds with the Calgary office. The Calgary office promised one thing and the local office ignored that and offered half the value.
Business Development Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
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.
Interview Question – Why should we hire you over anyone else in the room? View Answer
