    Business/Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Markham, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Employee in Markham, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at IBM in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through IBM Careers. Then they asked me to finish IPAT test. After one week, I got a phone call from manager and scheduled remote interview. There are two interviewers, one is manage, another is database architect. It's about half an hour. Questions about the project I have involved, volunteer experience. Although they don't expect database experience, I bet that will be a great asset.

    Release Coordinator/Project Manager Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Markham, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Employee in Markham, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at IBM in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received a request for interview even before completing the online pre-employment test, which I found a little odd. The interview was extremely easy. Coming from an EE background with a lot of software experience, they asked me nothing about my dev experience and the job seemed pretty useless. Unlike most of the positions at IBM, the interviewers were a lot older and the team seemed a little boring.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview was really easy, they talked about the position/team for most of the time, and the only thing they asked me was if I was comfortable in a non-dev position.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The impression I got from the team was that the position would be really mundane and repetitive, and that I would have a lot of free time. As an intern, I don't think this is the best use of an internship as you should try to be learning as much as you can through working like a dog in a sweatshop.
