Interview Details

Process was dragged out, each stage took longer than they said it would, and apart from the final interview not particularly involved. I had a phone screen followed by a quick group panel round with a group case and then a 1:1 interview with a partner. The phone screen was pretty straightforward (why IBM, tell me about yourself, etc.); the panel was trivia based, and the interview was unexpectedly long.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at IBM in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Met a recruiter at an event and was invited to an interview afterwards. Arrived at IBM with a group of other students (not all of them were in business) and we were put through some icebreakers. We were then led into a case analysis, where everyone was split into a team and was required to give a presentation. After some deliberation from the consultants, they chose several people to move on to 1-1 interviews. This interview as about an hour long and conducted by a senior consultant or partner.

    Consulting Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at IBM in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Attended a recruiting session held at my university. I managed to give my resume directly to one of the employees while networking. I also submitted an online application as it is a requirement. I was contacted 1 week later to attend a group case session at the IBM headquarters in Markham. The session had about 14 people and a 8 person panel. There was an icebreaker game to test candidate knowledge on the company and then we were split into groups of 4 to work on a case. We were only given 15 mins to make a recommendation and 3 mins to present it to the panel and other candidates. It was followed by a Q & A session with the panel and selected candidates were invited to an interview that followed immediately after. The interview was 1-on-1 and took about 45 mins. It was fairly straight-forward - most questions asked more detail about the jobs I had listed in my resume. If you make it to the next round, you would be contacted to complete an online assessment test. I was contacted 1 week after doing the test about an offer. The entire process took about 4 weeks up to the point of receiving an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • The online assessment was the hardest stage as each question had a time limit of 2.5 mins.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate. The terms were above what I had expected and I was applying as an entry-level position with no previous work experience in that field.
