Very long process. Three telephone screens -- first with HR, second with peer consultant, third with consulting management. The next phase is a face-2-face all-day interview blitz. 4 more rounds of interviews and finish the day with a group case study.

Interview Questions

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at IBM in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted in August for a resume drop, then contacted again in September for interviews. Flown out to NYC office for interviews in late September. Interviews lasted only one morning, consisting of 1 case and 2 behavioral. My interviewer for the case was very unprepared and was looking up her case while I gave my "tell me about yourself" talk. Behavioral interviews were pretty standard. After the interview, I was told decisions would not be made until November. In the first week of November I was emailed saying I was still under consideration. After 2 weeks of not hearing anything, I emailed the recruiter and was replied to with a rejection.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at IBM in October 2008.

    Interview Details

    I had an initial interview on the first day consisting of behavorial questions. The second day I had 3 rounds of interviews with three different individuals. One only really mattered because he was the hiring manager. The main qualities he was looking for was leadership and the ability to learn things quickly. Another question that was asked frequently was why did I interview for a consulting position? Why do I want to go into consulting?

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at IBM in October 2007.

    Interview Details

    In-office interview consisted of several one-on-one sessions with employees of varying staff levels. The majority of questions were either behavioral or experience-focused. That is, very few questions were hypothetical, case-based or brain teasers. HR personnel were friendly and helpful. Interviewers were also cordial. Selling point from an employer perspective was earning potential.
