Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at IBM (New York, NY).

Interview

Interview process is very laid back, there arent a lot of technical questions. IBM people are generally nice. I feel like this is the environment i would work for. However the office is very old. All ibm office are very hidden.

    Interview

    Typical interview process. Received a call a few days after submitting my application. Scheduled a phone interview which consisted of two separate 30 minute interviews. Questions were all standard (why IBM, what do we do, what does IBM stand for, what excel skills do you have etc).

    Interview

    I interviewed over the phone. There were two interviewers, usually from the division you'll be placed in once hired. Both interviewers were very friendly and weren't trying to make the interview difficult. They wanted to have a conversation and find out what kind of person you're like and how well you know the content. Overall they ask a lot of the usual interview questions, ranging from personality to technical aptitude.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at IBM.

    Interview

    I received an interview after my college job fair. It was two 1:1 interviews, each lasting 30 minutes. Interview questions were very basic and a lot of the time was spent going over my resume. It felt more like a conversation than an actual interview. It has been about 8 weeks now and I have still not heard back from them.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at IBM.

    Interview

    I interviewed for a full time financial analyst position at IBM through my school's on campus recruiting program. Not sure why I even applied as this is not a company I would work for, but I was selected for an interview and had to go. The interview was bizarre as it was not behavioral. Every question I was asked had to do with IBM, and all the interviewer talked about was the company. She didn't ask any questions about me or my resume. It was the first time ever I wasn't asked to "tell me about yourself."
