    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at IBM France in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I sent my resume and a cover letter to the HR department. They called me one day later to schedule an interview. So, I was interviewed four three days later. The HR called me, she asked me to present myself and my professional project in French. I did. She was kind and gave me enough time to answer her questions. But then, with no warning, an engineer started talking to me and in English (I don't have difficulties with the language) but it would have been nice to say that a technical manager is going to talk with you now. He was rude and tried to intimidate me. He asked a bunch of questions about CS/big data/data mining. I got the feeling that he had not seen my resume before, so had no idea about my curriculum or my skills. After that, I talked back with the HR, and she asked me to send her my availability dates. They never answered.

    Strategy and Technology Trainee Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at IBM France.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process started with an interview appointment at the IBM office. The interview was supposed to be with one of the managers, though I had two of them (one unexpected) on the very same day.
    The first interviewer, who couldn't find a place for the interview, asked basic questions: Why IBM? Present yourself, and so on. She was rather rude in her manners, and ended up telling me that I have a slight accent in French (I am not native French).
    The second interviewer didn't take that long to come down from his office. The interview was quite nice and the person seemed easy-going.
    After the interview, I didn't hear back from them, so I had to write them a kind e-mail asking about the current state of my application. Only after me contacting them, I was told that my application for this traineeship was rejected.

    Interview Questions
    • From the STUPID question series, that are by the ways banned for every company to use:

      -Why is the manhole cover round?
      -Are there more entrances or exits in the Parisian metro system?

      As to the first questions, I answered that making manholes round is optimal in terms of resources because round shapes have smaller surfaces than rectangular shapes for instance, but apparently the interviewer didn't like my response.
