Intern Interview

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at IBM in April 2010.

Interview Details

I applied online to a posting that I saw on the IBM careers page; I filled everything out and uploaded a resume. Because I do not live in the state in which I applied for, I received a call from the manager I would report to and set up a telephone interview. The interview, itself, lasted about an hour and included a range of questions (he was required to ask a set given by IBM, but others were more job specific to the position I applied for). He let me know that I fit the mold they were looking for and I would hear back within a few days. He called, a few days later, while I was sitting in my accounting class and left a voicemail letting me know he recommended that HR proceed with the hiring process. HR emailed me, about a week later, with a link to a more in-depth job application and a link to IBM's intelligence test, the IPATO. After completing these online the night I received them, I got a call from the HR recruiter a week later letting me know that my offer was approved and I would be getting an email shortly. Hours later, I received the email with an attachment inviting me to join their team (it also gave details with pay, etc). I accepted via email and start once this semester ends.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at IBM.

    Interview Details

    After applying, you are sent a link to an online reasoning exam (IPAT Online) consisting of two sections: number series and arithmetical problems. The number series is relatively similar to the online training posted by some of the banks (Morgan Stanley has something of this sort on their website). If your results are good enough, your CV is then going to be evaluated and you will be called to an assessment center.

    Interview Questions
    • Cannot disclose as it was part of the online agreement I signed when taking the IPAT test.   Answer Question
