Intern Interview

Application Details

interviewed at IBM in June 2013.

Interview Details

Quite fair. Being the first exposure to the STAR method of interview it initially was challenging but the people were great and understanding. The panel gave me enough time to think through what I was saying, were really patient. For an internship position it was a bit more than I expected though, a three people panel was quite a bit too much.

    I applied online – interviewed at IBM.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and about a month and a half later heard back about wanting to speak more about my application. First interview was over the phone and not so formal - got to learn about the position and company a little more. Second interview was more formal - was asked to talk about myself and my related experience; strengths, weaknesses; other typical interview questions. Got offered the position within the same week.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at IBM in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Two interviews . The interviewer tried his best to make me feel comfortable . Standard questions of Careercup . And nothing of the sort like digging in deep to find new answers to questions . They are pretty happy if you give the correct answer . The work culture is great and compared to other companies where interns are not treated properly , everybody is helpful here . A great place to work .

    The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at IBM.

    Interview Details

    Applied through their official online career website for a generic software engineering intern position. Was contacted about a month later by who would later be my first-line manager via email. Set up an in-person interview and met with the aforementioned manager on that day. Discussed my previous work experience and what I would like to do post-graduation. He then brought me around part of the office to 2 different software engineer's offices to discuss more technical details. Discussed more technical projects I've worked on and what classes I have taken so far and what I still have to take to get my degree.

    No technical questions were asked by anyone. It took about 4 weeks after my interview to receive an offer.

    Friendly enough - asked mostly about interests. Asked a few situational questions. No weird ones at all, and just a couple of the situational ones. Examples: When have I managed a task that I am proud of; describe the experience? What is a class in school that I particularly liked and why?
