    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Submit an online application through their Jobnet portal. Make sure to read all the criteria in the job description because the automatic system could weed you out easily if you are willing to travel 4 days but have a preference to travel 3 days. After I submitted the application I heard back with in a week then had 3 rounds of interviews in the same day on after another. Then I heard back that Friday.

    3 part interview: (1) case and (2) behavioral. Behavioral interviews are straightforward. Case interview is set-up to be easy. Make sure to ask pertinent questions while solving the case. Company tends to focus on fit, so the behavioral interviews are more favored.

    Applied online, there might have been a gpa requirement. Took almost a month before receiving a call for interview.had interviews, was pretty standard like any other software engineer internship interview, just read the standard prep books. It should be pretty easy, but should probably review basic widely seen algorithms

    Big Data Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at IBM.

    Interview Details

    The process wasn't tough. They basic questions about Big Data and that was it. To be honest I didn't expect it to be so easy. First was an HR phone round. Then my to-be (now) manager spoke on the phone and asked me about my goals - short term and long term. Then there was a technical round. They gave me a test to complete on their tool. The test was easy. Main thing was this test where they wanted to test whether I can work with their tool or not. Once this was done, I was invited on-site and made to interact with the team and they asked some technical questions. That was it.

    Simple and was not that professional. Process by itself didn't take much time as I was already a contractor. Need to do lots of salary negotiations. Process took long time and as its a big company. Benefits are good...but negotiation is important.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at IBM.

    Interview Details

    I am currently waiting to hear back from IBM to have a 3rd round interview with an IBM office. So far, this process has been very enjoyable. Every person I have spoken with has been great and very helpful. I had a first round on my college campus, and a second round over the phone. My only complaint so far has been the time it takes for this interview process to move along.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at IBM.

    Interview Details

    Got invited to an Assesment Day after having applied to the position online. The Assesment Day was a very warm and comfortable experience, however somewhat challenging, naturally. The Assessment Day consisted of three different parts (these do not always remain the same) as I've understood. I felt it was a lot about getting the right personality rather than getting the applicant with the most matching background, which I found very modern and smart.
