    The process took 2 months - interviewed at IBM in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was a bit longer than usual. It mainly consisted of phone interviews since everyone is remote. I was asked questions regarding my technical and business process background. This consisted of 5 phone interviews prior to an offer being made. Everyone was pretty easy and wanted to understand my background and how it could fit with their current needs.

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at IBM in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    Initial communications went very well - the representatives are excellent. Phone interviews were very typical. Interview day was fun - about 30 candidates there. We broke up into teams for a case study, then made our presentation in the boardroom. Later there was a set of 3 face to face interviews. Overall it was fun, and there was plenty of drinks and food provided. Also, all travel expenses were covered.
