    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at IBM (New York, NY).

    Interview

    There was a long period of waiting during the hiring freeze after an IBM employee reached out as initial interest. After hiring freeze ended, two customary HR interviews took place, and I was hired. This process was unorthodox compared to standard hiring process; the standard is to begin with university internship, post internship interview, then employer decision.

    Interview Questions

    • 30 minute intelligence test composing of many IQ-esque questions. (Matrix transpositions, pattern matching, simple math with large numbers, etc.)   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiation attempted, employer inflexible on offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at IBM (New York, NY) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Was contacted in August for a resume drop, then contacted again in September for interviews. Flown out to NYC office for interviews in late September. Interviews lasted only one morning, consisting of 1 case and 2 behavioral. My interviewer for the case was very unprepared and was looking up her case while I gave my "tell me about yourself" talk. Behavioral interviews were pretty standard. After the interview, I was told decisions would not be made until November. In the first week of November I was emailed saying I was still under consideration. After 2 weeks of not hearing anything, I emailed the recruiter and was replied to with a rejection.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you had to convince someone of an idea.   Answer Question
