    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at IBM (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Really short and simple. It seemed as though they really knew what they were looking for. I didn't know if I wanted to work for them again but in the interview they really turned my feelings around. I really hope that I get the job there and I am able to utilize my talents for IBM once again.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at IBM (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    A few case questions, but nothing to difficult. Went through my resume and had a few questions about my prior jobs and what they were. Also called my references which were listed on my resume. It was a pretty laid back interview, but it seemed like they had dozens of applicants for only a couple jobs.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at IBM (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    The initial interview was a quick phone call, which was quickly followed up with an email asking for an in-person interview with 3 senior team members. The 3 meetings were back to back, where I sat in one room, and they came in. This seemed to be a super interview day as I noticed a few others there for the same position.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at IBM (New York, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through college job board. Heard back about 2 weeks later.

    The interview consisted of 2 behavioral interviews and one technical interview.

    In the technical interview, they provide a case study which you are supposed to evaluate and explain your thought process to the interviewers. If you get stuck, they push you along and try to set you in the right direction.

    The behavioral interviews were just like any behavioral interviews. They ask about your strong/weak points, where you're looking to be in 5 years, team projects you've worked on, etc.
