Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IBM (Burlington, VT) in November 2014.

Interview

Met with recruiters on campus after a quick introduction at a career fair. They asked me some questions about my experience as well as a few behavioral questions. They then told me about the location and position in more detail. I was then invited to an on site interview which took almost a full 8 hours. I met with 10 different employees who ranged from easy going all the way to curmudgeonly old farts who asked trick questions so they could see how you react under pressure.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at IBM (Hopewell Junction, NY) in August 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was the next day and lasted 0.5 hours. We then set up an on-site interview for a few days later. The on-site interview lasted about 7 hours as I was interviewed by 8 people for 3 or 4 different jobs. Some interviewers were there to offer insight to the hiring managers. Got a tour of the facility, free lunch in their dining hall, and they rented me a car to drive their since I live over 50 miles away from the site. Things felt good after the interview. About a week later I got emails from human resources about requesting work history, address history, and background check authorization. I also got a link to the "dreaded" IBM IPAT test, which is very similar to a GRE test, but a little more difficult (I highly recommend doing the practice questions they give you). A few days later I noticed that my application status on IBM's website was "offer" and later that day I received an offer via email. Neato! I did not try to negotiate as the offer was VERY acceptable. Process from application to offer acceptance took about 6 weeks.

    Interview Questions

    • I was questioned thoroughly on the contents of my resume, as my experience made me a prime candidate for the position even though I was fresh out of college. They were keen on seeing if I could intelligently and succinctly explain my technical experience, whether it be from class projects or elective undergraduate research. I believe I also demonstrated my willingness to learn while on the job (lean manufacturing, etc.) as well as enthusiasm for the position and the company. I was also asked typical behavioral questions one would expect.   Answer Question

    Found the job opening on IBM website. Applied with just a resume. Received an e-mail for a phone interview a week later.
