    It was onsite. First it was 1-1 discussion mostly about my background and experience. Second round was with two people. It was situational and behavioural. I even had to use the board to draw and explain.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at IBM (Dubuque, IA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    First you have to get through the resume 'filter'. Many will not. Once you do, at least in Dubuque, I had one interview & an offer (pending background check) before the end of the 1st interview. I should have been suspicious. They've been - over the years - really focused on bringing in bodies in to Dubuque.

    • Tell me about your project management experience.   1 Answer
