    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at IBM (Research Triangle Park, NC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Ended up applying online through a job board. I received a phone call about 1 week later from a staff member there. He went over basic things such as my resume, projects that I had worked on before, what my biggest accomplishment was. Second phone call was just verifying this information. Third was in person. A couple drawn out problem solving sessions along with meeting members of the team I would have worked with.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at IBM (Research Triangle Park, NC).

    Interview

    Was quite simple for me in that I was a contractor on a small team of contractors. Which is a good way for both potential employee to learn about IBM and also for IBM to learn about you, sort of a test drive. Key things are about execution, being thorough and thinking both big and long-term.

    Interview Questions

    • Was some time ago and really didn't do much of an interview, more of a trial. Most difficult thing was learning and programming on OS/2.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Pretty quick and simple, I had another offer at the same time. I came back with a few things I would like better, which they adjusted the salary but didn't change the vacation time.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at IBM (Raleigh, NC) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Fairly basic - I had two screening interviews and then a third in-person interview which served as the final round. You'll be interviewed by the account managers who are looking to hire so they will see if you meet their accounts needs.

    Fairly basic questions "Why are you here?" "Tell me a time where you had to source something" "Why are you leaving your current job"

    • Case Study wasn't terrible, just had to do a lot of math without a spreadsheet   Answer Question
