    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at IBM in December 2007.

    Interview Details

    Day 1 - Arrived at PHL airport and was taken by Taxi into the city where we stayed at a hotel in city central. The night consisted of a banquet to welcome all potential employees and a meet a greet with the management. The atmosphere was very relaxed and informal. Dress was business casual. Speaches were made by the head of the consulting groups who were approachable afterward for questions.

    Day 2- Walked from hotel a few blocks over to the building where IBM was conducting the interviews. The conference room was bright and had a night view of the city.
    Breakfast buffet was served and there was about an hour or so to go over notes before the actual interviews started. There were 2 interviewers and times were done by time slot. Between the first and second I had 1/2 hour to prepare in which time I was able to relax and compare notes with others, and take a gander out the window.

    The interviewers were friendly and personable, no ego or condescending tones. And I still keep in touch with 1 of the interviewers to this day. Typical questions were "Why do you want to work for IBM?" "Why would you be a good fit?" "Do you have issues with traveling?" "What do you like about IBM?"

    Before the end of the second interview I was told that I would be receiving his recommendation.

    IBM visited campus, there was initial screening test then group discussions and finally technical and HR interview.
    Interviewing panel was very patient with me and sensible in asking questions. They asked very technical questions pertaining to SAP.

    Interview Details

    Two back-to-back interviews during University Recruiting session followed by more detailed telephone interviews with the team leader. First set of interviews are mainly to get a feel for broad level skills, while the interview with the team lead was much more granular about the specific role.

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at IBM in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Within a half hour of my resume hitting IBM, I got a call from an excited recruiter. He asked me a few questions and said that he was going to discuss my resume in a meeting the following day. I heard nothing for a week and a half. I called the recruiter back, the call went to voice mail, I left a message asking if there was any update on my application. He called the following day and said I was still on his spreadsheet. Later that day I got an email from another person scheduling an interview. I had the phone interview and it was more of a personality survey than anything else. It seemed to have went well.

    I never heard back from them. I did check on line and it says not selected for position. I do with IBM would have sent some form of notice. I would have liked to know what I could work on to be a more appealing candidate in the future.

    SAP Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at IBM in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for the SAP Consultant position and within 2 days received feedback from the Senior IBM Recruiter, who was very helpful. It took about 2 to 3 weeks to schedule the first phone interview where I had to tell about myself etc which went fine. The next step was the phone technical review that took about 2 to 3 weeks due to the summer vacation schedule of the IBM folks. That was also straight forward since if you know what you are talking about, the technical screener, will understand and let you move forward with the final phase of going to one of the day interviewing sessions at one of the many IBM recruiting offices. Mine was in Schaumburg, IL. You'll be given a 30 minute 'why IBM' presentation by one of their senior partners. After that there will be a team excercise related to a business case which takes a total of about 1 to 1.25 hours. You'll have to take on a portion of the business case and quickly create a presentation that will take place before a IBM panel (6 to 8). They'll ask you questions at the end and drill down to details i.e. why did you propose xx percent increase of personal etc. After that there will be lunch and you'll follow a planned schedule of 1:1 interviews. Some folks depending on the job they applied might have 3 time slots. Most of them have 2. The first one is usually with a technical person and is straight forward. The second one with a partner or associate partner who will ask you to ask him questions and what you would do if you would be the CEO etc. After that you should hear within a week from the recruiting Mananger
