    Basic behavioral interview, nothing surprising. Most questions were about my work and leadership experience. I had to interview with 3 IBM employees

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. It was cut and dried. They named a price
    and no room for negotiation. I figured I just
    needed to work hard to earn more.

    Interview Details

    Pretty straight forward. Multiple email interactions with HR filling out general information. Phone interview asking basic resume questions. Group interview day. About 40 or so candidates. Went through a presentation about the company and what your role would be in sales followed by two one on one interviews. Expenses were paid to travel to interview location. Very relaxed process.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at IBM in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    They were phone interviews. 2 phone interviews with very nice poeple. They called me to schedule the interviews. The entire process was done quickly, which is more than can be said for most companies. There were no technical questions. They just wanted to see what type of personality I had. Very high regard for the process.
