Senior Consultant Interview

Application Details

I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at IBM.

Interview Details

Initial interview with the recruiter was a horrific experience. The recruiter could not stick with his schedule appointments and left me hanging many times. I quit trying because that's not the type of business I'm going to deal with - I'm sure this is a group-by-group basis, I just happened to connect with one of the worst. Blah

    Interview Details

    Part of acquisition as most people are. I just had to fill out paperwork to make the transition. There are lots of hiring freezes and I wouldn't apply if I had the option. The company is huge and you are literally just a number.

    Interview Details

    Highly persuasive recruiter talking me into going to a career day where I ran the gauntlet. Received an offer the next day. Then the legal department delayed the proceedings for 10 weeks while they decided what to do about my non-compete clause with current employer.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    They interviewed 6 rounds, and made a decision to offer. The offer they gave was for a lower position than what I applied for. Other IBM friends told me that it is an insult. I told the same and declined the offer. The offer they gave was even lower than my current pay.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at IBM in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Initially I was contacted by an IBM HR contractor who conducted the initial phone screening and first interview setup. First interview consisted of a 30 minute technical phone screening. The interviewer was a regular employee who had far less experience than I had. Thus, the questions were very easy and the interview ended early. Second interview was another technical phone screen from a manager interested in adding me to his project.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were too difficult or unexpected   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The HR consultant made an initial offer matching my current salary. I countered and asked for 5k more. She had to present the counter to her superiors who approved the counter. Don't know if I left money on the table.
