Average Interview

Application

I applied online – interviewed at IBM.

Interview

Applied on the website and received an email stating that I was selected for an interview. Was then flown on site for three 30-minute interviews with three different managers. Each one was for a specific purpose: behavioral, technical, and case study. Heard back about 2-3 weeks later that I got the position.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at IBM.

    Interview

    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

    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.

    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.
