Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at IBM.

Interview Details

IBM started with an online aptitude test. Questions were very much confusing, and i dint see the point of those.
After that interview process was very smooth. Though they dint gave choice for location. They just choose randomly people on based of written for various locations.
They did gave many offer letters but the package was not up to what other companies offers for same position. Even the don't have much perks as other IT companies of same league

Interview Questions
  • I dont remember the exact question, but they grilled us down in C programming.
    You must have deep C knowledge to clear C interview process.
