Systems Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX

Application Details

I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at IBM in September 2010.

Interview Details

As an IBM employee about to be laid off due to project contract termination, I applied for another IBM position. Since I still had an IBM manager, the application was sent to him. Although the position was outside my manager's team, he attempted to interview me for the position. At the end of the interview, he felt that I had not had time on the systems in question, and could therefore not recommend me for what would seem to be a transfer. This seemed odd, since admins on systems of the type in question had been calling me to help them with their problems. It became evident to me that I had surpassed the level of income allowed for my position, and for the position I was applying for. I was making too much money.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at IBM in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    The position was for the role of a C++ developer.
    There was a one on one interview with 2 members of the IBM team.Question were asked from Data structures and Pl/sql.It was surprising that only one question was asked on c++ when the role clearly stated
    "C++ developer".On asking the reason on why the emphasis was not on C++-the answer was that they were trying to cover entire open systems programming background..
    That is when I left.

    Interview Details

    The interview consisted of 3 rounds. 2 Telephonic and one face to face HR round . Telephonice Technical interviews went for around 45 minutes. For the HR round , the HR as it seems was busy when I was called in for the interview. So I had a telephonic interview with a senior Manager or something who was trying to negotiate on the salary . And we couldn't agree.
