    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at IBM.

    Interview Details

    Came to campus. Had a long and tiring two-day process. Major eliminations were in the aptitude and GD rounds. Took 90% of the people who qualified GD and appeared for the PI. PI was a breeze and was more of an idle early morning banter.
