I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at IBM in September 2012.

Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst
Westford, MA

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at IBM in May 2012.

Interview Details – I was contacted for an interview about two weeks after I submitted my resume for the position. After an initial phone screening, I was set up for a phone interview with two of the hiring managers at the same time. A week later I was contacted to come in for a formal interview at their offices in Westford where I met with two more hiring managers. The interview was about an hour long and detailed all of the functions I would be performing for the team.

Interview Question – How will your experience to date help you in this job role? And how will you make up for those experiences that we outlined that you don't have.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – It was a very difficult decision between them and another firm... In the end, the other firm's benefits (and higher salary) were too good to pass up.
