    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Franklin, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Franklin, MA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Went through an initial phone screening with a recruiter, then had a follow up interview over the phone with a manager. Following those they brought me in with a few other candidates that they were considering for a half day interview. The half day consisted of speaking to an employee panel, an ice breaker exercise where you sell one of the other candidates, a mock sales call, and sitting down with four managers in the office.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Hopkinton, MA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was expedient and fair. They began with face-to-face interviews and progressed into phone interviews with higher up directors and vice presidents. The questions started out a typical, then effortlessly transcended into a personable two-way conversation between the interview and the interviewee. Definitely a positive experience with a company that is definitely worth the time to consider when applying.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Hopkinton, MA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process is fairly straight forward. As an applicant I had an initial phone screen with a Recruiter, then I had another phone call with the Hiring Manager, as a final round I was brought onsite for a 2.5 hour interview with 5 team members, spending 30 minutes with each. They kept me very well informed throughout the process and gave me clear expectations for each stage in the process.

    Security Researcher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hopkinton, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at EMC (Hopkinton, MA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed with 5 different people and it felt like 5 different companies. None of the generic 'can you solve problems' questions, mostly about my experiences and knowledge. Every interviewer seemed to have their own agenda, and the result was very much a 'three blind men describing an elephant' experience for me, so I was not really quite sure what the role actually involved.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Boston, MA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    First got a call from HR on scheduling an interview with an engineer. It was phone interview and most of them were related to Computer Science basic questions regarding Algorithms and Data Structures, Analytics and Technologies that I have worked on. There was one more phone interview but that was more on what would be my responsibilities and tasks if selected and what all technologies that I would be required to learn.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Hopkinton, MA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    3 stages: initial phone screen with recruiter, 30 min phone interview with direct report, on-site interview with direct report and director.

    I was coming in with previous experience at the company so my interview process was very informal. Pretty straight forward, just reviewed my resume and was given an overview of the position.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    Two phone screens with very knowledgeable people who explained the company, it's values and the role in depth.

    Senior Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Marlborough, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at EMC (Marlborough, MA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process was easy to read, laid back and not stressful. I always tend to feel comfortable and confident in an interview situation where you are defending/selling yourself. Interviewed with 3 women in all, and that was a hurdle in and of itself (sorry not sorry for stating the truth). But I made them feel comfortable in the situation and confident in my abilities.

    Interview Questions

    • General finance questions and SAP/EPM system use. pretty basic honestly and i had never used EPM before this roll (all systems function the same way). Asked about some accrual accounting which i thought was odd since im not an accountant.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was a little tricky, i only have 2yrs of experience so technically i shouldnt be senior and i interviewed as a principal FA! average at the company for senior is 80-85ish. they gave a low number of 71. i countered and asked not above average or below. firm at 80. Said cant do that since we're not at corporate. came back with 72k. At first it was like a slap in the face an extra 1k ha. But truly thankful for this role since i was desperate to get back on my feet! Made me know it was the right decision because almost 2 months after i started working i got a call back from some of the other corporate FA positions asking to interview. So in the end it worked out.

    Senior Technical Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hopkinton, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Hopkinton, MA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an in-house EMC recruiter, who located me on LinkedIn. We had an in-depth conversation, then additional phone interviews were set up. I talked with the hiring manager first, then I was brought in to the office to speak with the hiring manager's boss. After that, I was supposed to have a phone interview with another manager, but rather than speak on the phone, I switched my schedule and went in to their office. The process was professional, but I had no idea about where I stood until I got the offer. They played their cards close, and so did I.
