    Consultant Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Hopkinton, MA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Interviewed with four engineers, all in a single day.
    Was pretty straightforward. They did not give me
    a coding problem to solve. They all asked about my background and had me describe
    various projects that I worked on. They also described the work environment
    and culture. There was very little problem solving, even at a design / conceptual level.

    Consulting Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EMC (New York, NY) in November 2010.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter and had an initial phone screen with them. This led to a phone interview with the internal recruiter. This was followed by two separate in-person interviews. I was extended an offer fairly quickly, however it was contingent on the drug screening and background check. The background checks were outsourced and since two of the companies I had worked for were no longer in business (one went out of business, one was acquired) getting some of the info took a long time. Since I would not give notice until successful completion, this extended the process. The other issue is that all references provided must be direct managers. No other type of reference is acceptable.

    Interview Questions

    • What would be your 30, day, 60 day, 90 day and 6 month plan.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The company has a lousy vacation policy (for experienced hires who are used to more) and this is non-negotiable.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Burleson, TX) in January 2010.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of a personal interview followed by a brief extemporaneous presentation. The process was very well managed and the staff are extremely professional. I would recommend this company and its products because of the excellent service and great product line they offer. The application process and interview took about two weeks to complete.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EMC (London, England (UK)) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Hour long telephone interview with a person doing the role, followed by two three hour interviews. Found out two weeks later that their preference was for an internal candidate, despite the fact that they approached me asking was I interested in interviewing for the role! which was also advertised on the web and the EMC web site. All told they don't seem that organised, the people i was talking to seemed to reach decisions by committee.

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Steinbach (Taunus) (Germany)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    (Translated from English)

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Steinbach (Taunus) (Germany)) in April 2010.

    Interview

    Es stellte sich heraus, dass die Job-Annonce nur ungefähr 30% von dem beinhaltete, was der Einstellungsmanager vom Bewerber erwartete. Der Manager hatte auch mehr Erfahrung vom Kandidaten erwartet sowie, dass eigene Consultingtools und -Präsentationen mitgebracht werden sollten, um es dem Unternehmen zu ersparen, seine eigenen erstellen zu müssen, ohne zu verstehen, dass ein Kandidat nicht über sehr viel Insiderwissen über die Produkte und Dienstleistungen, die angeboten werden sollten, haben konnte. Die Erwartungen waren unrealistisch und unangebracht.
