    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at EMC Consulting (Seattle, WA) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Seattle EMC Isilon office asked me to take all day off and had me interview with each of the team members. I would say the interview process wasn't terribly formalized or difficult, but depending on the person interviewing I wouldn't say it was easy either. Most people seem friendly. I sensed some tension with management when the employees interviewed me. HR and Management strung me along forever and after a full day of interviewing never had the decency to email or call me that I didn't get the position. This is unprofessional and disrepectful and it's how I perceive working for this company might be.

    Solutions Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EMC Consulting (San Francisco, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Recruiter called me and explained the requirement. Had 3 phone interviews with Technology directors and in person discussions with team i was "supposed" to join in. Whole process took 2 months to complete especially because of the slow response from their side. I had to sent 10 emails and phone calls atleast to proceed to next step. Ultimately everything went fine and then the waiting begins.. No response for 1.5 weeks and ultimately recruiter called me only to say that because of "strategy changes", they are not able to forward an offer. I was sad but glad it is finally over.

    Solutions Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at EMC Consulting (New York, NY) in May 2010.

    Interview

    May 2010 I got an email from a recruiter that wanted to speak with about a opportunity at EMC.
    Spoke with the recruiter the same day in the morning for 10min, letting them know to submit me for Solutions Architect opportunity. Then 20min later got a call from an EMC (rep) and schedule a technical phone interview for the following day. the next day EMC tried their best to grilled me on exchange 2003/2007/2010 for 2 hours but after the interview I felt confident I did well.
    The following morning the same EMC rep contact me again to schedule a second around technical interview which was a week later. I was interviewed by a in-house Senior EMC exchange architect. and was grilled on exchange design, deployment, troubleshoot, migrations, and best practice approach scenarios. I did well on everything expect for his exchange 5.5 migration questions. the following day once again I got a call from the EMC rep and was told I did great on both technical screening and and will do a presentation on for the final interview in front of a panel. She emailed me a scenario and told me she will contact me to schedule the final interview date. I started my proposal presentation and finish it in 3 hours. A week goes by No call back. I try to contact the emc rep for 2 weeks and also had the recruiter to contact her as well. I finally got in contact with her and was told the presentation interview are for direct hire and I applied for a contract position which only requires to technical screening. next she congratulated me and said that they are placing me on a project in NYC next week to start. the following week no calls from the EMC rep. After tracking her down same Bull crap she gave me "we have projects where placing you on one this week". After 4 weeks I am still waiting to be place on a project and now we are in July 2010.

    My colleagues and peers consider me a exchange expert, and I have the track record to prove it.

    If you consider yourself an expert in your field dont allow EMC to waste your time like I did!
