    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Research Triangle Park, NC) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Five 30 minutes onsite interviews. No coding required in the interview process. Basically talked about the previous experience, resume and other technical questions. The interviewees are nice and the interview processes are more like a normal day conversation regrading to your experience.

    Note that the interview questions may vary from different teams, hard to predict what they will ask in advance.

    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.

    Negotiation

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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at EMC in January 2015.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me, set up interview. Wanted me to ask a lot of questions rather than me answer questions. Only question I was asked was, do you understand the GSAP program. Was a little odd, but then I was just grilled for questions to ask about their company. Not sure if they were looking for something specific or what.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at EMC (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through Dice and was contacted by a recruiter the same day. We set up a phone interview and he gave me an overview of the company and the GSAP program. I was then told that my resume would be forwarded to the manager, whom I later interviewed with. The entire interview was just the manager asking me what questions I had for him. He did not ask me any questions whatsoever. After the interview, I was later contacted and was told I was offered the position, which i initially accepted, but then declined upon receiving the offer letter. I accepted an offer with a another consulting company that didn't have a mandatory rule of reimbursing a training cost of $10,000 if I were to leave prior to being there for 2 years.
