    Specialist Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Hopkinton, MA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was relatively simple. I got an email saying they want me to come in for an interview - I was not asked for a phone interview. Met with 4 different guys for a total interview time of 2 hours. Asked standard questions about my capabilities to do the job. Didn't ask any hard questions. Seemed a bit rushed though. I didn't hear back for a few weeks and when I contacted the HR rep she told me that hiring for the position had been put on hold and to "be patient". Got a phone call a few weeks after that telling me I got the job.

    When I asked about consequences of Dell merger - each employee seemed a bit hazy and wasn't sure of the effect. Only reservations I have.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at EMC.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call from a recruiter.
    This was the most unprofessional interview ever, she pressed me over an over to release my current salary history.
    Then declined to share the salary range.
    Very rude and condescending, first impression is everything I withdrew my application immediately and ended the call with the recruiter.
    So ashamed and I still refuse to believe this recruiter works for such an industry leader like EMC.

    Supply Chain Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at EMC (Hopkinton, MA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty straight-forward - send in a resume through their Careers portal and then someone from HR will contact you with more details. This initial phone call is a quick screening to make sure you're not some sort of maniac - don't sweat it, just make sure you have some basics figured out (i.e. why you want to work for EMC, etc.). You'll then be brought in for an in-person interview with your would-be supervisor.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Hopkinton, MA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I had two phone calls: one with HR and one with Hiring Manager. After that, I was invited to a on-site final interview. The process was quite fast. You would have the result of your phone interviews in around 2-4 business days. Most of the interview questions are typical questions about background, strengths, and weaknesses. Interviewers are friendly and nice.

    Senior Business Operations Analyst, Data Analytics Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hopkinton, MA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Hopkinton, MA).

    Interview

    I got a call for both the above mentioned positions. The interview process was a quick. I spoke to the HR, the to then hiring manager and immediately was called onsite the following week. The interview was wonderful and I enjoyed talking to the interviewers. After the interview I followed up with the HR every other week and got positive response from them but the after four weeks for the Data Analytics Engineer position they said that they couldn't roll out an offer (I presume it was because of hiring freeze) I completely understand but they kept me hanging in there till four weeks. For the Sr. Business Operations Analyst position, after 3 weeks I was told that I was liked by everyone but they couldn't give me the offer for the decided pay due to team budget and also said that if I agreed to it they would roll out the offer letter in next two days. And after two days the HR replies saying that unfortunately we can't give you an offer and decided to search for more experience candidate. I understand their explanations but I wish they wouldn't waste the candidates time as I already had an offer and had kept it on hold for EMC. I just don't think I will interview with EMC ever again.
