    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Chicago, IL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewer called and told me he was leaving another meeting and needed to call back in a half hour. Called promptly a half hour later and informed me he had a hard stop at the top of the hour.
    The interview was pretty casual mainly covering what my current position entails and what my goals were.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at EMC (New York, NY) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Phone screen followed by in person with HR, Hiring Mgr and Peer. It was a pretty standard interview process which was controlled heavily by HR. The process itself was quite sterile and mostly one way. It was on par with what I would expect from a company of this size and depth. Did not get much insight into the company.

    Interaction Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Santa Clara, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was a fairly standard affair, except for the fact that I was interviewing for a creative role within an engineering-heavy company. I submitted a application through LinkedIn and received a call back from an internal recruiter a couple of weeks later. Once I interviewed with the hiring manager, things were fast tracked because I was in process with two other companies in the Silicon Valley and was able to fill a critical role within a newly formed team. Under normal circumstances, I suspect there would have been several more steps involved.

    Lead Java Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Draper, UT
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at EMC (Draper, UT) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiter for the position, he screened me then set up an on site interview with the hiring manager and someone from a corporate position (seemed like a logistics or IT Director overseeing the new draper project, very intelligent and intimidating). After some conversation it seemed I wasn't a great fit for the position I was interviewing for, excellent questioning revealed my lack of singular vision of my career goals which is what they informed me they were seeking. It was implied I might be a better fit in another position but I got flustered and walked away instead of pursuing that angle.

    Positive Experience
    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.

    Multiple interviews with Program Manager and Regional Support Managers over a six month period. I was referred by a Sales Engineer so the interview process was relatively informal.
