    Interview

    Takes a long time overall, about a month. Lots of interviews to complete and lots of technical questions. Some of the interviewers were not prepared. They have don't appear to have much interview guidance so interview is a bit haphazard.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Hopkinton, MA) in September 2015.

    The interview process was expedient and fair. They began with face-to-face interviews and progressed into phone interviews with higher up directors and vice presidents. The questions started out a typical, then effortlessly transcended into a personable two-way conversation between the interview and the interviewee. Definitely a positive experience with a company that is definitely worth the time to consider when applying.

    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

    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.
