Senior Technical Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee in Salt Lake City, UT
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at EMC (Salt Lake City, UT).

Interview

The overall process is usually 3 to 6 months. Best way to get hired is to already know someone who works there or be a good customer. The pay is usually pretty good but the pressure can be intense for long periods of time. Average work week was about 60 hours and there was a lot of travel! Typically you will be asked how you feel about travel and working a few extra hours.

Interview Questions

  • Describe a time when you have had to diffuse a potentially volatile situation in the work place. Describe how you diffused an angry customer.   Answer Question

Negotiation

I was pretty much told what they were willing to pay and to take it or leave it.

    Senior Technical Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Melbourne (Australia)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Melbourne (Australia)) in January 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process I had with EMC was 10 years back, and it was pretty simple. I only had one group interview, and then I got offer. But it took more than 1-2 months as the process was very slow, which is understandable for large corporation like EMC.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Sydney (Australia)) in July 2010.

    Interview

    Was referred by an existing employee I met at a conference.

    Steps:

    - Phone
    - One-on-one with the hiring manager
    - Technical/Strategy with the team-lead
    - Personality with executive 1/2
    - Personality with executive 2/2

    Overall, of any interview I've ever been involved with, this the most in-depth from a background perspective.

    My online activity for blogging, twitter and various commenting on sites was brought up. Something as recent as I posted on a site the night before, was a discussion point in the interview the following morning. I was extremely impressed with their HR.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you think of product X for market Y. Can it be improved? Would you scrap it? Would you merge it with another?, if so - which?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was very happy with the offer, negotiation wasn't necessary - as they simply doubled my previous salary.
