    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at EMC.

    Interview

    I was referred to the company via my network reaching out to the retained recruiter. The process, stalled at first, went very quickly to the offer. The process started with the recruiter then hiring manager, and finally with the Division Manager. My recommendation is to use your network to help you coach you on what is important to the company and the interviewer's style.

    Negotiation

    Understand what you would consider acceptable and consider countering the offer if appropriate.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EMC in October 2013.

    Interview

    I transferred from another team internally, so the process was pretty easy, albeit slow. The paperwork and requisition approval can take a while. Once that was all done, the transition to the new team was pretty much instantaneous.

    Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in McLean, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at EMC (McLean, VA) in July 2012.

    Interview

    I had an initial interview with a recruiter who forwarded my resume to managers with openings she felt I was a good fit for. I had a phone interview with the hiring manager, a face-to-face with the hiring manager, a phone interview with another individual on the team, a phone interview with the second line manager, and a face-to-face with the second line manager. Decision making to hire seemed fairly standard, HR process seemed a little less than streamlined to get me an offer letter and a start date.

    Interview Questions

    • Upper management was much more tech savy than I have experienced at other companies. It was refreshing, but unexpected. This was demonstrated by asking for active, whiteboard solutioning as part of the interview process.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not much of a negotiation, take it or leave it.
