    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Electronic Data Systems (Rochester, NY) in July 2010.

    Interview

    They forgot that I was coming in for an interview so they just had some one interview me that, I latter learned had never interviewed someone before. He had no idea what to ask or say to me. I am sure most other interviews were not this way. The interview was very easy, he just looked at my resume and asked if I had any questions.

    Negotiation

    No Negotiation, I hated the current job that I was in so I jumped at this one.

    Data Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pontiac, MI
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Electronic Data Systems (Pontiac, MI) in June 2009.

    Interview

    Overview of the company and (minimal) background on what EDS acually does. Quick run down of job requirements, followed by a few questions on your skill set and how would you handle certain situations.

    The interview also shows some of the manuals and materials of thier databases and what I would be working on. She explained the dynamic of the worplace (team oriented), and that I would be crossed trained in different areas to help cover for someone if need be.

    The person let me know the possiblity of long hours and frantic deadlines. I will give the interviewer credit for being honest on the current state of EDS as for as mergers (HP), clients(GM is only one in Pontiac) and cutbacks (they are only hiring temps as opposed to 'real' payroll workers).

    Interview Questions

    • Name a situation that went totaly wrong in a pervious job, and how did you handle it?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The process was through a temp agency, who really didn't know what the job consist of besides really general and cyptic job requirements. I got to the interview and the job is completely different than what was lead to believe. I was really turned off by the amount of pay for what the job requires ($8/hour), as well as the layoffs, employee pay cuts & uncertainty of the company (Thir only client in Pontiac is GM, which just filed for bankrupcy this week).

    Information Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in West Lafayette, IN

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Electronic Data Systems (West Lafayette, IN) in April 2009.

    Interview

    Went into EDS corporate headquarters in West Lafayette, IN for what would be a phone interview. Odd? Yes. To commute for an hour just to be interviewing with several Java Developers in California. Well, initially I fielded technical Java questions with ease, as the interview continued, the interviewers were able to delve more deeply into basic topics and to find my weak areas. So this is to say that the interview got progressively more difficult. However, I felt a lot of satisfaction in being able to field questions as well as I did for the first half hour or so. The interview was quite long (over two hours), but the time passed very quickly. All in all, despite a bit of sarcasm from the interviewers after I failed to answer a question, things went well.

    I felt that I struggled throughout the latter half of the interview, but received an offer anyway...It was fun!

    Interview Questions

    • Suppose I had a listbox that populated a state and another listbox that populated a city. How would I get the first listbox to populate the second without a server request? We are looking for the use of a particular technology here.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The company did use some spurious and deceptive negotiation tactics, citing that since I had a misdemeanor on my record, that I had no room to negotiate. Since when does THAT have ANYTHING to do with negotiation. I am happy with my salary nonetheless, but oh well.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Electronic Data Systems in February 2009.

    Interview

    Interview with hiring manager plus 2 team members (non managers). Lots of talk about team, standard "talk me through your career highlights".

Not very much specific information about role interviewing for.
