It was a good interview overall . There were some behavioral questions, some conversation, and plenty of time to ask questions. Some questions were skill seed and others personality based

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at IBM (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Recruiter called me out of the blue to see if would be interested in working in a certain division. Details were sketchy, and it was hard to imagine why I would want to move given the longevity at my current employer as well as the work-life balance I have. Generally superficial process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IBM (Dubuque, IA) in November 2009.

    Interview

    I got approached by a recruiter who saw my resume on monster.com and suggested I apply for that position online. When I did, I notified him and he then forwarded my info to the HR manager. I answered some 5 questions about the salary, relocation and citizenship status. I had to wait 2 weeks before they set up a phone interview with a manager in New York. It was ok I guess, I didn't do so terrible like the interview with HP but it was average. After a week or so I emailed the HR manager to see what the status was and she told me that the 1 phase of the new hires which started in Nov got filled but she is going to contact me again for the 2 or 3rd phase which they expect to be starting in Dec and Jan '10. The position has been posted for like 5 months already and they need about 50 analysts in total. Hopefully they call back :)

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at IBM (San Francisco, CA) in March 2009.

    Interview

    Two intital telephone interviews; one with a team lead another withing hiring manager. Follow-up telephone interview a week later with hiring manager. Standard interview questions. I closed the interview by asking the hiring manager what are your greatest challenges for the next 30 days? Next 90 days? This gave me the opportunity to offer (high level) solutions to those challenges, thereby positioning myself in the hiring managers mind as the person to solve those issues.

    Negotiation

    Although I attempted to negotiate, terms were not very flexible. My advice is if you don't ask, you'll never know what you may have missed. I heard recently that women are still paid less than men for the same work -- the reason? It's not because of gender, but that by nature women are more likely to accept an initial offer, compared to men, who +90% of the time, will successfully negotiate one or more terms.
