    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at IBM (Endicott, NY) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Received an email months after I applied saying I was selected for a phone interview. Selected a date and a representative from the local IBM office called me. 14 out of the 15 minutes we talked, I was asking various questions about the position. Received an email the next day to take the IQ/Reasoning test which was simple considering I took it 2 am in the morning and passed. In a few weeks another phone interview was setup and 14 out of the 15 minutes I was asked questions about how I would react to certain situations. Very simple and straight forward until 3 months went by and I did not hear about any updates. Then received a phone call and an offer in my email for a part-time position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at IBM (Hyderabad (India)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The written test was the worst. We had to start at 11am but it was started at 4 pm and there we people whose exam started at 7pm but before completion of all students results were announced. Next day in the interviews ibm document upload servers were intentionally blocked and students were rejected with the reason that their documents were not uploaded. An employee was smoking in the premises despite of saying him it was against rules of the college and another person from ibm was seen taking interviews with pan in his mouth some people suspect that they may been drunk but it was not spotted.
    They had a quarrel with the training officer and used some un parliamentary language.
    IBM was a very good company in my opinion but those idiots spoiled the reputation of the company with their stupid actions the drive was in GITAM university hyderabad campus on 14 15 and 16thseptember 2017
