    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at IBM (Austin, TX) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Several conversations to pre-screen -- one was UK contact, one was email rapport and one was the a recruiter from San Diego. Then an hour-long interview with a senior manager about the role/roles, the part of the company and some of the exciting new directions and strategy. Then a technical interview by phone with a future colleague.

    Interview Questions

    • Technical: Topics on machine learning I have done in the past such as why I used a Monte Carlo to help with stress testing an algorithm for FDA approval or what programming language I used for creating an ensemble algorithm. The interviewer was a future colleague and extremely sharp.
      Managerial: mainly my listening and asking questions only to understand better.

After that I got an offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at IBM (Austin, TX) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through a campus recruiting system, a few months later I got an email from the recruiter about setting up an interview and doing an assessment. I went in for the interview and met with two representatives from the marketing department. They were both awesome! It felt like they were trying to get to know me, not grilling me about my bulleted points on my resume.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at IBM (Austin, TX) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The process was very quick and relatively painless. From the initial application to the hiring was approximately 2 weeks. First, there was a one hour phone screen with a senior staff member. During this interview, they asked me to talk about my work. Within a day or two, I was called for an on-site interview. The on-site was around half a day and was one-on-one interviews with potential colleagues and managers. People asked various questions about past work and workplace experiences

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at IBM (Austin, TX) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The process was a joke, it took about 4 months for everything to happen. After clearing the onsite interview, was put on hold for a long period. The recruiter kept dodging all the mails and finally after 2 months came back saying that the requirements changed and they are not hiring for the position.
