    Entry Level Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at IBM (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Atrocious experience: they invited me for a followup interview in locations very far from me and at specific time of days, and made no effort to accommodate. In fact, they were highly unresponsive throughout the entire process, even when I voiced my concerns. Worst interviewing experience by far, stay away.
