Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at IBM (State College, PA) in February 2017.

The overall interview process was not too challenging. The interviewers were laid back and made you feel relaxed when asking you the questions/scenarios. It was a one day, 3 interview experience.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at IBM in October 2017.

    Interview

    I had three interviews- two behavioral and one case. Interviewed on campus with two alums and another CBD-er. All seemed very nice... Recruiter said we would hear back in a few weeks (not necessarily the case)... Never heard back from them. Even emailed the recruiter and she never responded. Applied to two other jobs and I was rejected

    Interview

    One super day on campus - 3 back to back behavioral interview. I heard back a month and a half later which was annoying and it took even longer to get my actual documented offer instead of just a verbal one on the phone. But in the end, they gave me a higher salary than the verbal offer so I was okay with it haha.

    First interview was telephonic, more technical around 30 min. After that 1-1 discussion at IBM premises with HR. Released the offer letter.
    It was great experience.
    Most of the the technical questions were around how to configure a particular scenario.

    Interview Questions

    • Walk me through your resume. Why IBM? Why consulting? Tell me a time when you worked on a team.
      For the case, our client is launching a new IT project, we can do option A or B. Option A is cheaper but takes longer (with more details), and option B is more expensive but we can get it done faster. Which Option would you choose? How would you go about implementing this new technology so that people adapt with the change?   Answer Question
