    Reasons for Declining

    They didn't have any particular project they need people to work on... it almost sounded like they need someone to walk in and do something fantastic so that their group's average rating goes up. Not goal-oriented team.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at IBM (Essex Junction, VT) in January 2008.

    Interview

    Very relaxed environment. If they are paying your travel expenses for the interview, you have a very high percentage of being hired. The key is to pass all of the prescreening.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at IBM (Pune (India)) in March 2012.

    Interview

    My Interview with IBM India Pvt. Ltd. took place on 4th and 5th March 2012 in Pune (India).

    On first day, online aptitude test took place. It was really tough. Only 100 candidates out of 1000 cleared the first round, and were called on 5th March 2012 for next rounds. We have been told that the next very day would contain two interviews - one technical and one HR. But on 5th March 2012, both technical and HR rounds took place in same row. And, in the evening results were announced, and luckily my name was there in the list of 17 selected candidates.

    I would like to suggest that never loose your confidence. "Be confident and do hard work, and the world would be yours".
