Financial Analyst Interview

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

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

Interview

Applied through my university. Interviewers were very personable and easy to talk to. Relaxed, conversation with no real script. I was asked to explain myself, why IBM, and further elaborate things on my resume. No technical testing, and no "what would you do..." behavioral questions.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IBM in September 2017.

    Interview

    Very informal more of a conversation than an interview, they just talked a lot about the company rather than my experience. They spoke a lot about what IBM had to offer and the training aspects of the company. Somewhat hard to relate back they just did not seem interested in my experience.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at IBM in March 2017.

    Interview

    At the interview stage I had to answer questions from three different employees over the phone. The questions were mostly based off me giving examples of how I'd solve, or had solved problems. The process was more laid back than I had expected, and felt more like a conversation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at IBM (Dallas, TX) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Very competitive internal job search. Due to the number of employees impacted by rounds of resource actions it was too competitive. Not a lot of jobs available so low odds of success.

    Interviewed with two different people. They asked a lot of pretty easy questions that weren't very hard to answer, just your standard questions. They really like enthusiasm and you will to want to work for the company.

    Interview

    First, they gave you a introduction speech about the company. Then they sent you in a big room where interviewer sit. you talked one after one, there was three rounds. you talked with different people. the interview lasted from morning to afternoon. You will have lunch with the interviewers , the employees and other interviewees. That was also a chance to show your personality.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at IBM (Rochester, MN).

    Interview

    Two interviews a 30 minutes each. Very casual with the intent of vetting out your personality rather than putting you on the spot. People are the stereotypical Minnesota-nice. The facility looks amazing when you interview, however, do not expect that to stay true once you start working at IBM. They have a quick turnaround on the process and will let you know within a week if you will be given an offer or not. Beware that applying through the IBM website may take up to 6 months before it lands at the program director for the COE.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at IBM (Williamsburg, VA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Very Brief. Two on-campus interviewers. Behavioral questions. Simple and easy. A lot of fellow 'co-ops' (6 month interns) didn't go to very well-known/reputable schools, which was surprising. Any relevant finance or accounting experience should get you in.
