Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at IBM in February 2015.

Interview

I interviewed over the phone. There were two interviewers, usually from the division you'll be placed in once hired. Both interviewers were very friendly and weren't trying to make the interview difficult. They wanted to have a conversation and find out what kind of person you're like and how well you know the content. Overall they ask a lot of the usual interview questions, ranging from personality to technical aptitude.

    Typical interview process. Received a call a few days after submitting my application. Scheduled a phone interview which consisted of two separate 30 minute interviews. Questions were all standard (why IBM, what do we do, what does IBM stand for, what excel skills do you have etc).

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at IBM (Rochester, MN) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Incredibly easy and simple, but I applied through university which probably made it easier. This particular location only required a phone interview. Bureaucratic process, but easy nonetheless. Put me in contact with multiple people, and some were completely unaware. You might have to wait for emails or phone calls that don't come until you remind them.

    Interview Questions

    • Very general behavioral questions. Maybe a bit more thorough than other places, but nothing too technical. No case questions. Very easy.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Interview process is very laid back, there arent a lot of technical questions. IBM people are generally nice. I feel like this is the environment i would work for. However the office is very old. All ibm office are very hidden.
