    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at IBM (Houston, TX) in October 2013.

    Interview

    One phone interview, one onsite interview. Questions in the screen process is easy. They are more looking for candidates that are dedicated and show interests of working for them. I have to say the recruiting people are better at looking for the right candidate than I am at looking for the right position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IBM (Houston, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Quick to ask a ton of questions online with urgency in an email and no call back. i felt quite misled and manipulated by the process. IBM should not send emails that imply you are a final candidate in the entry process nor should they say they will call within the week and not call back. KEEP YOUR PROMISES!

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at IBM (Houston, TX) in July 2010.

    Interview

    My interview process began with telephone screening interviews, the first with an IBM recruiter; the second with a current consultant. Since I've been consulting for a while, the second call was casual and allowed me to ask most of my questions (not all - be thoughtful and professional). From there, I was invited to an interview day at one of several national locations. About 100 candidates were divided into groups of 6-7 and each group was presented a business case. As we worked on the case, interviewers walked around each table to observe how well we interacted, who took the lead, how we resolved issues/differences of opinion, etc. I can't remember now how much time we were allocated to prepare, but each group had to present their findings to a panel. The key throughout is to actively participate, be calm and confident, and think about what you need to say before you get in the room. Don't be shy during the presentation but don't act like Donald Trump either. I've prepped for case study interviews in the past and can say it helped since I don't have a business degree (although I am ABD on a Ph.D.). Now that I've been with IBM over a year, I will say it is extremely important to work as a team during the group presentation. While some candidates will naturally rise to lead the team, everyone has a contribution, and every consultant should strive to be their client's 'trusted advisor.' Good luck!

    Interview Questions

    • The business case posed the question of whether a company should expand into a new, potentially more lucrative area or remain on its current course.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Since my offer was at the higher end for a band 7, there wasn't much room for negotiation. Unfortunately, we all get the same number of vacation days so that wasn't negotiable either. While it's possible to negotiate to a higher band, it's easier at a lower band to get staffed.
