Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at IBM in March 2017.

Interview

Applied online and was told that I passed the first screening weeks later. Got an email saying that I was to take an online test within the next 5 business days that I would be receiving "soon". 5 days later, I have to yet to receive said link and had no contact info for the recruiter from the first email that they sent me, so I attempted to email through IBM's general support site and was greeted with either an automated response or a response from someone who did not even attempt to read my email and responded based on the subject field. I then managed to find only the recruiter's name who sent me the email, on the application site of all places (but there was no email or any other contact info). I looked up the recruiter's name in the company directory and emailed them and not surprisingly got no response whatsoever. The company has forgotten to send me the test and all my efforts to contact them have been useless. Horrible experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at IBM (London, England (UK)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Basic undergrad level computer science. Data structures and Algorithm. There were subject specific questions. I applied for formal verification domain. So, there were questions on model checking. The interviewers were friendly. They give you a broad picture of what to expect during the interview process. The hiring manager called me and he also asked questions on various topics. The overall internship was organised very well. The total duration of my stay was 4 months. I strongly recommend to apply to IBM Research lab. We filed a patent and submitted a research paper out of the internship work.

    Interview

    Behavioural, really straightforward and pretty easy questions, chilled atmosphere. Wouldn't get too stressed for it. The test before the interview was really challenging though. The algebra was fine albeit you don't have much time so you have to rush. The pattern part was really difficult though.
