    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IBM in June 2018.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the hiring manager directly. It started with a phone call with the team, I had a great discussion with them. I was then moved to the next round which was another phone call with the Designer Manager which went pretty well and it was an offer.
    But the problem started later when the HR contacted me to ask about my Immigration status. I explained to her that I have an approved I-140 and my current h1b is expiring in couple of months have passed 6 year on it.
    And IBM has this meaningless policy where they require the candidate to have a minimum 24 months left on their H1b. With this I was rejected from taking up the offer.
