    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at IBM.

    Interview

    Straight forward. Applied through my school, on campus interview. Found out 1 week later. The interviewers were very nice. You should be prepared to ask them a lot of questions or you will sit there in awkward silence. Case interview was a profit/loss case

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IBM.

    Interview

    a. Recruiter contacted several times to schedule an interview and then just few minutes before the interview send email saying we found better candidate. I don't find it professional.
    b. Don't expect recruiter to email you after an interview (if you are not selected) . they even don't bother to response to your email. Sooooo unprofessional!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at IBM (New York, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Asked technical questions, but no coding. Group interview. 5 other people interviewed me. What is agile development? Have you used testing in your programs? Do you know what a framework is? Why do you want to work for IBM? I did not know answers to about 50% of questions. I also am taking a summer class, so this may have been the reason why I did not get the position.
