    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IBM.

    Interview

    Initial application accepted, invited for analytic testing. Passed analytic testing, invited for Excel and Word testing. Passed Excel and Word tested, invited for in person panel interview with three people with similar job titles in surrounding cities and the HR manager.

    Well, the interview lasted about 10 minutes because half the questions they asked pertained to my experience working on things that WERE NOT mentioned in the job description. The job description made not mention about experience with budget preparation, budget management, or budget analysis, yet 4 of the 9 questions from the panel asked about my knowledge and experience with various aspects of budgets.
    How about making the questions in the interview relevant to the skills and duties mentioned in the job description?
    Also, after making it to the final 7 people out of at least 100, would have been nice to get a courtesy email letting me know I didn't make it.
    What a joke.

    Interview

    Applied online, 2-3 months later got an email back asking to take an assessment. After completing that, had one phone interview. Tough interview, seemed like they were expecting me to be an expert on SAP even though it was marked as an entry level position.

    Standard interview practice, first is automated, second is with a developer, and third was a behavioral. They flew out candidates to a 2 day finish line event and made offers to 95% of the candidates. For those who didn't get offers, wasted two days listening to company baptizing.
