    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at IBM (Chennai (India)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It was good, hired for something and working for something, due to lack of projects. Now doing a different functional role and stuck in between. Wish they were more transparent while hiring. I have wasted my career joining IBM

    PL/SQL Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pune (India)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at IBM (Pune (India)) in April 2010.

    Interview

    I was invited by a staffing agency to attend the interview at 9 AM. Also the name of the contact person from IBM HR was given in the invitation mail. When I arrived at 8:45 AM, huge mass was already standing is queue. Upon querying some 2-3 persons, got to know everyone's interview was scheduled at 9 AM "sharp" ! ! ! Anyway after waiting nearly 2 hrs., I got chance to enter the building.
    2 important points here to note :

    1) You are not allowed to carry your backpack / even plastic bag inside IBM premises. Most ridiculous thing is that they don't even allow a place within the entire Panchshil Tech Park. You will be just shown roadside tea stalls opposite the park that was already ready with numbered coupons. Great tie up !!

    2) If you are an alert person and wearing helmet while riding 2wheelers, shamefully IBM don't appreciate that and your helmet will be treated as your backpack and NOT ALLOWED INSIDE !!!

    Hope no need to mention that your vehicle is also not allowed and has to be parked far if you want to avoid towing it away by Police. The entire stretch in front of park is "no parking zone".

    By the way, upon clearing the initial barriers, I got a chance finally to face the HR representative. I was asked to be present in different tower (building). Interview was running at snail speed. After waiting nearly 3 hours, at 2 PM, one lady from HR informed the cause of delay is due to only 2 people is present from panel. By that time, everyone is hungry and lost energy / interest to face the interview. I waited few more hours only to be said rudely by the lady HR - "if you wish you can stay or if you wish you can leave - I cannot say how soon the interview will be done". She closed the room door in front of me without bothering to answer my further questions. Finally at 5:30, I left the premises being exhausted without attending the interview.
