    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at IBM.

    Interview

    Its a step by step process. First of all there will be an aptitude test that would cover your general IQ and a technical skill test. Based on performance in the two test the candidates are shortlisted for the next round. The next round would be a group interview wherein the candidates are divided into multiple groups and are asked to come up with a conclusion. Finally there would be a face to face interview. One would involve technical and the other would be HR based. For lateral hires there would be a face to face interview wherein their experiences become the basis of the interviews.

    Negotiation

    I did not have a chance to negotiate since I was recruited from college and they said the salaries scales are fixed and not negotiable

    The interview was very enjoyable, conversation-like. My interviewer mainly asked questions about experiences on my resume, coursework, & career goals, nothing unexpected. Followed up with a few personality & IQ tests online.

    Interview

    We were acquired. There was no interview process. For internal transfers it is all based on your certifications and on knowing the right person at the right time. Should you ever be hired by IBM, make sure you know as many people as possible and that they know who you are.
