    Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tempe, AZ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IBM (Tempe, AZ) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for the position online. I was notified about a time sensitive online coding challenge two weeks later. The link to the challenge didn't arrive until the day before it was due. After the coding challenge, I was told I they would get back to me within a week. I didn't hear back from them for a month, which then I received contradictory messages congratulating me on making it to the final rounds of interview and informing me I had not been given an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at IBM in May 2017.

    Interview

    Did several phone interviews and went into a panel interview. All is good with verbal assurance of offer as well as written assurance on LinkedIn and email. Offer never came. Interview process was nearly 3 months. Unreliable Recruiting poc and no communication from hiring manager. Really frustrated at the whole process. If you choose not to hire let me know instead of dragging the process over several months. I have asked repeatedly whether the offer is based on contract award. Was initially told it wasn't. But now no response. So I have basically given up.

    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

    Test Management Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    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!
