    Interview

    I applied online and got an email a month later requesting a phone interview. The interview had basic questions on java, sql, web development(javascript and css), and finally lots of questions regarding projects on the resume.
    I was informed a week later that I was selected and would soon be contacted by HR.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IBM (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through campus recruiting, they send me OA, which is a 3-hour long, video on, behavior and technical OA. Then they scheduled a video interview for me. They use HireView which is a company that provides video interview platform, but HireView is so hard to use. I can't pass the connection at my home, and campus wifi is still not good enough to have smooth connection. After the interview, they told me that I have positive feedbacks, but their recruiting cycle for this year has concluded............ Such a bad experience

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at IBM.

    Interview

    There was a brief over-the-phone interview (maybe 45 minutes) with general questions about previous work experience.

    We then scheduled an in-person interview which lasted a little over an hour. Here, they asked more technical java questions but none were very specific.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at IBM (Bengaluru (India)).

    Interview

    I was called for an interview for a specific project. HR did really good job at coordinating but the interviewer lacked basic manners. He was not ready to accept any answers other than what he expected.
    Firedrill started during interview and we were expected to vacate the building. I asked his number to come back after 30mins. After 30 mins, when I called back, he said he's still moving back to his place and asked to call after sometime (crowd had dispersed around 20 mins ago). When I called after 30 mins, he disconnected and I received call from HR telling I didn't perform well.
    I did or did not perform and that deserves a respectful rejection. People who work at such organizations at the senior post lack some basic manners and assume they own the company. Any sensible person would value others time.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at IBM (Markham, ON (Canada)) in January 2010.

    Interview

    The interviewer was basically interested in knowing if I worked on a large project before. I did, so he asked my contribution in it. How many lines of code, classes I wrote. Asked about a few terms and technologies. No logic or brain teaser question. Very straight forward interview!
