    It appeared to be very easy. I met with 4 different people all with positive feedback. Then nothing. I logged into the site to see my status and found that I was no longer under consideration.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at IBM (Rochester, MN).

    Interview

    Two interviews a 30 minutes each. Very casual with the intent of vetting out your personality rather than putting you on the spot. People are the stereotypical Minnesota-nice. The facility looks amazing when you interview, however, do not expect that to stay true once you start working at IBM. They have a quick turnaround on the process and will let you know within a week if you will be given an offer or not. Beware that applying through the IBM website may take up to 6 months before it lands at the program director for the COE.

    • Behavioral questions such as 'Tell me about one time when you...'   Answer Question
