    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at IBM (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Very comfortable. It was a conversation. She asked me questions, listened and added her thoughts to what I was saying, making it feel very relaxed and easy. The questions were mainly about previous experience and things like that.
    When I had a second set of interviews when trying to go from intern to full time it was similar. Two interviews over two hours. First was behavioral, about what you've done, second was situational, about what you would do in a hypothetical.

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral: Tell me about a time when you needed to take lots of data and turn it into something that told a story or gave simple information out of it.   Answer Question
    • Situational: Imagine you have found a new (tech) solution from a 3rd party company that you want to implement immediately within your own business unit, how would you proceed?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at IBM (New York, NY) in August 2016.

    Interview

    It was a lengthy interview process, needs a good amount of practice to crack it. I was asked a lot to explain about my projects and my experience. I was able to answer most of them correctly. It's kind of tough one, not that easy to crack.

    Workday Business Consultant - HCM, East Region Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at IBM (New York, NY) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I did not have an average interview process, and I have never felt more discriminated against. The Recruiting Partner for Workday refused to schedule my interviews, for the second interview I had to send 17 emails in order to get him to schedule anything. He kept telling me someone would contact me "today" to schedule something but no one ever did. In the meantime, I had two friends (not minorities) who had applied after I did, and were able to get through the process smoothly. I wish IBM would look into this, there is no reason why different races are having such drastically different interview experiences. What's even more frustrating is that I applied through an employee referral, and I had several friends who worked in the Workday practice, who checked on my interviews, each interviewer stated they would have hired me. Basically, I know it was the recruiting partner who was blocking me from employment.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult questions. They just want you to walk them through your work experience. Besides for the recruiting partner, the interviewers themselves were friendly.   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at IBM (Poughkeepsie, NY).

    Interview

    I did not directly apply for the position, but was contacted by a manager (apparently he reached out to HR for some applicants and I was one of the selected resumes) via email asking for a phone interview. After speaking with him, he offered me an on-site interview. It was an all day interview (9AM to 3PM), and I met with 4 engineers, the manager, and their director. Interview was pretty relaxed and focused on soft skills, with little to no technical questions being asked. About a month later I was offered a position.

    Interview Questions

    • Most were soft skill questions, and some background information on my resume.
      Nothing really caught me off guard or was particularly memorable.
