    Interview

    It was decent just a quick little interview. Then boom "I'll call you within a few days". Never reached out. Overall I don't think they were interested in me anyway

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at IBM (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process took place online. Felt like making a Youtube interview, and IBM recommends that you dress up the same way you would during an actual interview. The first few questions consisted of a basic introduction such has who are you, where did you attend school and why, when did you solve a problem, etc. The next section is a 30 minute coding session for a single question. You can't pause.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IBM (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I received an email stating that they'd like me to complete a proficiency exam (the iPAT Test). It had to be done within a certain amount of time and took over an hour to complete. While I'm very confident with my work, I never receive results and only found out that I was no longer considered for the job position by checking my application status online. Super disappointing.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IBM (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I have a strong feeling that the recruiter I interacted with is not professional. I applied online and heard from the recruiter 2 days later asking for phone interview. The format of email I received about phone interview is very casual. There was no salutation, no recipient's name, no signature of sender. If is was not sender's email address (with @us.ibm.com), I hardly believed it was from a real IBM recruiter. At the phone interview date, I received the phone call on time, but it ringed only two times and was ended before I could answer it, so I was waiting for a long time and ended up calling back. The recruiter explained : he was thinking he dialed the wrong number so he hung it up. Excuse me? Why you didn't call again if you thought the first one was incorrect. Anyway, the first impression was not that good. In our conservation, he didn't seem to have a structural way of asking questions. In stead of focusing on the role or company as a normal 'phone screening', he asked me about random things like the city where I studied for master program, my impression about my university, and etc. I am saying those questions are bad, I just feel it is neither relevant nor important to the job application. In the call, he asked me to write up a summary of my current job/project/skills and email to him after we finished the call, which I did, but I think that information should be gathered by recruiter via phone interview. I am willing to provide any supplemental docs (like transcript, sample work, reference, etc.) but what he asked is totally out of the scope. Three weeks after the initial phone interview, I finally heard from the recruiter by email (again, very casual format even without mentioning my name) saying that he wanted me to narrow down applications (because I applied multiple openings). During those three weeks, I haven't get any word from him, meanwhile, I have already moved forward in rounds of interviews with other companies and was given a pretty good offer.
