    Sales Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at IBM (Durham, NC) in February 2016.

    Interview

    It started with a simple phone screening, run me through your resume etc... after that I had a 45 minute phone interview with a hiring manager. The interviewer was very engaging and kept the conversation going. Entirely behavioral questions, describe a situation you were a leader, worked in a team... things like that. My main problem was that I had a month between the phone screen and the first phone interview and they waited another month after that to tell me I wasn't moving on.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at IBM (Raleigh, NC) in February 2016.

    Interview

    One coding + video round followed by one video interview.

    Coding + Video round :
    1. I had to record my responses for 10 questions related to concepts in computer science :
    2. 3 coding challenges : 30 mins, 1 hour, 1 hour each with increasing difficulty. You can video record your logic for solving the question after the time is up. This helps even if your code doesn't compile, it helps to convey your thoughts across. (I could solve only one completely and the other halfway through)

    Video Interview :
    If you pass the coding challenge, you will be contacted for a video interview.
    1 hour interview. Initial 30 mins a chat on my resume and "how will you handle these scenarios in office"
    Next 30 mins - One coding round on an online text editor. The interviewer helps you along the way if you get stuck.

    Overall a positive experience!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at IBM (Research Triangle Park, NC) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Random questions about subjects that had nothing to do about the job opportunity were asked. Also I received an invite to the interview literally 2 hours before the interview. So, I went into interview feeling unprepared. I obviously didn't do well because of it.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at IBM (Raleigh, NC).

    Interview

    Had to come in for 3 interviews, spoke with 5 different supervisors. The questions was coming from everywhere. I remained calm and answered them correctly. When the first interview was done, I had no idea that I was going to get a call back for another interview. Non the less, when I showed up for the next one, it was with some team leads, that wanted to get a grasp on how they thought I would fit in on a team with them. Random questions, how well do you work with others, what would you do if you see a team member doing something different from you, things like that. Went well.
