Senior Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee in Herndon, VA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at IBM (Herndon, VA) in October 2014.

Interview

I spoke to graduate school classmate (former IBM GBS employee), applied online, heard back 1-2 months later, was flown to VA for an interview in early and mid-November, and I had an offer by early December. It was a simple process and interviews/ conversations with 3 VPS, 1 Managing Partner, and 1 Senior Manger quickly convinced me that IBM was a good fit.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IBM (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    1. Applied online

    3. Telephone interview with Manager
    4. Telephone interview with Peer Manager
    5. Video interview with another manager

    Total Time: 2 months

    Comments:
    These interviews were over a two month period and after each interview there was little feedback. Finally, after the last interview I had to check my status on the Career site to see the job was on "HOLD" and "Under Manager Review". IBMers on Quora said this meant I was still under consideration. A few weeks later with still no word from the recruiter, I checked again and found the "JOB WAS CANCELED".

    I had expected more from IBM after going through 4 interviews and I am not impressed and wary of ever applying for another position given their current recruiting processes as well as the company itself. IBM has strayed far from its well known status as being one of the best tech companies to work for.

The feedback from the interviews came within 5 days as they advised. The official offer letter did take a little extra time to receive, because of the internal approval process.
