    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at IBM.

    Interview

    Got asked some questions about my behavior things (what is one situation where someone made you upset and how did you handle it), then got told what the conditions were if they hired me (laptop, hours). Eventually I took an online number pattern test that was pretty tough but I never saw the results.

    Strangest screening I have had thus far. Recruiter asked me to call them (never had that experience before). Screening was less than 10 minutes as well. Still not sure if I will be involved in next steps.

    Interview

    applied online, and got an OA online interview which includes 3 coding questions and 5 video question. Coding are fairly simple and video needs you more time to prepare. Overall it is very simple and you can prepare it by staring looking at some basic behavior questions online
