    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at IDC (International Data Corporation) (Framingham, MA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Long. I met with about five different people. All ranging from supervisors to managers to HR personnel. Some were nice, others were extremely condescending. Not necessary in an interview. At the end of the interview I met with the HR employee again who told me I'd receive a call the following week letting me know if I received the job because one more candidate needed to interview.

    I did not hear anything so I emailed a second follow up. They let me know they were still interested in my candidacy. I never heard back.

    Field Interviewer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at IDC (International Data Corporation) (Saint Louis, MO) in November 2015.

    Interview

    phone interview where I was asked some pretty complex questions that made me have to think about my answers carefully before replying. It was very formal, not at all conversational. I had to repeat myself a lot as they would ask me the exact questions I felt I had just addressed. It was a woman interviewing me. She was very professional. I was nervous, but I feel it went fine. They don't give you any feedback on the phone as to how you are doing.
