    Average Interview

    Interview

    The process went through the traditional data structures and algorithms for your typical software engineering interview. I would recommend practicing in one language specifically beforehand and understanding all of its benefits and limitations, and being able to analyze the time and space complexity of your code.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IBM.

    Interview

    (This was nearly a couple of years ago)

    In short, the I had a call with the recruiter, phone screen with manager, Webex panel with team/management. After the panel interview, I believe I heard back the same day (if not the next day) from the recruiter that they wanted to move forward with an offer. I received the offer less than 14 days after the phone screen with the manager.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at IBM in July 2020.

    Interview

    Got referred by an IBM employee. From the referral date, got a cognitive ability assessment and as I submitted it, got the coding challenge - Hackerrank. Try to get familiar with hackerrank as having the coding ability in a different platform is not quite helpful if you do not know how hackerrank works (with respecto data science challenges).

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Very long time to schedule phone interview and next steps. Repeatedly followed up but very hard to simply get feedback and updates. I was told the first interview went well and they wanted to schedule a second interview but weeks and weeks passed.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at IBM.

    Interview

    Easy non-technical questions. Manager just asked questions about my school projects and teamwork. Im pretty sure I got recomended by one of my professors and therefore I already had a good shot at the job when the interview started.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at IBM.

    Interview

    The hiring manager emailed me about setting up a video call interview. It was about 30 minutes long and he started by asking about what I like to do outside of school such as hobbies. He asked about community service and only asked one question pertaining to the internship itself. He did ask if I had any questions for him.

    4 rounds of both technical and behavioral questions. process took few weeks. Overall tough interviews. Technical interviews are related to analytics, the process, and scenario based questions. Behavioral are more likely typical general questions.

    Interview

    Was a pretty straight forward interview process. Focused on past sales results and achievements. Wanted to understand how I would handle certain situations at various clients. Emphasis on how I functioned in a team environment.
