    Interview

    The 30-minute interview through Webex. The woman was very nice and relaxed. In the beginning, it was very casual conversations. Then, she took about15 minutes to give more detail about the program and what you will do if selected. Basic behavioral questions and questions about your experience working in a team.

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at IBM (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Very bad experience from IBM, as I was interviewed then cleared all rounds, after 15 days received mail as we cannot consider your candidature for specified position. I don't know the reason why.

    If you don't have the requirements then don't take interviews and before scheduling interviews please check if candidature is matching your position or not.

    Application

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

    Interview

    3 Interviews which consisted of tests, zoom chats, and one over the phone after the initial screening. This was fun but did require some thinking; the aptitude test is very tough but also doable.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at IBM (New York, NY (US)) in March 2020.

    Interview

    During Covid pandemic lockdown HR assured that if selected onboarding will be virtually down. After 4 levels of screening even got confirmation of selection. The communication stated that approval is in process for offer letter. Suddenly after 2 months got communication that they cannot give offer letter.

    This company seems to be ridiculous and the Talent management team are just creating hype of the companies brand and taking advantage of the candidate.
    I would never recommend any of my friends to even lookout for such disgusting company.
    This is really pathetic and in against human resources.
