Interview

Received offer from the team I interviewed with, but it took five months to get to this point. Over a month for HR to reach out, and originally was suppose to meet with 3 people, ended up meeting with 9 in total. Getting moved on from round to round was very quick, but they just kept adding more people to the interview list which was super annoying and made it feel very disconnected.

It seems as I got closer to the offer more steps just kept getting added in, meeting with the team I wasn't super impressed but I did like the role which is why I stuck it out. The recruiter wasn't great at communicating and I often had to follow-up to get movement which wasn't pleasant. Probably one of the worst experiences I have had when it comes to interviewing

    There were two face to face interviews one with the hiring manager and one a week later with the hiring manager's manager. Overall the process took about four weeks. I did get calls between submission of my CV and each interview so I knew where I was in the overall process

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at IBM (London, England (UK)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    The interview was conduced utterly unprofessionally, really digging into my past and asking unsuitable and unprofessional questions in my opinion and making sly comments. I felt discriminated against and I feel disappointed that these are unfortunately key decision makers that behave like this in this day and age especially in that function it was most unsuitable. Good luck to them.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    They did a super-quick pre-screen to ask about my current employment, legal status, and willingness to relocate. When I gave what I assumed where the correct answers, they told me to send them a detailed description of my current salary + benefits. Um, after 10 minutes of conversation? Seems pretty premature, buddy.
