Technical Support Engineer I Interview

Anonymous Employee
Bangalore

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at EMC in June 2013.

Interview Details I had 7 rounds to clear Communication,analytic, 2 technical, Managerial, Senior managerial, HR and Director round.
The toughest part is with the managers.. Most questions are based on your resumes. The more skills on technical language you put, the more questions are expected[ex. my resume had C, C++, Java, Unix etc]
Make sure you know the basics on what you have updated.
Communication and confidence will be your plus point.
Talk only upto the point and know much on the networking part.
EMC is one of the best place to work at.

Interview Question – Most difficult, when you are not able to connect to a server what would you check first?
what is DNS and how does it work?
Few questions on C++, JAVA were also there like what are class, call by value and call by reference example.
Top down approach, bottom up approach. How does the operating system works?

IT Project Manager Interview

IT Project Manager
Bangalore

I applied in-person and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at EMC in April 2013.

Interview Details Very easy interview. You need not to know anything of project management. It's a dubious company to work with if you want to get into project management.

Note: They do not have much projects, they have 40% project management strength sitting idle and without work. Also, you'll fine freshers or people with less than 1 year exp doing the same job of 8 years exp person.
