Junior Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at IBM in September 2012.

Interview

2 behavioral, 1 case interview; each lasting between 30-45 minutes. Behavioral interview is the standard fare for a entry-level position for a college hire; case interview was tricky because I didn't take enough time to think about the question, and instead dove right into the math/question portion.

Advice: breathe, and read/practice Case in Point

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at IBM (London, England (UK)) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Long waits between steps and little feedback. Face to face x 2, 2 telephone calls, 1 appraisal with group tasks and interviews from staff who clearly didn't want to do it and we're ill prepared. One guy didn't know what I did. Turns out he runs the whole thing and is the most clueless of them all.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at IBM.

    Interview

    Had an initial interview, it went well - very basic questions. Went back for second interview, a more in depth question bank was used. I had the feeling they had an referral from an internal candidate. Although they were nice, seemed to be a bit removed.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IBM (Warsaw (Poland)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process is quite difficult. 6 levels of recruitment process ( CV, HR meeting, Senior HR meeting, Project Manager, Assessment Centre, Manager) were tough but worth to pass. IBM is great company for IT/Business people who are able to link those two domains.

    I was contacted by phone, and after some questions I was invited to a 1:1 interview with a senior manager at Milan HQ. The interview flowed well and in an informal way.
