    Senior Practice Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at EMC in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was torturous. As well as the immediate manager you have to meet with the business unit leadership PLUS any other business unit heads that you may have to connect with. For me this meant NINE meetings - which I have never experienced before even for more senior roles.

    Interview Questions
    • There weren't any. Most of the meetings were "box-ticking" exercises. One guy even did his email while we chatted (said he was taking notes).   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They were pretty good - they accept that they need to offer as much as they can when you join as they have no idea when you might get a substantial increase.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at EMC in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    Was referred by an existing employee I met at a conference.

    Steps:

    - Phone
    - One-on-one with the hiring manager
    - Technical/Strategy with the team-lead
    - Personality with executive 1/2
    - Personality with executive 2/2

    Overall, of any interview I've ever been involved with, this the most in-depth from a background perspective.

    My online activity for blogging, twitter and various commenting on sites was brought up. Something as recent as I posted on a site the night before, was a discussion point in the interview the following morning. I was extremely impressed with their HR.

    Interview Questions
    • What do you think of product X for market Y. Can it be improved? Would you scrap it? Would you merge it with another?, if so - which?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I was very happy with the offer, negotiation wasn't necessary - as they simply doubled my previous salary.

    Associate Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at EMC.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by EMC couple of months after leaving my cv on LinkedIn. I applied and had a phone/video interview that took about 1,5 hour. Lots of to expect questions where I was asked to give examples of how I dealt with those situations. After doing a couple of interviews you know what to expect so my advice would be to begin with companies and positions you find the less attractive. This way you can prepare for the one's you really like.
    With these things I always find it hard to know if you're on the right track and doing well... but apparently I did great cause they called me back to get references with is the last step of the recruitment process Part of the interview was a role play doing an sales call.

    Interview Details

    There were two different interviews with the second round being speed-dating style on site, and the first being a 1:1 interview on campus. Mainly just behavioral questions and questions on resume. Nothing too tricky. The interviews were very conversational and not as structured as usual, which was a breath of fresh air.
