Interview Question – give example how do you interact in a stressed situation (e.g: customer downtime) Answer Question
Negotiation Details – all terms are negotiable
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at EMC in November 2013.
Interview Details First round was just behavioral interview with a set of 5 to 6 questions. The interviewer was very conversational and they were basically looking for 'fit.' I have not received word on the 2nd round interview yet but will update when I can. I think it was beneficial for me to talk to others who had been in the program first. They provide good insight and can help you prepare for the interview as well as give you inside information that you can use to your advantage with your answers.
Interview Question – The most difficult question for me was the walk through of my resume because it was a lot of information that I wanted to give in a short period of time. I always have trouble being concise. Definitely have a good concise but powerful answer to this question. Also be prepared to share why technology is important to you or why you are passionate about the tech industry. Answer Question

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at EMC in November 2013.
Interview Details The interview questions were all "softcore" by most standards and only asked about my background, previous experience, etc. There were no unexpected questions, and they were all fairly easy and reasonable. The manager purposely tries to make you feel uncomfortable to try and catch you off guard. Don't let this get to you as the questions are not difficult.
