I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at IBM in December 2012.
Interview Details Initial communication consisted of a call to the number listed on the submitted resume in which an online test was set up consisting of logic and arithmetic questions. I was then contacted again and we organised a time to do a 35-45 minute phone interview.
The phone interview, a screening call, consisted of behavioral based questions such as "What would you do if there was a problem in your team and how would you solve it?" The questions all related to team work or individual questions and I didn't get asked any technical questions which I was expecting.
Next was a phone call from the local IBM manager (the above call took place with someone from the national centre) who asked me similar questions but in a much less formal manner. I think this call was basically a get to know me call.
Interview Question – None really but it is expected that with all behavioral questions that you are able to present a real life example where possible. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – It was an internship type role so I didn't bother with negotiating a salary.
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at IBM.
Interview Details Was quite simple for me in that I was a contractor on a small team of contractors. Which is a good way for both potential employee to learn about IBM and also for IBM to learn about you, sort of a test drive. Key things are about execution, being thorough and thinking both big and long-term.
Interview Question – Was some time ago and really didn't do much of an interview, more of a trial. Most difficult thing was learning and programming on OS/2. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Pretty quick and simple, I had another offer at the same time. I came back with a few things I would like better, which they adjusted the salary but didn't change the vacation time.
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at IBM in November 2012.
Interview Details My interview was 1:1 for the first round and a panel for the second. The interview was pretty straightforward. We went through my resume and she asked about projects that I did for school. The panel interview was one of the technical guys asking about 3 tech questions.
