    Interview

    extremely ableist process. Not sure why they needed multiple online assessments before even contacting you. overall, felt very detached so I guess that shows what kind of tech company they really are

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at IBM.

    Interview

    Pymetrics was awful because I didn't even get feedback on how I did which was unfortunate and a waste of my time. I wish I did not apply to be honest. I never even heard back from them.

    Interview

    One of the coding assessment seemed out of the left field. Wasn't passing runtime unless you used some advance algorithm . I correctly answered the question but had some invisible test cases that I just could not pass.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Durham, NC (US)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IBM (Durham, NC (US)).

    Interview

    I got my first interview after one month of applying (did coding assessment in between).

    I had three interviews in total.

    The first round was one hour long with two of my managers. They didn't specifically ask me about coding questions but they asked me about my resume and some of the projects I did. They also asked me about behavioral/survey type questions.

    I got the second round after 9 days, it was also one hour long with six people. Again, they asked about my resume and the projects I did, and some survey type questions.

    The third was one day after the second and it was 20 minutes with another manager. This was a more relaxed interview and we talked about some of the work the team is doing. He also asked me about survey/leadership type questions. Then he told me I got the offer.

    The offer letter came after 8 days of the last interview.

    Overall, they were very friendly. Just research about the company and their tech stack (especially things that are specific to the position), and be very comfortable to talk about your resume.

    Hirevue interview with 3 different questions, the first being pretty easy and the difficulty ramping up as you go. The hardest question was probably the equivalent to a leetcode medium.

    There were many steps to the interview process and it was long and drawn out. Overall not a bad experience but does take time. Not the worst interview process compared to similar companies and similar positions. I’m just trying to get access to Glassdoor Glassdoor Glassdoor

    UX Designer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IBM in October 2020.

    Interview

    Terrible interview process. I applied to a UX designer position, a recruiter named Deja reached out to schedule a phone call. This phone call only lasted maybe 10 min when we scheduled 30 min. Asked me general questions and didn't seem interested in my background at all. Next, I received an email from her saying the team wanted to also consider me for another position. A design researcher position. I went ahead and interviewed for the researcher position first with someone who was NOT going to be on my team and had no knowledge of the position itself. Very unorganized. I received a rejection from the Design researcher position and was told that the position I INITIALLY applied for and DIDNT have the opportunity to interview for, was filled (chosen internally).

    Interview

    Very great process, 2 virtual interviews. They were very conversational and willing to answer questions about the role. My recruiter was super helpful along the way. The questions were mainly behavioral, some hypothetical about marketing.

    Interview

    First I took an assessment which included a game like quiz then a coding test. For the coding test the first question had you use sql and the second allowed for you to use any coding language of your choice. Then I had 3 45 min to a hour webex interviews and a case study.
