EMC Interview Process


I applied at EMC for the post at Associate Software Engineer through my university. I was then interviewed at EMC and the process took just one day. The hiring process had three rounds - Written Test, Face to Face Interview and HR Interview.

Round 1 - Written Test
The written test was the usual one. There were a number of technical questions that needed to be solved within the given time frame. The questions were based on the basic knowledge of various things. To crack this round, you just need to be brief about the concepts and basic knowledge of everything. If you have studies well, you can easily clear this round.

Round 2 - Face to Face Interview (Technical Interview)
The best thing about this technical interview round was that it lasted just about twenty five minutes and thus you don't have any pressure while in the interview. Most of the questions were based on C++ and Java. There was one unexpected question asked in the interview:
Q1. Tell me the three most critical test that you would perform on a mobile phone before buying it.
Overall, the questions were easy and again, if you have studied optimally in your college, you can clear it easily.

Round 3 - HR Interview
The HR Interview started with the basic questions:
Q1. Tell me about yourself?
Q2. Why have you chosen to work in our company?
Q3. What are your future plans?
Q4. What if you get into a dispute with your manager?
But here is the catch. As the questions progressed, more cross questions were asked. So whatever you answer, be ready to answer in details as the cross questions hit you. Then there were questions inquiring about my strengths and weaknesses. Many questions were asked in this round before the offer was made.
Since it was a campus placement, no room for negotiation is there. They have a fixed structure and you can just accept or reject it as per your desire. I accepted the offer.


How to crack ( get into) EMC Interview


The interview process at EMC was pretty comfortable and short. You will be out with or without an offer letter before you know it.

The written test tests your basic knowledge which is not at all difficult if you are serious for a career in the domain. You should literally know all those things. The time frame was not too much or too little. It was just appropriate.

The technical interview was the shortest I have ever attended. Prepare for Java and C++ related questions and just be thorough with the basic knowledge of all other concepts. The interviewer will be nice and thus you won't feel any pressure. It is not difficult to crack this technical round as the questions were not difficult.

In HR Interview, all you need is that confidence level. If you are confident, you will definitely impress the HR. Be prepared for the cross questions. Thus, answer only what you genuinely feel and don't juxtapose too much. A calm mind with a bit of confidence and you are done.

No negotiation for campus placement. I don't know about others.
