IBM Interview Experience - 05/04/2015 L J Group of Colleges, Ahmedabad
I am E&C branch (2013 batch) and I would to walk you through my experience of IBM off campus on 5th Apr.
The procedure started when my college asked for our Resume details and forwarded it to IBM.
IBM has this procedure of sending emails to eligible candidates with a Unique registration no to each candidate along with the date and venue of the off campus.
In our case it was, Matriculation > 70%, Intermediate (10+2) or Diploma > 70%, Graduation (BE/B.Tech) > 7 CPGA or equivalent percentage.
Depending on the no.of total requests received by IBM, they divide you in batches so that all candidates can managed well.
My reporting time was in evening 1:30 pm. A batch had already completed it first round by then who had a reporting time of 10:30 am, I think.
Guys this is not necessary but it would be good if you bring a printout of your confirmation mail, they don't mind if you have a soft copy.
Unique reg no is very important.
Overall procedure is divided into 3 rounds:
This is Aptitude and Logical series round.
They will give you a link (as far as I remember www.identifythebest.com, I don't remember complete link).
That's a product designed by IBM for itself and others.
U will get 18 questions from series completion with 5-6 no displayed and u have to match the option that ends the series (Piece of cake).
Each question is allotted time of 2 min 15 secs and believe me it goes away like Breeze.
My advice wld be don't look at timer instead focus on the question. It won't be much hard.
The next set of 18 questions won't come immediately so wait for a minute, Relax.. and get ready..!
The quants were a bit tricky same time pattern, but rigorous practice helps here a lot..!
For section 1 just refer all questions of IndiaBix and thats it.
Then we were accumulated in a hall, where they started announcing names of rejected candidates. I think ratio 50% of total candidates.
This round is dedicated to your command over English (especially Business emails and Letter writing, use of verbs pronouns prepositions etc)
This wholly depends on candidates level of understanding the basics of English. I don't think this section needs much prep.
They ask 22 ques in 20 mins.
Timer is not displayed. Use of Computer's watch is advised.
Here again ratio is 50% of total candidates who cleared round 1.
Out of total candidates I think 300-340 maybe. Around 65 got selected.
They ran out of time.
So the final round (HR+Tech) round wld be held at IBM Pune. They said it would be late after around 3-4 weeks. This is the thing I found a bit weird. But thats it.
All in the experience is good. Chances of getting selected after 2 rounds is around 75-80%.
Lets hope for best.
