Interview Procss at IBM - NCR

Technical Interview

It may only happen on phone or in person within IBM premises and here are the few questions (specific to .NET):-

a) Tell something about .Net Framework. Concept and how it works.

b) What is assembly manifest?

c) ASP.NET Page Life Cycle ?

d) Error Handling?

e) How multiple inheritance is handled in .NET?

f) Explain generics with example.

g) What are C# Indexes?

h) Abstract classes and there purpose?

I) Modifiers?

J) WCF and difference with web service?

K) Data Grid questions related to Itemtemplate and rowtemplates.

PDM Round

If you manage to clear the technical round then its PDM round which is said to be most difficult to get the offer letter. The PDM round is usually

taken by a senior delivery manager and he can ask you some technical as well hr questions. Please pay extra attention while replying to the

questions because they try to confuse you a lot.Some questions are like :-

a) Why you are leaving your current job?

b) Why you left your previous jobs?

c) Who else in the family? If you belong to business family, do you have plan to join the business later?

d) What are your expectations ?If you say good work, please note you are most probably going to get hired on bench and manager taking the interview is

clueless about that. He might pretend that you will off course get the work of your choice but that totally your sheer luck.

e) Salary expectations? They generally offer a less hike but I have heard several stories like HR doesn't have proper communication of package offered by

manager in PDM round. HR will get back to you with offer letter solely on their discretion (if you clear) and there you can negotiate as well. Don't

emphasize much on package in PDM round because IBM Managers usually won't appreciate it because of policies and guidelines.


Once you accept the offer letter and join the IBM, they usually carry out the Induction program at Noida branch no matter what is your preferred location. If

you are moving from out of NCR they advice to take hotel or plan the stay. Induction is of about 5 days may not be continuous.

On Bench -Reporting Location

If you are on bench, you can go to any IBM office.

Regarding induction, it does not happen only in Noida, but also in other cities! Please get any such information cross checked before you speak about company related information in public.

Secondly, regarding the process like getting project or project allocation process - it is an internal process to IBM and I don't think you should mention the company's internal working/process.

It may be ok if you write an article about interview process like how many rounds and what to expect or your experience, but project allocation process is not to be discussed without consent in public sites.
