    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.

    Interview

    It was an hour and 15 mins interview, they started with questions about myself and behavioral questions, and then proceeded to ask quite technical questions. I think the technical questions very tough for an internship position but perhaps it was because it's IBM!

      How do you handle team conflicts?

    The IBM Application process included sending my application, followed by a coding exam and cognitive assessment. Afterwards, interview rounds took place and then an offer is given. The interview rounds are split into two parts, the team interview and the senior management interview. One is to test your fit for the team, and the other for your overall fit with the company.

    Received an OA, a little hard, containing leetcode hard question. Done in several days ago but no response so far. Looks like if you apply, you will get an OA no matter they are satisfied with your resume or not.

    Coding Challenge with a python and SQL question on HackerRank followed by three Cognitive Assessments, each of which were minigames testing a quantitative ability. Coding Challenge question seemed more algorithms based then general data science programming questions.

    Interview

    Pretty Standard. Although I had a weak data science background (only Bootcamp) they followed through based on my STEM major BS degree. Failed at the Interview Coding challenge though. The question asked itself was new to me, but is a known question. The hard part was having to only use the python library provided by the Hackerrank, which made it difficult/impossible to solve in time.
