    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Dell.

    Interview

    I was asked the normal interview questions. It was nothing hard about it. The interviewer asked the questions, and I answered them.I guess I could have expounded more. I happened to be in the middle of something during the interview.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Dell.

    Interview

    Applied for the job on Dell's website and received a phone call later that morning from the hiring manager. He asked if I could come in that afternoon for an informal interview to tour Dell and to see the day to day workings of the position. After the tour a formal interview was scheduled for the following day. Overall a great experience and very polite and professional group of people.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Dell.

    Interview

    First round interview through campus recruiting, great experience. Very mellow, first round is with a professional recruiter then later rounds would be with other employees. Overall, I felt like it was not very difficult but was only a 1st round and a super friendly person. Know your resume, do some research about the company and you should be fine! I think fit is key, try to be friendly.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Dell in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview itself was a very straight forward with nothing too difficult. It was a phone interview about a week after I had first interacted with the recruiter. I didn't get any behavioral questions and it was a very easy going conversation. The questions referred specifically to IT methodologies and cycles. My interview lasted about 30 minutes. The reason I gave it a negative overall experience is because it took too long to hear back from Dell; which if you're interviewing with other companies can make it difficult to pick the right company. Other candidates that interviewed the same time as me never heard back either. The recruiter would did not respond to any emails after the interviews. When they did finally email me back about getting rejected the recruiter referred to me by the wrong name. If they hypothetically had extended and offer to me it would have been too late for me to accept anyways.

They explained me initially about whats the current technology in dell and then started with asking me about my previous job experience. Then they started with projets I had done and skill sets mentioned.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Dell.

    Interview

    Applied through career fair and got the interview immediately after talking with the recruiter. The interview is held next day in a hotel and I went there to talk with just the same recruiter on career fair. Even though he has already known almost everything on the resume, he went on asking deeper. I didn't do well on one of them, I think it might be the reason why I didn't get the offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Dell (Nashville, TN) in February 2015.

    Interview

    After application on Dell Job board was excited that after Morgan Stanley this was supposed my second big Break Through. Recruiter Contacted me and scheduled a time for telephonic talk. After she was satisfied She setup an interview with onsite Lead Analyst. He was really good and experienced he asked me each and every details and i answered it at a point he was 99% satisfied.

    Then he asked me about what i want and why Dell ? and i answered.

    Then i was told that i will give my feedback to my manager and may be he or some one else from my team will take your interview if they are further interested.

    My interview was on Friday and Monday was president day so i mailed her Tuesday ...asking if she have feedback for me ? Didn't received her response on 3rd day too. I guess she was not provided feedback from Nashville. I called off all other interviews with a hope of getting this job where i can do something.

    All i want is they be clear . If YES then say yes if NO then say no and if she didn't got feedback then at least say that. As a professional I have also taken interview and sometimes i also waited for week and after taking interview i give feedback selecting the best person. Its totally fine and acceptable but Giving NO RESPONSE makes a negative thought of loosing hope of getting that Job.

    Plus i never blame any company employees as they take interview they are doing their job and duty. If they rejects me then also i will accept it as my fault or somewhere i might be lacking . I will groom my self with required technical skills , Improve my self and then will appear for interview for some other company.
