I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Dell in August 2008.
Interview Details – Multiple interviews with Sales Manager, SE Manager, SE and Inside Sales Manager. Process was lengthy but once the hiring manager made a decision, the response from the recruiter with an offer letter was very quick, less than three weeks overall. The interview from the Inside Sales manager was very canned - "Tell me about a time when....". The hiring manager was very dynamic; very intelligent and quick individual.
Negotiation Details – There was no room for negotiation.
I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Dell in April 2010.
Interview Details – Contacted an ex co-worker when I was looking for a position in hi tech sales. She put me into the middle of an ongoing search directly with the hiring manager. We had a phone interview and a review of my resume. My resume was submitted officially to HR and I met with the hiring manager face to face for an hour long sitdown. He then asked me to meet two of his more senior AEs over lunch. We discussed our experiences and backgrounds. I sat down once more with the hiring manager and was offered the position.
Interview Question – There was a surprisingly large amount of dialog around selling into the data center and a bit more technical jargon than I had expected. My background was a perfect fit though based on Dell's strategy for selling to the enterprise. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I negotiated an extra week of vacation (3), some RSU options
I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Dell in November 2012.
Interview Details – The first round was wasy and the HR made me feel comfortable but then in the second round with a manager,I was literally into tears. He was rude to me adnd don't know for what reason.As soon as he told me that he cannot continue this interview any further,I took a deep breath and said to myself THANK GOD and left. I think he din't like the idea that I was pursuing MBA at that time. I could see the change in his expression when I told him this. Worst experience ever! :(

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Dell in March 2008.
Interview Details – Complete disconnect between the Dell recruiter and the hiring manager. Hiring manager had not read my resume in advance and also thought I was interviewing for a position different from the one I was contacted for. Hiring manager was completely unprepared. Series of interviews by those on the team. Seemed to be a very inwardly-focused group. Crummy corporate hell offices in Round Rock.
In retrospect, I felt that Dell was simply filling an interviewing quota. Candidates invest a lot in interviewing -take a day off work, a night in a hotel in my case, and not least -the preparation and expectations. I always value the experience of interviewing, but this was a waste. I would not have taken a job if offered. Maybe things have changed?
