Business Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee
Round Rock, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Dell in May 2010.

Interview Details – Easy communication. The conversations were casual but investigative. The experience here was not difficult. I met with 3 people in the process. Everyone had a new perspective on the role since it was a new position in a newly organized group.

Interview Question – The most difficult question I had was where i wanted to be in 2 years. At Dell, the mentality is after 18 months, you need to start looking within to grow your understanding of the company. I had not considered the position to have an expiration date and was looking for something with longevity.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I took the offer as is. It was a fair number and the flexibility of the role was a huge bonus.

Business Analyst
Round Rock, TX

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Dell in April 2010.

Interview Details – Pretty standard interview process. Started with a half hour phone screen, with the person that ultimately would be my manager. Then did a few back to back interviews in person. The first set were two folks that I would work directly with, the second set were both peers with the manager, and the final interview was a one on one with the director of the department. Within a day of the face to face, I received the email stating that an offer was forthcoming. I received the offer 5 days later.

Interview Question – Lots of behavioral type stuff, tell me about a difficult project, etc.   Answer Question
