IT Applications Management Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview


I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Dell (Austin, TX) in March 2007.


Initial communications were from Hiring Manager, via email, which resulted in a phone interview with said Manager. Was invited to Austin to sit for a series of 6 interviews - one with the manager, and one of his peers (Mgr Interviews), two individual interviews with my position's peers, and finally, two more 1:1 interviews with associates who were more senior on the team, but reported to the same manager. Interview questions consisted of Resume Reviews, standard new hire interview questions (Dell breaks the standard up into 6 parts and gives each interviewer a set of questions to ask), non-standard problem solving practices; some were generic - these are designed to test generally how you attack problems, and some were actual problems from the production environment that I was given details about and asked to describe how I would resolve it). In addition, I was asked to describe / draw on whiteboard previous system / software designs and walk an unitiated user through the business and technical objectives, and any challenges faced during launch.
