    One decent interview. Pretty painless. Asked the basic questions like an example of a time you were in a difficult situation what you did to get out of it or how you were a leader at some point. Then a month of training which was awesome because of my trainer.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Dell in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    It was a fast process but it was hard getting answers to questions regarding position. They are obviously hiring lots of people and don't have to the time to respond. Felt very much like just a cog in a very large wheel. Nice people though

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Dell in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    They will normally call you first after you apply online, then they will ask you to come in for an in person interview that consists of 2-3 people interviewing you. Then they will call you with a decision. This took about two months from initial phone interview to call in interview, then 1 month between the call in interview to when I actually got offered the job.

    Interview Questions
    • Being a call center, they make you simulate a call center call and pretend like they are the customer and you are the representative, This was the most difficult part.   View Answer
