Client Support Specialist/Technician

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Dell.

Interview Details – After applying to Dell Federal Services online I received a phone call in about two weeks. This initial call's purpose was to set up a phone interview with a Talent Acquisition Specialist who calls you at the time of your choosing. The interview is fairly quick. They ask you to give them details of IT experience and also ask you to tell them a bit about Active Directory.
Shortly afterwards they talk about salary and compensation.

Campus Ambassador Interview

Campus Ambassador

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Dell in June 2014.

Interview Details – Mosaic reached out to me for this position because I had recently applied for a different position so they had my resume. Then I had one interview with the Mosaic recruiter, followed by an interview with my now-manager. I also had to use HireVue to answer questions online, which is really awkward because you just have to talk to your own face.

Interview Question – Very general questions - why do you want this job? What will you bring to this role? Etc.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university - interviewed at Dell in January 2010.

Interview Details – I applied through my University. The interview was pretty straight forward covering prior sales experience. They run through the basic interview questions, like what your strengths and weaknesses are. Also, they ask a good amount of technology related questions. You are interviewed by a panel of 2-3 people and are expected to go through a mock sales presentation.

Very Difficult Interview

Inside Sales Representative I Interview

Inside Sales Representative I
Round Rock, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Dell in June 2014.

Interview Details – The first half of the interview was amazing. Very easy, they got to know me as a person. The second half of the interview was not what I had expected. My recruiter told me to have an understanding of one of the products I would be generating leads for but when I got into the interview they wanted me to give a thorough explanation of all of the products, draw a diagram explaining their functions, then sell it to them. I don't see how that is possible if a person doesn't have the proper training.

Interaction and Visual Design Senior Engineer Interview

Interaction and Visual Design Senior Engineer
Round Rock, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 months - interviewed at Dell in May 2011.

Interview Details – The process was fairly straight forward. Getting started was the hard part. I met several team members at a conference and was recruited by them. However, the process slowed a snails pace. They were interested and so was I, but many emails went unanswered. Once the human relations coordinator was in place the process became very smooth.

I went through several layers of phone interviews including HR, hiring manager, director, and design peers. They then invited me to visit Round Rock, TX for an onsite all day interviews. The onsite interview day started with meeting the hiring manager face to face, who then passed me off through a series of manager, director and peer interviews. It made for a long and tiring day.

Interview Question – Why should we hire you?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – They were fairly set on their salary and bonus offering, it was a good solid offer so I accepted.
