    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Dell.

    Interview

    The interview process was the same as many others. The first screening was with the hiring manager, two team leads, a client representative and the account executive. Once I passed the screening, a face to face interview took place within a week or so. With a week thereafter, my hiring was conditionally approved. The position needed to be restructured to allow me to join the organization. This process took another two (2) months. Once I signed the offer letter, it was another month before I was on-boarded.

    Separate interviews with multiple different people, all were 1-1 and there were no panels. Phone interviews at first then progressed to on site.

    Interview

    Phone interview with two sales managers. General questions, but grilled you on some topics. I was rushed in the process, but I think they were trying to make a decision quickly. Overall, not a bad interview.

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a weekinterviewed at Dell (Austin, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    when you first pull up to the area it is a little overwhelming. It's a fortress lol no really. Took me about twenty minutes to find the right building. Once I got to the building I went into the visitor entrance. The lady up front was friendly. Gave me a visitor badge and asked me to take a seat. After ten minutes I was greeted by a staff member kindly asking me to come to the back. Once we walked a good distance we made it to the room. It was another gentleman in the room that was also doing the interview. The sales manager) and there were two gentlemen on the phone who were decision makers. They all fired away questions typical interview questions, and allowed me to ask at the end. All in all it was nerve wrecking at first because that's the first time in a while I had to interview and with that many people, but they were nice even though I could have been better.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Dell in April 2015.

    Interview

    Pretty straight forward... I submitted my resume on a referral and was contacted 2 days later for an onsite interview. I went in for my first interview which was great. Both managers were very involved and took the time to get to know me. I was then called back for a second interview. I unfortunately had the opposite experience during the second interview. The managers clearly didn't along with each other and were not on the same page during the interview. I knew leaving that interview I would not be offered a position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8+ monthsinterviewed at Dell (Round Rock, TX).

    Interview

    Several separate interviews, in person. All in one day, first with the potential boss' boss, then with the boss, then with a future co-worker about my specific knowledge of the work I'd be doing. A little overwhelming to do it all at once, one after the other, but also nice to get them out of the way.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly it was character and experience questions. How I'd fit it, and what I had done in the past.   1 Answer
