    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.

    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.
