    Dell Computers Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I have wanted to work for Dell for a long time, so when I finally got a chance to interview I was most excited. However despite not getting an offer, I do not think that this is the type of place I would want to work anyway. Upon entering the room with the interviewer, I was simply asked in a rude tone "why would I hire you"

    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Dell in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through campus jobs portal and got called for an on-campus interview. Interview was pretty laid-back, mostly asked me my career prospects and how I liked my major. Nothing nerve wrecking. The interviewer was not looking for anything in specific skills-wise but mostly if your personality would fit the company and if you would be a proactive employee.

    Application Details

    interviewed at Dell in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    First round interviews was a panel of 3. Was not intense but validating whats on your resume and experience to do the job. My recommendation would be to be confident and don't lie on your resume because they will expose you. Be prepared for the panel type interview.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Dell in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Completed the Dell online employee form
    Contacted by Talent Acquisition team and reviewed resume; high level summary of role and I agreed it was a fit.
    Phone screened with 2 current Technical Account Managers. Asked technical questions regarding my experience with:
    - Storage - Isci and FC and the benefits of each
    - Server - Models I've worked with, current Dell servers or IBM/HP that I've wok
    - Networking knowledge - light stuff like ICMP, SNMP, IP
    - Presentation skills
    - Leadership roles
    - Sales ability

    Lasts about 30 minutes. Pass and you're recommended to TAM Manager interview.

    I was light in my presentation and went blank on server models I've worked with. Know the job description and apply your background to it and you should be fine.

    Interview Questions
    • Wasn't very difficult, I just drew a blank when they asked me about my past server experience. It's not a hands-on role so I was not prepared. I did not know the model of servers I worked with because there were so many and I didn't think it would matter. Also, my past experience had no public speaking involvement. I never presented to C levels, only other technical people.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Dell in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Manager are eager to hire, and always in a rush because the company is on a "on going job hiring freeze". Once HR release and allow job openings, these are only available for a week or less. Managers have very little time to interview and/or hire, and if that does not happened ASAP, manager just cant. Most of they will do competency questions and will as for your star examples, be prepare.

    Interview Questions
    • As they are all competency questions, they are all difficult and expected. just be prepare   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation phase was easy, I asked for double what I really wanted, and I got what I was looking after from the beginning. I was lucky. Not a norm.
