Very Difficult Interview
Inside Sales Representative I Interview (Positive Experience; Very Difficult Interview)
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 (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
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.
Product Marketing Consultant Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)

I learned more about the position and its responsibilities. The second interview, the woman was rude and in a hurry, she didn't ask too many questions and left half the conversation.
