    I got the interview through my Universities Job board. I submitted my resume and had an on campus interview. I was interviewed by two people and was asked basic behavioral questions. About a week later I was informed I had made the cut for the 2nd and final interview. For the second interview they invited all the candidates to the dell campus where we learned more about dell and the campus. At the end of the day I had two interviews 15min interviews back to back.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Dell.

    Interview Details

    For an engineer support role you would think it would be done by someone with some background on the tech your applying for. a good number of people are only interviewed by a manager with no work in the field your applying for.

    Interview Details

    Many of these positions are through contractors, so you have an informal interview with the contractor first to see if they think you are a good fit. The good thing is they give a quick run down of the people you will be interviewing with so it's not a total surprise.

    Interview Questions
    • I was able to answer all of the questions without difficulty   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation since it was through a contractor - which can make it difficult when wanting an increase.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Dell in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Campus interview, applied through university career center.
    The interviewer was kind and patient. We talked about my past projects and he also asked some design pattern question. I think I did a good job but no response after the interview even though I emailed the recruiter twice. After 2 months, I received a short email saying they would not move forward my candidacy.
