    Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Dell in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The whole process takes an awful lot of time! 5 weeks and then a generic message saying it will take longer. Interview questions are easy. 2:1 for full time positions. There was a networking event the night before the interview was scheduled. Felt good to meet with the recruiters and talk to them about their experience working at Dell.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Dell.

    Interview Details

    Hired over the phone/Skype. I made it abundantly clear that I prefer the work of a business analyst over project management work. I then found myself doing nothing but project management work. PMs have a tendency to abandon projects and related groups are forced to assume this responsibility.

    Dell Computers Sales Interview

    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"

    Interview Details

    The onsite interview consisted of 4 (1 of them being with HR) 1:1 interviews, each interview being around 30 mins. each, and they covered both technical/problem-solving and behavioral questions. The sessions were pretty laid-back and informal and started off with some bit of chit-chatting followed by an understanding of what was expected from the role, what I had done previously of the same nature, etc.

    Interview Questions
    • The "Three Light Switches" riddle, which one can answer (and I could fortunately) on the spot one thinking through but it was a bit unexpected but a good way of testing problem solving in my opinion.   Answer Question
