    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Dell.

    Interview

    The hiring is based solely on politics. In this position alone, four Dell employees applied, but no one had an interview. The position was given to someone who didn't earned the opportunity.

    Interview

    There will usually be 2 Sales Managers in the room with you conducting the interview. They will ask you basic questions and have you walk through your resume. Primarily, for sales, they will be seeking a personality and attitude match that will fit into the high-pace, highly competitive atmosphere. They may also try to dissuade you from the job to gauge your response and commitment to the opportunity.

    Security Analyst Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Dell (Round Rock, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I received an email from a recruiter asking me if I was still interested. She schedule for several interviews to take place on a Friday starting at 9:30am. I showed up at 8:30am and registered with the front desk attendant at 9:00am. Around 9:20, the replacement front desk attendant informed me that no interviews had been booked for me. I decided to reach out to call the recruiter from my cell phone (since Dell does not provide you with contact information for people you are about to meet with) and, after a while, the hiring manager showed up (instead of the first person I was supposed to interview with). The interview went quickly by (30 minutes per interview except for the hiring manager with whom I unfortunately spent less time). The Dell employee interviewers working in security were interesting as they all have diversified background (finance, legal, aeronautical engineering, etc.). All confirmed that I would be a great addition to the team. I completed another interview over the phone late at night and spent a lot more time with that Dell employee from India. He confirmed that he would recommend my employment. I followed-up with the recruiter but did not hear back until 2 weeks later that they had decided to hire someone internally.
