    Technical Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Dell.

    Interview Details

    I found out about this position through a posting online and was particularly interested in it because it was based in France. The online application was slightly confusing and ended up submitting my application before I actually finished. I tried to reach out to the Montpellier office (which was where I applied) but it was almost invisible. What's worse is that they when I looked up the same position in the USA, the responsibilities were more technical and refined vs the france one which seemed like any jane doe with some computer skills could do.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Dell in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was a day of interview with multiple 45 minute sessions. Interview went very well and both parties appeared very interested. Looks like they ran into some hiring freeze issue later on and hence asked me to wait some more time. In the mean while I found some other opportunity.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    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.

    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"
