    Applications Management Analyst L2 Support Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Nashville, TN
    Anonymous Employee in Nashville, TN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Dell in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    After application on Dell Job board was excited that after Morgan Stanley this was supposed my second big Break Through. Recruiter Contacted me and scheduled a time for telephonic talk. After she was satisfied She setup an interview with onsite Lead Analyst. He was really good and experienced he asked me each and every details and i answered it at a point he was 99% satisfied.

    Then he asked me about what i want and why Dell ? and i answered.

    Then i was told that i will give my feedback to my manager and may be he or some one else from my team will take your interview if they are further interested.

    My interview was on Friday and Monday was president day so i mailed her Tuesday ...asking if she have feedback for me ? Didn't received her response on 3rd day too. I guess she was not provided feedback from Nashville. I called off all other interviews with a hope of getting this job where i can do something.

    All i want is they be clear . If YES then say yes if NO then say no and if she didn't got feedback then at least say that. As a professional I have also taken interview and sometimes i also waited for week and after taking interview i give feedback selecting the best person. Its totally fine and acceptable but Giving NO RESPONSE makes a negative thought of loosing hope of getting that Job.

    Plus i never blame any company employees as they take interview they are doing their job and duty. If they rejects me then also i will accept it as my fault or somewhere i might be lacking . I will groom my self with required technical skills , Improve my self and then will appear for interview for some other company.

After that, I had to do some online training and fill out a personality test. Then do a drug test. Finally, I was given an offer.

    Sales Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Nashville, TN
    Anonymous Employee in Nashville, TN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Dell in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    A lot of people said they had to go through a series of courses/interviews. I only had one interview and this included strengths and weaknesses. The HR people are nice but just coming out of college, I was a little nervous about the job so I am unsure on whether I get it. However, people say if you make the interview, then you are in good shape. We will see about this. I didn't negotiate or anything because I have not received information on the job. It is nice that they call you and tell you whether or not you received the job because I do not like waiting for ever for an answer.
