    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Dell (Plano, TX) in April 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process took a couple of months. The hiring process was actually fairly efficient, once I was in the system and being considered for the job. The hiring team was thorough, had its act together and was prepared to negotiate. It wasn't the hiring process that concerned me; it was what happened after. Once I was hired, the other HR people I dealt with were rude, unhelpful and behaved as if they were doing a huge favor by simply DOING THEIR JOBS. Worst new -hire orientation experience ever, by the way. Leader was not from the business. She was disinterested and looked at her phone while showing us boring videos. Didn't have new welcome gifts for everyone; only some people. Paperwork was out of date and confusing. WORST EVER.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate a $15K signing bonus and additional time off. Also a flexible work schedule (but lots of people at Dell have that)

    Technical Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Dell (Plano, TX) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Two phone calls with a Dell recruiter, and one in-person interview with the hiring manager and senior level associate. The recruiter described the position in great detail and even provided insight into current projects associated with the role. Unfortunately, what the recruiter related in terms of salary and job duties was not offered by the company or team itself. The role was drastically overstated, and what was agreed upon in terms of salary in the initial interviews between recruiter and hiring manager was not offered with no option of negotiation. Basically, the salary range initially offered was 10 to 15 percent higher than what was given. Leadership's explanation, talent is often acquired under market value during a strained economy. The is the company's mentality on the whole.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing. No unexpected or technical questions were asked. Questions mainly had to due with culture and seemed scripted. Where do you see yourself in five years?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was an offer letter, and the offer was not open to negotiation.
