I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Dell (Austin, TX).

My resume was referred by an employee within the company. I was contacted by the recruiter a week later, who scheduled an interview with three people on the team, including the hiring manager. All initial communications were made via e-mail.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Dell (Round Rock, TX) in February 2012.

    Interview

    A preliminary phone interview with Staff Management to review your qualifications, if you pass that, move to a phone interview with the Hiring Manager. Questions are direct but fair and you are giving opportunity to expound on your answers, minimal time to ask questions of your own. Very difficult to decipher the hiring process, but it is a coveted company to work for.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a difficult situation that occurred on your last job and how did you handle it.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Dell (Austin, TX) in July 2010.

    Interview

    Very organized and communicated with me well. They seem to have a need to make interviews 30 minutes each which I find strange but efficient. Not a problem for me but hard for the hiring managers.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Dell (Bangalore (India)).

    Interview

    The first round was a Telephonic round with Functional Manager in US which was more about past profile and what I would bring to table. It was then followed by an F2F with the Hiring Manager, which was more behavioural and expectations related. The final one was with HRG. It was a pleasant experience and quick!

    Negotiation

    No, It wasnt open for negotiation
