    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Dell in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    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

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Dell in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Dell.

    Interview Details

    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!
