    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed 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.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed 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.
