    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Dell (Round Rock, TX) in July 2011.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty casual, they seemed to be just as happy to be there as I was. It seemed like a very mutual arrangement. We discussed what the job was like and what my role in the company would be like. If you're a Longhorn Dell employees have something they can bond with your instantly about.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Dell (Austin, TX) in January 2009.

    Interview

    After completing my assignment with the staffing agency I was offered a permanent position. In my opinion this is a great way to get in the door. It affords you the opportunity to see if it is a job you are going to be happy with and if you are compatible with the culture of the company. After three months of temp. work i was very familiar with the management team and their expectations and they with me and my ability and work ethic. When it cam time to the Interview the process was really just a formality as again there was familiarity between myself and management so all went really quick and painless.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Dell (Austin, TX) in April 2008.

    Interview

    It was pretty simple. There was only one on-campus interview, in which the interviewers seemed to want to get a feel for my personality and didn't ask much about coursework. They also did some sales exercises, like they had me pretend that I was selling water and they wanted to buy water, and we did a role-playing thing. Then there was a skills test on the computer in a central facility. You listen to fake in-bound sales calls and punch in your answers. If you pass, then they make you an offer and you go for a Day at Dell thing.

    Interview Questions

    • The simulated sales exercise was weird, it put you on the spot.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I got accepted to grad school so I went there instead. The impression I got was that sales at Dell gives a lot of opportunity to move up fairly quickly and the whole process is very structured. If you do well, you move up. If you're not doing well, they said that sales probably isn't right for you and you should consider a career change. Overall, it seemed very fair and a good place to start in sales if that's what you're interested in.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Dell.

    Interview

    It was a longer process. I was brought in with a class of about 12, and since their classes are every other month, I had to wait from the time of applying and the time of start.

    Negotiation

    Pretty straight forward. No negotiations possible on salary.
