Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Dell.

Interview

For an engineer support role you would think it would be done by someone with some background on the tech your applying for. a good number of people are only interviewed by a manager with no work in the field your applying for.

    Interview

    Referred by a job hunt. First interview by hiring manager through the phone, question focused on previous cases and customer handle skills etc. Second interview by the director through the phone too, not too much question. The whole process lasted about 2 month, finally got the job.

    Referred by a friend, got an initial request for phone screen the same day I filled out the app. Had two phone screens, an in person interview with peers, then a follow-up call with manager. Got the offer a day or two later and didn't actually meet my manager until the week before I started.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Dell (Chicago, IL) in May 2010.

    Interview

    A former coworker had recommended this opportunity to me, and based on his enthusiasm for Dell, I opted to pursue it. After submitting my resume, the hiring manager contacted me by phone and we subsequently also had a face-to-face interview. With the mutual interest that meeting resulted in, I proceeded to then meet with several other peers, managers and HR representatives to this role (approx 6 total). I learned later that there had been 30+ applicants, and that I was one of three selected for this 2nd round of interviews. After the offer had been made and accepted, there was an additional process of background check and drug test as part of the hiring process.

    (Translated from English)

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Dell (Amsterdam (Netherlands)).

    Interview

    Hele proces duurde 3 weken. Had 3 interviews: inhuurmanager, manager van inhuurmanager en manager van andere businessafdeling. Werknemer werkte heel snel: na laatste interview kreeg ik aanbod. Salarisonderhandelingen gingen soepel en 3 weken later had ik een nieuwe baan.

    the whole process took 3 weeks. Had 3 interviews: hiring manager, manager-of-hiring-manager and other business unit manager. Employer moved very fast: after last inteview I received an offer. Salary negotiations went smoothly and 3 weeks later I had a new job.

    Interview Questions

    • Moeilijk om te beantwoorden (als een principe, cliché): wat doe je binnen vijf jaar tijd?   Difficult to answer (as a principle, clichee): what do you do in five years time?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Ik kon onderhandelen. Het was het waard om te onderhandelen: Dell is een verkooporganisatie, ook voor zijn nieuwe aanwinsten(!) Hou in je gedachten dat tijdens een later stadium van je carriere het moeilijk is een hoger salaris te krijgen.

    I was able to negitiate. It is worth the effort of negotiating: Dell is a sales organization, also to its new hires(!). Also keep in mind that at a later stage during your career it is difficult to get a raise.
