    Sales Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Dell in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Dell.

    Interview Details

    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
    • Difficult to answer (as a principle, clichee): what do you do in five years time?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    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.
