    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Dell.

    Interview Details

    They interviewed a fairly large amount of people for a "sales class" and settled on about 8. The interview was performed by 2 men, in a small room with no desk or table. It felt quite oppressive, but the interviewers were good-natured. They seemed to go down a list of the basic questions you would expect for a sales type job, asking about experience, and they had me do a "role playing" session wherein I was to sell them a product. Overall the interview was swift and brutal if you aren't already a salesperson, otherwise it wasn't too bad.

    Interview Questions
    • Was asked to sell them an electronic device about which I had almost no knowledge. I felt very stupid trying to sell this person a device with no idea of its features, why someone would want it, or any technical information   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Dell in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interviews with Dell are often based on a format of finding out how you handle situations in the work place. I was asked to address a situation, what was the task taken to deal with that situation, what was the action taken and what was the ultimate result of the action taken. Be prepared to address how you have dealt with situations relevant to the job you are applying for and what you did to create the desired result.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time when you had to grow acquisition business. What methods did you use to grow that business?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I negotiated very close to the salary I wanted. I would advise to find out what the position you are considering pays in the job market you are considering. You will likely be offered slightly less than what the market is averaging for the position, but it is negotiable.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Dell.

    Interview Details

    I applied via company website and did not receive a response for several weeks. I then applied via an online job board and received a phone call within 3 hours. First step was a brief phone interview that lasted perhaps 10 minutes, second step was an on site interview a week later. I was from out of town and they arranged a hotel for me, a flight was optional but not necessary. Onsite interview lasted most of the day and there were perhaps 30 people interviewing that day. First was a presentation to the group then we were taken to a room to take a computerized skills test. After this we shadowed employees for a couple hours. during this time we were taken away individually twice for interviews with sales managers. after all were completed we were escorted from the building and told to expect to hear something within a week. This was on a Friday and I received an offer the following Monday.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Dell.

    Interview Details

    I received a interview with Dell through an application on my college career website. It seemed to have gone okay, they are looking for someone to make about 100+ calls a day and it did not feel like a good fit. After the interview, I sent a thank you email. Have not heard back from the company at all. No reply to email either.
