Senior Business Analyst Interview

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Dell.

Interview Details – Resume referred by a friend who works at Dell. Initial interview with hiring manager and mostly talked about his expectation and how I meet or will do to meet the expectation. 2nd round is with his manager on the phone. Communications were good and efficient. Two interviews were done in one week and received HR offer the next week.

Interview Question – The job that was being discussed is for a new area where not many people on the market would have experience with, so hiring manager was not expecting interviewee be able to answer technical questions yet.   Answer Question

Boston, MA

The process took 2 days - interviewed at Dell in November 2011.

Interview Details – Initial phone interview was to establish working knowledge in the industry for this position. Without working knowledge it would be easy to determine that the person was embelishing their resume/past work. The panel was interesting, there 4 people they all asked questions regarding my experience but also participated in what I would call a group meeting. Probably to determine if I could fit into their culture without ruffling feathers of others. The other folks within the group where strong personalities, there was one person virtually attending the interview. Heavy on skill/knowledge recongnition.

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate to a higher pay grade because my knowledge and experience but also my work ethic are difficult to come by. I counter offered, but also had another offer on the table that I was leaning towards.
