    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate at all.. which is a big mistake because I ended up accepting 1 level below my grade... never do that.. because Dell looks for external hires so they can bring them in at a lower grade

    Application Details

    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.

    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.
