    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Dell (Limerick, Limerick (Ireland)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    3 interviews 1. Technical phone call. No problems, good casual conversation with the interviewer. 2. Panel interview. Challenging interview, but seemed interesting. Tough but fair questions. 3. Technical phone call with the head office. The interviewer was a half hour late and asked me frankly irritating and contradictory questions such as defining that I wouldn't be working with databases in this position, but then following that by a question about database joins.
