    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Dell (New York, NY) in February 2009.

    Interview

    I was called out the blue.. apparently my resume on either Dice, Monster, or Carrerbuilder grabbed someone's eye. I met interview team of 2 at an off site location.. the W hotel near Union Square, NY. They were 2 junior employees on the Citigroup account who conducted a clumsy interview.. first asking my situation questions, then technical. When asked and pressed, I did not receive honest answers regarding company culture out of them, as they seemed to be regurgitating the company line.

    Negotiation

    Dell HR bait-and-switched my salary range... they low-balled me by about 30% from what they said I could make, but was forced to take the job due to lack of any other prospects at the time.
