Systems Administrator Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Dell in February 2009.
Interview Details – 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.
Interview Question – Describe a difficult situation you've had to work through? View Answer
Negotiation Details – 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.
Systems Administrative Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Dell in September 2009.
Interview Details – I was referred by a former employee at the place at which I use to work. I was interviewed first by phone and latter in person by three system admins and the head of the department. I had to take a drug test and go through a background check before I was hired. The back ground check included a check of my finances.
