    Solutions Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dell (Dallas, TX) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Mostly phone calls with peers and manager - all very professional. To be clear, this was an internal reference where most of the people on the team already knew or worked with me in other Dell deals. While it is a new hire situation, in many respects it felt more like an internal transfer (going from EMC to Dell)

    Digital Business Services - Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Dell (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    The recruiting manager made me wait for 30 minutes before deciding to show up. When he calls me, he did not have the courtesy to apologize. Instead of apologizing, he asks me if I got the message from security that he would be 30 minutes late!

    The "Digital Business Services" organization is being staffed by "fresh off the boat" senior management from Wipro with little or no direct US work experience. This layer of management is bringing bad habits and attitudes reflective of the body shopping culture prevalent in most Indian IT shops (Wipro in this case). This does not bode well for Dell in the long run. Stay away!!

    Interview

    It take 4 weeks:--I apply the job from their web site.
    1. After 1 week, First phone interview about an hour, the questions including brain teaser, basic technical skills, how to test a "random generator tool", some C/C++" coding question as single linked list sorting, reversed printing. and some questions like why do you want to leave the current company, why do you think you qualified this job. --It's not hard on phone interview.

    2. After 1 week, I got a on site interview with 4 people one by one, totally close to 4 hours, include 1 manager and 1 director. All of them ask me the question as "why do you want to leave the current company" :). I said I want to work on the cutting edge technology and get a better pay. The questions also include the basic concepts and simple coding in C/C++ & Python, the projects what I did before. They told me what were they doing now and gave ma a scenario, let me figure out how to test it. --- It's also not hard.

    3. After 1 week, I got a last phone interview with their executive director, most of the question a popular behavior ones, he especially let me introduce the project what I did with Python at few years ago.---that's also easily

    4. After 1 week, I got a reject letter because I am lack of Python experiences. --- I understand that they want a guy who has experience on the tool and language what they are using right now, and can work on their project immediately. But sometimes it's hard to find this kind of the right guy, and if there is the guy, but he also need to learn the new system and environment, that's need training and studying.
