    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Dell (Irvine, CA).

    Interview

    Was contacted 3-4 weeks after speaking with Dell recruiters at career fair. Went through a phone interview (HR and behavioral, talk about resume) and then a technical onsite interview (talk about past projects, behavioral, and some technical questions). Overall a good experience! Recruiter and interviewers were very nice.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dell.

    Interview

    Worst experience and company ever!!! Very unstructured process and people were SO RUDE!
    I went to NSHMBA conference and got an invitation to a private networking session with Dell people. But that happened in the morning and I forgot the exact time towards the time I was about to leave the conference in the afternoon. So I went back to their booth and waited to ask this quick question. Then a recruiter asked me to wait in line, and I told her I just wanted to double check the time. She doubtfully looked at me and turned back to another guy, whom I believe was a hiring manager, asked if he knew the time. The guy gave me a up and down look and told the HR lady, IN FRONT OF MY FACE, that he did not know me, and that she needed to be more careful about the information, "some people may try to sneak in".

    I don't know what kind of company Dell is but this guy's behavior certainly reflects some facets about Dell's culture. They called me on the same night to schedule a interview on the next day. I declined because I had another interview around the same time. Now, I have removed Dell from my list because every time I thought about Dell, that guy's look, full with DISDAIN, always rise before me.

    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)
