    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.

    Easy Interview

Very caring and easy going but it was hard to get a proper project to enhance my experience. Very vague directions and no proper guidance/ data to work with.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Dell.

    Interview

    One round of technical interview and one HR interview and couple of salary related separate discussions. It took 4 weeks after technical interview to get offer letter. Salary discussed during the first discussion was pretty low than what I had expected. Hence there were couple of discussions to explain what I am expecting and why I am expecting.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Dell in March 2017.

    Interview

    I heard about the job through a current employee. Got contacted by recruiter mid April for a quick phone screen, mostly behavioral questions and what technical skills do I possess.
    I was then invited to complete an online assessment to gauge my technical skills. Most questions were regarding storage, databases, networks and network troubleshooting. Two weeks after completing the online assessment I was invited to a panel interview. I did the interview and got the job offer a couple days after, a good offer :D

    Overall the process was very enjoyable, believe me I have been interviewing for multiple companies for the past months. Everyone was super friendly and lay back and really want you to succeed.
