    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.

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Dell in May 2017.

    Interview

    First was a 30 min phone interview with the recruiter. She asked a few behavioral questions and talked to me about the position. Afterwards I was scheduled for another phone interview with a hiring manager. This interview was a lot more complicated- really focused on conflict and what you learned. I heard back a day later and flew up to MA for an onsite interview. There was an icebreaker, roleplaying activity with a manager and a tour of the facility.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dell.

    Interview

    Very easy and relaxed. Just had a chat about the role and what I like and what I want to do. Spoke about my past experience and my current status. Sweet manager. 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.

    Strategic Sourcing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Dell (Austin, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    A recruiter (through a colleague) located me via LinkedIn and set up a phone interview with the hiring manager. Had an excellent discussion of over an hour about the role, my experience and strategy. Was then brought into the Global HQ for an interview with several stakeholders and peers.

    It was a far different experience on site. I was supposed to meet with several people, and had prepared for such. However, half the interview list was replaced with others with no notice, some of which seemed perturbed and inconvenienced that they had to talk to me. The hour long time slot with the hiring manager was less than five minutes, and I got the feeling that someone else was already selected for the role. I left the campus rather bewildered and felt like I wasted two days (one to travel and the other to interview).

    After three months of ghosting, a contact let me know that someone had started a few days after I was on site. Apparently, I was booked on a non-refundable flight, and this was a way of justifying the expense.

    Had 2 rounds of technical interviews (over phone). 1 st round - Data structures and 2 nd round is on Java basics. Questions are mostly like Cracking the Coding interview ones. Not too difficult. But never know why they reject even though you answer well.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Dell in April 2017.

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out to me for an interesting role with Boomi. We set a time and they never called. Set a new time and they never called and then no longer replied to email. The lack of professionalism gives me pause on the whole organization as a customer or employee.
