    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.

    Solutions Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Dell (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    Interviews here are long and brutal. Expect 4-6 hours to see everyone. You spend 45 minutes with each team member--including peers and managers from the target team and adjacent ones. The questions weren't particularly hard or overly technical (aside from a few to confirm the resume was correct), most were to establish job culture compatibility.

    Interview Questions

    • You are given a task to perform and a date to complete it by. You find you can easily complete this task much earlier than the deadline, but you have other tasks on your workload as well. What do you do?   1 Answer

    Interview

    The interview consisted of video interviews via their online platform with 5 members on the team each with 30 min. Technical questions were asked from each of the interview which ranged from software design, architecture to coding practices, high level concepts, databases, multithreading topics and more.

    The process was smooth and we had some interesting discussions. There were a few unexpected questions but besides that everything else was fair game.
