    Average 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.

    BDR Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dell in March 2017.

    Interview

    multiple rounds over phone, each increasing in difficulty as higher ranked indviduals were brought in. While informative the answer that they were looking for was generally unclear. This was made worse by the lack of co-ordination and long wait times between calls. If you interview with this company make sure you already have supporters on the inside to keep you updated and the interviewers on task

    Very rigorous process. Multiple steps including remote interviews. They are focused on candidates and their experience, knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors, as these will better reveal which candidates are most likely to be successful in the position. The interviewers were very knowledgeable and asked pertinent questions. The whole process lasted no more than 3 weeks. I had 3 interviews and a final one with the country lead. The TA department was very helpful at times.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dell (Boston, MA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Initial HR contact/interview. Group manager phone interview. Then there was the team member phone interview. He didn't tell me who he was I had to ask him who he was. I was emailed questions to answer. Apparently I answered them incorrectly. I had a a very difficult time understanding him since he had a very strong accent. It didn't help that I was on speaker and constantly asking him to repeat himself. At times I just answered "Yes" not really knowing what I was answering to and then realized it wasn't a yes or no question.....but felt uncomfortable asking him to repeat himself for the 3rd or 4th time. I talked about 1 previous project and wanted to discuss another and he didn't want me to continue. I wasn't asked questions about what I had previously worked on. I did contact the HR recruiter to get feedback and to let him know that there were some communication issues but never got a response.
