I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dell (New Orleans, LA) in October 2016.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dell (Austin, TX) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Phone screened with the hiring manager after applying directly through their site. We talked generally about my background, and he explained who he was looking to hire. Contacted by a recruiter to give some in depth information about the role. She had her HR colleagues contact me to schedule a time to come on-site. I came in and met with 4 different people, including the hiring manager I had already spoken with. I sent in some materials for them to review the next day and heard back two days later.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Dell (New York, NY) in May 2014.

    Interview

    First round interviews was a panel of 3. Was not intense but validating whats on your resume and experience to do the job. My recommendation would be to be confident and don't lie on your resume because they will expose you. Be prepared for the panel type interview.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Dell (Austin, TX) in September 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process was quick and very professional. You will hear back pretty quickly after the panel interview regarding the offer. I advice you be very prepared for the interviews. They are in depth regarding your knowledge of product marketing, processes, cross functional teams, engineering (agile vs waterfall), and technologies. If you know your field and have the appropriate experience, you should be fine, but brush up on your product management/marketing training.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain a time when you were doing go to market planning and you had to quickly make a change. What did you do and what was the result?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Dell has an aggressive salary proposal out of the gate. I was honest about the current positions I was interviewing for and their salary range, which I believe helped me to receive the appropriate salary on the first offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Dell (Austin, TX) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Had a phone pre-screen with a very polished internal talent acquisition person, followed by a phone interview with the hiring manager (most notable question - "Why do you think you're suited for this position?") within the same week.

    Dell flew me out to Austin for interviews. I met with three in person and had phone interviews with an exec. director and another consultant over a period of 3 hrs.:

    - very technical, in-depth (protocol level) questions
    - product marketing techniques

    They were very professional, but in the end - there was a company-wide hiring freeze (for most positions).

    Interview Questions

    • (The position was for the group responsible for Dell's vStart CI stack). "Why do you want to hitch your success to the Converged Infrastructure strategy?"   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Dell (San Francisco, CA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    2 phone + 3 onsite interviews by VP, director, managers and senior engineers. Moderately challenging at the Director level. Be prepared to answer small brain teasers and typical industry questions and problem solving with case studies. It's very dependent on the interviewers' own background and the problems at hand they wanted you to help resolve. I would rate the difficulty 6 on a scale of 1-10. with 10 the toughest. Overall it's a pleasant experience.
