    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Dell (Round Rock, TX) in February 2012.

    Interview

    A preliminary phone interview with Staff Management to review your qualifications, if you pass that, move to a phone interview with the Hiring Manager. Questions are direct but fair and you are giving opportunity to expound on your answers, minimal time to ask questions of your own. Very difficult to decipher the hiring process, but it is a coveted company to work for.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a difficult situation that occurred on your last job and how did you handle it.   Answer Question
