    Senior PMM Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Dell (San Francisco, CA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    It was okay - process was driven by contractors who dont' seem vested in the process The process was also rather long with too many days of waiting in bewteen. Finally, the issue for the end results was that i eventually had to meet more people when I came on board. I wished that the business would have a dedicated Dell hiring team to make sure that thepeople selling Dell are actually excited about working for Dell

    Product Marketing Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    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.

    Account Executiv E Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dell (San Francisco, CA) in September 2009.

    Interview

    I applied for the position online and was contacted by a recruiter who was very professional. We talked for about 20 minutes providing her with details of my background. A couple of days later she called me and scheduled a 30 minute phone interview with the hiring manager. He asked about my background and what I knew about the company products and focus. The recruiter then set up another phone interview with the Regional Director which went extremely well. Two days later, the recruiter called me again and I was offered the position. I was an exception more than likely in this case as I now know that each manager has their own process. Many will have you talk with peers, various managers and support resources and will base their decision upon feedback from each. The onboarding is not the best and it takes a fair amount of time to work your way through the who is who and where to get answers but all internal personnel are very willing to assist. Good group of people who work very hard.

    Negotiation

    The sales positions variable pay structure is based upon level of rep. I don't believe that there is any negotiations relative to pay structure with the exception of negotiating a higher level sales position. I II III or IV.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dell (San Francisco, CA) in March 2009.

    What negotiating? Many companies are now "low balling" on offers, and this offer surpassed my expectations.
