Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Dell (Boston, MA) in November 2017.

Interview

Applied through College. 30 minute brief interview. Questions based on resume. 2nd phone interview scheduled within 1 week. My signal was very poor and my phone went blank didnt work. They were super chill enough too reschedule. Technical questions based on technologies I had worked on and listed on resume. I really appreciate them rescheduling and frankly it doesn't matter what the outcome is.
