    I agreed to a phone screen. When it came to my scheduled time, I got no call. Even after emailing both the interviewer and the recruiter, I got no response for several days...complete waste of time.

    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.

    Interview

    Brief. Literally sat us down and proceeded to explain the requirements of the job. Didn't ask any questions and was completely non-technical. Can't consider it an interview really... more of a discussion

    Interview

    Pretty standard interview, interview on my college campus. 30 minutes that combined both technical and behavioral questions. 2 people for just me, the questions got more and more detailed as time went on. Know your projects that are on your resume! They asked really detailed questions about an app i created.
