    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Dell (Seattle, WA) in February 2014.

    The interview was going pretty well. All the interviewers there were pretty nice. Although I didn't answer some of the questions, they still let me pass the interview. It was not very easy and not very hard. Be prepared for a lot of tech questions.

    Recruiter call then phone screen required coding over the phone plus on site. One interviewer didn't have the depth to understand a classic algorithm. often, they want you to find the answer they had in mind that is (they think) the one true smart solution.
