Storage Engineer Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Dell.

Interview

Started out well. The recruiter contacted me and responded to my questions. I was set up for a tech interview. The tech interview was pleasant and I answered all of the questions. The next step was to be an onsite.

Two weeks passed and I sent an email to the recruiter for feedback. At this point she was no longer returning my calls which is rude but typical. A week passed and then she wrote me saying that the interview went well and the she would be letting me know what the next steps were to be. A day later I got a generated form letter saying that I was rejected. Needless to say the recruiter ignored my subsequent email asking for clarification.

While this sort of arrogance is common I think that Dell is hardly a major player in professional services and frankly, their hardware is flimsy. The buyer's market may allow for such shenanigans but the tide is turning and the demographics of the American workforce is shifting. Soon enough it will be a seller's market again and I for one will not forget how I was treated by potential employers.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dell (Austin, TX) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Went through a recruiter who scheduled the phone interview. It took approximately 30 minutes, with 3 engineers of the team on the call. The questions were mostly technical and not much else. It was difficult to understand some of the questions because the interviewer has an accent and the call quality was not great at the time.

      Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Offered a one level lower grade engineering position than current
    grade level at current employer; Dell is conservative on job
    designations or pay/benefits that comes with that designation.
    They offer very good salary initially but one gets stuck at this level
    for long; Overall Dell offer balances with current offer on long run.
