    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dell Technologies (Austin, TX) in November 2017.

    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

    - A single technical phone screen with a hiring manager after speaking to the recruiter during a recruiting event. Both were pleasant and informal. Seemed like they weren't very stressed about the technicals very .much, though.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Dell Technologies (Hopkinton, MA) in May 2018.

    Interview

    I got a mail from the recruiter more than 30 days later to setup a phone call with a Director.
    The director then called me 10 minutes late, and while talking, he was quite unclear for which he said he is in the car, driving, which is why. On reaching his destination, he decided to finish the call.

    As a company with such a high reputation, I thought they had a decent hiring process, where the hiring manager focuses on the person and not the road.

    I was quite disappointed. Also the director sounded least interested.

    Working for such a firm is a big NO!!

    The process was pretty standard as in - the first phone screen was regarding my technical background and my experience with their required technology. After the first phone screen, I got called for an on-site interview quite immediately. The on-site interview was as thorough screening session by 5 team members and I got asked questions based on my resume.
