    Technical Analysis Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Memphis, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Dell (Memphis, TN).

    Interview

    1. Phone interview
    2. Panel interview (more of a get to know you style, which is by far the best ever,than the traditional tech questions interview, we're you really know no more than you did about the person when they entered the room. Hence, using the get to know you style is the way they can see the personalities mesh with potential colleagues.)
    Cons: No room to negotiate your salary, and Dell doesn't recognize Certifications, as they're way to keep you under paid.

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Nashville, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Dell (Nashville, TN).

    Interview

    I received a reference email from Dell through a close friend working in a similar role at the company (honestly, it's the single best way to get in and interview, IMO).

    Upon applying, I was contacted within a day or two by a recruiter who scheduled an interview. Three days later, I met in person with two coaches/managers in a panel-type setting (me on one side of the table, the interviewers on the other). It wasn't as intimidating as it sounds.

    There really weren't any questions asked to try and trip me up and challenge me, mainly just about previous work and school experiences, "Why Dell?" those types of things. More than anything, really, it's an opportunity for them to let you know what the job requires and to see if your traits are compatible.

    The entire interview lasted roughly 30 minutes, and the last 10-15 minutes consisted of questions I asked during the open portion. I highly recommend having a few questions ready for when they ask for them. If you're not sure, ask about opportunities, nature of the job and the environment, about their personal experience at Dell, etc.

    I wasn't immediately offered a position following my interview because they had a few more applicants after me.

    I was offered the position three business days later via phone by the original job recruiter who scheduled my interview and the position began two-three weeks later.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Dell (Nashville, TN) in April 2016.

    Interview

    They were very straight to the point and very understanding of not knowing many technological sales terms. I kind of jumbled some answers so I was very surprised to get the offer. That made me think of whether the turnover rate was high for entry level positions. I love Nashville and really would have liked to take the position but the pay would not have been enough to live of off.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dell (Nashville, TN) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The process was through an on campus recruiter. The interview took an hour and was basic questions to see if you fit for the job. They give you information about the position and expect you to ask questions about it. However, they first ask you questions about resume and past experiences. The interview was with a panel of 3. They are very friendly so is not as intimidating as it sounds. Overall it was a good experience.

I was contacted by their hiring manager a month later, but I had already accepted another offer somewhere else.
