    Interview

    Initial phone interview with Manager followed by a Technical Panel Interview. This was followed by another technical phone interview followed by HR. The initial interview was all about getting to know you. The panel interview was more scenario based questions along with the usual technical questions. The follow up phone interview was impromptu to gauge how one responds to unexpected questions when not prepared.

    Engineering Project Manager (ISO Compliance) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at SonicWALL (San Jose, CA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    HR responded in less then 24hrs to my resume submitted via Dell website. Had interview with hiring manager in 24hrs. Interviewed with two potential peer managers then the hiring manager. Ran out of time with hiring manager. I researched Dell SonicWall briefly through ReferenceUSA, a current employee in a different organization from the , plus a user of their products. The culture seems laid back but fast paste. There seems to be concern about how engineers all have their own way of doing things, but not enough concern to mandate standards. They do not want someone who will rock the boat or add non-productive tasks to the engineers workload. Dell just acquired SonicWall in April 2012 and is taking a slow approach to integrating them into the corporate culture. Managers are not "people managers" in the traditional sense. They are more project/process managers.

    Interview

    I applied through a Consultancy, Had a telephonic round first where they asked questions like DHCP Relay, difference between EMS/NMS testing, and some on selenium. Although I did not answer much I got into second round where they asked me to prepare for a 4-5Hrs Interview.
    When I first went there The Manager himself came to reception and took me to some meeting room. He was good and we had a long chat about my life and career history, and he took down each and every information on his dairy. Later he asked couple of technical questions, which I answers , but could not answer couple which I did not mention in my resume. After 2 hrs of discussion, he asked me to sit and called another person to take another technical rounds, It was easy as I was prepared for it. Mostly these questions are same as what he asked in the telephonic round. Once He is done with the interview, he went asking me to wait and after 5 mins , he came back and said I can leave at which point I released probably the HR is on leave.
