    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Edinburgh, Scotland
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Dell in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Dell contacted me via LinkedIn and invited me to apply. Despite my misgivings over the low salary and benefits on offer I decided to go through with the interview. Initial phone interview with basic Java questions. Face-to-face interview with three team members at the Dell office (A very tatty rented space) and two further phone interviews. Despite being invited to apply by Dell themselves nobody bothered to contact me after the final interview to give me the results.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bracknell, England
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Dell in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was painless and was professionally run. The interviewers were pleasant and seemed informed about the company and the position and asked relevant questions. They were able to answer all the questions posed to them and the interview was run on time and pleasant.

    The interview wasn't very long but the time was well spent. They did not ask any of the soft interview questions but got straight to the point and described the position, it's requirements and their expectations.

    Reasons for Declining

    I did not feel that either the position or the company was a good fit for me as the role was very well defined and I was looking for something with more variety and challenge to it.

    Ad Hoc. The company I interviewed with had just been acquired by Dell. There was a discrepancy between their hiring practices versus Dell.
    This will probably not be applicable to Dell today.
