    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Bracknell, England
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bracknell, England
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week - interviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Dell.

    Interview Details

    Previous email contacts, they told me they were interested in my profile and wanted more details and my CV.

    Appointed a phone interview, typical big company questions ("why did you leave your last job?" "present yourself") and some technical questions ("difference between hardware and software" "name some videocard brands in the market"). About 25min. total.

    After that, next day they appointed an on-site interview with a board of three, but HR representative was missing, so the interview was conducted by two team members.

    It was similar to the phone interview but 90min. long, asking about strong points, weakness, milestones in your past jobs, how did you interact with your superiors and how was the feedback, and one technical test, situational question.

    Interview Questions
    • nothing special, if you've done interviews with big companies they're quite similar. Know yourself and how to react and you're done.   Answer Question
