    Interview process excellent : efficient, timely, professional
    Onboarding - very poor - too much duplication of requests for same info over and over.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Edmonton, AB
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Dell in April 2007.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was extended and bureaucratic. It was all about saying the right things to the questions and very little about actually interacting with the interviewers. There was an extensive computer based personality and skills test as well as personality and technical one on one interviews.

    Product Marketing Manager Interview

    Application Details

    interviewed at Dell in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    First round interviews was a panel of 3. Was not intense but validating whats on your resume and experience to do the job. My recommendation would be to be confident and don't lie on your resume because they will expose you. Be prepared for the panel type interview.

    Technical Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at Dell in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Completed the Dell online employee form
    Contacted by Talent Acquisition team and reviewed resume; high level summary of role and I agreed it was a fit.
    Phone screened with 2 current Technical Account Managers. Asked technical questions regarding my experience with:
    - Storage - Isci and FC and the benefits of each
    - Server - Models I've worked with, current Dell servers or IBM/HP that I've wok
    - Networking knowledge - light stuff like ICMP, SNMP, IP
    - Presentation skills
    - Leadership roles
    - Sales ability

    Lasts about 30 minutes. Pass and you're recommended to TAM Manager interview.

    I was light in my presentation and went blank on server models I've worked with. Know the job description and apply your background to it and you should be fine.

    Interview Questions
    • Wasn't very difficult, I just drew a blank when they asked me about my past server experience. It's not a hands-on role so I was not prepared. I did not know the model of servers I worked with because there were so many and I didn't think it would matter. Also, my past experience had no public speaking involvement. I never presented to C levels, only other technical people.   Answer Question
