    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed 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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Interview Details

    Campus recruitment. 4 rounds. Basic data structures and algorithm questions. Not tough at all.
    3 technical rounds and 1 HR interview round. Mostly a panel observing you carefully and even helping you.

    1st technical round had data structure questions.
    2nd round was describing your projects and the design chosen for them and why?
    3rd round again algorithm questions (not too hard)

    Interview Questions
    • Developed my own thesis project in college. The toughest part was in explaining in precise and concise manner the entire software design in a relatively short amount of time before the interviewer lost interest   Answer Question

    Technical Account Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Dell.

    Interview Details

    I found out about this position through a posting online and was particularly interested in it because it was based in France. The online application was slightly confusing and ended up submitting my application before I actually finished. I tried to reach out to the Montpellier office (which was where I applied) but it was almost invisible. What's worse is that they when I looked up the same position in the USA, the responsibilities were more technical and refined vs the france one which seemed like any jane doe with some computer skills could do.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I was asked for technical interviews with two different groups, no HR part involved so far. Applied through university. Interview invitation sent by email. We got a free dinner (dell networking event) the night before interview day.

    Interview Questions
    • Basic data structure, string manipulation, pointers. Since I learned about these during freshmen year, I pretty much forgot most of these when I was interviewed. I didn't review because I thought first round should be HR, but I was wrong...   Answer Question
