    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Dell Technologies (Austin, TX (US)).

    Interview

    1st round: I was contacted by a manager of one of their software dev teams to do phone screening which took about 30 mins. The manager spent 15 mins talking about the project that her group was working on, then she asked about my background. Very class HR questions. Got scheduled for a technical phone screen.

    2nd round: The technical phone screen was pretty easy, basic data structure such as Stack, Queue, Graph (no coding, only discussed the use and time complexity). One question involving threads in Java which caught me off guard, but the interviewer gave me hint.

    Never heard back from them after the 2nd round, they might move on with other candidates. I feel a little bit disappointed since they did not even bother replying my follow-up email to ask for the status.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dell Technologies (Round Rock, TX (US)) in September 2008.

    Interview

    I received a call for a phone screen 3-days after posting to a position. The manager did a skills interview and a review of the position. A week later a group interview was scheduled. First couple of interviewers were standard, with no goofy questions. The third interviewer was from another department that had absolutely no involvement with the group I was interviewing for, and he had no questions for me. I questioned him about his position and how this group would help his group, but he had no feedback. We spoke about the company culture and wrapped up the whole thing in 10 minutes. The third person would have been a peer. His stated concern was that this position was created to eliminate other positions in the department.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dell Technologies (Minneapolis, MN (US)) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by an older hiring manager. The only thing resembling a technical interview was him asking me to rate myself on various programming languages. He then spent the rest of the time talking about how he was overbooked for the day and that he had lunch in my hometown once.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Dell Technologies (Madison, WI (US)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Mainly behavioral. The interviewer asked me to code a simple program and then asked mainly about my undergraduate coursework and projects. He also asked some basic aptitude and logical questions which I answered correctly. It was a good interview but later they messaged me saying that there were no positions open as of now (which I found a bit strange).

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing specific. Asked me which software languages had I worked on and what courses have you taken.   Answer Question
