    MBA Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Dell Technologies (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    On campus recruiting. Came for company presentation and offered on site visit. Application was also via on campus portal. All very standard.

    Now here's the weird part:
    Your chances in being hired are dictated by the happy hour prior to your interview. Not a screening call or interactions with the company the months leading up. Or, what most normal companies do, the interview.

    I feel that the process automatically discounts introverts trying to become extroverts. Its one thing if an 'airport test' was chatting with a recruiter over drinks. An entirely different thing if over 30 candidates are expected to enter social circles and ask questions 'correctly'. That's not normal inter company interaction. Everyone in this process is concerned about receiving an offer, so no one is truly authentic. If Dell was trying to judge fit, then this is quite possibly the worst way to gague anything real out of a person.

    Anyway, the happy hour dictates the type of interview you receive the next day. Do well and you will receive a very light conversational interview. Do badly and be prepared for a borderline hostile interview bombarded with questions without a chance to catch your breath. I've gone through hundreds of interviews prior to B school and never experienced one where I felt so uncomfortable by the tone and pace of the interviewer, especially since Dell misleadingly tells all their candidates to enter in a very conversational mindset (which I've confirmed that my colleagues who had positive reactions the night before received a much lighter interview).

    I'd love to work for Dell in theory...but not if this is their hiring process. This process makes me question Dell's ability to gauge talent and how they make advancement decisions internally overall.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Dell Technologies (Round Rock, TX (US)).

    Interview

    While attempting to schedule the call portion of the interview, the HR person had ghosted me, then I randomly received a rejection letter. There were other parts of the communication where HR had seemed absent-minded, and apologized for missing a call because of an unexpected meeting. Waste of my time, and shockingly unprofessional for a large company.
