I did not feel taken serious, and the manager who invited me was already fired, which I've found out later, once I worked there.

Interview Details The onsite interview consisted of 4 (1 of them being with HR) 1:1 interviews, each interview being around 30 mins. each, and they covered both technical/problem-solving and behavioral questions. The sessions were pretty laid-back and informal and started off with some bit of chit-chatting followed by an understanding of what was expected from the role, what I had done previously of the same nature, etc.

Interview Question – The "Three Light Switches" riddle, which one can answer (and I could fortunately) on the spot one thinking through but it was a bit unexpected but a good way of testing problem solving in my opinion.   Answer Question

Web Content Editor Interview

Web Content Editor

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Dell in June 2014.

Interview Details The interview was somewhat stiff and brief; definitely corporatey feel to it. Remote dialed in participants didn't participate, just listened, which was odd to me but that's probably just part of their HR protocol. Overall though, nice people, straightforward process.

Interview Question – Basic interview questions, nothing very challenging.   Answer Question
