Difficult Interview

Operations Specialist Interview

Anonymous Employee
Nashville, TN (US)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Dell in June 2010.

Interview Details The interview process is fairly fundamental and effective as long as the applicant listens closely to the questions and follows the instructions. The key is to answer questions using real past experience. They are not trick questions, they are simply set up so the applicant can share historical facts instead of tomorrow's theory.

Interview Question – "Tell me about a time when you had multiple high priority deadlines approaching and you realized you could not make them all nor make everyone happy. What did you do? How did it turn out?"   Answer Question
