Should i try for Dell???

Old 2 Comments on Should i try for Dell??? 52

I am getting certified through a tech school. I am working on some certifications unfortunitly, but they are better than nothing.I have worked with laptops, desktops,all in ones. I have worked on printers. I have learned a lot. Yesterday we went on a tour of Dells oklahoma city building. They had a whole bunch of awesome stuff over there.  They sat us in a confrence room, and began to ask a bunch of questions to test our knowledge about computers. The only thing I’m not good at is Raid.  I can tell you what size of a Hard drive to get, Ammount of Ram, Proccessor size. More than likely i can help. They said the benefits were, three thousand dollar rembursment for college tuition, instantly starting 401k,life insurance, they will pay for my certifications and the training for the certs. with every cert that i get i will get a raise. I want to send them my resume now, but it doesnt seem real. The manager said, “without any certs the employees start at $15 per hour.” getting a two dollar raise every time i get a cert would be Awesome. I planned on getting my A plus,linux, and security plus. Theres a lot more certifications i could try to. My question is, How can Dell afford to do this? Sure they are a big company, but with all their employees making a great annual salary. Wouldn’t that hurt tem in the long run? I might try it anyway, but id like to know your opinions.



I'm a senior in High School. I live in oklahoma. I am currently in Votech for Computer systems. I plan on combining the knowledge of computers with the art that is working on cars. so you might buy a car where the steering wheel boots into XP, when you start the car lol

    Well, I would assume that Dell doesn’t have THAT many of these positions available. However, with that said, it makes sense that a company that large would try and entice lifelong employees. Investing in an employee in the very beginning and having that employee and their knowledge / history for 20 or 30 years is a lot cheaper than rolling over new staff every 3 to 5 years (which is common when you’re hiring skilled, qualified people who may be using positions as resume builders to move onto the next bigger thing). If I were you, at your age, and I had the opportunity to work at Dell for $15 an hour, I’d scoop that in a heartbeat. Having the backing of a company that size can really help you cut down on training / education costs, and gives you a serious leg up in the resume department.

    I would grab that in a heartbeat. You never know when you could get in that company again. Even if you don’t stay there 5 years, having Dell on your resume is a huge.
