    IT Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellingham, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellingham, WA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Clearwire in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Three employees asked a series of questions relating to my experience in areas like team work, training, and my technical skills.

    It was 30 minutes in length, and was fairly awkward. It was a formal interview, but the hiring manager didn't seem like he'd ever done this before. One of the interviewers was a former student at my University. He acted like he had no idea who I was and what my experiences were.

    At the end, they told me I would hear from them one way or the other, by the end of the month. It was been approximately 2 full months since the interview, and I still have not heard back from anyone. I sent a standard follow up email thanking them for their time, and 6 weeks after I sent another one asking for a brief update, and offered them any additional information they might need.

    I was fairly confident in the process, as I'd met with the recruiters previously, they expressed excitement in meeting with me again, and the interview went well. I was disappointed with the lack of any response what so ever.

    Oracle Applications Database Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kirkland, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kirkland, WA
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Clearwire in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    They called me out to interview. I was interviewed by a manager. He asked a really dumb question about creating table-spaces from a sheet he held.

    I gave his a brief description and also presented a number of task I perform for the Oracle applications database position. He had no idea what he was being shown and when he asked me what it is I not like in a job I told him working for a manager the does not know the technical part of the systems. He inquired further and I told him its difficult to work for a manager in IT when they make decisions on direction that make no sense when they should be delegating to one that knows what best in that specific technology
    - database - applications - servers - etc.

    That was the end of the interview - he did not want to deal with anyone who would present that type of challenge.

    Software Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Antonio, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Antonio, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Clearwire in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    There was a phone screen, pretty typical, including a manager and a resident specialist. During this part of the interview the specialist took the opportunity to show off his skills. I kept up fine. The onsite interview was really non-technical and VERY poorly planned. The manager in charge of hiring was in a poor mood because of scheduling conflicts and took it out by insulting me and my skill set.

    RF Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Clearwire in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    I had to go through two interviews; phone and panel. The phone interview was done by a recruiter just to see if it was worthwhile for the actual hiring manager to interview me. After I passed the phone interview I was interviewed by three people. Consisted of general questions such as "Tell us about yourself", "What do you currently do", "Do yo have any experience in this field", etc. The process wasa little disjointed since they seemed extremely busy and distracted. The hiring manager was actually eating lunch during the interview process. I didn't have all the requirements they were looking for. It was nice in the fact I got a call from them the next day indicating I wasn't a good fit.

    Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Clearwire in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by HR rep after several months or applying for every position I was remotely qualified for. The interview was fairly short and pertained to info on my resume and questions pertaining to specific job needs. I had researched this company and found a lot of people complaining about management and how the employees are treated. It's difficult to determine if most were just complainers or valid. Most companies with lots of money and little time to ramp up have problems so nothing new.
