I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at DISH in January 2010.
Interview Details – I spent 3 hours taking a assessment test, which although long, was fine. I would rather work with other intelligent and educated people, so if the test screens for that, I'm okay with that. Then I was scheduled for a face-to-face interview, which started with another shorter math/language assessment test, which seemed redundant to the first test I had already apparently passed. I also felt a little bit like a sheep being herded through a mechanical process, which I didn't appreciate.
However, from there, I was taken to a team interview with the hiring manager (who was late to the interview) and two senior analysts. They were very open with me about what to expect and were pretty well prepared with questions appropriate to assessing my experience. So the actual conversation was good, I felt, but I was left with significant uncertainties about whether I wanted to work at company with such a micromanaging CEO (who checks a badge sign in/out report to see that you were in the building during the required core hours).
It has been about 3 weeks since my interview and I haven't received any kind of response. I followed up with both a thank you and a one-week status update request and was only told they were still interviewing. I'm not holding my breath, but then again, I don't think I want to.
Interview Question – What do you do if the CEO wakes up to a cloudy day and tells you that he has changed his mind 180 degrees from what he told you and signed off on yesterday? View Answer
