    Marketing Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at DISH.

    Interview

    I had an initial phone screen with HR and it went terribly. The HR at DISH is very unprofessional and barely competent. I was only asked 2 questions, why dish, what do you know about dish. Not a single thing about my resume, experience, or qualifications. The guy talked for 30 minutes straight telling me about DISH, it was like I was talking to a sales rep. I asked him questions about the position and he had no answers at all. Very disappointing and it was silly for the call to go 30 minutes. He told me they would let me know at the end of the week, I followed up with him and they said DISH was looking at other candidates. Weirdest phone interview I've ever had. He just wanted to talk about DISH the whole time, honestly he probably didn't even have my resume.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at DISH (Phoenix, AZ) in July 2015.

    Interview

    In-depth application online: Standard format. After I took a general personality and comprehension test. On the comprehension test it mostly quizzed me on my percentage mathematical skills. The third and final step included a rather lengthy (in my opinion) explanation of dummy call center software where you are tested with two automated calls to demonstrate how well you can use the software after listening to instructions.

    Interview

    The process itself wasn't terrible - a few online assessments, and spoke with three different people in the office. I never received one bit of follow up with regards to this interview. A week and a half later, I received a call from a different recruiter at Dish than the one I had been working with, inviting me to interview with the company for a completely different position than the one I applied for (one which I had no interest in), with no mention as to my previous interview the week before! I chose not to continue with the process, as the whole experience left a rather bad taste in my mouth.

    Various Positions Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at DISH (Englewood, CO) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for nearly 200 positions in Information Technology at DISH over the past 3 years. I've been invited to take assessments and I've done great on all of them. Although I've been perfectly qualified for all of the positions which I've applied to, I've only gotten 3 calls for interviews with HR...they've never went further. I've found the staff that work in HR at Dish very unprofessional and rather rude. They say that they will call you back at certain times, yet they never do. I feel that the reason that I'm not being considered is due to my age, which is over 50.

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at DISH (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    Brief phone interview and then a group in office interview. After the group interview I was asked to take the assessments at the office which was very loud and distracting as their computers are located in the lobby and they were having technical difficulties that day. During the interview they asked ridiculous questions, like if you are the PM and your manager tells you that based on accident reports all drivers will now need to drive backwards at all times, what would you do?

    Corporate Recruiter Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at DISH.

    Interview

    Took first assessment on reasoning skills, which was followed by a phone screen the next day. During the phone interview, an onsite interview was scheduled for the following week, which lasted two hours. One hour for two more assessments, one on deductive/analytical, etc. reasoning and the other on SAT style verbal and math questions. This was followed by two separate individual interviews, which involved standard and straightforward questions. Most question were regarding the skills required for the job and if I had them. No 'trick' questions asking about weaknesses or anything like 'tell me about a time when you...'. I thought the interviews were very encouraging and promising (telling me when I would start [that week], who would train me, talking about the commute/traffic, referring to possible future promotions, etc.) I have never been so certain that I was getting an offer after an interview as I was after that one. The next day I got a phone call saying they went with someone else.

    Interview

    Scripted phone interview designed to quickly weed out applicants. Keep in mind, the hiring process is streamlined and fast paced to get people hired quickly. Wonder why they need people so badly? Why can't they keep people?
