    Field Service Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at DISH in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, took an assessment test and got a call 2 days later to set up an in person interview. Did the in person and got an offer email through email a week later. I would call the interview a positive one simply because from the moment they called to the in person interview every single person was completely honest with the requirements. They even went as far to say the job is not easy and requires long hours. I accepted because of the previous stated reason, very honest and upfront. I can confirm that after being hired every question I asked was answered honestly.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at DISH.

    Interview Details

    The interview is you telling them how to put a pen together as if you had to do it over the phone. Giving direct details is important. Prior to that you re-took the online simulation and the personality test all over again. Plan to be there for a few hours. The waiting room will have multiple applicants.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at DISH in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    1) Submitted an application online
    2) Got a call from an HR person about a week later asking me to come in for an interview
    3) Interviewed on site with the manager of the position, also took an assessment test which was fairly easy
    4) Got a call the next day from the HR person, saying they think I would be better for a different position, and asked me to interview with that team
    5) Interviewed with manager on new team
    6) Came back a few days later and interviewed with the director of the team
    7) Got a call the next day saying I was hired
    8) They came back about a week later with an official offer, salary was kind of low so I pushed back, and they gave me an additional $2k (still low, but better than nothing)
    9) I accepted the offer and started the next week

    Interview questions were all just standard (tell me about your past jobs/school, why do you want to work for dish, etc.). No weird or difficult questions.

    The girl in HR who interviewed me made me wait until she decided what she was ordering for lunch (right in front of me) then began talking to the security guard about her weight. This seems to me to be very unprofessional.
