Interview Details – After applying I received an email from a recruiter to do some assessments. They took a good 2 hours and required things like basic math and logic problems. Basically everything you forgot from high school when you went to college. After that I got a phone call to set up an interview and told about the job. I agreed to do the interview (thinking I wasn't going to get the job and it didn't matter since I had accepted another job offer before) The interview was me taking another assessment and then meeting with my potential bosses and their bosses. There was very little feed back if they even liked me or not but I was told they wanted to move forward in the hiring process. This was a Friday. On Monday i was called to go take a drug test and they were doing my background check. I did my drug test that Tuesday and was told that I would hear from someone by the end of the week. Nothing. I waited and two weeks after my interview I got the offer officially with the offer letter. I still don't know if they wanted me as an employee out of liking me or whatever they were thinking.

Interview Details –
The whole hiring process took like 3 weeks from when I first applied online to me getting the job offer.
First I applied online in which they made me do a Wonderlic test which caught me off guard
I got emailed about a phone interview a couple of weeks after.
The phone interview was easy. It was corporate who called so it was basic questions asking why I wanted to work for dish? Why should i get this position? stuff like that. They also let me know the job description and the pay.
Once she finished asking me questions she scheduled me for a face to face interview
I showed up to the face to face interview and before the interview started I had to do another Wonderlic test. When i finished that i had the interview, which was a little more nerve wrecking than the phone interview because I was being interviewed by 3 people: The general manager, The warehouse supervisor, and a Human Resources representative. They asked me what skills i possessed that would help me in the job? Asked about the job history relevant to the hiring position.
Once that finished 2 days after the face to face interview I got an email asking for my references, background check, and drug test. Make sure your references are good they will check.
A couple of days later after I turned in everything they called me and offered the position
Negotiation Details – No negotiation.

Interview Details – I filled out an application online. I was called the next day by a dish recruiter to do a phone interview. She set up an appointment a couple days later for a 1 on 1 Interview. The 1 on 1 interview was pretty basic and generic. Normal SMART answers are what is wanted. I was told at the end of that interview that I would receive an email within 2 days to do a drug test and only had 2 days to complete it. After the drug test was the background check/processing wait which lasted about 2 weeks. I was then contacted to set up my training class. I had the option to go out of state with expenses paid the following Monday but I chose to wait another week and do the training at my home office.
