Apply Online
Initial Phone Interview
In person Interview with Operations Manager
Drug Test
Final Interview With Operations Manager

Once I had the in-person interview, I was told pending everything else I would be hired.

Be professional, ask questions about how their office runs/benefits/hours.

After the initial phone interview about 30 days had passed. They said they would call me about setting up the in person interview. I called them back and they had forgotten. If I had never called, I would have never gotten the job!

Interview Question – Was there ever a time you saw a coworker doing something you knew was wrong? What actions did you take to fix it?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Non-negotiable. Based on where your office is located, starting pay is around $14-$18 an hour. Work hard and you will 90% of the time have overtime.

Quality Assurance Specialist Interview

Quality Assurance Specialist
Phoenix, AZ

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 1 week - interviewed at DISH in November 2011.

Interview Details – I began as an entry-level CSS. In that interview, I first answered some basic questions with an HR rep about drug use, criminal history and my willingness to obtain Dish services if offered employment. After that, a manager arrived to conduct a more in-depth interview; these were basic questions anyone might be asked: Where do you see yourself in five years? What are your strengths? Your weaknesses? etc.

Interview Question – Nothing seemed original or unexpected regarding questions.   Answer Question

Field Service Specialist Interview

Field Service Specialist

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

Interview Details – I applied online and was contacted by a recruiter. My initial interview was with a Field Service Manager who fed me a bunch of lies about how quickly people can earn bonuses, raises, and promotions. His biggest point was that I should not have sex with customers. He later got fired. The next interview was with the Installation Manager who was honest that the job sucks really bad and he tried to talk me out of it, but I needed a job. I should have listened to him. I later interviewed for a Field service Manager position (which I got) with a GM who didn't care about anything but getting his own paycheck. Maybe he had just given up, because his bosses were terrible. He later got fired. My second interview was with a Regional Manager who made me feel like there was hope for the company and that I could make a nice career there. We both agreed that you get better results out of people by treating them well and succeeding together. He later got fired.

Interview Question – What would you do if a customer tried to have sex with you?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – They don't negotiate. Period. They start low and stay low.

Customer Service Specialist Interview

Customer Service Specialist
Flushing, NY

I interviewed at DISH in January 2012.

Interview Details – Very easy, they will take anyone at a drop of a pen. I applied online, failed miserably, but still got to come in for an interview. I walked in at any time I feel like it. The moment I got in, they instantly accepted me. There was no room for anywhere to begin asking for anything. They are willing to do all the paper works, all they want is expected me to agree to full time and work right away.

Interview Question – They don't have any, they just need people.   Answer Question

Inventory Specialist Interview

Inventory Specialist
Summerville, SC

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at DISH in September 2013.

Interview Details – Single interview contacted same day for background check and references and then the next day I was contacted for drug screening. I thought everything was going well until two weeks later when I was contacted and told that I wouldn't be getting the job due to a no point violation speeding ticket. I even told them in the interview about my driving history and they still went forward.

For a position that driving was such a huge part of the job description that they neglected to touch on it in the interview and focused more on the warehouse operations they sure used my one speeding ticket as an excuse not to hire me.

Interview Question – What do I do outside of work?   Answer Question
