    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at DISH in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and heard back from a recruiter within a week or so for an initial phone screening. I then took their standard assessment and had a phone interview with a manager in the communications department. After that, I was invited to fly out to Denver for a face-to-face interview and more assessments.

    Operations Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at DISH in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Process took 4+ weeks.

    I applied online and got contacted by a recruiter almost immediately. Wasn't even a phone interview. He asked me about myself and then proceeded to talk about the job description and what the job responsibilities entailed. I seemed intrigued so I continued. He told me I had to do an assessment online which took about 2 hours and if I passed, we would set up an interview.

    I ended up passing and we set up an interview a week later. I get to the company's building and I had to take ANOTHER assessment which was something like 55 questions in 2 minutes and you got penalized for wrong answers. I rushed through it all then got to interview.

    I interviewed with 5 people; 2 manager, 2 high ups; and one supervisor all in the same interview! It look about an hour to do. One supervisor was unavailable. Questions asked were along the lines of my resume and work experience. Thought the interview went really well.

    About a week later, I get a call from the recruiter saying the supervisor that was unavailable would like to interview with me. I was told that it would just be one person and myself, repeatedly. He told me over the phone, when we met, and right before the interview. The interview started and 2 supervisors came in and the recruiter decided to sit in with us. The questions were tougher and very specific. If you answered in a general term, they would ask you for specific examples and then with follow up questions to that.

    I thought it went well. Recruiter called a week later letting me know they would like to move forward with me. I had to sign a waiver for a background check and get a drug test. They also called my references and made sure they spoke with them. I did all of what they asked.

    One week passes, nothing.

    Another week passes. nothing. (mind you, i've been calling the recruiter and asking what was going on)

    The next week I get a phone call from the recruiter saying they are not going to move forward with me. Thanks a lot "Dish". Worst hiring process ever.

    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!

    Field Service Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed 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.

    Field Service Specialist I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at DISH in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I received a telephone interview one business day after taking the test and filling out the application online. The questions were based on past work experience situations. Remember to keep safety as your number one priority. They will also ask hypothetical customer service questions. The call will be from their recruiting center in Denver. Should they like your responses, they will schedule you an interview with the site manager that same week. The telephone interview should last about 15 minutes.

    You will be interviewed in person by the general and operations managers. They will ask you questions similar to the ones on the telephone. They will also ask you questions such as what have been your biggest goals, how have you dealt with a difficult customer, and the reasons why you have left your previous jobs.

    In most cases, they do not check references or work experience. I gave them bogus google voice phone numbers and they did not call any of them. They do, however, conduct a drug test and check your background. They do check your MVR such as follows; past 3 years for minor traffic violations, past 5 years for accidents; past 7 years for DL suspensions; and past 10 years for DUI's. They do no conduct a physical. The hiring process takes about two months.

    They will probably fly you or give you a rental car to go to the regional training center. They will provide with a $35 a day per diem, and you will share rooms with another trainee.

    Inventory Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Summerville, SC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Summerville, SC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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.
