    Operations Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Englewood, CO
    Anonymous Employee in Englewood, CO
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed 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!

    Quality Assurance Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Phoenix, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. 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.

    Field Service Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. 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.

    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.
