    Operations Specialist Interview

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

    I interviewed online - interviewed at EchoStar in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    I took a test online as part of the application process, before being called for the interview. The test is a weed out. After being called to interview, I went in and there was an onsite test to check basic abilities, it was multiple choice and timed. I interviewed with 3 people all asking questions. One person was the supervisor that I'd be working under. Then, I was told that they would contact me with a decision. I got a call within a week or two.

    Interview Questions
    • It's been a long time, so I don't remember many specific questions that they ask. I seem to remember that there were general questions about my work history and being asked to describe how I had handled prior work issues.   Answer Question

    Call Center Agent Interview

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

    I interviewed online - interviewed at EchoStar.

    Interview Details

    This was a fairly easy interview, the management I met through the process were kind, but very distant. I understand why now. It is because the place is so difficult to work at with how the employees are treated that no one will close to anyone due to the constantly revolving door.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at EchoStar.

    Interview Details

    Quick turnaround if the recruiting team and department managers like you experience and education. Very friendly group to speak with and they know what questions to ask to determine if you really know what you are talking about. The panel interview was a conference call but with a large corporation that was expected.
