    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at AT&T in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    It takes a while to get hired at AT&T initially. They do promote from within. They want a strong sales background, and a smiley person with a good attitude. They also want you to stand behind the products, especially digital life. That is a huge focus right now, it is no longer a cell phone company. They provide solutions for everything and everyone.

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at AT&T in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied internally for an assistant management position. The first interview was with the Retail Store Manager, and consisted mostly of situational and behavioral questions. Come prepared to answer questions using very specific and detailed situations and past work experiences. The second interview is with the Area Regional Sales Manager, and is a little more laid back. It consists mostly of dialogue. The third interview is with the Director of Sales, and by this time, they have already decided whether or not they are hiring you. This interview is just a screening to make sure that you don't have any glaring personality issues and to give you the clearing to be hired for this or future positions within the company.
