I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AT&T (Atlanta, GA) in June 2012.
I was contacted by a former teammate who notified me that there was a contract position open for a job I had previously held as a full time employee. I was told to choose from a list of preferred contract companies and apply with one of them for the position. A few days later I received a call from a staffing person from the contract company who conducted an Initial phone interview. This was followed by a phone interview with the Associate Director of Learning Services. I received a job offer pending the outcome of a drug test and background check.
- None, they were all behavioral interview questions. Answer Question
I told the staffing person what my desired hourly rate was and they accepted it.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at AT&T (Atlanta, GA) in March 2012.
The phone interview consisted of questions about myself, skills, experience. The 1:1 interview was about my skillset & why I was interested in working for the company.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AT&T (Atlanta, GA) in February 2012.
I received a voice mail from the hiring manager of a new service rollout for automating security and alarm systems using smartphone and tablets. I called back twice before I was able to reach the hiring manager back. When we set up the phone interview to "further discuss my resume" I called promptly at the agreed upon time. I was informed that she needed someone who could "hit the ground runnIng with no training" because this is a "culture where change is the only constant". Furthermore, I was expected to "step in with little to no Onboarding, move In, and produce on short deadlines to roll out new hire training program gor this new initiative drawing from scratch". Then, agreeing that I am adaptable to a basically self-directed training for immediate delivery of work product, I was then informed that I must be proficient in certain proprietary training design software (my indusry peers have never heard of it, by the way), and a list of other IT skills which were not listed in the original job posting to begin with. When I inquired about this, I was told that what I described sounded more like "her iob" and the phone call interview ended quite abruptly. I now find myself feeling differently about applying to this corporation when the job postings do not match the hiring manager's actual need and it is clear that, although I was applying to be part of creating meaningful training programs for a new service offering sales group for this company, it appears that training is actually not a part of the Onboarding once hired.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AT&T (Plymouth, MI) in August 2011.
I worked for AT&T before, and was admited on a reference from a previous supervisor. The interviewer was not only personable and positive, but appropriate and professional. I felt a phone interview was the perfect way to be as objectivve as possible.

I was offered more than I asked for. Of course, I accepted.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AT&T (Detroit, MI) in March 2011.
Met with the hiring team leader for 30 minute one-to-one interview. Discussed my work history, similar projects on which I had worked, typical challenges I had encountered in the past, my gut reaction to sample problems posed by the interviewer. Also discussed various ways to teach same content in face-to-face and internet-meeting-based training environments. Very informal discussion but with followups on most answers.
