    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at AT&T in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    AT&T showed up at my college's career fair. After giving them my resume, I was contacted to do a behavioral interview. Most of these questions can be answered using the STAR method. Next was the technical interview done over video conference in AT&T's own software, conducted by two developers. I heard back from the recruiter two weeks later.

    AT&T Retail Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    interviewed at AT&T in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and it took about four weeks before I got a phone call for an interview. However they were quick to schedule the interview and were very accommodating with working around my schedule to make sure I could make it in for the interview. The interview took about an hour, and mostly involved questions about how I handled certain situations in my past jobs. About two weeks after the interview I got a phone call from the staffing manager giving me an offer based on the assumption that I passed my drug and background check. Background was the most detailed I had ever been through, the company required old w-2's, as well as several references. Drug test was easy, though they had a hard time getting it scheduled in a place near by. The background check and drug test portion took about nine days.

    Retail Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AT&T in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I first applied online and immediately completed the online test. Within passing this, I received a call from a staffing person about 3 days later. (I first applied on Friday, I received this call on a Monday). Unlike others, this was not a phone interview, she simply just asked me when I would be available to meet with the hiring manager. About a week later I met with the hiring manager at a corporate office. This interview last 10-15 minutes. Just went over my resume and was asked about how I deal with difficult customers, what selling techniques do I use, etc. I was also asked what phone I currently have in this interview. I was really unsure of if I would move forward or not because the interviewer showed very little emotion. I was told that i would know if I was selected to move forward by looking online and viewing my job submission status. If it said "not considering you at this time.," then obviously you were not selected.

    About an hour later my status updated telling me I was still in the running for the position. 2 days later , on a sunday the store manager called me to set up an interview for later that week. At this interview, I again went through my resume, my selling techniques and my goals in life. I was told about the job and was asked if I was up for challenge. At the end of the interview, He thanked me for my time and that was it.

    5 days later, I got a call from the recruiter giving me a contingent offer that would be finalized after I completed my background check through hireright and drugtest.

    Retail Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newark, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newark, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AT&T in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application online and completed 2 personality assessments. The position I applied for got filled however a few days later I got an email from a regional hiring manager with a phone number to call. I called and we spoke briefly.

    From what I read online it appears as though they do a 3 step interview process. Phone interview, then centralized hiring manager, then realistic job preview or an interview with the management at the store you've applied to. When I spoke to the regional hiring manager I wouldn't say that it was an interview. She asked me questions about my availability and discussed some salary information and asked if I was ok with that.

    After that I scheduled an interview with the centralized hiring manager at a store. She told me at the beginning of the interview that her job was to decided "if i could do the job". I smiled a lot and I wore a lot of confidence to the interview. I was knowledgeable about the telecommunications interview and I answered all of her questions. The interview questions were behavioral interview questions so if you can google that and maybe the night before copy and paste a WHOLE BUNCH into a word document and just type out your answers and spend time going over it. They want you to answer the questions in STAR format. Google that and prepare your answers. Be specific in your examples and make sure you make note of the result.

    Be friendly. In my interview we didn't spend a lot of time with the questions at all. The interview lasted about an hour but to be honest it didn't feel that way. We did a lot of talking about other things industry related. Tomorrow I will be going on my realistic job preview and I'm excited!

    Also when you leave your interview be sure to ask for a card and send a letter of thanks to the interviewer for the opportunity and why you feel like you'll be a great fit. If you're told that you'll be receiving a response or to expect a call by a certain day or time ... reach out to the centralized hiring manager IMMEDIATELY if you have not been contacted by that time. Show you're interested and show you're punctual.

    I started about a month ago and was called by a HR personnel, i was schedule for an interview and went. It was a good experience even though i dont consider myself to have good interview skills.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Piscataway, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at AT&T in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Heard about internship/co-op program through a friend who was already working there. It is a job that requires you to be a student with a GPA of at least 3.0, with at least a year of school left. Questions are basic networking questions, asking about topics such as LANs, WANs, and IP addresses. Interviewers are looking to see that you have good communication skills; you do not have to answer their questions correctly necessarily. As long as you show you are willing to learn and can communicate well, the interview will go well.
