Premesis Technician Interview

Premesis Technician

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at AT&T in May 2014.

Interview Details – took 2 weeks, had a test, pretty easy, then striagh to interview. The interview itself was very straightforward, they ask you three questions mostly related to customer service and sales. Make sure you tell them exactly what you have done in the past that will translate into this job.

Interview Question – try not to ask too much about the ladders of the company, they tend to get prettty anal about it, focus on the job you are applying for first   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at AT&T in December 2013.

Premesis Technician
Miami, FL

I applied in-person and the process took 4 months - interviewed at AT&T in May 2013.

Interview Details – Interview was pretty routine, but the background check and your work history was rediculous. AT&T uses a company called hire right that ask me question of jobs I worked for in the 90's. It was a frustrating back and forth for about 2 months.

Interview Question – What Areas do you need improvement on?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Non exsistant. They pretty much told you what they were going to give you. You either took it or they moved on to the next candidate.

Premesis Technician Interview

Premesis Technician
Cleveland, OH

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at AT&T in January 2009.

Interview Details – You initially get called in to take two separate tests. You take these tests with a group of other people that are looking for the same job. The more technical and difficult one is given first. If you pass that test the second test is easy and just basic customer service and common sense type questions. After passing the two tests you talk to the HR guy and a manager. They ask all the same basic background and situational questions that are always asked in interviews.

Interview Question – The pre-test before the interview is the most difficult. It makes sure that you have very basic cabling skills and abilities.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – They offer you a hourly rate based on experience and education. You either take the offer or refuse it. There is no negotiation.

Premesis Technician Interview

Premesis Technician
Conyers, GA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at AT&T in May 2012.

Interview Details – I have been interviewed (and conducting interviews) for more than 15 yrs. While it is quite normal for a hiring manager to lay out some goals and expectations for the job, this interview was like no other I have been to. After arriving at the interview site, I was seated in a room with approximately 10 other applicants. Two hiring managers took turns berating and threatening the applicants assuring each of us that if we did not achieve each of the company's goals and expectations, we would be subject to severe disciplinary actions. They must have used the phrase "you will be terminated" 50 times. Next, they went on to describe the unrealistic goals and expectations. I would describe their overall attitude as condescending and callous. And all of this of course, for a salary comparable to what you could make 'stocking shelves' in a grocery store.

Interview Question – No usual questions. Nothing unexpected. Name one thing you could improve at.... What was your biggest accomplishment in a previous job... etc.   Answer Question
