Premesis Technician Interview

Anonymous Employee  in  Austin, TX
Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
Application Details

I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at AT&T in August 2014.

Interview Details

While applying online, you are given a long personality questionnaire (with many questions about honesty, business ethics, morals, etc). If you answer all that correctly, you are asked to come in for a (group) skills test.

The are very strict about you needing to be on time for the appointment ("one minute late and you'll be turned away"), yet after getting there on time, they make you wait for 30 minutes or more until they get their stuff together.

The test covers basic technical thinking, logic, following instructions, etc.

If you pass that test, you then go through a group "job overview" where they explain things like:

You have to go through ten weeks of out-of-town training (Dallas, Houston, etc)
If you are late for any reason by one minute more than once, then you'll probably be fired.
For the first 6 months, you have to accept the schedule they give you - no sick days, work holidays, no change request, etc - no exceptions.

After this, you are given a quick 4-question, one-on-one, interview.

They ask how you handle irate customers, and how you overcome obstacles, etc

If you do well in the interview, they contact you a few days later with a job offer.

    I interviewed in-person. 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 Questions
    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.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. 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 Questions
    • 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.
