    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at AT&T (Atlanta, GA) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Phone screen followed by on-site interview. Nothing very difficult about that. They background check company was extremely annoying as they insisted that I remember and provide contact information for past bosses going back 15 to almost 20 years ago. Do you know how hard it is to track down former bosses after 15 years? I finally told them 3 times that I could not find the boss and finally they accepted that.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at AT&T (Burbank, CA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    It was mainly driven by algorithm and technical questions, a lady was asking Java question but she don't have a clue the difference between inheritance and interface and was taken my correct answer as a wrong one. I admitted that I have been out of school for a long time and haven't studied the algorithm question really well, but that's the trend I guess for major technical companies.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at AT&T (Bothell, WA) in April 2010.

    Interview

    Years ago...was called on a position for AT&T. I had worked there before and had a great experience, so I accepted the interview. I met a manager and was taken back to his private office for a 1 on 1. Basically we never had a real interview as you will see below.

    Interview Questions

    • There wasn't much of any questions asked at all. From the time I stepped into the managers office he was interrupted continually with calls and people stopping by his office. I should have just walked out and in hindsight wished I had. I felt it was very unprofessional and rude. I had to drive 1 hour there and back, plus take time off work and felt they wasted my time.   Answer Question
