    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Clearwire in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. A couple weeks later I received an email invitation to a group interview. Went and they had an informal get to know each other session, followed by a couple of sales pitches, trying to sell them on why they should hire another person at the table and then why they should hire ourselves. Played a puzzle game to see how well we worked as part of a team, then picked a random item from a bucket and gave a sales pitch in private to the recruiters. The following day I got a call to meet with a store manager.

    Indirect Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hollywood, FL
    Anonymous Employee in Hollywood, FL
    Application Details

    The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Clearwire in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    Step 1: A phone interview with the recruiter,
    Step 2: 1:1 interview with the hiring manager, and if all goes well you meet with the director.
    Step 3: Interview with Director

    I thought the interview process is well organized and scheduled. I felt the organization was very informal since both manager and director were in jeans and sneakers. I did not feel it was a very professional environment based on the attitudes of the recruiter, manager and director.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    The base pay (45K) is very low for the time commitment that you are asked to work (70 hours, nights + weekends). When the recruiter called me she rushed through the commission and benefits and then got annoyed when I asked questions to understand how the commission worked.

    Retail Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Clearwire in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interview was pretty standard as far as interviews go. The location was not bad but I got interesting vibes from, they had a training class starting the same day, which when I went looking at the other candidates kind of made me worry a little on what exactly the kind of company I will be working for. The sales end kind of worries me slightly.

    Oracle Applications Database Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kirkland, WA
    Anonymous Employee in Kirkland, WA
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Clearwire in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    They called me out to interview. I was interviewed by a manager. He asked a really dumb question about creating table-spaces from a sheet he held.

    I gave his a brief description and also presented a number of task I perform for the Oracle applications database position. He had no idea what he was being shown and when he asked me what it is I not like in a job I told him working for a manager the does not know the technical part of the systems. He inquired further and I told him its difficult to work for a manager in IT when they make decisions on direction that make no sense when they should be delegating to one that knows what best in that specific technology
    - database - applications - servers - etc.

    That was the end of the interview - he did not want to deal with anyone who would present that type of challenge.
