Inside Sales Representative
Phoenix, AZ

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at DISH in January 2011.

Interview Details – Was told in the interview that it was a 4 day 10 hour shift work week with a full 3 days off. Was never told that you were forced to work a 5th day almost every week without extra compensation. Was then told that it was easy to make $80~90k per yearwhich turned out to be another lie.
Was told how easy it was to sell tv, these people are calling in looking for service, simple process. Never told about the false advertising that got people to call in and the they are upset that the 24.95 TV services is actually more than $60 after all the crap ad ons.
Misleading interview process

Interview Question – Can you stretch the truth to get a sale?   Answer Question

Inside Sales Representative
Tempe, AZ

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at DISH in September 2012.

Interview Details – Phone interview, online assessment test, and then a face to face interview. The assessment is a great introduction to what you will be doing. It forces you to spend a hour or two doing redundant sales scenarios in a simulator. If you can't stomach this part, don't take the job.

Interview Question – Are you willing to work 70 or 80 hours a week, nights and weekends.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Wife didn't want me working all those hours. I was working my own business, so the hours I was working was from home.

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at DISH.

Interview Details – I did the online application and the online assessments. Then someone from Colorado gave me a telephone interview. She set me up for a face to face interview in phoenix. The interviewer seemed to like the interview. He went to get the recruiter to give me a tour and he came back and said to go home that they will contact me in 2 to 3 days. They may have more assessment tests for me to take. So I waited 2 days. Then exactly 72 hours later, I get a automated email telling me they are going on to other candidates. Have a clue. They Probably sent me home giving me hope of being hired and scheduled a automated email at the same time. I don't think it is fair and do not like the way they do it. Why is someone ok after taking the online assessments and doing a telephone interview but very quickly gets discounted when doing a face to face interview. What are you guys looking for in a candidate.
