I did a 10 minute phone interview. They basically just described the compensation and hours. I was scheduled for an in person interview the following day. The woman I spoke with was very nice and answered all of my questions. She explained the commission tier very well and in a lot of detail.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at DISH (Phoenix, AZ) in August 2015.

    Interview

    When hr contacted me to do a phone interview they were polished and pite. During the interview I was told by the sales manager that this job would be a big grind and that I would be so tired. I found this to be presumptious and rude. I was also told that I would be expected to ask potential customers to pawn their possessions in order to pay the cable start up fees. Very rude and high pressure.

    Interview

    You have to Complete aptitude test for personality and knowledge on site. Wait 15 minutes for an interview. Started a few days later. I think they may have changed this since that time. I believe it has changed to an online assessment and then two in person interviews on the same day.

    Interview

    Dish seemed to be very quick on the turn around. I applied online, took the online assessment on a Friday and was in for a face to face interview by the following Tuesday. Interviewed with a very sharp young manager who told me the upside potential for the top 2% was a six figure income, which he had achieved in his first year.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at DISH (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    Multiple interviews that are very combative. They try to get you to lose your composure. I understand why they do it; Dish customers can be very abusive and you have to control your temper. One of the interviewers seemed quite racist and tried multiple times to make race baiting questions. The fact that I am caucasian made his efforts seem quite comical and unprofessional. Again, it seems to be part of the screening process because Dish employees are subjected to that behavior from their customers.

    Interview Questions

    • There were really no unexpected questions. It's the atmosphere of the interview that is quite unexpected.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    no negotiation phase

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at DISH (Denver, CO) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process is pretty easy. They are quick to hire as they have difficulty staffing due to their reputation. No HR involvement whatsoever, all interviews conducted by sales management. They make a decision very fast. I needed a job and they hired quickly. Overall the whole hiring process is pleasant but I wish I had not accepted.
