Application

I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at DISH (Littleton, CO).

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 Questions

  • sell me this pen. And what's your biggest weakness?   1 Answer

Negotiation

No negotiation. Set commission plan. You make $30 + per sale. You can end up making 60000+ per year.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at DISH in December 2014.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • If a customer that you qualified for the "right plan" told you she could afford it, but that the rest of the month was going to be tough, what would you do, or how would you respond?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – 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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed 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.

    There is no negotiation.....it's 10.00 an hour.....period!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at DISH.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • Are you willing to work 70 or 80 hours a week, nights and weekends.   1 Answer

    Reasons 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.

    Quick interview with a Sales Manager followed by an HR representative. I was then taken to a computer to which had a call center simulation program.
