Very Easy Interview

Satellite TV Technician/Installer Interview

Satellite TV Technician/Installer

I interviewed at DISH in May 2014.

Interview Details – Took an easy online assessment that took nearly a hour to complete. Mainly included basic math problems and a personality test. It took 3 days for them to email me about moving on with other candidates. There was really nothing that would really disqualify me except the $15/hr requirement I requested because I aced the assessments. If they have a strict salary requirement, they should just post it for the sake of the company's time and the applicants'. Don't make applicants take the assessment if they don't meet salary requirements. It's a waste of everybody's time.

Senior Operations Analysis Manager Interview

Senior Operations Analysis Manager

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at DISH in April 2012.

Interview Details – Got a call from recruiter over a month and a half after I applied online. Forgot I even applied for the position it was so long ago. The test is cake but they make it sound like you are splitting the atom.

Interview Question – One executive asked what the biggest risk in hiring me would be. She was by far the brightest person I interacted with at the company. Other than that, pretty basic, stock questions with little insight from interviewer.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – If they offer you a position, don't take it. Avoid this company like the plaque.

Senior Analyst Developer Interview

Senior Analyst Developer
Englewood, CO

I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at DISH in February 2010.

Interview Details – Do your research on the company. Most managers will ask you what you know about DISH. Be prepared to talk about how you have adjusted to shifting priorities and changing demands. We are a fast-moving company that expects its workforce to blaze trails. You will have to take technical and IQ assessments. Take the tests and don't stress about them. They are not pass/fail, only supplemental tools for management and HR to use in making hiring decisions.

Interview Question – Why should I hire you? It seems simple, but can be a hard one to answer.   View Answer

Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative
Tulsa, OK

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at DISH.

Interview Details – Computer tested and interviewed in same day at location. Many people were hired because they were breathing and did not drool on the table. Many people washed out during the training phase. These people took away from the training time because the instructor had to continually go over subjects multiple times not leaving enough time in the day to fully train the new employees to their most potential.

Interview Question – All questions were typical for a call center.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. They offered to hire and stated pay rate. Take it or leave it.
