    Operations Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at DISH in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    1. SAT style on-line test. Math, verbal, social
    2. Phone Interview with HR
    3. Woderlink & Watson-Glasser test
    4. 1 on 1 and panel interviews
    5. Another 1 on1 interview with higher management
    Fairly routine, but thorough interview process. It did take a longer time than I would have preferred (3 months from first call to offer), but from what I have experienced and heard from others the time frame is somewhat normal for most companies these days. In my opinion the first SAT style assessment test was the most difficult.

    Final Interview With Operations Manager

    Once I had the in-person interview, I was told pending everything else I would be hired.

    Be professional, ask questions about how their office runs/benefits/hours.

    After the initial phone interview about 30 days had passed. They said they would call me about setting up the in person interview. I called them back and they had forgotten. If I had never called, I would have never gotten the job!

    Unix Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at DISH in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through dish.com career website. I received an email from the recruiter to schedule a phone interview with him. During the phone interview he said he would send me an assessment that would take an hour and that they send this to every person interviewing at Dish. The assessment consisted of math, reading comprehension, and social media. After going through this process, I spoke with the recruiter and scheduled a phone interview with the hiring manager, Senior IT Manager.

    During the phone interview with the Senior IT Manager, and in between his yawns, he asked me which position I was interviewing for (both points I’m making here were unprofessional). He asked me two questions: describe my work experience, describe a recent issue I had resolved. Then after the 10 minute interview (including zero technical questions) he asked if I had questions of him. I asked several and in between more of his yawns he answered them appropriately.
    I followed up with the recruiter that day thanking him and the hiring manager. He promptly replied saying he would have feedback soon. Nine days later I followed up with an email, to which the recruiter replied saying he would have feedback soon. Two additional phone calls received no response.

    Apparently they are uncomfortable letting applications know bad news. And, apparently I got lucky not receiving any feedback, as their company is poorly lead from the top (based on glassdoor ratings and other news articles). During my experience their poor leadership was demonstrated in their hiring process.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tulsa, OK
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tulsa, OK
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed 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 Questions
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. They offered to hire and stated pay rate. Take it or leave it.

    Satellite TV Technician/Installer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at DISH in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online via Dish's website, and received a phone call later that day for a phone interview and job description. After the phone interview, I was scheduled to go into the local office for a formal interview. My interview was 1:2, the operations manager based out of Texas and who I assume would have been my supervisor. The interview was laid back and the questions were straightforward, and I felt like I nailed it. I left the interview confident that I would receive a job offer the following week.
