I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DISH (Wilmington, NC) in June 2015.
After I submitted my application online I received an email requesting a telephone interview. The lady that conducted the telephone interview asked me questions such as whether or not I could lift up to 75 pounds, could use tools, was afraid of heights or if I was afraid of crawl spaces. This interview took about 15 minutes. When she was satisfied with my answers she set up a face to face interview with a supervisor in the Wilmington, NC office, a 2 hour ride from me. This was supposed to be a one time interview and all the rest of the interaction would be done local to my home location. The supervisor who interviewed me was 1/2 hour late but the interview itself only took about 20 minutes. After several questions, eventually I was asked about the 75 lb weight lifting. I got a vibe from him that he didn't think I could handle the ladder.

The process itself wasn't terrible - a few online assessments, and spoke with three different people in the office. I never received one bit of follow up with regards to this interview. A week and a half later, I received a call from a different recruiter at Dish than the one I had been working with, inviting me to interview with the company for a completely different position than the one I applied for (one which I had no interest in), with no mention as to my previous interview the week before! I chose not to continue with the process, as the whole experience left a rather bad taste in my mouth.

I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at DISH (Englewood, CO) in May 2015.
I applied for nearly 200 positions in Information Technology at DISH over the past 3 years. I've been invited to take assessments and I've done great on all of them. Although I've been perfectly qualified for all of the positions which I've applied to, I've only gotten 3 calls for interviews with HR...they've never went further. I've found the staff that work in HR at Dish very unprofessional and rather rude. They say that they will call you back at certain times, yet they never do. I feel that the reason that I'm not being considered is due to my age, which is over 50.

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at DISH (Englewood, CO) in May 2015.
Interviewed with 5 managers in 2 separate sessions over the course of 2 hours. This was followed by both wonderlic and logic tests. Several days later I was told they would 'like to move forward' in hiring me. The entire process from there was disjointed, disrespectful and unorganized. Over the course of two months the HR recruiter asked for, received & lost information on multiple occasions. After completing a drug test, background check, 3 full weeks passed before hearing the recruiter once again ask for more info that was already provided. Keep in mind I still had no official job offer at that point in time. Finally, at one point I told them I was moving on and so should they. A week after that conversation I get a call + an apology followed by an official job offer. I accepted. Just 2 days before my start date the same recruiter accuses me of lying about a job I held nearly 15 years ago. Understand that this job was not listed on my resume and is irrelevant to my experience, however I send information to confirm the job anyway. I am then contacted by her manager questioning my 'integrity'. Wow. I hung up after letting them know I had no further interest in their company. I somehow dodged the real bullet of actually working for these clowns. Applicants beware...this company is shady and run with ideas regarding employee treatment that were considered outdated two decades ago. All I can say is look at the turnover.

I applied online. I interviewed at DISH (Denver, CO).
Brief phone interview and then a group in office interview. After the group interview I was asked to take the assessments at the office which was very loud and distracting as their computers are located in the lobby and they were having technical difficulties that day. During the interview they asked ridiculous questions, like if you are the PM and your manager tells you that based on accident reports all drivers will now need to drive backwards at all times, what would you do?
