Operations Specialist Interview

Operations Specialist
Englewood, CO

I applied online - interviewed at EchoStar in July 2011.

Interview Details – I took a test online as part of the application process, before being called for the interview. The test is a weed out. After being called to interview, I went in and there was an onsite test to check basic abilities, it was multiple choice and timed. I interviewed with 3 people all asking questions. One person was the supervisor that I'd be working under. Then, I was told that they would contact me with a decision. I got a call within a week or two.

Interview Question – It's been a long time, so I don't remember many specific questions that they ask. I seem to remember that there were general questions about my work history and being asked to describe how I had handled prior work issues.   Answer Question

Call Center Agent Interview

Call Center Agent
Denver, CO

I applied online and interviewed at EchoStar.

Interview Details – This was a fairly easy interview, the management I met through the process were kind, but very distant. I understand why now. It is because the place is so difficult to work at with how the employees are treated that no one will close to anyone due to the constantly revolving door.

Interview Question – What is the one thing I find as a fault.   Answer Question

Lead Engineering Technician Interview

Lead Engineering Technician

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at EchoStar.

Interview Details – Quick turnaround if the recruiting team and department managers like you experience and education. Very friendly group to speak with and they know what questions to ask to determine if you really know what you are talking about. The panel interview was a conference call but with a large corporation that was expected.

Hardware Intern Interview

Hardware Intern
Atlanta, GA

I interviewed at EchoStar in March 2011.

Interview Details – The first round of interviews were on the college campus. This interview took about 15 minutes and I was given a basic explanation of some of the design work that was done in Echostar and was asked some basic questions about my resume. About 2 weeks later I was asked to visit their company, which is also where the 2nd round of interview took place. This time I was also asked mostly questions regarding my resume. They approached me with an offer about a month after the interviews.

Interview Question – They asked me to recall a few specific details regarding a project I had completed several years back.   Answer Question
