Call Center Agent Interview

Anonymous Employee
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

Anonymous Employee

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

Anonymous Employee
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

Engineering Technician II Interview

Engineering Technician II
Englewood, CO

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 8 months - interviewed at EchoStar.

Interview Details – Submit resume, application and personality test, wait 4 months, have a phone interview, wait 3 weeks. Go in for interview with manager and team members, and take mock test. Get told they want to hire you, but wait 2 weeks for HR to finalize it. Receive offer, reject it and wait 3 more weeks for counteroffer. It is a very convoluted process currently.

Interview Question – Standard questions, seemed to be pulled from some generic website minutes before the interview.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Always reject the first offer and counteroffer. They offer some piddly salary at first to see if you take it.
