Just very simply background questions about yourself, your experiences etc. The second round phone interview will come from engineer. You will be asked very foundamental technical questions. The third round will be on-site. A group of engineers will interview you technical stuff.

    The process took a day - interviewed at EchoStar in November 2008.

    Interview Details

    I was called for an on-site interview. I was interviewed by 2 engineers for the Software Engineering position. I was asked some puzzle type question, eg. If there are 13 identical looking balls, and all except for one weigh the same, how will you tell which one? I was also asked some basic C programming questions. Mostly data structures and thread related.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at EchoStar in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview for 40 minutes, online IQ/behavior test a few days later. On-site interview for 4 hours a month later. Met with 2 managers and 2 engineers. Asked about C, Linux, Satcom. They showed me some C programs and asked me what was wrong with it, and then written C test. The managers and engineers seem nice to work with. HR is unreasonable. Got the offer the next day. The whole recruiting process looks like they are doing me a favor to make me work there.

    Reasons for Declining

    This company is cheap even on little things. The recruiter is not willing to make any concessions. Offer is below par. Health insurance is extremely bad. No sign-on and relocation is only 3000$ lump-sum.

    The process took a day - interviewed at EchoStar in August 2008.

    Interview Details

    The questions were mainly on C programming language, general knowledge of RTOS, mutexes and semaphores. Most typical question is to write a function in C that would print out the number from 50 to 1. The interview was in English, but for those who don't speak English well the interviewers will switch to Russian. In general - quite an easy interview if coming prepared.

    Negotiation Details
    There is not much of negotiation. Everyone is offered the same salary and most everyone excepts the offer. I have no knowledge of cases when a candidate was offered not a standard salary rate.
