    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at EchoStar in December 2014.

    Interview

    Received a very short call from hr asking very basic questions, no technical questions and I doubt the interviewer would have understood anything anyways. I assume she was looking for keywords, was told I would get a call back the next week and never heard from them again. I am appalled at how unprofessional the whole thing was, seriously the least they could at least provide a polite rejection! I will not be applying to this company again.

    Interview

    as far as I know, basically there will be at least 3 round of interviews. In the first round, you will be interviewed by HR. 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.

    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

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at EchoStar in October 2011.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    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.

    Application

    The process took a dayinterviewed at EchoStar (Kharkiv (Ukraine)) in August 2008.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you know about RTOS?   1 Answer
    • Difference between mutexes and semaphores? When and why are they used?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    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.
