Director Interview

Director
Bellevue, WA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at T-Mobile in March 2011.

Interview Details – Several rounds of interviews starting with phone screen through panel. Be prepared for many internal acronyms, experience in disruptive tech, media or marketing may be helpful now. Brush up on John Legere's online presence, understand the "uncarrier" movement.

The process took a day - interviewed at T-Mobile in March 2009.

Interview Details – In a 30 minute phone screen the recruiter asked detailed questions about positions I'd held 15 years ago! A complete waste of my time. It seems like a completely unprofessional outfit - no emails saying sorry you were not a good fit etc. I can understand that they can't respond to everyone who applies, but if you've taken the time to talk to someone its professional courtesy to follow up.

By the time I got done talking to the recruiter I had no intention of joining them.

Director Interview

Director

I applied in-person and the process took 3 months - interviewed at T-Mobile.

Interview Details – I was able to identify the hiring manager in advance as I knew people at the company. I sent my CV directly to him plus went through the online portal (which was a strain).
Had a good first phone interview and then on-site interviews with several potential peers, the hiring manager and HR. Afterwards, T-Mobile did not inform me on the way forward actively, I was able to get information from HR but it was nearly impossible to get information from the hiring manager.

Interview Question – None - all very straight forward. Nothing you would prepare for.   Answer Question
