Director Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at T-Mobile.

Interview Details

Secured interview, met with hiring manager, then with team and CXO. isolated in conference room and managers cycle in and out. Final interview was with senior managers at VP and CXO level in their respective offices. Both were myopic, arrogant, rude. The CXO put me on hold while he answered phone calls for first 10min of interview then he appeared to have a very closed mind about listening to any point of view that did not support his position. He was all theory and no substance. The marketing VP had no creativity. His strategy consisted of lowering prices to grow, but he had no insight into his cost structure or margin- nor did he even seem to care. He displayed no creativity and basically wrote off any idea of differentiated services. He openly denigrated his VAS colleagues.

    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.

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed 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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed 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.
