I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at T-Mobile in May 2008.
Interview Details – Every interview is conducted using the STAR format, which is a behavioral based question format. ST = the situation/task, A = the action you took, and R = the result or outcome. They want you to be very specific and do not generalize - pick a specific scenario from your past and cover all 3 of the above topics. The inability to follow the guidelines is an easy way to weed out candidates.
This is how I was interviewed and it was very easy once I understood what they were looking for. The saying is, "past behavior predicts future performance". They want to know what you did in the past because you will probably do the same thing in the future, so be careful about the scenarios you choose to include.

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at T-Mobile in November 2010.
Interview Details – Initial phone interview went well. Meeting with recruiter started off well, but slowly went off the cliff. Numerous questions were asked about handling employee situations in a retail environment (which I had not been a part of since college--20 yrs. ago) Think they were looking for someone closer to the age of what is perceived to be their target smart phone client. Mentioned that I use Mac & PC, as well as Blackberry, and was also T-Mobile client. Got the don't call us we'll call you handshake and I knew nothing would become of it. Whenever, I visit a T-Mobile store to check on new phones or accessories, I look at how the stores are run and see why they are being purchased by AT&T.

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at T-Mobile in March 2009.
Interview Details – The interview process was longer than expected to due multiple locations opening within the time that I applied. Communication was somewhat lacking with almost a week going by without contact for the next step. Their background check was very thorough, going all the way back to High School Records.

Main reasons for declining were lack of up-front communication and relationship building compared to alternate employers for a management position and lack consistant folowup during process, and work schedule.
