    Senior Manager Interview

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

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at T-Mobile in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    Initially received a call from a recruiter. He asked several questions regarding my current position and why I thought T-Mobile was the right place for me. He also questioned my desire to move to the NorthWest. He later set up an initial phone interview with a manager. After that went well, I was asked to fly out to Seattle to interview in person. The interviewing process went very well. I met with several project managers, senior managers, directors, and the VP of the organization in a panel interview. I was pleased with how they conducted themselves and the interview process.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult questions were regarding the project management methodologies I had worked with prior. There were also questions on the PMBOK and how I have best used KPIs in the past.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Pleasant. The VP was able to explain to me what she could and could not do for me as a new employee. She allowed time for me to digest her offer and after reviewing it against one other offer I accepted hers.

    RF Engineering Manager Interview

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

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at T-Mobile in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    Recruiters were very professional and efficient. I was flown in from Europe for the interview and they had my offer ready before I had to leave two days later. They tend to do multiple interviews on the same day to avoid rounds of interviews - so I met with three or four people. Usually, the hiring manager will have two other people interview you first and if they don't feel you are a fit, the hiring manager will cut the interview short and you won't interview with their boss.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked some very technical questions but I think it was more to gauge my level of knowledge and how I would go about solving a problem.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was not able to negotiate salary or vacation time but I felt like they made me the best offer they could.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

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

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at T-Mobile in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    I heard about the position via my local unemployment office. The process was very straight forward and transparent. I completed my assessment and then went in for an actual in person interview. T-Mobile does indeed utilize the STAR interview method, make sure you practice the night before. The interview wasn't overly hard and I felt like I did a good job.

    Another thing to be aware of. I personally don't have good credit right now and was told by someone in one of my networking groups that T-Mobile won't hire people who don't have good credit. I asked the recruiter point-blank if this was true during my assessment. She told me that T-Mobile is only interested in things like prior work history and criminal records in regards to background checks. They also use Hire Right and it's pretty detailed.

    Interview Questions
    • The interviewer asked me several questions related to a time where I wasn't successful or failed at something. Make sure that you have a good work related story to tell here. The important thing is that you realize you aren't perfect and that you learned from the experience. The employer wants to hear that you are open to criticism and can grow.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They have a range that they can offer for the CSR I position, $11.20 - 13.52 an hour I believe. You can negotiate withing this range and it is based on experience.

    Strategic Account Manager Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at T-Mobile in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone screen followed by an in-person interview with the hiring manager. Both of these went great. I then interviewed in person with the group director who interrupted it by taking a call from his adult son, and then questioned me not having an MBA which was not a job requirement (he also does not have an MBA). Most of the people I met at T-Mobile were great, but this one person ruined by experience.
