    Retail Wireless Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at U.S. Cellular (Auburn, ME).

    Interview

    The interview process was pleasant and took about 1 month from interview to hire date. I met with the Sales and Store Management and was given a small tour of the facility. The interview was more of a test to see whether my personality was a fit rather than a skills test, as I had no previous sales experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at U.S. Cellular (Chicago, IL).

    I found the job on one of the job boards and applied online. The same day that I applied I received a notification email that I was selected to move to the first step. The first step was a video interview, which I received a link for the next day. I didn't hear anything for six weeks. However, at the six week mark I was told that I would move on to the second round, which was a phone interview. After the phone interview two days later, I didn't hear anything for a week, then I got an in person interview and two weeks later I received an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at U.S. Cellular in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and selected my salary range ($135+ annually) Received an email from recruiter. She asked for a good time to call. I took my time and was prepared for the interview. When she called, the call quality was terrible. She was working from home! And I had to dead with unprofessional approach to the interview. She asked about my salary. I told her. She said that this position pays $20k less. I was confused- why would she call me if it does not match my salary requirements? Also, it seems like US Cellular looking for people with good acting skills - they actually asking to record your video answering questions so they could look at it LATER. No respect to your time and you need to be an actor. The whole process was terrible - HR, who did not take time to review my requirements - HR worked from home and had terrible phone reception - Recruitment practice when they do not respect you: instead of talking to you, they record videos (and you never know if they actually will pay attention to your efforts) I won't be applying to this company and won't recommend it.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at U.S. Cellular in July 2015.

    Interview

    After the phone screen with the recruiter, I had a phone interview with the hiring manager. 2 minutes after the conversation started, he said that my resume suggested I wasn't a good fit for the role. He hadn't looked at my resume prior to the call; effectively ended up wasting our time. It was clear he was looking for something very specific as far as background and skills were concerned. Should not have bothered.
