    Easy Interview

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at U.S. Cellular (Oklahoma City, OK) in June 2013.

    Interview

    You get a phone interview with HR. Basically ask you what you have done in certain situations. I was called by HR to set up a phone interview. after I passed that interview, I was contacted again to set up an in store interview for the store that I had applied for. The store interview was about 45 minutes long.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at U.S. Cellular.

    Interview

    The interview process was quick and simple, but they did not provide a realistic job preview. They told me what I wanted to hear...or what they wanted the job/company to be but wasn't. I didn't get to interview with the team members, which was a huge miss.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult questions. People at U.S. Cellular assume that anyone from the outside knows more than they do, and it's usually true because they don't challenge their employees to be experts in their field.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They would not negotiate on vacation time, but they increased the salary offer when asked.

    Retail Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at U.S. Cellular (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Long hiring process with many different steps. It can feel like you are getting the run around, but stick it out it is worth it. The interview process is a Performance Based Interview, meaning it is specific to what you HAVE done, not what you WOULD do (no hypotheticals here!)

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The original offer was very good, appropriate for my experience but this is not always the case. More recently it seems offers start lower so I would recommend seeing what you can get.

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at U.S. Cellular (Concord, NH) in December 2012.

    Fairly Lengthy Process to get hired, fill out an online application then talk to a regional manager in charge of hiring.

I waited about 3 weeks after that entire process to get my job offer and started roughly a week after that.

    Negotiation

    There is no very much room for negotiation, but the company in my experience has been very fair with pay.
