    Pros

    Innovative, hard working and fast-paced. That is how I would sum up my experience at Brightstar Corp thus far. Co-workers are a real treat!

    Cons

    Redundancy (which I view as opportunity for improvement) and communication (find this struggle at many companies)

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Brightstar.

    Interview

    Typical process, Phone, Skye, P2P. For a global company, I would expect their HR department to be more seasoned. They found an issue with my application, and when I was able to send supporting data that corrected the issue, they did not acknowledge it, nor did they even try to discuss with me the supporting documentation. One HR person actually called me a Liar! This was after I received an offer for employment. Totally unprofessional, and sad for a any company. I would be very cautious before looking at a position at Brightstar.

    Interview Questions

    • Most were very easy. One stand out "How do you make friends?"   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The HR department REFUSED to discuss a perceived error on my application, after I submitted supporting documentation showing otherwise.
