    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at AT&T (Miami, FL) in January 2010.

    Interview

    Hiring process is very long. Took 6 months to go through the hiring process. Your given tests that do not have anything to do about the job your applying for. Then you go through about 2 months of endless training. The do poll climbing first week then if you make it through that they do safety next. They say safety is always first, then why make somebody climb a poll with spikes on your ankels with out any safety training?

    Negotiation

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AT&T (Austin, TX) in August 2014.

    Interview

    While applying online, you are given a long personality questionnaire (with many questions about honesty, business ethics, morals, etc). If you answer all that correctly, you are asked to come in for a (group) skills test.

    The are very strict about you needing to be on time for the appointment ("one minute late and you'll be turned away"), yet after getting there on time, they make you wait for 30 minutes or more until they get their stuff together.

    The test covers basic technical thinking, logic, following instructions, etc.

    If you pass that test, you then go through a group "job overview" where they explain things like:

    You have to go through ten weeks of out-of-town training (Dallas, Houston, etc)
    If you are late for any reason by one minute more than once, then you'll probably be fired.
    For the first 6 months, you have to accept the schedule they give you - no sick days, work holidays, no change request, etc - no exceptions.

    After this, you are given a quick 4-question, one-on-one, interview.

    They ask how you handle irate customers, and how you overcome obstacles, etc

    If you do well in the interview, they contact you a few days later with a job offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Give an example where you face a challenge and explain how you overcame it   Answer Question

    Interview

    The hiring process was pretty good, got a phone call back in 4 days after applying for the job and received an offer about 3 days after that. The hiring manager was very friendly and asked basic questions that you would expect during an interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at AT&T (Conyers, GA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    I have been interviewed (and conducting interviews) for more than 15 yrs. While it is quite normal for a hiring manager to lay out some goals and expectations for the job, this interview was like no other I have been to. After arriving at the interview site, I was seated in a room with approximately 10 other applicants. Two hiring managers took turns berating and threatening the applicants assuring each of us that if we did not achieve each of the company's goals and expectations, we would be subject to severe disciplinary actions. They must have used the phrase "you will be terminated" 50 times. Next, they went on to describe the unrealistic goals and expectations. I would describe their overall attitude as condescending and callous. And all of this of course, for a salary comparable to what you could make 'stocking shelves' in a grocery store.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AT&T (Cleveland, OH) in January 2009.

    Interview

    You initially get called in to take two separate tests. You take these tests with a group of other people that are looking for the same job. The more technical and difficult one is given first. If you pass that test the second test is easy and just basic customer service and common sense type questions. After passing the two tests you talk to the HR guy and a manager. They ask all the same basic background and situational questions that are always asked in interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • The pre-test before the interview is the most difficult. It makes sure that you have very basic cabling skills and abilities.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They offer you a hourly rate based on experience and education. You either take the offer or refuse it. There is no negotiation.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at AT&T.

    Interview

    Took a long time to hear back about the job. 1st step is the assessment test, which was waved in my particular case. Then they bring you in for a Realistic Job Preview/Interview. Go to this in slacks, a button-up, and tie (equivalent for women). A lot of people showed up in jeans and I doubt they were taken seriously. The interview is a one-on-one with a 1st level Supervisor. They ask four questions and copy down your responses and their scoring for each response on a standardized form.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe how you would instruct a new customer on the features of U-verse.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Hourly wage is down in steps with step 9 being the highest someone can be hired at. They do give wage credit for college hours and military experience.
