    International Programming Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DISH (Englewood, CO) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Be prepared to jump through many hoops! Phone screen with a recruiter, online evaluation (math, reading comprehension, knowledge of technical web terms), phone interview with the hiring manager, in person online evaluation (logical, analytical), in person interview with the hiring manager (because 1 interview with them isn't enough), in person interview with a team member, in person interview with VP. A week after the "final" interview (evidently after that they would request transcripts and references for every job you have held), I hadn't heard anything so emailed the hiring manager and received an email from the recruiter saying they were pursuing other candidates. Pursuing multiple candidates for one position after the "final" interview? Sounds like they can't trust their own long process to find the correct person. Each time you think you are at the end, there is one more step.

    Content Acquisition Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DISH (Denver, CO) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Incredibly poor.
    I interviewed for two positions: International Programming Specialist at Sling TV and Content Acquisition Specialist at Dish.

    All interviews took place over the phone. The Sling HR representative rescheduled our phone call TWICE, both times minutes before (very unprofessional), and she never really seemed to understand the inconvenience she was causing. Although I kept moving forward in the process, the people interviewing me made me feel as though I was incredibly undeserving of their time, or for that matter, of this job. They kept bringing attention to my lack of 'full-time employment' during the period since I had graduated with my Masters in Entertainment Business in December (during which time I have had temporary stints with major agencies and production companies in the Los Angeles entertainment industry). They kept asking me why I hadn't been able to attain a full-time job (as though I wasn't even trying to). 1. The Los Angeles industry is exponentially more difficult to attain jobs in than Denver. 2. I was working three jobs (averaging over 70+ hours a week). I wasn't slacking. I was hustling.

    My final interview for the Sling position was with a VP. Her Skype audio was horrible (not to mention she had a very strong accent). Also her camera was awkwardly placed at a really high angle (on top of a elevated computer screen) so I could not even see her face, nor did she look directly at me. She didn't ask me at all about my previous positions, or about what I knew about Dish and the television industry, but just grilled me about why I was not employed full-time and why I was applying to a job in Denver. If she had simply looked at my application, she would know I was originally from Denver.

    My final interview (for the Dish position) was scheduled two weeks in advance (still a phone call). Ironically, I flew back to Denver that day to visit family, and took a 6 AM flight to ensure that I was not at the airport, but was at home in a quiet place for the interview. But when I was called, I could hardly hear the exec because HE WAS AT THE AIRPORT. I could hardly hear him, and our interview kept being interrupted by PA announcements.

    I had previously interviewed with NBC, Amazon, Hulu, along with many more companies in LA and I was NEVER treated nearly as bad as at Dish.. At the other companies, the HR reps had fully reviewed my credentials and were able to have in-depth conversations with me.

    Admittedly I don't think I was a perfect fit for either positions or the teams which were involved. But Dish truly needs to value their applicant's time as well as their previous experiences. My experience with Dish was absolutely disgraceful, and I understand why this company has such a horrible reputation.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at DISH in March 2016.

    Interview

    I became connected through a recruiter, the first step involved a typical phone interview where she went over the role and asked why I was interested in the position. The second step involved a SAT math and verbal test. I have not used any math since High School so I did not make it on to the in person interview.

    Programming Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DISH.

    Interview

    Standard process, serious thorough interview. Formal note taking and rounds with 5 members of the team meant multiple conversations similar in nature one after another. Supervisor appeared overwhelmed, stressed and exhausted at the start of the interview. Made me question work atmosphere. Curiously formal process.

    Interview Questions

    • Thorough many questions related to whether or not I would be looking for advancement within the company. Wasn't sure which way to play that. Committed for the short term, but long term aspirations? or state that I wouldn't be looking to work my way up the ladder to show loyalty? Or some combo? didn't get the job, so never found out which answer they were seeking.   Answer Question
