    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    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

    Operations Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, CO

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at DISH (Englewood, CO) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Process took 4+ weeks.

    I applied online and got contacted by a recruiter almost immediately. Wasn't even a phone interview. He asked me about myself and then proceeded to talk about the job description and what the job responsibilities entailed. I seemed intrigued so I continued. He told me I had to do an assessment online which took about 2 hours and if I passed, we would set up an interview.

    I ended up passing and we set up an interview a week later. I get to the company's building and I had to take ANOTHER assessment which was something like 55 questions in 2 minutes and you got penalized for wrong answers. I rushed through it all then got to interview.

    I interviewed with 5 people; 2 manager, 2 high ups; and one supervisor all in the same interview! It look about an hour to do. One supervisor was unavailable. Questions asked were along the lines of my resume and work experience. Thought the interview went really well.

    About a week later, I get a call from the recruiter saying the supervisor that was unavailable would like to interview with me. I was told that it would just be one person and myself, repeatedly. He told me over the phone, when we met, and right before the interview. The interview started and 2 supervisors came in and the recruiter decided to sit in with us. The questions were tougher and very specific. If you answered in a general term, they would ask you for specific examples and then with follow up questions to that.

    I thought it went well. Recruiter called a week later letting me know they would like to move forward with me. I had to sign a waiver for a background check and get a drug test. They also called my references and made sure they spoke with them. I did all of what they asked.

    One week passes, nothing.

    Another week passes. nothing. (mind you, i've been calling the recruiter and asking what was going on)

    The next week I get a phone call from the recruiter saying they are not going to move forward with me. Thanks a lot "Dish". Worst hiring process ever.

    This is how my Process played out ( i think)

    Initial Phone Interview
    In person Interview with Operations Manager
    Drug Test
    Final Interview With Operations Manager

    Once I had the in-person interview, I was told pending everything else I would be hired.

    Be professional, ask questions about how their office runs/benefits/hours.

    After the initial phone interview about 30 days had passed. They said they would call me about setting up the in person interview. I called them back and they had forgotten. If I had never called, I would have never gotten the job!
