    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DISH (Denver, CO) in November 2017.

    Interview

    This process was doomed from the start. I applied on their website for a Full Stack Developer position. I received an email from their recruiter to set up a phone screen for the Senior Java Engineer position (which I did not apply for). During the phone screen, I told the recruiter that I did not apply for that role which she understood. She asked typical background information and then told me to take their questionnaire test. The questionnaire was divided into 3 sections (math, english, technical). After this I set up the third stage which was a WebEx technical interview. The day leading up to the technical interview, I received 2 rejection emails (one for a Software Engineer II position and the other for a Software Engineer I position). I still did the WebEx tech interview which was a standard tech interview. After this step, I received a rejection email for the Senior Java Engineer role. At this point, I didn't even bother to try and correct them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at DISH (Englewood, CO).

    Interview

    I had an initial phone interview (followed by some on-line testing) followed by an in-person interview (again, followed by some silly on-site testing) a few weeks later and then another phone interview w/ another manager who wasn't able to join the in-person interview. HR/Recruiter was very nice and communicated well UNTIL following the in-person interview. In fact, over the next month following my interview, there was no-follow up at all, nor would he/she return my emails. Then, almost 2 months later, I get the standard "after careful consideration, we have decided to move forward with another candidate..." email. I was very put off that after ALL the testing and time I put into the process, that they went cold in communicating; I deserved better.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at DISH (Phoenix, AZ) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. Call/Email same day from Dish Recruiter to do 15 minute phone interview. Set up time for next day. Interview over the phone is background and why applying for the job questions. Appointment set up for following day to interview. Greeted by person - extreme casual dress code (hoodie type top and jeans), but I was asked to "dress to impress". Taken on tour of the floor and various areas including a wall showing top performers on the left side and bad performers on the right side. Noticed the person had trouble determining what to call the "right side" people. Interview was background first, talk about experience, then several STAR based situational management questions. Then led out of the building and told to expect to hear within a week to two weeks.
