    Business Analyst Interview

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

    Application

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

    Interview

    This process was very strange. I was contacted by a recruiter and scheduled a phone interview. I was asked very typical interview questions and arranged another interview with a hiring manager. After nearly a week I was contacted by a different recruiter about the same role and scheduled a time to talk with him. During this interview I was asked all the same questions. I told this to the recruiter and he didn't really respond. After this interview, I had a Skype interview with a hiring manager that went very well. Next, I was flown out to the HQ where I was told I would be meeting with a few people. When I arrived I met with the recruiter I had been in contact with and I took two assessment tests on a computer. These were not terribly difficult. Following this, I met with the hiring manager I had the Skype interview with. Our conversation was strange because he didn't seem to remember talking just days before. He asked me very similar questions and had trouble focusing. He looked visibly tired and was sweating. I made the best of it and met with another manager that was no longer in the department. We had a good conversation and I enjoyed the time I spent with him. Unfortunately, he also asked the same questions that I received over and over again (including a strengths and weakness question). At this point I was bored and only wanted to have a genuine conversation with anyone passionate about their job or the company. Subsequently, I was told that I may or may not be meeting with a director that was in a meeting. I waited around for about 20 minutes and then was told she was stuck in a meeting. Finally, the recruiter directed me out of the office and asked me to send him to send him my travel expenses. I did this a few days later and have never received a check in the mail.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Just did the first part that is an informal phone interview followed by assessment test. The test required about 70 min. Everything is timed. The first part of the test were math and logic questions 3m for each question. Same thing for the second part that was reading and understanding. The third and last part were tech 14min for 40 questions. After that there will be another phone interview to decide if they want to meet face to face. So it is a 4 part process.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DISH (Denver, CO) in October 2016.

    I had one phone screen with the recruiter and then a 1 hour phone interview with the hiring manager. I was then flown out to Denver for a round of in-person interviews. I met with 4 people for 30 minutes each and had to take 1 hour of online tests. Everyone was nice, pleasant, and seemed to have great things to say about Sling. I received an update from the recruiter the Monday after my interview telling me that the team was moving forward with me. It was a very quick and pleasant process overall.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at DISH (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    I applied to DISH online. I received a call from a company recruiter within a week to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was brief and consisted of a few questions about the experience on my resume, described the job and asked if I still wanted to pursue the position. The recruiter then directed me to take an online exam.

    After the online exam, I emailed the recruiter to let them know I'd completed it. I never received a response. I consider that entirely unprofessional. At the very least, a short form email with "We've decided no to continue with you as a candidate" is not too much to ask.

    However, given my continued research of DISH's culture and business practices - and now this experience - I can't say I'm brokenhearted to not be going forward with the process.
