    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EchoStar (American Fork, UT) in June 2016.

    Interview

    First there was an initial phone interview with an internal recruiter. She went through all of my work history asking the standard questions about how my experience it fit with the position I am being interviewed for. Usually there is another phone interview with the hiring manager however I was recommended to move on to a face to face which was scheduled with in a week of speaking with her. They had me take a personality test and a logic test. Nothing too hard however you need to dedicated at least 1 hour to finish it.

    The second interview had multiple rounds and lasted several hours. It started with a 15 minute interview with the hiring manager. Next was a panel interview with several team members. There were questions about my experience, how I would handle several situations and questions about me and my personality.

    I was called back to a third interview where I met several more members where it was more of the same. Questions about my experience, how I would handle several situations and questions about me and my personality. Lastly I met with an executive who asked me about how to create a project plan, then from that project plan how to estimate the tasks, then how to manage the project.

    Over all the interview process was not difficult however I get the feeling they are looking for people who are willing to work more than 40 hours, willing to work for below average pay, and accept below than average benefits. I did not get offered the the position because they have a policy that everyone in the interview process must unanimously choose the candidate.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you handle the situation when one executive has a project you are working on and they suddenly switch projects on you.   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EchoStar (Englewood, CO) in December 2015.

    Interview

    30 minute non-technical phone screen, then in-person. The in-person interview was conducted onsite. I showed up on time. They did not. Dipal, the QA manager showed up at the end of the interview. In the meantime, 2 other Indian QA engineers interviewed me. They asked questions which were relevant to the job & many that weren't. Afterwards, they explained they wanted to gauge where my limitations are. However, during the interview, they hammered me with questions that were far outside my level of expertise which made me very nervous to the point where I didn't answer questions I knew the answers to as well as I should have. Be prepared for this, especially if you are a U.S. citizen.
