    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EchoStar (Gilbert, AZ) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I don't remember the process of the interview. You'll be fine. They ask common question about experience and background. They also ask about if you will have any conflicts working either grave or day shift. Pretty, much open questions

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at EchoStar in June 2014.

    Interview

    They have different hiring process depending on the team. Hiring manager was very nice and pleasant. But the team was a little difficult, they giggled a lot among each other while screening the candidate. Seems like they were pretty busy with their day to day task as well while the Interview process was in progress

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing was difficult, they asked simple programming questions and sql queries.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at EchoStar in May 2014.

    Interview

    The first part is behavior questions and the second part is technical questions. For undergraduate, technical interview may not be needed. They will let you know if you will have a technical interview. For hardware group in Atlanta, they normally need 2 or 3 people for each term( summer, spring, fall). They prefer to have students do three terms but it is ok to do only one term.

    Call Center Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    This was a fairly easy interview, the management I met through the process were kind, but very distant. I understand why now. It is because the place is so difficult to work at with how the employees are treated that no one will close to anyone due to the constantly revolving door.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EchoStar.

    Interview

    Quick turnaround if the recruiting team and department managers like you experience and education. Very friendly group to speak with and they know what questions to ask to determine if you really know what you are talking about. The panel interview was a conference call but with a large corporation that was expected.

    Engineering Technician II Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Englewood, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at EchoStar (Englewood, CO).

    Interview

    Submit resume, application and personality test, wait 4 months, have a phone interview, wait 3 weeks. Go in for interview with manager and team members, and take mock test. Get told they want to hire you, but wait 2 weeks for HR to finalize it. Receive offer, reject it and wait 3 more weeks for counteroffer. It is a very convoluted process currently.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard questions, seemed to be pulled from some generic website minutes before the interview.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Always reject the first offer and counteroffer. They offer some piddly salary at first to see if you take it.
