    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at T-Mobile (Bellevue, WA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Worst process ever, interviews were unstructured and all over the map which felt un-natural and archaic. I still don't think anyone has a firm grasp on my skillset as all we did was walk through hypothetical scenarios and reviewed my resume. It's the lack of investment in the candidate experience that bothers me if they don't even give the front line teams the tools to interview and engage with engineers, do you really think they will invest in giving you the tools you need in your role? This company reeks of bad processes and lack of clarity about innovation.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at T-Mobile (Bellevue, WA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The Interview journey at T-Mobile is probably the most unnecessary process I've ever participated in. From too many people (5) interviewing (including different departments)/ making hiring decisions to the textbook questions that gave no indication of the job or the work environment. In addition, the hiring manager wasn't engaged in the interview and even pawning the phone interview off on a "team lead" from a different department. I can now see I dodged an "I hate my job" situation!

    Interview

    I was referred by a friend in marketing and spoke with the hiring manager a few days later. After that conversation went well, I had a quick HR screen and then final round interviews with several members of the team.

    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at T-Mobile (Bellevue, WA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Process took an incredible 3.5 months....not sure if they hire any one at that pace, I had 4 other offers within 2 weeks.

    First Interview 20-30 min with recruiter who was not technical at all
    2nd interview 2 weeks later: Hiring manager but still very casual, no coding involved
    3rd interview: Hiring manager who asked general technical questions but still did not dig very deep into my abilities, or if they were a fit for the role.
    4th interview: At this point it was clear from the hiring process that this is not a company that values innovation as they asked me to do a whiteboard coding problem which was the final straw for me. I ended up getting an offer but declined as the overall experience was not what you come to expect from a leading technology company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at T-Mobile (Bellevue, WA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Had several rounds to meet all of the management: 3 Principal Engineers, Sr. Manager, Director, VP of Data Network etc. Each interview went from 30-60 minutes. Had to take a half-day from my job. I was met in the lobby and escorted to each of the offices. Very pleasant experience - felt take care of. Overall, interviewers were nice and considerate - I wasn't just another number going through the system. I could really tell they all loved working for T-Mobile and emphasized the growth opportunities.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical behavioral questions - explain resume/projects/past work experience, background, how do you handle high stress environments, etc.

    TechX Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at T-Mobile (Bellevue, WA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was interviewed via an invitation only event held for graduating students of technology BS/BA/BAS degrees. The event was held more as a mixer where food and mingling kicked off the event. After the social period was finished, the room was divided into 2 sections. On one side were those interested in the summer and TechX internships, and the other had TechX Associate applicants. Theme switched to a speed dating-like theme where you found an open chair in front of a hiring manager or department you met during socialization. We were given 10 minutes per round and was asked to sit out every other round because of department-to-applicant ratios.

    Systems Design Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at T-Mobile (Bellevue, WA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied on the company site and got a call from a recruiter the next week to set up a panel phone interview with the hiring manager and three senior engineers on the team. The phone interview went well and I was then selected for the final interview stage which was to be held on site at the Bellevue location.

    This next stage comprised of a Skype/In-person interview with four senior and principal engineers on the team and another interview with three managers right after. I was in Texas on a project for my current job however and couldn't fly in so I interviewed at the Frisco office where two of the engineers on the team were based. I struggled to get the time off the project to go do the interview. I met with the engineers on time as scheduled but was told there was an emergency that came up and the managers couldn't make it to the interview.

    Here's where things went south. They rescheduled to the next day. Again, I struggled to set time aside for the Skype interview and got stood up. None of the managers showed up for the call. Two hours after our scheduled meeting I received a response from one of the administrative assistants saying they want to reschedule to the next week, NO APOLOGY. I reluctantly accepted seeing that I already gave up a lot of time for this, I thought I might as well see it through. The managers showed up late to the next call and didn't even offer an apology or explanation for their discourtesy the previous week. They ignored me and just had a conversation with themselves for the first ten minutes of the call. Mind you, I'm still traveling on a project for my current employer so my time is still very tight. I was told I would be contacted in three days to know whether I was selected or not, which I needed because I was fielding another offer from a separate company. They never got back to me. Fortunately, I had enough and accepted the other offer. I think I'll be better with Amazon anyway so no loss.

    Interview Questions

    Senior Marketing Automation Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at T-Mobile (Bellevue, WA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out via LinkedIn and we talked via telephone for about 20 minutes. She scheduled me for a phone interview with the hiring manager for the week after. I spoke with the hiring manager for about 25 minutes and he mostly sold me on the role. They then wanted to bring me in for an on-site, and that was scheduled for about 2 weeks out. I went in for an on-site and met with 3 people. It was fairly unorganized since the person I was supposed to meet first didn't come meet me on time and then we ran over late with other interviews. After the last interview with the hiring manager, he said that he wanted to have me meet more people on another day. Haven't heard back from them since! It's been about 2 months since the recruiter first reached out and 1 month since I met folks in person. Now I'm just curious to see how long it'll be if/when they ever reject me!

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at T-Mobile (Bellevue, WA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The HR contacted about 2-3 weeks after the career fair. There were two rounds of interview and the process was very streamlined and accommodating. I learned a lot about T-Mobile as much more than just a network provider through these interviews.

    Marketing Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at T-Mobile (Bellevue, WA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The entire process took three months and it was long and drawn out - for no apparent reason.

    HR set up an interview with me two days after I applied.

    Step 1 - phone interview with an internal recruiter within a week of applying. The recruiter was very nice and this call lasted around 45 minutes.

    Step 2 - phone interview with the hiring manager. This was a disaster. The manager started by saying - i know we were scheduled for 45 minutes but I have another call so I'm going to cut it short by 15 minutes. She spoke for roughly 25 of those 30 minutes she gave me. The other 5 minutes were spread out throughout those 30 minutes and she kept interrupting me. No way for her to know if I could be a good fit.

    *one month waiting game*

    Step 3: 7 in person interviews at the headquarters. At this point, it had been 6 weeks since I had applied. The offices in Factoria/Bellevue are really ugly and very dated. I was surprised the second I walked in because there was no where for me to sit and wait for the first interviewer. Their work space was even worse, the cubes are old and people are piled on top of each other. Everyone also complains about the parking - there isn't enough to accommodate their staff.

    *6 week waiting game*

    After those steps, the recruiter said they hadn't interviewed anyone else but had one person coming in. Then I got an email saying they were pursuing the other candidates. The candidates that don't exist?

    The process was brutal due to the waiting games and no real information shared with me throughout those 3 months.
