    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at U.S. Cellular (Chicago, IL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call from an in-house recruiter about a week later. After the initial phone screening, a phone interview was set up for later that day, and then the following day a formal interview was set up for the following week. In total, I spoke with three different people: an internal recruiter, the manager, and the head of the department.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at U.S. Cellular (Chicago, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed for an office position at US Cellular corporate. Consisted of a phone screen with Human Resources, three 30 minute back-to-back phone interviews, and a two hour on-site interview. I drove four hours to my interview and four hours back. Less than a week later I received an automated, canned rejection email. No call, no feedback, just "While your background is impressive, we have elected to move forward with other candidates at this time." I received no response to my request for feedback either. The team was friendly during the interviews but this was highly inconsiderate to the amount of time and effort I put in.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at U.S. Cellular (Chicago, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an in house recruiter to see if I was interested in the position. By the end of the week we had a phone screening. I had in person interviews the following week and was offered a position less than two weeks from initial contact. There was some confusion as I was required to formally complete an online application after the phone screen, which then initiated their automated HireVue online interview process, but I was cleared of this after speaking with the recruiter.

    Interview Questions

    • General background questions about my experience. How do I handle different types of conflict. What programs I am experienced with and how I currently utilize them.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at U.S. Cellular (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    It took probably 3 months. Many phone interviews, 3 hours onsite with three different people, had to take a day off of work. I never heard from them again, even after I asked about the progress. Very rude.

    Senior Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Schaumburg, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at U.S. Cellular (Schaumburg, IL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    My Interview was with three different managers that are meant to identify personality strengths as well as ability to follow instructions and focus. The questions were situational and didn't really have a right or wrong answer but instead you are rated on how you answer. I believe it helps eliminate people who avoid tough questions and highlights people who can answer honestly and under pressure.

    Interview Questions

    • They were random questions provided to each interviewer that follow a S.T.A.R format (Situation, Task, Approach & Result)   Answer Question

    Accounts Receivable Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at U.S. Cellular (Chicago, IL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for this position through the company website and a lady recruiter contacted me showing "VERY much interest" in interviewing me. But she wanted me to answer 5 questions through an email before setting up my interview with the hiring managers. One of the questions was about the salary range expected, to which I gave a range of expectation and clearly stated that despite stating my expectation, I am very open for negotiation. However, they only focused on the expected salary range that I quoted and the fact that they were not offering salary for this position in that quoted range. Based on this, they denied giving me an interview opportunity so that the "negotiation" which I was very open to do could ever happen.
    To make it worse, they also later sent me a "candidate experience survey" to know how my interviewing experience with them went.
    Which interviewing experience? I never got one – I paid for my honesty in answering their questions.
    RIDICULOUS.

    Purchasing Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at U.S. Cellular (Chicago, IL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed with 3 different people... I can understand the first two. The first person was the Manager of the Purchasing department and the second person was the supervisor of that department, but the third person was not even a part of that department/team. He didn't have an idea what the day to day functions were for the purchasing department. I never received a phone call or e-mail regarding feedback, I assumed I didn't get the position because I never received follow up. After checking the "application status" tool on the employers website, it is still listed as "contact for the initial interview" which was listed before the actual in person interview. Employer should send feedback to all who have interviewed for an actual position.

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral questions... how would you handle this situation? It seemed like all three asked the same set of behavioral questions back to back.   Answer Question

    Interview

    I found the job on one of the job boards and applied online. The same day that I applied I received a notification email that I was selected to move to the first step. The first step was a video interview, which I received a link for the next day. I didn't hear anything for six weeks. However, at the six week mark I was told that I would move on to the second round, which was a phone interview. After the phone interview two days later, I didn't hear anything for a week, then I got an in person interview and two weeks later I received an offer.
