    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at DISH.

    Interview Details

    I did not apply online but I knew someone who worked there so my resume made it around along with the internal reference. Response only took a few days then I had to set up an interview and take an aptitude test. This test included mostly logical questions and your familiarity with the internet. At the interview HR was helpful with any questions I had and the hiring manager was straight forward with what the position entailed and his expectations.

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ (US)
    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at DISH.

    Interview Details

    Multiple interviews that are very combative. They try to get you to lose your composure. I understand why they do it; Dish customers can be very abusive and you have to control your temper.

    One of the interviewers seemed quite racist and tried multiple times to make race baiting questions. The fact that I am caucasian made his efforts seem quite comical and unprofessional. Again, it seems to be part of the screening process because Dish employees are subjected to that behavior from their customers.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at DISH in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I got a call to set up a Skype interview for the next week. I got an email with an IQ type test to complete before the interview. The interview went well although since the position I had applied for was basically a resume dump for college students, I didn't know which job they were interviewing me for. The interview lasted about 30min and consisted of mainly preprepared questions as opposed to a conversation.

    Project Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at DISH.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, then had a preliminary telephone interview with a recruiter. When we got to the point to discuss salary requirements, we were $40,000 apart. I was shocked at the salary they were offering for a project manager position, especially since they were desiring a PM with their PMP certification.

    Operations Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, CO (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, CO (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at DISH in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for an Operations Analyst position in Englewood, CO and got a phone call the next week to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was mainly informational - the HR representative explained the position, asked me why I wanted to work at Dish, asked me if I would need a relocation package if hired (as I currently live on the East Coast with plans of relocating), and also answered any questions that I had. I expected to be asked about items on my resume/my past experience, but nothing of the sort was a topic of conversation.

    I heard back from the HR rep the next day, saying that they wanted to move forward and schedule a Skype interview. I was informed that there would be three interviews back-to-back, each ~30 minutes long. My Skype interviews are scheduled for tomorrow. To be honest, I am posting this review so that my glassdoor all-access pass is not shut off before I can use it for more research before my interview. If possible, I will revisit this post at a later date to give an update on how the rest of my experience goes.
