    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at T-Mobile (Bothell, WA (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Standard - Although the interview was not for the job description that was posted by quite a few agencies. The job was for a CM but was inteviewed for the supervisory position over all the CM's. All considering I think it was a pretty laid back and smooth interview. At this point just waiting to hear back.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at T-Mobile (Bellevue, WA (US)).

    Interview

    I had this interview through a recruiter. Recruiter was able to get me an interview in two days. Hiring manager called me. The first question was from my resume, what did this application do? I was able to explain. What tools were you using there? I explained about Defect management tool, Pivotal, Rally and QC...he was impressed and said that they are also using Rally and QC. Overall it was more of a conversation than interview. I think it went well except one or two things. He asked me about different headers in HTML and function of F12 key which I was not sure about.... took a while and answered F12 is used to open developer's tool. After 4 days, I heard back from my recruiter that they want to call me for in person interview next week but next day my recruiter called me again and said that unfortunately they are not moving forward with me anymore!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at T-Mobile (Bellevue, WA (US)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Process started with application submission through their website. Called within a week for phone screen with sr recruiter. About half an hour on the phone going over my qualifications. Scheduled for phone screen with Hiring Manager. Again, about half an hour.

    That went well so interviewed 3 members of the team including hiring manager back to back, not panel style. I thought the interview went well and there were few, if any, typical interview type questions, felt more like a conversation. I have a hunch they have their mind made up after the phone screen+resume and the in person interview is just a chance to see if you fit in.

    Was called back about a week later and told that some with more experience was selected. Overall, however, a positive experience. They were extremely organized and professional throughout the process. I would not hesitate to apply again.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at T-Mobile (Bellevue, WA (US)).

    Interview

    Secured interview, met with hiring manager, then with team and CXO. isolated in conference room and managers cycle in and out. Final interview was with senior managers at VP and CXO level in their respective offices. Both were myopic, arrogant, rude. The CXO put me on hold while he answered phone calls for first 10min of interview then he appeared to have a very closed mind about listening to any point of view that did not support his position. He was all theory and no substance. The marketing VP had no creativity. His strategy consisted of lowering prices to grow, but he had no insight into his cost structure or margin- nor did he even seem to care. He displayed no creativity and basically wrote off any idea of differentiated services. He openly denigrated his VAS colleagues.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at T-Mobile (Bellevue, WA (US)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Phone Interview - HR (60 mins)
    Phone Interview - Hiring Manager (60-75 mins)
    Consecutive 1:1 Interviews - 5 Directors including Hiring Manager (60-70 mins each x 5)

    It was a travel interview and T-Mobile shouldered all the travel expenses, which was appreciated. Disappointed not to have gotten an offer though they said "it was close" it felt the hiring manager already had his decision made even before the interview - and just wanted to go through the process for validation. Met smart, motivated, and professional employees and it was overall a positive experience. Recruitment manager was very sincere and helpful throughout the process.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at T-Mobile (Bothell, WA (US)) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted by recruiter who asked me a basic questions and gave me details on the job. Then was setup for a phone screen by an FTE. It was very easy and basic questions about Microsoft Technologies and how I used them. Not a very in depth detailed technical screen like I though. I think it was because they were in a hurry to fill the seat and I had very good Powershell experience at Microsoft. I didn't even get interviewed by my the hiring manager. It was just one coworker which was very surprising.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at T-Mobile (Factoria, WA (US)) in April 2014.

    Interview

    I was screened twice over the phone, once by HR, then scheduled to screen over phone with the hiring manager, who was new to her position. 2-3 weeks later I met hiring manager in person, and then 2 weeks later, again, and 3 of her peers. That day I also met with the hiring manager's boss, and then again with the hiring manager who was new to the position.

    Although I had an extremely positive experience with the hiring manager (who described me a very talented and a potentially outstanding fit), and the senior recruiter, who described me as "the leading candidate", each peer could not have been more arrogant, each in their own way. To a person, they were late, barely apologetic if at all, and acted either inattentive, overly aggressive, dismissive of my answers or simply disinterested, as if they had better things to do.

    I can understand their being busy and having to re-schedule on the fly--which happened several times while I was there--but if I had to choose a few words to describe all three of the "peer" group, it would be arrogant, disrespectful and dismissive.

    To the point of the interview loop with peers, HR had been helpful, professional and very upbeat. However, when HR called me to tell me the team determined "I wouldn't be a fit" the only answer I was given was that "I wasn't aggressive enough" to which I responded, "I was direct, confident in my answers (see below) and respectful - I didn't want to come across as being arrogant." To my shock, the HR person said, "Sometimes arrogance goes a long way here."

    I knew in advance that the issue of arrogance was present especially on the marketing team, and first-hand knowledge from friends who had worked there and left for that very reason, was confirmed. Perhaps with new leadership at the mid level, some of this may change.

    But if that's the way "senior" professionals treat candidates, I can only imagine how they treat people who work there.

    My advice is to stay away if how you're treated means anything to you.

    Interview Questions

    • One member of the peer group asked me, "If your budget were $xx, how would you spend it?" I gave some very broad brushstrokes said asked, "what are your objectives?" and by what measure would you determine the success of the spend?" He was visibly agitated by my answer and without responding to my question, essentially forced me to make a guess and then immediately made it clear he disagreed. He was downright rude.   2 Answers
