AT&T Interview Questions

31 AT&T Interview Questions
Question 1 of 31
At AT&T we seek to hire those who are collaborative by nature. How do you get along in a team based environment?
How to Answer
The interviewer would like for you to demonstrate that you can work well in a team-based and collaborative environment. Use a real-life example from a time when you have worked in a team based environment.

Answer Example
"I love working in a team-based environment. I enjoy bouncing ideas off others and the camaraderie that comes with being part of a high functioning team. As a Telecommunications Specialist, there are many times where I'm required to work alone, troubleshooting a technical problem off-site. I've received feedback from previous managers who have noted I'm particularly malleable and can work well independently and as part of a team."
Answer Example
"Whether I am doing an independent project, or working in a team environment, I always give my best. I enjoy the camaraderie of working in a team, but I can be successful working autonomously as well. I love the focus AT&T seems to place on working collaboratively, exemplified by the motto, 'imagine what we can do together.'"

Question 2 of 31
AT&T is very excited about its involvement in technology like AR and VR changing the health care landscape. What do you know about the potential in this area?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
This is a great opportunity to emphasize your knowledge of both AT&T and also the latest developments across the telecommunications industry. Make sure to convey your excitement about being on the cutting edge of these innovations.

Answer Example
"VR and AR are such exciting developments in the telecommunications industry right now - and I love that AT&T is on the forefront of this technology. Not just because it's cool, but because AT&T is finding powerful ways to harness these developments in order to make people's lives better in a meaningful way. The operating room of the future uses VR to see inside the patient and navigate precisely without incisions. By integrating with AI, physicians can draw on data from thousands of past procedures to identify best practices and avoid potential errors during surgery. It's truly amazing, and I'd love to be a part of it."
Answer Example
"The application of new technologies to health care is fascinating to me and represents one of the most meaningful ways that technology can improve lives. I think there's a tremendous sense of potential here -imagine being able to remotely monitor a surgical procedure for your loved one, all while the physician uses VR to see inside the patient without an incision. Though that particular application of VR/AI isn't a reality yet, I'd love to be part of a company that works with health care clients to help make that a reality."

Question 3 of 31
What type of work environment do you dislike working in?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
Everyone will have particular triggers that cause them to feel dissatisfaction on the job. Talk to the interviewer about any factors that may deflate or discourage you in the workplace, along with how you might overcome them.

Answer Example
"I have felt dissatisfaction on the job when I am not feeling heard or when there is a lack of respect among team members. I work best in more harmonious situations where there is little drama or gossip, and where people are aligned behind common goals. From what I understand, AT&T fosters a respectful, inclusive and collaborative workplace, so that seems like a very good sign. How would you best describe the environment here?"
Answer Example
"I have felt dissatisfied on the job when I feel that I am undervalued as someone who has good ideas and can improve the customer experience. Some employers don't necessarily value the thoughts and experience of front-line employees or empower them to solve problems to the benefit of customers. I'm very pleased with what I've learned about AT&T's culture of supporting employees, and I believe that will help me be engaged and successful here."

Question 4 of 31
The environment is fast-paced and challenging at AT&T. How do you determine priorities when you have multiple projects due?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
When you feel torn between multiple projects or tasks, how do you decide which one needs your attention the most? Assure the interviewer that you can be diligent when it comes to assessing your priorities.

Answer Example
"First and foremost, I will prioritize projects that most closely align with the company's strategic goals and have the highest potential to affect the company's bottom line. In addition, I often determine which projects require my attention by the number of hours we are behind and then the project size. I am comfortable delegating tasks when needed, but I am also aware that these times will require an additional commitment of hours from me. Never have I under delivered on a deadline."
Answer Example
"Assuming that the projects have different stakeholders, I interview each to determine the value of increased productivity, morale or revenue, decreased costs and the overall impact. Above all, I talk to each stakeholder about the strategic value of the particular project so we can, together, identify the work most likely to make a major difference toward the company achieving its goals and mission."

Question 5 of 31
When have you worked among a diverse group of people?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
Are you accustomed to working with a very large or diverse team of individuals? Assure the interviewer that you can handle an environment that offers diversity.

Answer Example
"I have worked with diverse groups of people most of my career. I am most comfortable, and happy, in this type of environment because it offers a great learning opportunity. Overall, I'm accustomed to being around people who aren't exactly like me, and I've been able to learn from exposure to a lot of different perspectives. One of the things I was most impressed by when researching AT&T was its commitment to diversity and inclusion."
Answer Example
"In my current company, we have a very diverse group of people that range in age, race, experience, gender and more. I embrace it fully. I believe that when your teams reflect the diversity of your customers, that enables stronger discussions, better insights and breakthrough solutions. I'm encouraged that AT&T is committed to helping all employees reach their full career potential."

About Our Interview Questions

Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.

Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.

The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
