    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at DIRECTV in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial interview went great and I felt I had a good chance at the position... I completed the drug test and was then contacted to do a physical test well the day of the physical test I was contacted by the backgrounds investigator for some information he ask that I fax over some paperwork regarding the issue on hand so I did and then I completed the physical test... the next day I was contacted again and was informed that I was ineligible for the position... So I went through the entire process and spent money on faxing papers when the whole time he could have advised me of that before I continued on to the physical and not have to fax any paperwork...A complete waste of time and I did not receive any form of reimbursement on my money spent on faxes by his request.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at DIRECTV.

    Interview Details

    Got lead from staffing agency. Had phone interview with hiring manager. Company rejected application based upon factors that did NOT come up during interview. Hiring manager seem inexperienced in the field but talked about a lot of current buzzwords in the trade. Hiring manager also seemed to be grasping for straws as far as what he was looking for. Hiring manager took weeks to give feedback to staffing agency.

    Interview Questions
    • It was difficult to figure out what the hiring manager was looking for and/or wanted. We went from one topic of the next with seemingly little organization or structure. I asked the interviewer several questions which he refused to answer.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at DIRECTV.

    Interview Details

    Very straightforward process. I applied, got a call a few weeks later and set up a phone interview. The recruiter was cordial and professional. She asked some difficult questions. I honestly felt I could have done much better, but I'm not one to make excuses. If I could do it again, I would have paid more attention to the exact words I used on me resume.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at DIRECTV in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    This is the worst place to interview at. The managers are eager to say negative things upfront while interviewing therefore it is hard to keep a positive face while interviewing.

    Interview Questions
    • Ask questions that have no relevance to the job. If you had a genie, what would you ask for? I honestly had to stare at him to compose myself if he meant work related or work   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at DIRECTV.

    Interview Details

    There were a group interview with three people. The questions were not very difficult. There were no technical questions. They asked mostly about the stuff on my resume. They seemed to be not very serious. In the end, they asked some random questions to see how I though, questions such as list all the possible uses of a paper clip that you can think of. They never replied emails afterwards, nit even at least bother to tell you that you did not get the offer. Company structure is not clear.
