    Direct Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Cablevision Systems in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I would say to is quite difficult to get into this company. I entered via a referral and usually referrals are the only way people are hired. company has lots of open houses advertised via word of mouth through current employees. You might want to flaunt your ability to build rapport a bit with your interviewer. That should do the job if you have qualified experience.

    It was a very long process it took over 6 months to get hired. I wish that they would speed up the process so they may get more people in faster. Overall, the questions were simple and not too difficult. I would just research the company first before going on an interview.

    Anonymous Employee in New Suffolk, NY
    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Cablevision Systems in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    All company information is available to the interviewer, so most questions relate to a 'what would you do if' or ' how would you handle'. I have always been confident in presentation due to honesty and knowing my own qualifications. Understanding the position is (hopefully) a long commitment, so you want an environment that is not only challenging but secure in knowing that your work is noticed and the position is satisfying.

    Interview Questions
    • Would you be willing to relocate or are you available for weekly flexible shifts.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Way low salary offer. Accepting the fact that a new salary won't always be met by having a previous 20+ year career at a prior company and position but a competitive offer or an open discussion should be made.
