    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Cablevision Systems.

    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 Interview Candidate in New Suffolk, NY
    Application Details

    I applied 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.

    I applied through other source - interviewed at Cablevision Systems in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Autocratic culture, mercurial. There were internal relationships that extended beyond professional work experience. Company was represented as supportive, but it became obvious that managers were not encouraged to use best professional judgment.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Cablevision Systems.

    Interview Details

    When i was hired I had to go through one interview, because I had a recommendation from an employee, and take a general knowledge test to make sure i could count and at least spell. From the moment I walked in there i was treated very kindly by syeeda (I believe that's how you spell her name) she is wonderful and really helped me calm down, because i was super nervous offered be coffee or water and what-not. The interview was very simple and straight forward. Once I found out I had the job I was sent to a temp agency for my probationary period( two months long in what they call nesting) and training ( training was one month long) after which they tell you if there going to keep you permanently or not.
