    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Comcast.

    Interview Details

    The process starts with a personality test, then a phone interview. If you pass this point you will have a pre interview and a final interview. It is a long and poorly executed process.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Comcast.

    Interview Details

    Submitted application and was called within a week for a phone interview. Was given a test to take and submit prior to the phone interview. After phone interview, they scheduled an in person interview. In person interview had two people, supervisors, ask questions about sales experience, resume, sales process, and mock sale on the spot. Interview lasted about 1 and one-half hours. Was told someone would get back to me. A few days later, HR called and offered the job.

    Interview Questions
    • Explain the sales process. What is the most important part of the sales process. Why? What specific sales experience do you have? Quantify the results of that experience. Sell me right now, on the spot. Imagine your are approaching someone's home, and sell them services.   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Comcast in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online initially. Long application process. After applying there was an hour long online assessment. It was all personality type questions, pretty standard. Got a call a few days later from a corporate recruiter and set up an over the phone interview. Phone interview was pretty standard. Took about 45 minutes. Got a call a few days later to come in for a personal interview. Interview lasted about an hour. Got a rejection email over a month later. I emailed the interviewer for feedback on the rejection because I thought it went quite well. Never got a response.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Comcast in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    You either contact the team manager him/herself, or you are hired through a company such as Northwest staffing. My initial job started with being contacted by the team manager himself, and it worked out pretty well. I then move on to retail where I was hired through Northwest staffing. I was tested on my ability to Open, converse, and close the product. After the test, I was given tax papers, as well as a drug test. I was then contacted by them an offered two positions. Either in house (working directly for Comcast), or Contract. I chose Contract because my weekly Commission isn't capped. I am a hard worker, so I like to get the maximum out of my work.

    I simply asked about the pay scale. It worked for me, and I accepted. I started the next day.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Comcast in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by an outside recruiter who told me everything they were looking for in a candidate. She was paid when I was hired so it was in her best interest to give me all the tools I needed to get the job. The main thing they were looking for was work ethic and lots of ambition. After I was briefed by the recruiter, I had to call a number and leave a 1 minute voice message stating my name, position applying for, and introduce myself and my background. They wanted to hear how I sounded over the phone. Then I was called back to set up an interview. The interview wasnt very difficult. I convince them that I was ambitious, driven, and could handle rejection well.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Comcast in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview basically consists of being told how open and free the schedule is, but if you don't perform, they will bring the hammer down. They ask questions relating to how well you can handle rejection because you will encounter it 99% of the time. You are expected to sell one line of business for every 30 doors you knock. Once hired you will go through a 6 week training program that consists of getting to know the company. Then you will learn pricing structures and sales practices. Finally you are sent out into the field with a set of about 500 doors to knock and basically let loose. The expectation is 8 cable tvs, 8 internet, 4 phones, and 1 home security system installed every 2 weeks.
