Software Quality Assurance Analyst Interview

Software Quality Assurance Analyst

I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at DIRECTV.

Interview Details – There is no technical question for me, which is quite bizarre. They asked me about all my projects listed on my resume. And they like one-page resumes.

Customer Care Manager Interview

Customer Care Manager
Boise, ID

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at DIRECTV in April 2013.

Interview Details – After applying online I received a call from a Directv HR manager that completed a behavioral interview. The process took about 40 minutes. I asked if she felt I would move forward with the hiring process and was told she was completing a number of interviews and would share results with the hiring manager. After two weeks I received an email stating I would not be further considered for this position.

Interview Question – They use behavioral interview process. Make sure to know the information on your resume and use the STAR method for responding to questions   Answer Question

Java C/C++ Engineer Interview

Java C/C++ Engineer

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at DIRECTV.

Interview Details – I was contacted by a HR after applying online on their website. He asked me about my availability for the following week to schedule a screening, but didn't reply to my email(and a follow-up mail) , after I sent him my initial availability.

After two weeks, he sent me an email asking for a fresh availability. We setup a time and later spoke over the phone. He asked me if I have ever worked on Java. I said I haven't, but I can pick it up as I am comfortable with C++/OOP etc. He said that's OK and Java is not a mandatory requirement but preferable . Then he asked me how much would I rate myself on the scale of 1 to 5 on Java expertise . I thought -- What the .. Didn't I just mention that I have never worked on Java :). Anyways, I said a modest 1.

Then he said that the Manager of the team will call me at a particular time next week.
I prepared well for the interview and kept waiting besides the phone for the call. No one called. I called up the HR and left him a voice mail and also sent him an email.

No response for few days. I sent him another email after few days to which he replied that the manager is looking for someone with more experience. Then why was the interview scheduled ? Even if they changed their mind for not interviewing, shouldn't the candidate be informed about it (Ideally before the scheduled time, if not later)?

So, overall pretty bad or ill-coordinated process. I am not sure if it was just one particular case or who was responsible for it, but then it was an unpleasant experience.
