    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at DIRECTV.

    Interview

    Applied for position online and was called the very next day and asked to do a phone interview. Afterwards was scheduled for a 1 on 1 interview the following week. The interview was very laid back and casual. Overall it was a quick and easy interview. A lady called me 10 minutes after I left and told me they wanted to offer the position and I accepted. Then she told me to be on the lookout for an email with directions for drug screening and etc.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at DIRECTV.

    Interview

    It was okay. But communication dropped out of the blue. I received a call from a recruiter one day, had a relatively positive phone conversation with them, and was even told that they would follow up with me for another interview. But I never got a call back. If they didn't want to keep pursuing me, they should have at least politely let me know instead of leaving me hanging.

    Director Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DIRECTV (El Segundo, CA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Fairly smooth but the EVP was a jerk. I was approached by a recruiter via phone and email. The recruiter was a third party sourcing group. After the intro interview call, which was standard, i had a phone interview with the inhouse recruiter. That then led to an In person with hiring manager. Then full day of in person interviews with leadership team as well as potential direct reports. Wrapped up with last minute interview with EVP.

    Installation Technician Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at DIRECTV (Redding, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Phone interview, promising $70k in the first year, sold the job hook line and sinker. Impossible to hit that goal. Very friendly offering a good salary, but failed to explain that pay was based on piece rate and that new hires were given lower paying installs.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at DIRECTV.

    Interview

    Your contracting company sets up an in person interview. Sometimes this is early in the morning. You bring your portfolio and speak to members of the team you're planning on working with, managers, then senior employees. This is a long interview process because you have to meet and speak to everyone. Coming prepared with portfolio samples, print outs, and hand outs is best.

    It was done with a recruiter after the company agrees to take you on. This was done by phone.
