    It all started with applying online, after that i was able to go into their office for an interview. The interview process felt as if it was just a way to see what the potential employee looked, and sounded like. It was not a hard interview, nor did they ask any challenging questions.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at DIRECTV.

    Interview Details

    You will have to apply for any position thru the online job posting system. The HR group will screen candidates and can take some time to hear back from unless the position is needing to be filled immediately and even then can take a week or so. The first conversation will be a phone interview with a HR recruiter and then if they like what they hear they will pass it on to the hiring manager to determine if you get a face to face interview. You could also have to go thru a second phone interview before the face to face if they have a significant amount of possible candidates.

    Interview Details

    Quick phone call initially. Multi round interview with five different employees. Interview started with entry level person and went all the way to head of the dept. Questions varied but a knowledge of the company and products was expected. Short breaks were given but only when an interview ran short. After interview, the HR contact called with the offer and discussed that over the phone and provided an offer letter. Also, be prepared for a drug test.

    Interview Questions

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at DIRECTV.

    Interview Details

    Phone interviews initially--had about three of those. Then came onsite and had about 4 hours worth of interviews... Some video conferencing due to leadership being remote. Interviewed with my potential team and management.

    Interview Questions
    • Discussing a difficult leadership situation. Generally managers at DIRECTV are not managers in the strict sense. There are a lot of people the title but might as well be individual contributors. This role was unique since senior leadership really wanted to ensure that the managers actually know how to manage people.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    The recruiter vets you to make sure you will accept the offer prior to HR actually sending out the official offer. DIRECTV HR moves slowly so, it has proven necessary for the recruiters to take that step in order to make sure the hiring process is not short circuited by a surprise rejection of the offer.
