    Technical Support- DIRECTV Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DIRECTV in December 2014.

    Interview

    Apply online. Once you do this someone will call you to set up a phone interview. If you do good on the phone interview, then you have a face to face interview. They are super nice and give you a tour of the faculty and tell you about the benefits and all of that good stuff. They will then call you in about three days to tell you if you got the job or not then they send you a offer letter. If you get the job they require a drug test and a background check.

    It was very brief, waited for about 5 minutes in the lobby. Two interviewers, trading off questions. Situational based questions, how do you react to certain situations etc. very nice people, didn't take the job but only because I received better offer. I would have been fine accepting the position.

    Install Technician Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at DIRECTV (Greensboro, NC).

    Interview

    The process was very informal, uncomfortable and rash. The individual interviewing me did not appear professional and seemed irritated at having to interview anyone. I did not get a good impression off the individual interviewing me or the description of the job

    Interview Questions

    • I was only asked if I had an SUV and was told I had to supply my own 24-foot extension ladder   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at DIRECTV in November 2014.

    Interview

    Talked to a recruiter at my campus job fair. Got an automated email from HR a month after to schedule a phone interview. Phone interview lasted half an hour and was mostly behavioral, with two simple technical questions. At the end of the interview I was told that they'd schedule me another technical interview sometime in the next week, but I never heard back. I emailed them multiple times and they never responded. 2 months later I got an automated email saying that I've been rejected/they're looking for other candidates. The fact that they promised me an interview and backed out on it made this overall a negative experience.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at DIRECTV (Boise, ID) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I had a brief phone call to set up an interview. She asked about my job history 10+ years. I have been working for a call center for a year now, and prior to that retail management for 3 years. I am also a full time student, and I was not offered the job. I have nothing that would have hindered me from getting this job. They hired several people from my current job that are very young with little to no work experience making more than I currently make.

    • Wanted every detail of my job history from 10+ years ago.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DIRECTV.

    Interview

    A staffing agency interviewed me and setup a 30 minute phone interview with DirecTV. After my phone interview, I was brought in for an onsite interview. I was told to set aside 3 hours for my onsite interview and it took approximately 2 hours to answer questions from 3 different team members. I thought I was going to be bombarded with questions, but I believe the interview process was also making sure I wanted to fit in the culture of the team as well, which made for a refreshing interview environment.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me to draw a house on the whiteboard.   1 Answer
